Observers do not believe Morocco will be another Egypt, Tunisia or Libya. But demonstrations are growing, and the next few months could be crucial for the country's future. 

For nine weeks, there have been marches calling for a new Morocco. Sunday saw another major gathering, with thousands swarming streets across the country. 

Inside Story presenter Emike Umolu discusses with guests: Lahcen Haddad, a professor at Mohamed the Fifth University in Rabat; Stefan Simanowitz, a journalist specialising in North Africa; and Hilana Rizki, a member of the February 20 protest movement.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Monday, April 25, 2011.
