An older usage of the word expatriate was to refer to an exile.
Alternatively, when used as a verb, expatriation can mean the act of someone renouncing allegiance to their native country, as in the preamble to the United States Expatriation Act of 1868 which says, 'the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people, indispensable to the enjoyment of the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' As far back as antiquity, people have gone to live in foreign countries, whether as diplomats, merchants or missionaries.
The numbers of such travellers grew markedly after the 15th century with the dawn of the European colonial period.
Authorities later denounced "groups of individuals, including some in hooded sweaters, who provoked and stoned the police."Khadija Ryadi of the Moroccan Association for Human Rights (AMDH) said about 150 people were arrested during the violence, based on her group's sources."Forty were still detained this morning, many of them from neighbouring communities who were arrested when they came to demonstrate," said Ryadi."Residents no longer gather in a single neighbourhood to demonstrate," she said."They now protest in several neighbourhoods at the same time, and the police intervene immediately, sometimes using tear gas despite the presence of women and children."The situation was calm on Tuesday in Al-Hoceima, where protesters marched through streets banging pots.
An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of their citizenship.
In common usage, the term often refers to professionals or skilled workers sent abroad by their employers, who can be companies, governments, or non-governmental organisations.
