Re: AMRPENWS condemns the violent crackdown on Saharawi peaceful demonstrators

Press Release

In light of the bitter reality experienced by the city of El-Aaiun as it is under a very tightened police siege, and witnessing the constant harassment to all Saharawi activists including media activists , and in defiance of all local and international norms , conventions and signed treaties , the Saharawi platform organized a peaceful demonstration in the city of El-Aaiun, in Western Sahara,. The early call for this uprising had its impact on the local Saharawi population where masses of protestors from all walks of life, backgrounds and gender went out the evening of Saturday, March 19, 2016 protesting peacefully out in the streets and the different districts of El-Aaiun city. This demonstration took place at the Smara Boulevard where hundreds of Saharawi peaceful protestors showed support and solidarity with the Gdeim Izik prisoners group who are currently on a hunger strike for nineteenth days now demanding their legitimate economic, social and cultural rights as well as the right to have a fair trial in front of a civilian court. . Some other protestors showed support for the UN Secretary General who has been under a heavy media and diplomatic attack by the Moroccan government.   As usual, the Moroccan repressive forces besieged and dispersed brutally the demonstrators, then then intervened violently against them using excessive force. This led to the fall of many victims who suffered from different injuries of varying severity. Among the falling victims, a member of the Association for the Monitoring of Resources and for the Protection of the environment in Western Sahara, Assabi Yahdih, as he was brutally beaten up on various parts of his body. He was injured at level of his head and face. Here is a preliminary list of the fallen victims:

Sidi Mohammad DADACH, Duff Ahmed Babu, Salha Boutangiza, Ali Saadouni, Hamma Hallab, Sleima Limam, Aziza Pisa, Maryam Bourhimi , Noordine Argoub, Amrezig Ali, Mahjoub Abbad, Ghali Bouhala, Said Haddad ,Ebric Bahi, Salem Ataiwf, Sidi Mohamed Alouat, Ambairkat Abdul Karim, Mohammad Haddi, Fatma Alaquaoui, Bemba Lafqir, Aicha Yaya, Lahabib al-Khalidi, Lamatt Zaghman, Sukaina Saadi, Rubio .

This cowardly brutal crackdown and excessive use of force against unarmed civilian demonstrators is just another manifestation of Morocco’s refusal to allow the Sahrawis right to exercise freedom of expression, assembly and association foundation, as well as the police siege of the Western Sahara region that aim to isolate the territory from the rest of the world by blocking free access to all the all foreign delegations that try to visit the region, including the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, as well as his personal Envoy, Mr. Christopher Ross.

There is no doubt that this cynicism and intransigence can only confirm the extent of the lack of seriousness of the Moroccan state in the implementation of its international obligations vis-a-vis the respect of human rights. This also another illustration of how hard Morocco also comes as an attempt to dissolute international relentless efforts to implement the resolutions on the Western Sahara issue.

Accordingly, the Association for the Monitoring of Resources and for the Protection of the environment in Western Sahara declares the following:

  • Unconditional solidarity with the Gdeim Izik prisoners group they are conducting a hunger strike for the nineteenth day.
  • Condemnation of violent intervention against peaceful Saharawi protesters in El-Aaiun / Western Sahara.
  • We demand the international community to assume its full responsibility to denounce and to halt the Moroccan systematic campaign of repression against the Saharawi civilians.
  • We urge the UN and the Security Council to speed up the settlement peace plan in order to enable the Saharawi people gain all their rights, especially the right to self-determination.
