Saharawi civil disobedience anti Moroccan occupation. Break with the Moroccan ID
“Morocco has occupied our land and murdered our people in the name of religion. How could we share with them a religious holiday?”, Hmad Uld Ali Uld Bachir, aka Hmad Hammad.

How ANC militants diversified their methods of fighting apartheid’s South African racist regime, one of which was what Mandela called “civil disobedience.” Diversification of the struggle to defy apartheid’s civil laws, backed by Anglican Church that sympathized with the regime against blacks, a bet Nelson Mandela described in his confrontation with apartheid: “The church approved this policy and contributed to the religious base of apartheid, suggesting that Afrikaners were God’s chosen people, while blacks were a species subordinate to them. In the Afrikaner view of the world, apartheid and religion marched side by side. “In the same vein, this expression of Saharawi militant Hmad Uld Hammad:” Morocco has occupied our land, kidnapped, murdered and buried our living relatives and compatriots.
