The "March against Marrakesh" was announced on Facebook. Some 35,000 people have shown interest in attending the rally so far, while almost 12,000 said they were going. The Catholic Flemish student movement, the Flemish Nationalistic Student Association (NSV) and the youth wing of the Flemish right-wing political party Vlaams Belang are reportedly among the groups expected to attend the march.
