Tens of thousands of people were gathered at a free concert in center of Oslo where Manu Chao played on 25 August 2012.

Chao also lent the microphone to the Saharawi refugee Senia Abderahman during the concert.

Media and organisers estimate the number of spectators somewhere between 40.000 and 110.000 people.








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.
