morocco brutality against sahraouis women

EL Aaiun (occupied capital Saharawi population in the different Saharawi cities of the occupied zones organise demonstration, sit-ins and peaceful gatherings almost everyday demanding the release of the 37 Saharawi political prisoners, raising prise Saharawi national flag and claiming for the independence of their country from the Moroccan colonial yoke in the different occupied cities of Western Sahara.

Saharawi population, especially in the occupied capital of Western Sahara "El Aaiun Almost", organise demonstrations, sit-in or simply small groups gathering everyevening in the main streets of the city, sometimes very late in the night in defiance of the non-declared interdiction of movement the Colonial forces of occupation are imposing on the Saharawi cities since the starting of the "Intifada of Independence"

Last Saturday, for instance, 2 demonstrations took place almost at th same time both in El Aaiun city (Western Sahara) and in Assa (south Morocco). Both demonstrations had the same claims: the immediate release of all Saharawi political prisoners and the independence of Western Sahara. Demonstrators chanted the same slogans in both demonstrations and they raised SADR’s flag in El Aaiun, what normally is responded to by a brutal reaction from Moroccan colonial forces against the population.

Despite of the peaceful nature of the demonstrations, the Moroccan colonial forces do not hesitate to intervene with brutality against the participants and also against any unlucky person who may be just passing by the place of the demonstration.

These brutal interventions normally cause confrontations between demonstrators and the forces of repression. The results: new arrests, torture of demonstrators (who can hardly be identified because of the state of siege imposed on the territory and the close surveillance imposed by the different Moroccan services of repression), abductions and imprisonments without judgements or after iniquitous judgments.

Last September the 5th, hundreds Saharawis demonstrated, Monday evening in Maatallah neighbourhood in the occupied capital of Western Sahara "EL Aaiun", to express their rejection of Moroccan colonial presence in their country and claim for the immediate release of the 37 Saharawi political prisoners in hunger strike since last August the 8 in the different Moroccan jails.

Consequences: many persons injured and others arrested after a violent intervention from the Moroccan forces of repression, who dispersed the demonstrators brutally, reported eye witnesses who could not, however, tell about the real number of the victims.

In September the 8, at least 6 young Saharawis were arrested during demonstrations and confrontations between peaceful demonstrators and the forces of repressions.

The new detainees, who join the other 37 Saharawi political prisoners, were brutalised and tortured by the Moroccan police under the orders of the famous torturer, Ichi Aboulhassan, the Officer of the Group Urban of Security (GUS), and other Moroccan officers from the Criminal police.
