The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation salutes the Polisario Front, the legitimate representative of the Sahrawi people, on the occasion of its 49th anniversary.

The Polisario Front has played a decisive role in the struggle against colonialism and for the recognition of the inalienable right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination and to a free, independent and sovereign homeland according to their will.

With the systematic failure to comply with United Nations General Assembly resolutions aimed at ensuring the free exercise of the right to self-determination by the Sahrawi people, the Kingdom of Morocco has continued its violent repression of Sahrawi communities in illegally occupied territories and the pillage of Western Sahara’s natural resources.

On this occasion, the CPPC reiterates its solidarity with the struggle of the Sahrawi people and the Polisario Front for the materialisation of their legitimate and just aspirations. The CPPC calls for an end to the repression exercised by the Kingdom of Morocco on the Sahrawi people, to the illegal occupation of the territories of Western Sahara, for respect for the Sahrawi people’s right to self-determination, for the release of Sahrawi political prisoners held in Moroccan jails.
