Moroccan protesters held without trial on hunger strike

Riot police apprehend demonstrators during a protest against unemployment in front of the Moroccan Parliament in Rabat on April 2, 2014Nine jobless Moroccan graduates held for three months without trial after being arrested at a protest in the capital are on hunger strike, activists said on Monday. The strike comes amid high youth unemployment in the North African country, where peaceful protests by school-leavers unable to find work are often violently dispersed by the police. Abdelali Bargouti, a member of the support committee for unemployed detainees, said the nine went on a 48-hour hunger strike last week to protest against the conditions in which they were being held and the delays to their trial. “But the prison authorities did not respond to their demands, so they decided to begin an open-ended hunger strike,” Bargouti said.
