The Unified Socialist Party (French: Parti Socialiste Unifié) (Arabic: الحزب الإشتراكي الموحد‎), or PSU, previously known as the Party of the Unified Socialist Left (French: Parti de la Gauche Socialiste Unifié), or GSU, is a political party in Morocco.

Historical roots[edit]

The Unified Socialist Party is a mixture of various movements that sprung up throughout the 60s and the 70s. It first started with the spin-off "23 Mars" (a reference to the 23 March 1965 students' uprising), a radical, Maoist student fraction of the largest group in opposition to the Moroccan monarchy, the National Union of Popular Forces.
