The idea of ​​the march for the freedom of the Sahrawi people began to take shape at the end of last year 2020, embodying the response of civil society in the wake of the return of the armed conflict, last November in the region of Guerguerat, following the violation of the ceasefire by Morocco.

The starting point of the march will be the city of Cádiz in Andalusia on May 20, and its branches will start from the aforementioned provinces days ahead.

The participants intend to organize various stops and activities during the march towards Andalusia in many villages and large cities, to renew the solidarity of the components of the Spanish civil society with the Western Sahara issue, and to continue building this initiative, which also enjoys the support of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic and the Polisario Front as the sole legitimate representative of the Sahrawi people. .

And with the gathering of the branches of the Solidarity March in Madrid on June 19, a great festival will be held with the participation of all.

Dozens of solidarity associations were able to include in this initiative many political parties and trade unions.

Sahara News Agency quoted the organizers of the march as saying that “it is expected that the latter will receive the attention of the media to break the blackout imposed on the situation of war in the Western Sahara, and on the long-standing conflict that the Moroccan regime exploited in favor of its expansionist ambitions.”
