NGOs in Tan-Tan and Guelmim denounce meeting of pseudo Union of Saharawi students of Seguia El Hamra and Rio de Oro

NGOs' representatives and civil society actors in Tan-Tan and Guelmin denounced the organisation of the so called congress of Sahrawi students of Seguia El Hamra and Rio de Oro in the Tindouf camps, describing it a "polisario orchestrated sham and an attempt to deceive the international public opinion.

This so called congress is "no more than a means to distort facts and a sham democracy meant to deceive the international public opinion", they told MAP.

Abderrahman Raghayýþ, member of Al Mawahib association for social education in Guelmim, said this congress "will not achieve any objective since populations in the Tindouf camps are suffering poverty and systematic abuses of freedom of movement".

For his part, human rights activist Mahjoub Haida noted that this hopeless congress is an attempt to deceive the international public opinion over "the Polisario's sham display of democracy".
