Decolonizing Western Sahara. It is, in short, the last colony in Africa. Yet Morocco has been allowed to continue illegally occupying Western Sahara for over four decades. The Polisario Front fought a war with Morocco until , when the UN brokered a ceasefire agreement. That deal was supposed to set the stage for a referendum on independence in Western Sahara the following year — a democratic solution.
But Morocco has prevented it from ever taking place. Morocco has also repeatedly obstructed progress toward further negotiations. Through it all, we have maintained our faith in the international community, and in the UN-led political process that was launched in It is time for that faith to be rewarded. In its latest resolution on Western Sahara this year, the UN Security Council unanimously called for the launch of a new political process and acknowledged that the status quo is not acceptable.
The Security Council recognizes that this is the best route to achieving decolonization in Western Sahara, protecting human rights, enabling self-determination by the Saharawi people, and setting the stage for long-term stability in the territory.
The progress report that they deliver to the Security Council in six months should establish what that mechanism will be, as well as a timetable for negotiations; it should not just be a record of exploratory efforts.
In the meantime, we in the Polisario Front will continue to work toward securing the rights of the Saharawi people. Whereas other countries often fold to Moroccan pressure, for fear of harming trade deals or cooperation over security and migration, the law has proved to be a reliable ally for the people of Western Sahara. This is why we have often turned to the courts when the political process has failed us.
And the EU is not alone. This past May, the Panamanian authorities detained a Canada-bound ship carrying phosphates that had been illegally mined by a state-owned Moroccan company in occupied Western Sahara.
And South African authorities stopped a New Zealand-bound ship containing 54, tons of phosphate rock from Western Sahara. The high court in Port Elizabeth sent the case to trial to determine ownership, and the Polisario Front won a major victory — and ownership of the cargo — when Morocco announced that it would not contest the case.
We have no intention of abandoning that process. But, if Morocco continues to engage in such activities, we will ensure that its efforts are as costly and cumbersome as possible, both for private companies and state actors.
We will fight for our rights in every venue available to us, from national courts to the court of international public opinion. Over the last four decades, the UN Security Council has repeatedly proved unwilling or unable to bring Morocco to the negotiating table. We, the people of Western Sahara, hope that this time will be different.
But, until we know that it is, we will not stand idly by while a hostile occupier tramples on our rights, and pillages our resources. Me gusta esto: Me gusta Cargando Por favor, vuelve a intentarlo.
