Casablanca - There is a day in Moroccan history that brings to date Moroccans’ pride of their ‘Moroccaness’ and their patriotism towards their country. There is a day in Moroccan history that even the new generation relates to and acknowledges its significance. This day reminds us all of the boundlessness of our love to this North African land, the land of the Atlas Mountains. It is the Moroccan Independence Day.
