Thousands of protesters march in Morocco’s capital Rabat, decrying the “high cost of living and repression,” amid surging inflation and rising social discontent.

“The people want lower prices… The people want to eliminate despotism and corruption,” chants the crowd, estimated by journalists to be around 3,000 people, the largest such rally in recent months.

People converged from across Morocco for the protest, which was also called to highlight the cases of several jailed bloggers and journalists.
