Morocco has, after Egypt, Fajri our very our "Flagman"

Remember the flag man in Egypt? Who climbed God knows how many levels up to take down the Israeli flag and raise the Egyptian one? https://www.facebook.com/welovetheflagman

Well, only two days after the so called democratic elections  in Morocco thousands of people in over 60 cities protested against this masquerade. Also Mohamed el Fajri joined the protests.
Fajri jumped over the parliament fence  to raise the February 20th movement flag. The Parliament, that is suppose to represent the people of Morocco is a symbol of corruption.

He got arrested and quickly afterwards a sit-in was held in front of the same parliament in the capital of Morocco.

Thank you, Mohamed el Fajri, for jumping over a fence we thought was too high to jump over and making clear that the parliament belongs to the people. I know the road to democracy and freedom is a long one. But if Fajri can jump over a huge fence... We can, hand-in-hand, side-by -side, make our beloved Morocco a democratic and free country!
