Revolution Remixxx 2011: Protest Song Marocaine
MetadataShow full item record
In late 2010, those of us interested in the Middle East were surprised by persistent protests in Tunisia. My family and I were evacuated from Cairo on February 2, 2011. I returned to Egypt on February 13, and a week later, a major day of rage started the revolution in Morocco, with large protests breaking out in all major cities and even many minor ones. Like millions, I avidly watched the music videos and music clips that supported and resulted from the protests in Tunis and Cairo. In particular, I checked the Internet for news from Morocco. I was unsurprised to see Moroccans taking part in massive protests. I was also not surprised to see them using songs and chants. What did surprise me was the presence of one song.
