Ministry of Occupied Territories and Communities calls for sit-ins

Shaheed Alhafed, February 2, 2019 (SPS) - The Ministry of the Occupied Territories and Communities has called for sit-ins on February 6, in front of the European Parliament in Brussels and the Occupied city of El-Aaiun, and another sit-in on February 12, in Strasbourg.

The sit-ins are to express the rejection of the agreements signed between the European Union and the Kingdom of Morocco, including the territories, coasts and riches of Western Sahara, in flagrant violation of international law and the ruling of the European Court of Justice.

The Ministry of Occupied Territories and Communities’ aim is to demonstrate the rejection by the Sahrawi people to these agreements, hold the European Union responsible for the exploitation of the riches of an occupied country on the United Nations’ agenda as a non-self-governing territory, and respond to the excessive violence and harassment by which the Moroccan occupation authorities received the delegation of Sahrawi human rights activists returning from the liberated territories.
