Maimouna, a face of the repression inflicted to Saharwis of Tindouf, Amnesty International informed

She is only 21 years old, and has become in few weeks the symbol of fight of all the Sahrawis suffering from the negation of their fundamental rights by the Polisario Front guerilla. The importance of traditions some will say, of the “culture”, according to others, but there is still Maimouna Bashir Mokhtar, a nurse settling in Spain since 1999 and would be currently in Tindouf camps after having been taken away from the peaceful life that she led in Spain with her boyfriend Pablo Miranda. The latter is extremely worried, since he does not have any news about his fiancée who should have carried a short stay in Tindouf camps last summer, a stay having been transformed to a forced permanent residence.

It is a real ordeal that the young woman should be undergoing, who will be likely forced to marry within the coming weeks. However, it is precisely this situation that should mobilize the international community in order to denounce the segregationist and racist practices of the Guerilla, good will prevail over evil, and light over obscurantism…
