Tifariti (liberated territories), Dec 16, 2011 (SPS) - The President of Republic and Secretary General of the Frente POLISARIO, Mr. Mohamed Abdelaziz, has sincerely called on the peoples of Tunisia, Libya and Egypt to support the struggle of the defenseless and oppressed people of Western Sahara in their struggle for dignity, freedom, democracy and self-determination, in the moral report he presented Thursday before the 13th Congress.

Secretary General of the POLISARIO Front underlined that the changes prevailing in the Arab region “confirm that there will be no future for injustice and tyranny and it is inescapable to respect right and will of peoples to dignity, freedom, self-determination and independence,” confirming that Moroccan regime “will not win hearts and voices of the Saharawis.”

“The international community, which unhesitatingly proceeded to the adoption and implementation of resolutions to protect civilians in many parts of the world, is called upon today to assume the same responsibility for the serious violations committed by the Moroccan State against Sahrawi civilians, since its military occupation of Western Sahara on 31 October 1975, which have been evidenced by specialised international organisations, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights,” said the President Mohamed Abdelaziz.

“Whilst underlining the attachment of the Sahrawi people to the use of all forms of legitimate struggle and resistance to achieve their internationally recognised rights, it reiterates its readiness for constructive cooperation with the efforts of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and his Personal Envoy to reach the only just solution to the conflict by enabling the Sahrawi people to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination and independence,” he added.

He also renewed call on the United Nations to work to stop the looting by the Moroccan government of the Sahrawi national resources, to remove the Moroccan military wall of separation, to release Yahya Mohamed el Hafed Izza and all Sahrawi political prisoners, to account for more than 651 Sahrawi disappeared by the Moroccan State, and to institute an effective UN mechanism for the protection, monitoring and reporting on human rights in Western Sahara.
