The long history of the Rif's rebellious spirit.

The Rif, the northern mountain region of Morocco with a long history of rebellion, has been the center of a protest movement for eight months. It has exposed divides: between developed coastal cities and a neglected, resentful interior; between young people eager to challenge authority and an older generation fearful of change; and between an all-powerful monarchy and a street movement with no traditional leaders. Learn more about this fascinating region and its people.
