No witnesses, no proof. Only confessions signed under torture.

In February 2013, 25 Saharawi activists were sentenced by a military court from 2,5 years to lifetime for taking part in the organisation of the Gdeim Izik protest camp in November 2010. The camp demanded the socio-economic rights of the people of Western Sahara.

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.
