Protest camps destroyed. Demonstrations in El Aaiun.
Moroccan forces intervened brutally against the peaceful protest camp early this morning. Many are injured. Big demonstrations in El Aaiun all day. Some Saharawis are killed, not known how many. First image of killed Saharawi (above) circulated this afternoon.
The Saharawi above is called Mahmoud Gargar Babba. Also Moroccan soliders are supposed to have been killed. Several buildings on fire, among them the TV station of Moroccan authorities on the occupied land.
Since 1975, three quarters of the territory of Western Sahara has been occupied by Morocco. A majority of the population is still living in refugee camps in Algeria. Those who remained in their homeland are subjected to serious harassment from the Moroccan occupiers. For more than 40 years the Sahrawis have been waiting for the fullfilment of their legitimate right to self-determination.
