Five Moroccans Set Themselves On Fire Protest The Country's Lack Of Jobs

| Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

Wait. Why?

Apparently the best way to prove you're employable is to set yourself on fire.

Five unemployed Moroccan men set themselves on fire to protest widespread demonstrations over the lack of jobs Thursday.

On the whole county's unemployment rate is only 9%, which is similar to the US's current unemployment rate. HOWEVES, it's nearly DOUBLE that for university graduates.

That totally blows, but why set yourself on fire?

Yeah… we still don't understand that part.

    Perez. Or whoever you are.

    Don't you have any, any intelligence? Or empathy?

    These people are desperate! Remember the Arab Spring? It started by a single street vendpr who committed suicide for the same reasons.

    How heartless can you be???

    You, Perez-wannabe-employee, gotto be kidding? I agree on everything already said: "Do you have any intelligence? My god, you are an idiot! You wouldn't have a clue about what they went through before this living in your mom's basement." And this one: "You don't understand because your generation are nothing but a bunch of lazy self-entitled douchebags." My only plea for you is: Please! Get a clue! Or otherwise, stop commenting on world-stuff that exceeds your level of everything.

    You don't understand it because you live in a world of imaginary boyfriends and teen boy crushes. 12 year old girls are like that.

    Re: perezzass – WHATeveryou say sweetheart, much better than you have tried to insult me, you are just LAMER than must, next from you will be "your momma wears combat boots" darlin you have NO idea who i am. killing yourself because you live in a society with 9% unemployment is just stupid. the US has that or higher. why then don't you set yourself on fire in solidarity with those dumbasses. You could really make a statement then. you know in the late sixties the boys in yellow were setting themselves on fire with some regularity where i was, they had the same effect that these guys will,,,, ZERO. but we did respect THEM, THEY WERE ABOUT A HIGHER ORDER,,, NOT FUCKING JOBS

    The problem is not that the unemployment rate is 18% for college grads its that the employment that is out there in a country like Morocco mostly offers a wage that is not possible to live off of. The problem is that the gov is corrupt and criminal in an extraordinary way, enriching itself while empovrishing its people, torturing those who oppose it and forbidding free press. There is a level of desperation and rage that makes someone like these students set themselves on fire that we do not understand in America.

    Also, a country like Morocco has existed under the oppression of this type of dictatorship for thirty years. They know that while they are hungry and being imprisoned for their beliefs it is different in other countries and they are pissed off and fed up. Bad as the situation is in the US, nobody who is Occupying Wall Street has been tortured, or imprisoned for decades and none of those people are starving, although they are jobless. Who knows what will be happening in our country in 10 years?

    This is incredibly sad, and the worst part is - it's only going to get worse.
