The Saharawi Human Rights Defensors condemn the Moroccan government's decision to deport human rights activists from the villages of Western Sahara and South of Morocco. In their appeal, they urge the Moroccan State to stop inmediately its decision to deport human rights activists, to reintegrate the human rights activists at work, to liberate all Saharawi political prisoners, and to judge all actors of human rights violations. Also, they urge the international community, particularly the United Nations, to assume their responsibility in protecting the respect of human rights in Western Sahara.
