The protesters chanted slogans calling for "the dignity of the doctor". They reject the "non-payment of their demands" and threaten to elevate the tone in the coming weeks.

Apart from the lack of the necessary equipment and skilled professionals in public hospitals, the doctors, among others, an increase of salaries and allowances. They demand payment according to the salary index 509, equivalent to nearly 15,000 dirhams per month. Currently they get paid according to the salary index 336, equivalent to 8600 dirham per month.
