Protest in front of Moroccan embassy after pedophile scandal

Dozens gathered in front of the embassy of Morocco in Brussels to protest against king Mohammed VI, who granted pardon to a Spanish pedophile. The protesters demand an official excuse of the king and want more democracy. Members of the “Mouvement du 20 fevrier” (a pro-democracy group in Morocco) and the Belgian Workers Party were present. The protesters also condemn the bloody suppression of protests in Morocco.
