We, the Saharawi students are prevented from our rights such as right of Expression, Education, Transport, Master studies…
Every year we encounter serious troubles of registration at the Universities, problems of transfer…etc In addition to the brutal attacks by the Moroccan authorities in respond to our peaceful demonstrations calling for our right to Self-Determination.
A photo presentation of the situation of Saharawi students in two years time
(2007. 2008) as an example.
We appeal to you the conscience of the world to support us in our peaceful struggle to Self-Determination and Justice.
We want you to be aware about our situation now, we are continuing our struggle to achieve Justice and that the responsible of the killing of the Saharawi students be prosecuted in International courts.
We demand an International Protection, considering the brutal attacks by the Moroccan authorities and the serious consequences on students.
We demand a serious pressure on Morocco to stop those flagrant violations of Human Rights in Western Sahara and Universities.
And that respect our rights as Saharawis, to Self-Determination
and our right as students to express our opinions.
We need a presence of foreign journalists Human Rights activists and international observers to follow our case and to support us in our struggle.
