Another year like no other. Apart from for the Saharawi people.
The majority of Saharawi people still live in exile in the harsh desert. In the occupied territories a brutal repression continues unchallenged. Particularly worrying is the case of Sultana Khaya.
Amnesty International reported: At 5.30am on 15 November, dozens of members of the Moroccan security forces in civilian clothes broke into the house of Saharawi woman activist Sultana subjected her to rape and sexually harassed her sisters and mother. Shockingly Sultana has been under house arrest for most of the past year for fighting for the Saharawi people's inalienable right to self-determination. Their right under international law. Sadly even a case like this does not get the attention and international action it merits.
Of course, the Western Sahara Campaign has continued to raise this and other issues in our parliaments, the foreign office and in court. But action is still lacking.
That may change in 2022, when we expect to win our court case against the UK government's post-Brexit illegal trade agreement with Morocco.
Without your support for the WSC we could not continue our part in the fight for Saharawi self-determination.
