Rally in Paris in Solidarity with Population Held Captive in Tindouf Camps in Algeria
Paris – A rally in solidarity with population held captive in the Tindouf camps in Algeria was organized in Paris on Saturday, at the initiative of a group of associations of Moroccans from Europe.
This sit-in comes to “alert and raise the awareness of the French and international public opinion about the atrocities, the ill-treatment and the despicable actions committed by a horde of mercenaries against the Moroccan Sahrawis held captive in the camps of shame in Tindouf “, underlined the Coalition of Moroccan associations in Europe in a press release.
Actors of Moroccan civil society in Europe and many Moroccan residents of France met at the Square of the Republic to take part in “this peaceful gathering, in order to put pressure on the Algerian military regime and its supporters to release the Moroccan Sahrawis in captivity in the Tindouf camps”.
Waving the Moroccan flag and singing the national anthem and patriotic songs, the participants denounced “the plight of the Moroccan Sahrawis held against their will by the Polisario militias with the support of the Algerian military regime”. They also called on the international community to bear witness of the situation of these Saharawis “held hostage in the Tindouf camps, instrumentalised and used as a means of pressure to obtain humanitarian aid that the Polisario’s henchmen are embezzling for their own benefit”.
The Coalition includes mainly the French-Moroccan Asli Association and the Federation of Figuig Associations.
