Gdeim Izik families in Rabat forced to end protest

At the end of this morning the Moroccan authorities interrupted the peaceful protest of the relatives of the Saharawi political prisoners in front of the General Administration of the Penitentiaries and Social Reinsertion of the Kingdom of Morocco.

Families have been protesting last week against the ill-treatment of Sahrawi political prisoners known as the Gdeim Izik group demanding the right to visit, feed and regroup these human rights activists in the same prison.

This group of 19 Saharawi political prisoners was separated and dispersed by 7 different prisons in Morocco on 16 September.

Although there has already been a meeting between relatives and the head of the General Administration of Penitentiaries, the prisoners’ conditions have not improved, being several of them on hunger strike.

Families in the occupied territories of Western Sahara are also protesting in front of their homes and also were victims of police attacks.

These attacks are committed 12 days before the visit of the sub-committee against torture of the United Nations.
