During its meeting under the chairmanship of Prime Minister, Abdelkader Taleb Omar, NS bureau stressed that "the only crime of the Saharawi political prisoners on hunger strike is their rejection as all Sahrawis of the Moroccan occupation and their call to enable the Saharawi people to exercise their legitimate and inalienable right to self-determination and independence."     


The bureau called on national institutions and all the Saharawi people, wherever there to sympathy with the Saharawi political prisoners subject to certain death because of disregard and neglect of the Moroccan authorities that turn a deaf ear to their legitimate demands.


The bureau of NS has appealed the international community and organizations of human rights to intervene immediately to allow Gdeim Izik group members to enjoy the most basic rights and exert pressure on the Moroccan authorities to release them. (SPS)
