Establishment of observatory of North African journalists in support of Sahrawi people

Shahid Al Hafed, 12 July 2021 (SPS) – An observatory of North African journalists in support of the Sahrawi people’s struggle was created on Sunday in Shahid Al Hafed (Sahrawi refugee camps), by participants in a symposium on the place of the Sahrawi issue in the Arabic media.

It is an observatory comprising journalists from North African countries, including Algeria, Mauritania, Egypt and Tunisia, which will work in a network to spread the word about the Sahrawi cause through the Arabic-language press published in the countries of the region.

The ambition of the participants in this symposium, organized jointly by the Council Office in charge of Arab Affairs to the Presidency of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) and the Network of Algerian journalists in solidarity with the Saharawi people, is to set up this observatory which will act as an “information watch” on journalistic content relating to the Saharawi question in the North African media.
