The leader of demonstrations that rattled the northern Moroccan town of al-Hoceima in 2017 has started a hunger strike against his solitary confinement, his father said Thursday.The protests erupted after the gruesome death of fishmonger Mouhcine Fikri in October 2017, who was crushed inside a rubbish truck trying to recover fish confiscated by police.The al-Hoceima demonstrations along with the protests that hit the mining town of Jerada in early 2018 have been the most intense since the 2011 unrest that had prompted King Mohammed VI to devolve some of his powers to an elected parliament.
