European Democrat Students ask for self-determination for Saharawis
20 February 2016, the student organisation of the European Peoples Party (EPP) passed a resolution calling for the right to self-determination in occupied Western Sahara.  
Published: 18.03 - 2016 14:52Printer version    
The resolution was adopted with a vast majority on EDS' annual winter congress in Berlin. EDS is the biggest political student organisation in Europe.

The text urges the European Commission, the European Parliament and Member States "to call upon the Moroccan government to honour its commitment in the 1991 ceasefire agreement to respect the Sahrawi people’s legitimate right to self-determination and independence".

The resolution further underlines that "European Democrat Students truly believe that the Sahrawi people have the right to self-determination and to be given the opportunity to decide on this through a referendum".

Read the entire resolution on the website of the Norwegian Young Conservatives.

Since 1975, three quarters of the territory of Western Sahara has been occupied by Morocco. A majority of the population is still living in refugee camps in Algeria. Those who remained in their homeland are subjected to serious harassment from the Moroccan occupiers. For more than 40 years the Sahrawis have been waiting for the fullfilment of their legitimate right to self-determination.
