RABAT - About 10,000 teachers staged a new protest in the Moroccan capital Rabat on Sunday to demand permanent jobs, hours after police had used water cannon to disperse an overnight demonstration.

The teachers, many of whom had spent the night in the streets of Rabat after the first event, marched from the education ministry to the square in front of parliament where police had intervened after midnight to prevent them from spending the night in the main Mohammed V Avenue.They want an end to renewable contracts in favor of permanent jobs that offer civil service benefits, including a better retirement pension.



Some also shouted political slogans such as "This is a corrupt country" and "We are ruled by a mafia," urging Prime Minister Saad Eddine El Othmani and Education Minister Said Amzazi to step down.
