Tell the UN to MONITOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN WESTERN SAHARA
black_prison.jpg

The UN mission in Western Sahara (MINURSO) is the only contemporary UN mission that does not monitor human rights.  Torture, false imprisonment and violence continue, and so far the UN has done nothing to stop this.

Act Now! We have a chance to change this. On 17th April Security Council negotiations on Western Sahara will begin Please tell the Security Council human rights must be monitored!

Key points

• Last year's measures to address human rights abuses failed.
• Human rights abuse continues unabated.
• In August and September 2011 alone 34 instances of serious human rights violations perpetrated against Saharawi citizens by members of the Moroccan Security Forces were reported.
• MINURSO is the only peacekeeping mission established since 1978 that does not have a mandate to monitor human rights.
• They must call for MINURSO to monitor human rights.

You can also contact the French mission and condemn their previous efforts to block human rights monitoring.
