The following is a statement obtained by Morocco World News from Gathering of the Youth of Laâroussiyine tribe:
More than thirty years have passed without the Sahara issue being resolved within the United Nations, neither through diplomatic channels, in a way that could preserve the rights and dignity of Sahrawi people.
This has made the Sahara dispute one of the oldest in the history of international relations. Add to this the inability of the Polisario leaders to meet the ambitions of the Saharawi people overwhelmed by disappointment and despair for the future, resulting from the unfair handling of the Sahara issue by the Polisario leaders, their improvisation and autocracy.
Also, would it be necessary to expose the truth, to denounce injustice and abuse, to call for an end of tyranny and to step from a miserable day to a better future. These legitimate aspirations of proud people and worthy youth armed with a strong will inspired the gathering of the youth of Laâroussiyine tribe to restore dignity and hope to the change, giving an end to the injustice.
The youth of Laâroussiyine chose the way of truth, breaking with the authoritarian methods of the Polisario which aim to monopolize the handling on the issue.
Because we believe in the rightness of our cause and we are determined to defend it, we announce hereby to our Sahrawi brothers the following:
1.We remain despaired of the deadlock of the Sahara conflict and we take the Polisario leadership as fully responsible;
2.We reject the disastrous social, economic, political and human rights situation endured by the Saharawi people in Tinduf camps;
3.We strongly and solemnly condemn the undemocratic and authoritarian methods of the Polisario leaders, ignoring the wave of change experienced within Arab peoples;
4.We refuse to extend the marketing of the calvary of the Saharawi people by the leaders of the Polisario;
5.We call the Sahrawis to unite around a new realistic project that meets their expectations and builds a modern democratic system;
6.We call on civil society and human rights defenders at local, regional and international levels, including the United Nations to deliver us from this tyranny, injustice and exploitation as well as achievement of human dignity.
Finally, we call on our brothers of Laâroussiyine tribe participating in the Polisario’s 13th congress, scheduled in Tifariti between 15 and 19 December 2011, to be vigilant and react against the shenanigans of the Polisario.
