2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the invasion of Western Sahara by the Kingdom of Morocco. 24 years have elapsed after the signing of a peace plan between the kingdom of Morocco and the Polisario Front that will allow a referendum on self-determination in the territory. Yet, the referendum is as elusive as ever, while the human right situation continues to deteriorate in Western Sahara.
A more decisive action by the UN is needed for the human rights protection, the organization of the referendum and the prevention of a relapsing back into violence in the territory. A meaningful negotiation requires a strong message from the EU. The indifference, the complicity and the silence is contributing to the deterioration of the situation in the region, is constricting its economic development and it is obstructing a needed peaceful solution.
Mr. Aliyen Kentaoui, representative of The Polisario Front in Sweden will hold a lecture concerning the current situation of the occupation.
What role is Europe playing? How does the conflict violate human rights and how’s the situation for the displaced Sahrawi people?
