Atiko Barrax, 36, human rights activist. Pictured in Dakhla, Moroccan controlled Western Sahara (Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic): 'I was born in Dakhla in 1973. My first memories are of the military and there being no light in the streets. I remember seeing injured Moroccan soldiers coming to the hospital during the war. Everyone here who believes in independence cannot get work, all the Saharawi work in human rights, there is no other work. We cannot fish. We cannot do anything.'..
