On October 9, 2010 residents of Laayoune, Morocco began setting up a protest site in the desert east of the city. The protests were for additional housing and job opportunities to accommodate the growing population. Pro-Polisario provocateurs soon infiltrated the demonstration site to “hijack” the protest. The protest had nothing to do with Polisario demands for independence. Once the provocateurs began intimidate and threaten the peaceful protesters, Moroccan authorities decided to dismantle the protest site before the circumstances deteriorated further. In the early morning of November 8, 2010, Moroccan police authorities, carrying only non-lethal weapons, sought to peacefully dismantle the protest site.
This video contains images of the police intervention from cameras carried by Moroccan authorities and a confiscated camera phone.
The images are extremely graphic and gruesome.[wpvideo Z4VxVbqr]
