Emboirik Ahmed – Representative of Polisario Front in Brazil
globo.com.- In an article on the situation in the Saharawi Republic, the Moroccan ambassador to Brazil, Mr. Nabil Adghoghi, sets out arguments that create confusion and can lead readers to serious errors of appreciation. He denies that the Saharawi issue is, in essence, an unfinished decolonization process, based on United Nations Resolution 1514, of 1960, which determines the granting of independence to colonized countries and peoples.
Since France and Spain granted independence to Morocco in 1956, that country has remained an iron wall against the right of the countries of the region to self-determination, due to the policy of “Greater Morocco”, which converted the Moroccan monarchy into a dangerous instability factor in northwest Africa.
Algeria was the victim of an unwarranted invasion of Morocco in 1962, shortly after its independence. The so-called “sand war” had hundreds of deaths on both sides. Morocco was supported by the childish argument that a third of Algerian territory belonged to it. Mauritania achieved independence in 1960, but was not recognized by Morocco until 1969, under the pretext that the entire territory of that immense country was historically part of the Alawite kingdom. The whole of northern Mali was also a victim of Moroccan expansionism.

Brasilia, August 9, 2019 (SPS) -. The Representative of the Polisario Front in Brazil, Emboirik Ahmed, was received at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil (Itamaraty), on Thursday, August 8, by the counselor Bernardo Henrique Penha Brasil, head of the North and East Africa division in said Ministry, according to a press release from the Representation of the POLISARIO in Brasil.
In the course of this interview both diplomats had the opportunity to deal extensively with the most important issues of common interest.
The political situation in the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic and the most prominent regional events were widely treated.
The Saharawi representative, transferred to the counselor Penha Brasil the legitimate concern of the Saharawi side in the face of the difficulties inherent in the resignation of the personal representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations Mr. Horst Kohler because of the lack of cooperation and obstacles that the Moroccan side has erected before his work, which made his continuity impossible.
PUSL.- The Brazilian Center for Solidarity with Peoples and Fight for Peace (CEBRAPAZ) joins the various entities in solidarity with the Saharawi people in the most vehement condemnation of the brutal episodes of repression of the demonstrations in El Aaiun, capital of the Western Sahara occupied by Morocco on July 20 . In the episode, the Moroccan police ran over and killed the 24-year-old Sabah Othman Ahmeida (Injourni), a young woman who was delayed in giving her medical attention. Sabah died later in the hospital.
Several reports and shocking images have been disseminated by the courageous Saharawis who recorded the event, showing the brutality of Moroccan repression, the use of lethal ammunition, the beating of the demonstrators and the trampling, like the one that victimized the young Sabah. They are, however, recurring tactics, which demonstrates the seriousness of the situation of the Saharawi people under Moroccan occupation and colonization of their territory.
