Rabat – The Morocco 21 association is calling for the Moroccan people to fly their country’s flag above buildings, shops, and cars on the 40th anniversary of the Green March on November 6.
The initiative received a warm welcome on social networks. Whether on balconies, windows, shops or cars, according to the association it is very important that everyone shows his or her enthusiasm to celebrate this symbolic date.
Immediately after the association launched its campaign, the initiative went viral on social media, with many Moroccans around the world hailing the idea.
Facebook users shared their photos with the Moroccan flag on Facebook and on the page dedicated to the event, which has already about 5,000 likes.
The association said that the initiative was well received by Moroccans, who responded by proudly displaying their patriotism in creative ways.
The organizers added that if Moroccans continue to show their enthusiasm for the symbolic date, that marks the country regaining its Saharan provinces, they expect that the initiative will strengthen the meaning of the heroic period in citizens’ collective memory.
Every November 6, Moroccans celebrate the anniversary of the Green March, one of the largest, longest, and most peaceful marches anywhere in the world.
The Green March was a strategic mass demonstration of some 350,000 Moroccans in November 1975, led by the late King Hassan II, to regain sovereignty on the southern regions of Morocco.
