The Moroccan Sahrawis Association of Europe for Development and Solidarity organized a protest on Saturday at the United Nations Plaza in central Geneva to denounce the crimes committed by Polisario militias in the Tindouf camps.
Participants at the event, which was held on the sidelines of the 40th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, drew attention to the tragedy of children being recruited by Polisario militias in the Tindouf camps, recalling that these children, aged between 7 and 14, And move them to different countries to undergo training on how to deal with firearms and explosives.
They condemned the killing of many children by forcing them to train with explosive bombs, before they were secretly shackled, while the survivors were recruited into militias, armed gangs or terrorist groups.
According to the Secretary-General of the Association, Ali Jeddou, this stop aims to draw the attention of the international community to the grave violations of human rights in the Tindouf camps and to invite the forces of peace, democracy and freedom to intervene more and more to end the plight of children who have been recruited into armed forces and groups.
He told the press that the participants in the rally called on the international community and humanitarian organizations to intervene urgently to put an end to the tragic situation of the families held in the Tindouf camps under the Polisario’s control, which violates the most basic human rights.
On the other hand, the atrocities committed by the Polisario with the support of the Algerian military junta are increasingly driving young people in the Tindouf camps into hiding in the hands of terrorist groups and criminal networks active in the Sahel and Sahara.
The vigil is part of a broad awareness campaign called “The White Dove”, organized by the Moroccan Sahrawis Association of Europe for Development and Solidarity to raise public attention to human rights violations committed by Polisario leaders and militias.
