This post is also available in: Español (Spanish) Português (Portuguese (Portugal))

PUSL and FUSO .- ​​The Western Sahara Foundation (FUSO), in the course of its work during years of observation and monitoring of human rights, violations and genocide committed against the Saharawi people, understood that a report should be prepared summarizing the torture processes to which this population is subjected to so that it can be understood and evaluated. It was therefore opportune to publish this report, which is supported by the numerous reports and articles of the Foundation and other international organizations, and in collaboration and in accordance with the work that has been carried out with Por un Sahara Libre .org (PUSL).

The report “The torture suffered by the Saharawi population under occupation” is disseminated with the aim of being a work tool, to awaken consciousness and and awareness. Having an accessible and assimilable content for anyone with or without knowledge of human rights or law, enabling a scientific and technical approach to the situation of torture in the occupied territories of Western Sahara, supported and justified by the cases studied and the numerous interviews that ere made.

In addition, the first objective of this report is to reach international forums where important questions are decided and debated on the protection of the Saharawi population and the right to self-determination and where the necessary mechanisms should be adopted to stop this genocide and torture, in order to help these organizations and nations change their policies on this issue and take a more active position in the defense of the Saharawi population.

For all these reasons the Western Sahara Foundation (FUSO), together with Por Un Sahara Occidental .org (PUSL), has been working on the preparation of this report, which is now published, and which has been carried out with rigor, professionalism and honesty that a subject as sensitive, hard and difficult as the torture of the Saharawi population deserves.
