Scores of protesters gathered in Jordan’s capital Amman on Saturday, calling for constitutional reform and the establishment of parliamentary democracy in the country.

Led by members of the „National Follow-Up Committee“, a pro-reform coalition including military veterans, leftists and Islamists, the protesters railed against corruption and economic policies that they claim have brought the country’s economy to its knees.

Photographs and videos posted on social media showed scores of people gathered for the rally in a public square. One group held aloft a banner bearing the slogan „the royal national anthem is slavery“.
