‘THE ACACIAS OF THE EXODUS’, BY CONCHI MOYA A BOOK ON THE MEMORY AND THE HOPE OF THE SAHARAUIS

June 14, 2019 porunsaharalibre
Conchi Moya writes stories about real, famous and anonymous characters

“I want the Saharawi to be known and to denounce the injustice committed to a worthy and courageous people”, he assures

* Source:  RTVE. Por JESÚS JIMÉNEZ (@vinetabocadillo) 13.06.2019

The Saharawi people have been asking for self-determination for almost half a century, to be allowed to live in peace on their land. But their hopes of achieving it seem increasingly distant for the Moroccan occupation and international indifference. Now the writer Conchi Moya (Madrid, 1971) gives voice to famous and anonymous people in a series of stories she has written on the subject: “The acacias of the exodus/ Acacias del Exodo” (Sílex ediciones), that allow us to better understand the dreams and hopes of the Saharawi.

“All the stories have in common that they revolve around the Saharawi,” says Conchi. I have chosen time as a way to structure them. So there are three parts: yesterday, where I collect stories from the time when Spain was still in the territory and from the moment of Moroccan abandonment and subsequent invasion; the today, with stories inspired by the current period of impasse, a situation of neither peace nor very dangerous war for the Saharawi, and a third part located in the morning, where I reflect the longing for what I hope will soon happen in the Sahara to through a story related to the Saharawi musicians of all times”.
