Coronavirus lockdown triggers protests in Polisario-run camps in Algeria

Merchants in the Polisario-Run Tindouf camps in Southwestern Algeria stepped up their protests against a leadership they blame for the surge of coronavirus cases.

The protesters decried the endemic corruption within the Polisario ranks with blessings from the Algerian mentor.

A lockdown has deprived many merchants and artisans from their source of revenue without benefiting from any compensation.

The camps have been rattled in recent months by protests calling for political reform and more equality as protesters raised banners and chanted slogans against corruption.

The Polisario leadership has been lambasted by donors, including the EU, for its embezzlement of humanitarian aid with Algerian connivance.
