Moroccan Police forces would anything to silence Saharwis in the Occupied territory. They are beating civilians and torturing them out in the streets and inside prisons and local police stations. The whole Territory is a big prison where human rights are denied to Sahrawis. the moroccan Regime is brutally mistreating Sahrawis and savagely oppressing everyone including children and elders.

Pictures are a wintness to what happens on a daily basis in all districts of the cities in the occupied W.Sahara. One can only weep on the fate of Sahrawis under occupation while the world is watching silently. Morocco still retains its position as an opresseor with the blessing of some powerful Western States.

"Sahawri who are detained and arbitrarily arrested have no impartial legal representation.I’ve heard of terrible stories involving torture, rape, forced abortions, and a constant pressure by Morocco on the Saharwi people" says Blogger from : WWW.FOREIGNPOLICYBLOGS.COM

Beleive it or not, this still happens in cities of the occupied W. Sahara where atrocities of the moroccan regime goes unpunished.
"Morocco’s boasts about its human rights record fall flat when it allows the police to beat and intimidate rights activists like Rahmouni and Alansar", said Sarah Leah Whitson, director for the Middle East and North Africa Division at Human Rights.

Pictures of brutality and severe opressiom can tell more than Words can say!

Amnesty says in oine of its reports on Western Sahara(

"Since May 2005, the territory of Western Sahara, particularly the town of Laayoune, has been rocked by a series of demonstrations. In many of them, Sahrawi (Western Saharan) demonstrators have expressed their support for the Polisario Front or called for independence from Morocco.(1) These views are anathema to the Moroccan authorities, which have not only responded in a heavy-handed manner to the protests, thereby exacerbating tensions, but also widened the scope of the repression by arresting and detaining long-standing human rights activists who were monitoring and disseminating information on the crackdown."

US state Department 2008 Annual Report on Western sahara and Morocco:"International human rights groups and Sahrawi activists maintained that the Moroccan government subjected Sahrawis who were suspected of supporting either Western Saharan independence or the Polisario to various forms of surveillance, arbitrary arrest, prolonged detention, and in many cases."

Again, the US state Department annual Report of 2008 on w. Sahara and Morocco talks about: " Youths supporting independence were reportedly detained and mistreated. Activists claimed that they were regularly taken into custody, beaten, and released, generally within 24 hours, without being formally arrested or charged"

Pictures of oppression says:

Morocco has been repeatedly criticised by international human rights organizations such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch[5] and the World Organization Against Torture, Freedom House, Reporters Without Borders, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and in 2006 in a report by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights for its actions in Western Sahara.
