Sahrawi “Ambassador” To President Obama: Press Morocco On U.N.-mandated Referendum For Self-Determination

Mouloud Said is the unofficial Ambassador of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR, or Western Sahara) to Washington, D.C. Unofficial because the U.S. — unlike almost every African country and many European and South American countries) doesn’t recognize the SADR which has been struggling against Moroccan occupation for decades. After defeating colonizing power Spain and occupiers Mauritania, the Sahrawis through POLISARIO front, its liberation army, previously led an armed struggle against Morocco until a United Nations brokered cease-fire in 1991 which was to be followed by a referendum. SADR is considered to be Africa’s “last colony.” Morocco has blocked the referendum for 25 years now.
