Mass protest against illegal activities by foreign companies in occupied Saharawi territories

Dozens of people on Wednesday staged mass demonstration in Smara, Saharawi refugee camps, to protest the continuous illegal exploitation of Western Sahara natural resources by foreign companies, in total conspiracy with the Moroccan occupying state.
Organized as part of the national campaign “no to the looing of the natural resources of occupied Western Sahara”, the demonstration rejected the presence of any multinational company, such as Kosmos Energy and Total among many others, in the occupied part of Western Sahara.
