The “cards” distributed according to the free will of the local governor “Wali”, In Western Sahara they distrbiuted them in coordination with local delagates who are military. the employees have no right for vocations , retirement or health care .

In the particular context of occupation and discrimination in hiring , jobs mainly go to Moroccan settlers,For many saharawis this subsidy is the basis of family survival .

The three activists are part of the Saharawi committee of those expelled from their jobs .
On their placards they denounced the policy of impoverishment of the Sahrawis, the systematic plundering of Saharawi phosphates and fishes but also the facilities granted to Moroccan settlers for all aspects of daily life.

The demonstration lasted an hour, before the police and a Qaid forced the activists to leave.
