Sahrawi prisoners in Moroccan jails are on hunger strike in solidarity with one of their inmates

Sahrawi civilian prisoners of the Gdeim Izik group, will start a 48-hour hunger strike as from today, Monday, in solidarity with the Sahrawi civilian prisoner, Yahya Mohamed Al-Hafedh Izza, according to the Association for the Protection of Sahrawi Prisoners in Moroccan Jails.

The Saharawi Press Agency (SPA) stated that the Sahrawi civilian prisoners of the Gdeim Izik group aim, through the action they announced – according to the association – to “denounce the targeting and violation of the basic legitimate rights of Yahya Mohamed Al-Hafedh Izza, after Bouzkarn local prison proceeded to his transfer towards the local prison of Moul El Berki in the Moroccan city of Safi, amid critical health conditions, and in solidarity with the battle of hunger strike he has been going through since July 3rd.

It is worth reminding that the civil prisoner and Sahrawi human rights defender Yahya Mohamed Al-Hafedh Izza had started an open hunger strike on July 03, 2021, to denounce the transfer he was subjected to and to protest against the deteriorating and miserable detention conditions he has been experiencing in the local prison Moul El Berki in the city of Safi along with the cruel and humiliating treatment throughout his arbitrary detention.
