WSC communication with the European External Action Service17.07 - 2018
Following a letter from the European Union's External Action Service (EEAS) to the Western Sahara Campaign UK in January this year, inviting us to a meeting, we replied asking for more information. The communication is in relation to the EEAS's supposed aim to consult our organisation in reference to seeking the permission of the Saharawi people regarding future EU-Morocco trade and fisheries agreements.

We never received a reply, or even the courtesy of an acknowledgement, to our second letter. Despite this the WSC is included in the list of organisations that engaged in consultation.

Below are the letters from the EEAS and our replies.

MINURSO 2018: Write to your MP and Security Council Members23.01 - 2018
Progress towards a political solution to the conflict in Western Sahara remains deadlocked. For the Saharawi, the day-to-day grim reality of stalemate persists. All continue to be denied the right to self-determination which the UN ceasefire agreement promised them some 26 years ago.

We need supporters to write to their local MP in the UK to urge the UK government to take the lead in the UN Security Council in the run-up to the MINURSO vote in April to include a human rights monitoring mandate for the mission.
