Switzerland must take responsibility!
Media release - The signs point to war in the decades-long conflict between Morocco and the Sahrawi liberation movement Frente Polisario. Human rights activist Laila Fahkouri has been staying in the Sahrawi refugee camps in the Algerian desert since March. The situation is particularly gruelling for young people, she tells terre des hommes schweiz. Condemned to do nothing, they are prone to take up arms themselves.
The ceasefire between Morocco and the Frente Polisario, the political representation of the Sahrawis, lasted almost thirty years. In mid-November, the conflict escalated and now the signs point to war. The young Sahrawi Laila Fakhouri is campaigning for a peaceful solution to the conflict and for the rights of her people. Since March, the human rights activist has been stuck in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Algeria. From there, she reports to Sylvia Valentin of terre des hommes switzerland on the gruelling situation, which runs counter to a peaceful solution to the "forgotten" Western Sahara conflict.
