Statement on behalf of the Western Sahara Support Group

The WSSG notes with sadness and condemns the use of violence by the Moroccan state in the occupied Western Saharan territory. Our aim is to extend a hand of solidarity and alleviate the poverty of a dispossessed people who are subject to the whim of global indifference and political bargaining by those that deny the right to self-determination for the Saharawi people. Our solidarity has never been more urgent given the collapse of the 29 year old ceasefire following incursion by the Moroccan armed forces in Sahrawi controlled land and the increased need for the Sahrawi to both defend and provide for themselves.
