Saharawis claim Royal visit

Unadvertised King Mohamed VI is now visiting the part of Western Sahara since thirty years occupied by his troops. The repression against saharawis has drastic increased.

The King wants to emphasize "the Moroccan Southern Provinces", despite no states in the world recognize a Moroccan sovereignty and the UN calls for decolonization on saharawi conditions.

Morocco has announced a proposal for UN SC in April, offering regional autonomy but not independence. This is totally contrary to existing peace plans, agreements and UN decisions based on Saharawi self-determination. In addition the Kingdom is working for an agreement on fishing in occupied waters.

We agree with the saharawi protests! Moroccan royalties and fishermen should not go fishing in foreign waters!
