Third International Conference of Solidarity with Saharawi Students calls for end of Sahrawi people suffering

Dakhla (refugee camps) August 26, 2018 (SPS) - The Third International Conference of Solidarity with the Saharawi Students held Saturday in Dakhla, refugee camps, under the theme "the respect of international law for the liberation of the last colony in Africa" called for the intervention of the international community to put an end to the suffering of the Sahrawi people by enabling them to exercise their right to self-determination.

The conference appealed in particular to the United Nations and the Security Council to expedite the implementation of resolutions and recommendations related to the Western Sahara conflict in order to organize a free, democratic and fair referendum in which the Sahrawi people freely decide their destiny.

It praised the endurance and resistance of the Sahrawi people in their struggle for their right to self-determination and independence.

The conference called for the need to protect human rights in the occupied territories of Western Sahara and to monitor and report on them, stop the illegal looting of the natural resources of the territory, and dismantle the Moroccan military wall that represents a crime against humanity.

The Third International Conference of Solidarity with Saharawi Students was attended by delegations from Algeria, Spain, Cuba, Mauritania, Norway and Namibia. (SPS)
