Panafrican Youth Movement denounces the W. S. military occupation
The 8th Congress of the PYM, meeting for three days at Algier, denounces, in a message to the Sahrawi people, the illegal military occupation of parts of W. S. by Morocco. The PYM affirms that "it will continue to support strongly and inconditionnally the legitim struggle of the Sahrawi people for their right to self determination and independance. The liberation of Africa will not be complete so long as the SADR has not been entirely liberated". The Congress called urgently the U. N. to take concrete mesures in order to force Morocco to leave its requirements and to allow the implementation of the peace plan.
