Press Release MPT (Portugal): On the unsustainable situation of the Saharawi People

The Movement Party of the Earth (MPT), consistent with the values it advocates, reaffirms its solidarity with the Saharawi people and its legitimate representative, the Polisario Front, and its inalienable right to self-determination in accordance with the resolutions of the United Nations, the African Union and the advisory opinion of the Court of The Hague  judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ), and condemns the illegal military occupation of a large part of the territory of Western Sahara by the Kingdom of Morocco, as well as the demographic change with the introduction of hundreds of thousands of settlers .

It is with particular concern that we see the inertia on the part of the international community in relation to this occupation, which has continued since 1975 and which did not end, as might be expected in 1991, with the signing of the cease-fire agreement whose premises have not been respected by Morocco, which consistently  has placed obstacles in the way of a referendum for self-determination, the only reason for the presence of a United Nations Mission in the field  for more than two decades and whose mandate does not include the protection of the Saharawi population.
