Human Rights Violations in Western Sahara is denounced

The participants to the international conference, held on December 13-14, 2008 in the Spanish city of Malaga, strongly denounced the human rights’ violations committed by the Moroccan State in Western Sahara.

The Saharawi population is continuously deprived of most of their basic civil rights, such as the freedom of expression, meeting, association, the freedom of movement and physical integrity, POLISARIO Front’s representative, Bucharaya Beyoun, said in his intervention in the conference.

Beyoun, said that these violations are committed in front of the eyes of the international community, which can be considered as a kind of complicity and encouragement to the Moroccan oppressor.

The conference of Malaga was organized on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was marked by the participation of many Saharawi human rights activists from the occupied zones.

Beyoun highlighted the need to raise awareness amongst the international public opinion of the repression systematically perpetrated by Morocco against the Saharawi people, and said that his people will not give up fighting until the realisation of independence.
