Human rights activist Sultana Khaya was one of the women attacked by the occupation authorities when she participated yesterday in the demonstration for self-determination of Western Sahara and in support of all the Saharawi political prisoners detained in Moroccan prisons in Bojador.
After being thrown to the ground with kicks and blows, she took refuge in her house and hoisted the flag of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic in her window on the first floor, as can be seen in the video.
The police who surrounded all the houses of activists yesterday in a display of cars, vans and hundreds of agents, demanded that she remove the flag. Sultana replied: I will not remove the flag of my country, the flag is my honor! Come get it yourself out if you’re really men!
In 2007, Sultana Khaya was a victim of aggression and violence by the occupation authorities who bruttaly removed one of her eyes with baton blows, she spent several days in the hospital without any assistance and with maltreatment by hospital staff that is composed only of Moroccan settlers.
