The video shows the aggressive police intervention of a peaceful protest in Laayoune called by Sahrawi human rights groups to mark the anniversary of Morocco's invasion of Western Sahara. Shot from what appears to be a hole in a wall or roof across the street, the video shows three women chanting in a plaza, as uniformed, helmuted officers fill the plaza and use begin to surround them individually to force them apart. At 1:21, we see officers shove a woman in a white and black clothing forward, and at 1:28, we see officers surround a woman in pink on the ground. These scenes are also captured from a different angle in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQSlYX12wc4 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-mApaDK8lI At 1:41 the video shifts to show undercover officers confronting several women protesters and appearing to argue, as uniformed officers stand by watching.
