Award winning activist Aminatou Haidar is known as the Sahrawi Gandhi for her peaceful advocacy for self-determination and human rights in Western Sahara despite her torture and imprisonment in Morocco’s prisons. She received the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award for “extraordinary courage and heroic leadership” and the Civil Courage Prize for “steadfast resistance to evil at great personal risk.”
