In 2010, a protest camp was established in the occupied regions of Western Sahara. This camp was named “Gdeim Izik” and many political figures have recognized it as the first movement that started the “Arab Spring”. Unfortunately this month long protest was brutally dismantled by forcible measures taken by Moroccan authorities against the peaceful Sahrawi protesters of Gdeim Izik, which resulted in a genocide and atrocious crimes against humanity committed by this aggressive country. We lost tens of lives, and many others were wrongfully obtained.
After many demands to hold a fair civil trial for the detained innocent protesters, today, the verdict has been announced: - Perpetual Chain:
Ahmed Sbai / Brahim Ismaili / Abdalahi Lejfauni / Larosi Abdelyalil / Mohamed Bachir Butanguiza / Mohamed Bani / Abhah Abdalahi Ahmed Sidi. - 30 years in prison :
Naama Asfari / Mohamed Burial / Chiej Banga. -25 years in prison:
Hasan Dah /Abdalahi Taubali / husain Ezaui / Mohamed Lamin Haddi / Mohamed Embarek Lafkir / Juna Babait. Sidahmed Lamyaied. - 20 years in prison:
Mohamed Tah / El Bachir Khada / Abdalahi Taubali. - Released:
Deich Daf: Sentenced to six and a half years, but the sentence is less than the time spent in jail / Bakay Arabi: Sentenced to four years and five months, the sentence is less than the time spent in jail.
A couple of days ago, I saw a video in which appeared a daughter of one of the prisoners. When she was asked about what she thought the verdict would be, she grinned at the camera and said that her dad was going to be released. Just the thought of the pain and the disappointment that she must be feeling brings tears to my eyes.
The Moroccan dictatorial regime has not only wrongfully put in prison innocent people, but it still has the audacity to do such degrading act in the name of justice when we know that this system was purposely made to beak us.
I might not be entirely sure how the universe works which can be very frustrating at times. Regardless, I know that no matter what, Good always triumphs over Evil. So in the meantime we will continue to fight and we will not be silenced until justice is served 🥀
