Police blocks nurses’ march in Morocco


RABAT, Morocco

 Police here in the capital blocked on Saturday a march by nurses who demanded changes in promotion procedures.

Demonstrators took to the streets after a call by the National Nurses Coordination, who wanted protesters to march to the parliamentary building.

But police blocked the march at Bab-el Had square.

Nurses have demanded amendments to a law that regulates the profession and does not allow two-year degree holders to be promoted, according to a statement by the group.

Officials in Rabat announced earlier that the march would not be allowed to proceed under Morocco’s coronavirus measures.
