Whitewashing Western Sahara's Struggle for Freedom

Aminatou Haidar


2016 OFF in Oslo


Aminatou Haidar is a well-known human rights activist from Western Sahara, a disputed territory in West Africa claimed by Morocco. Haidar has spent her life fighting for the rights of the people of Western Sahara. But her call for peace and justice has been met with periodic imprisonment, torture, violent intimidation, and near-constant threats. Haidar took the stage at the Oslo Freedom Forum to discuss the history of Western Sahara, the violence the residents have been subjected to for decades, and the years she’s spent dedicated to nonviolent resistance.
