Saida Charaf: Polisario Separatists Have Interrupted My Concerts

Morocco World News

Rabat – Southern Moroccan diva Saida Charaf has spoken out about constant provocations by Polisario supporters that she has faced during some of her previous concerts abroad.

Speaking at a pre-concert press conference at Villa Des Arts in Rabat, Charaf said that she has faced many provocations from Polisario supporters in Barcelona and Canaries.

In a video of the conference, the artist mentioned experience during one of the Royal Air Maroc concerts in Canary Islands, Spain.

“While I was singing during the concert, a group belonging to the Polisario Front had been in attendance. One of them raised that sharwita [a piece of cloth] they call it flag […],” she said.

“I grabbed it and stepped on it and told them that this is a Moroccan concert.”

“The people who have no ‘democracy’ nor ‘dignity’ do not deserve to have their own flag – this is only a ‘sharwita’,” she added.
