Saharawi students in El Aaiun brutalised by Moroccan settlers
El Aaiun, 13/12/2005(SPS) Saharawi students of the secondary school of Cooperation and of Lyssan Edin, in El Aaiun, were brutalised on Monday by Moroccan settlers for having lifted the flags of the Saharawi Republic in the entry of their school, reported concordant sources to SPS.

On Monday morning, before class, all the students of he secondary school of Cooperation rallied around a 4 meters long flag of the Saharawi Republic, which was lifted in front of their establishment, and on which was written " for the independence of Western Sahara and the evacuation of the Moroccan settlers".
At the same moment in the secondary school of Lissan Edin, many slogans an photocopies of the flag of the Saharawi Republic were distributed and dispersed in the hall o the school, the same source indicated.
As a result to these operations, the Pacha of the occupied city of El Aaiun, accompanied with some secret agents arrested many students, in the mentioned schools an many others, it was indicated.
The same Moroccan colonial official gathered more than 25 students of the same schools to force them sign a document of which the content is still ignored, but the students were unanimous in refusing to sign what pushed the Pacha to ill-treat them and arrest them after that, the same source indicated.
For this reason the Saharawi population organised demonstrations n many streets of the city of El Aaiun, especially in the street "Sidi Mohamed Dedech", to express their unhappiness and rejection of the behaviours of the Moroccan settlers. They chanted slogans claiming for the Saharawi people’s right to self-determination and lifted the flags of the SAD, before they were severely repressed by Moroccan forces in the streets "Ali Salem Tamek", the same source added.(SPS)
