Moroccan trainee teacher Lamia Zguiti took part in protests this month hoping to put a stop to planned cuts to education jobs.Lamia, 24, joined a protest in the southern city of Inezgane against new plans to limit hiring in public education sector, just one of a raft of reforms that Morocco's government hopes will revive public finances.Touching public jobs, subsidies and other benefits that Moroccans have enjoyed for years is starting to create social tensions, triggering protests, sit-ins and strikes that will challenge the government's resolve.Moroccan police broke up most of the teacher trainee demonstrations across the kingdom, but the protesters say they will keep on fighting to cancel the government decrees.Thousands took to the streets in the northern city of Tangier two months ago to protest over high prices for water and electricity, in Morocco's largest demonstrations since those 2011 protests demanding political reforms.Morocco's four largest labor unions have organized protests against the reform and said a general strike has been discussed.
