Republicanism in Morocco

Flag of the Republic of Morocco, used by republicanist activists
Flag of the Rif Republic (1921-1926)

In the history of Morocco, there have been a few attempts to establish republican forms of government:

  • Berber rebels in the Rif Region first established the Rif Republic for six years (1921-1926) under Abd el-Krim against Spanish and French invasions of Morocco. The Berber Rif republic lasted until 1925 when the rebels tried to take the city of Fes, in a failed attempt to expand the republic into French-occupied Morocco.
  • During the 2011–12 Moroccan protests, a few protesters chanted republican slogans. They were mainly from the Al Adl Wa Al Ihssane Islamist movement and the Ila Al Amame Communist party. These slogans weren't repeated by the vast majority of the protesters.
