Message on World Press Freedom Day

The Saharawi Journalists and Writers Union issued an open letter to the international public opinion and international community to condemn the Moroccan systematic human rights violations in Western Sahara.

It also reminded the "United Nations, especially the Security Council, that the Saharawi people has got an inalienable right to self-determination and independence, and that the Saharawi people only, are the side that have the power to decide over the political future and status of Western Sahara. The right to self-determination is a fundamental right granted by the UNs Charter and international legality to all peoples, and thus the Saharawi people will exercise it, and will make use of all relevant means to do make this happen", the letter reads.
