Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Morocco's capital Rabat Sunday to demonstrate against the jailing of leaders of a protest movement in the predominantly Berber region of Rif.A court in Casablanca in June sentenced 39 people, including protest leader Nasser Zefzafi, to terms of up to 20 years in jail in connection with a protest movement that shook Morocco in late 2016 and early 2017 .The Al-Hoceima demonstrations, along with protests in the mining town of Jerada in early 2018, marked the biggest unrest in Morocco since Arab Spring protests in 2011 prompted King Mohammad VI to devolve some of his powers to an elected Parliament.
