This week-end, Aminatou Haidar was deprived of her passport by Moroccan police and expelled to Spain.

Spain refuses to let her return to Morocco. Haidar is now on hunger strike, demanding from Spanish authorities that she is permitted to return.

Photo was taken by Man Chagaf, at the airport of Lanzarote, before Haidar was kicked out from the airport. Photo can be used freely. Click on photo for high resolution.





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.
