Thousands of Moroccans took to the streets of the capital Rabat on Sunday for a protest organised by left-wing and consumer-advocacy groups to complain about increasing living costs. According to Reuters, the demonstrators chanted slogans such as "Don't touch my bread" and "No to privatisation" and waved banners reading: "Don't touch citizens' buying power."
