RALLY TO CELEBRATE THE SAHARAWI NATIONAL DAY
Australia Western Sahara Association
To call on UN to organise the promised referendum for self-determination in Western Sahara.
Senator Kerry Nettle will addrress the rally.
WHERE: UN Information Centre, 46-48 York Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000
WHEN: Friday 27th. February, at: 12.30-13.30
On 27 February 1976 the Saharawi Republic was proclaimed, while their war of national liberation was taking place. By celebrating this day we are supporting the Saharawi struggle for self-determination and an end to Moroccan occupation of their country, Western Sahara.
13 years have passed since the UN should have organised a referendum in Western Sahara to give its people a chance to decide their own future and exercise their inalienable right to self-determination.
The Saharawis have waited too long and have been very patient and helpful to the UN efforts to organise the promised referendum while the Moroccans have got away with obstructions and delaying tactics.
We want to express to the UN and the Australian government that 29 years of exile and suffering are enough. It is high time the UN assumed its responsibility and implemented its own resolutions and the Peace Plan for Western Sahara.
More delays mean more suffering for the Saharawi people.
ORGANISE THE REFERENDUM NOW, FREE WESTERN SAHARA
