Communique on Repression of Mauritanian Workers
Vol.5 No.11 (Spring 1978), p92
by the Secretary-General of Ugtsario (General Union of Sahraoui Workers), general strike in Mauritanian iron mine, Rabat expansionists and Nouakchott lackeys The General Union of Sahraoui Workers wishes to inform international opinion of the ferocious repression recently carried out against our brother workers in Mauritania by the Moroccan army and its Mauritanian helpers. Following the launch of a general strike at the Mauritanian iron none and in the towns of Zouerate and Nouadhibou the authorities, already engaged in the repression and genocide of the Sahraoui people, appear to have answered the workers' demands with a barbarous and inhuman repression.
