“Africa Eco Race” Rally accepts Saharawi conditions and crosses the territory with Western Sahara flags
La Realidad Saharaui Newspaper / DLRS, Monday 13 January 2010.- The Saharawi information portal Nuchatta in its January 13 edition informes that the Rally Africa Eco Race has accepted the measures demanded by the Saharawi population that has congregated since Saturday at the Saharawi border crossing with Mauritania, El Guerguerat. After the meeting with Saharawi activists, the race has been able to cross the territory carrying flags of the Saharawi Republic.
The source indicates that on Sunday the Moroccan occupation authorities sent several off-road cars to the area with the aim of assaulting Saharawi activists and expelling them. This is shown in a video that documents an attempt by two vehicles with Moroccan license plates, which were trying to force the road open. But Sahrawi activists prevented it and expelled Moroccan agents in the presence of a MINURSO patrol.
