Morocco had earlier expelled some 73 civilian expatriates of the UN mission in the contested zone and closed a military liaison office in Dakhla.

    40 years have passed since Morocco occupied the territory of Western Sahara, and 23 years since the war ended. The young generation of today has never seen the war, but never experienced a free homeland either. They have ideas and dreams. they have traveled abroad to get an education, and return hoping to be resources for their community. In the camps, however, there are no jobs waiting and they fill their days with different activities irrelevant to their education. In this movie we tell the story of some of the young people living in the camps, waiting for a political solution of the conflict. The film is made by Kristoffer Klunk (AUF) with financial support from LNU- North/South Information (Informasjonsstøtten Nord/Sør).

    On October 9, 2010 residents of Laayoune, Morocco began setting up a protest site in the desert east of the city. The protests were for additional housing and job opportunities to accommodate the growing population. Pro-Polisario provocateurs soon infiltrated the demonstration site to "hijack" the protest. The protest had nothing to do with Polisario demands for independence. Once the provocateurs began intimidate and threaten the peaceful protesters, Moroccan authorities decided to dismantle the protest site before the circumstances deteriorated further. In the early morning of November 8, 2010, Moroccan police authorities, carrying only non-lethal weapons, sought to peacefully dismantle the protest site.

But for some reason the government doesn't give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire illegal immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas. We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals. Read mor...

Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. Occupied by Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territoriessince 1963 after a Moroccan demand. It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory. One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination. In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957) and Mauritania. A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, thePolisario Front, which proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979, and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, two thirds of the territory (including most of the Atlantic coast line) has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria.  Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 82 states, and was extended membership in the African Union. Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League. In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends. As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.

In Western Sahara, 15-0 Vote But Questions of Rights, AU, Morocco PR Answers Inner City Press By Matthew Russell Lee http://www.innercitypress.com/wsahara10unfile042815.html UNITED NATIONS, April 28 -- The UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara, MINURSO, which has yet to hold any referendum, was unanimously "renewed" for a year on April 28 by the UN Security Council. In explanations of vote, Venezuela said human rights monitoring should have been included, and the African Union should have been allowed to address the Council. Angola, citing Chad and Nigeria as well, echoed this. Afterward Inner City Press asked Moroccan Permanent Representative Omar Hilale a series of questions: about what Venezuela said, about the African Union, injured protesters, and why Frente Polisario couldn't speak at the same microphone. Hilale asked if Venezuela was the right country to speak of human rights. He called the African Union "toxic" on this issue, having made up it mind it should not address the Council. Inner City Press asked how this is different, say, from the European Union addressing the Council about Kosovo. (Hilale said every situation is different: the old "sui generis"). Inner City Press asked why Polisario couldn't speak at the UNSC stakeout where, for example, private citizen Hilary Clinton recently did. Hilale said Hilary Clinton is with a member state. But so are a lot of people. Hilale went after Independent Diplomat, saying they shouldn't be allow inside the UN. Inner City Press noted that for example France, the UK and US like ID's work with the Syrian opposition. Hilale insisted, let them do it from outside the UN. When Inner City Press turned around, neither the Polisario representative nor Independent Diplomat were in the "Turkish Lounge" area next to the Security Council stakeout -- from which the press, too, was banned, to which the Free UN Coalition for Access has objected. We'll have more on all this. On April 22, Inner City Press asked the UN Spokesman Inner City Press: on Western Sahara, I think it was a week ago, I asked… it was a kind of confirm or deny these reports of a clash between Moroccan security and protesters in Laayoune, you said you'd ask MINURSO [United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara]. Given that a week has gone by and today is the day of the consultations, did you ask them and they say it didn't happen…? Spokesman: We owe you an answer. On April 23, at the beginning of the UN noon briefing (UN transcript here), the UN Spokesman said: Mr. Lee, you had asked about Western Sahara: MINURSO [United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara] has received reports of violence during a protest in Laayoune last week that resulted in protesters being injured. The Mission has been in touch with the relevant authorities and will continue to follow up. Follow up? Why did this take a week? On April 22 before the consultations began, a group of Moroccan diplomats greeted Council Ambassadors as they went in. They are, it is acknowledged, doing their job. Polisario was nowhere to be seen. At the stakeout already there was talk that while Polisario should be able to speak at the UNTV microphone -- Hilary Clinton did -- there would be a block. On April 21 when Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson met with Kim Bolduc, she was listed not as head of MINURSO but of MONUSCO in the Congo. Photo here. Inner City Press asked and was told it was a mistake. On (the lack of) human rights monitoring, on April 15 Inner City Press asked UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric: Inner City Press: there are reports and I wanted to know whether you or MINURSO [United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara] know if they are true of a, quote, Moroccan crackdown on demonstrations in [inaudible] directed at the idea of there being a human rights monitoring mechanism so it… Spokesman Dujarric: We will ask our colleagues in MINURSO. But nine hours later, no answer, no information. No monitoring. Meanwhile, Inner City Press has become aware that Morocco wrote to the Security Council; Inner City Press has uploaded the letter here. On April 10 Inner City Press obtained from multiple sources the advance copy of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's report on the MINURSO mission. We published it in full here and embedded below (unlike others who try to remove things from the Internet, like here). On April 13, Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the report "speaks for itself;" Inner City Press asked how that applies to Paragraph 62 merely reciting Morocco's and the Frente Polisario's positions for and against oil drilling at this time. Video here. Dujraric said he had "nothing to add;" he also said that enovy Christopher Ross will help provide more details. On the record?

Saharawi people are not benefeting from their natural resorces since there are foreign companies are helping and supporting the Moroccan occupation to plunder them! "The Saharawi fish is directly going to the Moroccan generals and the phosphate is directly going to the King of Morocco" this what all Saharawis are saying! Foreign companies are signing illegal treaties with Morocco to take the Western Sahara resources. This is really horrible, since it is increasing the Moroccan settlement, giving jobs to Moroccans and neglecting Saharawis. In fishing companies NO Saharawi is employed! In phosphate Company more than 99 percent are Moroccans! Saharawi employees at the phosphate company are in low jobs and not getting their rights they are having sit-in in front of the company every Thursday and they are often beaten up by the police.

Irish/UK oil company San Leon Energy is drilling in occupied Western Sahara. The people of the territory lives as refugees following the Moroccan invasion of their homeland. UN has stated that any further oil exploration in Western Sahara is illegal if the people of Western Sahara don't wish it welcome. Evidently, they don't.

On October 9, 2010 residents of Laayoune, Morocco began setting up a protest site in the desert east of the city. The protests were for additional housing and job opportunities to accommodate the growing population. Pro-Polisario provocateurs soon infiltrated the demonstration site to "hijack" the protest. The protest had nothing to do with Polisario demands for independence. Once the provocateurs began intimidate and threaten the peaceful protesters, Moroccan authorities decided to dismantle the protest site before the circumstances deteriorated further. In the early morning of November 8, 2010, Moroccan police authorities, carrying only non-lethal weapons, sought to peacefully dismantle the protest site. This video contains images of the police intervention from cameras carried by Moroccan authorities and a confiscated camera phone. The images are extremely graphic and gruesome.

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Milking cows is a dirty, monotonous job, and as we found out in our latest episode of Immigrant America, it's not a job many unemployed Americans are willing to do. But for some reason the government doesn't give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire illegal immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas. We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals.
