The coordination of Mauritanian Opposition held a massive rally on Wednesday [November 21] asking France to stop interfering in the country's politics.  The protesters also reiterated their demands to end the military regime in Mauritania.

Mejdi Ahmed attended the rally and tweeted:

@mejdmr: فعلا مسيرة المعارضة والمهرجان اليوم كانا ناجحين حاشدين كبيرين و سيكون لهما ما بعدهما،، النضال مستمر #موريتانيا

@mejdmr: Indeed, opposition march and today's festival were successful in attracting many people … they will have an impact later on. The Struggle Continues # Mauritania
