URGENT CALL TO ASSIST THE SAHARAWI CIVIL POPULATION IN THE AREAS OF WESTERN SAHARA MILITARLY OCCUPIED BY MOROCCO
Faced with the serious human rights situation in Western Sahara and the brutal repression of the Moroccan occupation regime against the civilian population, the Saharawi Delegation in Spain makes an URGENT appeal to all human rights organizations to intervene immediately and demand to the Moroccan government the cessation of this wave of aggression, and thus guarantee the protection of the Saharawi population and respect for International Humanitarian Law.
The Sahrawi Delegation describes as unacceptable the silence of international organizations in the face of the incessant practices of repression and the campaign of arbitrary detentions against Sahrawi civilian citizens. Concrete measures are also demanded for Morocco to comply with its international commitments, measures that the Spanish State must promote as part of its legal, political and moral responsibility in Western Sahara.
We deeply regret the shocking silence of the European political parties and institutions. The European Union, an institution that defends human rights and international legality, cannot be allowed to become a lawyer for a regime famous for its attacks against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Since the violation of the ceasefire by Morocco and the Sahrawi declaration of a state of war in self-defense, in the occupied areas a revenge has been initiated by the Moroccan occupation army against the defenceless Sahrawi people, generating a situation of terror and anguish , marked by the massive deployment of units of the Moroccan occupation army, break-ins and persecution of activists.

To the kidnapping of the president of CODESA, Babozid Lbaihi, and the activists Salek Baber and Khalid Boufraioua, tortured and later abandoned on the outskirts of the occupied city of Bojador, are added the arrests and inhuman mistreatment against Hassanna Abba, a member of the executive board of the League for the Protection of Sahrawi Prisoners in Moroccan Prisons (LPPS), and Lahcen Dalil, member of the Saharawi Instance Against Moroccan Occupation (ISACOM).

Special anguish generates the case of the sisters Khaya, Sultana and Ouaara, subjected to house arrest since November 19, 2021 for their public and peaceful demonstrations against the Moroccan occupation. After repeated attacks and raids on their home throughout these 5 months, yesterday they were attacked and tortured with sticks and metal tubes by soldiers in civilian clothes.
Marruecos pisotea los derechos humanos, hace caso omiso a la No Injerencia en los Asuntos Internos, ignora el derecho internacional humanitario, ejerce una política gangsterista y, aun así, para algunos, sigue siendo socio privilegiado.

For this reason, the Saharawi Delegation in Spain calls on all defenders of peace and freedom to unite their voices and not allow Western Sahara to be a victim of Moroccan impunity and international silence.
