Ms. Saadani Maouelainin, Corcas member, participated in the seminar as a representative of the organization "OCAPRACE INTERNATIONAL" in North Africa. She noted the total lack of security and compliance with legal and human rights in the Tindouf camps in Algeria. These are key factors in the establishment of systematic violence against the Saharawi woman for her indoctrination and absolute submission to ensure life in the camps controlled by the Polisario Front.
Ms. Saadani focused on international action to be taken to open an ongoing dialogue with the inhabitants of the camps and break the siege imposed on the Saharawi women to force them to live in the camps against their will. If this tragic situation continues for several decades it will result in more serious consequences for many generations of Saharawi women who remain detained on Algerian soil.
Dr. Charles Graves, president of the Forum for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (FICIR) chaired the seminar. Mr. Sayed Salih al-Hakim, head of the Centre for Dialogue dependent Najaf Al Hakim Foundation and Widad al-Hassani, president of Women Guidance Network in Baghdad, and Mohammed Serkal human rights activist and coordinator of the United Nations in the United Kingdom, Biro Diawara, program manager of the network of organizations of human rights in Senegal (RADDHO) took part in this meeting.
It should be noted that "Al-Hakim Foundation" has consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). This is an international non-governmental organization active in Iraq in the field of promoting dialogue and intercultural communication and the promotion of democracy and good governance in civil society. It has international offices in Geneva, New York and Beirut and oversees 500 centers for humanitarian, educational and cultural activities.
