Moroccan forces repress "violently" peaceful demonstration in occupied El-Aaiun

El-Aaiún (occupied territories), Jan 8, 2017 (SPS) - Moroccan forces "violently" intervened Saturday to disperse a peaceful manifestation  in the occupied city of El-Aaiún by the Coordination of Unemployed Sahrawi Graduates to denounce the illegal plundering of Western Sahara resources.

The demonstrators chanted slogans and raised banners against the policies of poverty and marginalization carried out by the Moroccan regime against the Sahrawis and its illegal plundering of the wealth of their country.

Moroccan military forces besieged the demonstration site before intervening against the peaceful demonstrators, leaving several wounded among them. (SPS)
