In a symbolic stand, the Saharawi unemployed young men placed themselves in a row chained to each other in front of the employment office in El Aaiun city, this Monday 19th of February.

The protesters showed in this way their resolve to continue to demand thrir right to employment and against the discrimination they suffer in the occupied territories, where the Moroccan settlers occupy almost all available employment.

A clear apartheid strategy of the Moroccan Authorities.

Hand in hand, like one body, against the oppression, discrimination and illegal occupation these young saharawi protesters are living proof that the agreements between the European Union and Morroco do not benefit the saharawi population.

The morrocan occupation forces attacked and hit violently the demonstrators to open their chains which took a long time since the chains were difficult to remove.

Several of the protesters had to be transported to the hospital.
