The video shows chaotic scenes on Smara Street in Laayoune, as uniformed police use force to break of a protest of several women. At 1:05, we see a woman shoved forward, surrounded, and followed by a large group of uniformed officers. At various points in the video, we hear women screaming off camera. At 3:40, several women are shoved and followed by plainclothes and uniformed officers as they cross the street. At 4:05 several women are shoved by a plainclothes officer who is followed by uniformed officers. One woman falls to the ground while others are pushed around aggressively. The video ends with a group of officers using their bodies to force a protester away. The protest called for self-determination of Sahrawi people and took place during a visit to Western Sahara by Hervé Ladsous, UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations.
