The pro-human rights activist in Western Sahara independence and militant for independence, Sahrawi Aminatou Haidar, has really thrown a monkey wrench into the plans of Mohamed Driss El Yazami Sabbar, the two leaders of the National Council for Human Rights, the official human-rights-boutique of the Makhzan [Morocco’s power élite].
She comes forward as the leader of a humanitarian organization, the Saharawi CODESA, in order to officially request to participate in the Second World Forum on Human Rights, which is scheduled to open in Marrakech on November 27.
Driss El Yazami and his accomplice Mohammed Sabbar are faced with a dilemma: Either they agree to invite Haidar and she will have no qualms about stating things that will anger the Moroccan regime, namely that it is a Police State whose leadership shamelessly plunders the country, imprisons political dissidents and journalists, and oppresses the Saharawi population.
If the duo El-Yazami Sabbar refuses her request, then the regime will once again be forced to reveal its true nature. For now, El Yazami and Sabbar remain silent…Surely pending a decision sent down from on high. Suspense!
