The camps in the Tindouf area are surrounded by militia and Algerian forces where no one can move, and are real concentration camps, said the director of the Paris Observatory for Geopolitical Studies Charles Saint-Prot, in an interview broadcast Monday on Med1 TV channel.

For two weeks now, real uprisings are taking place in these Algerian-controlled camps, recalled the French expert, adding that it started on January 23 with a sit-in staged outside the UNHCR headquarters in Tindouf camps to protest against human rights abuses by the Polisario militia and Algerian forces.

This is spontaneous movement of exasperation and, it must be emphasized, that it is led mainly by young people who are fed up with the harsh conditions of living, the incredible corruption of separatist gangs’ leaders and the repeated violations of the most basic human rights, said Saint-Prot.
