Cease Fire Violation
Independent researchers have recently made pointed out some inconsistencies in Moroccan law and the current cease fire lines. After the decolonization of the Spanish Sahara, the land was split 2/3 to Morocco and 1/3 to Mauritania. Of course the Polisario Front fought both, but each recognized each others claim. Years later Mauritania recognized the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic as the sole government over Spanish Sahara, effectively and legally ceding the land known as Tiris al-Gharbiyya to the SADR, which by recognizing Mauritania's claim, Morocco de facto recognized. This therefore renders the cease fire line as illegal since Morocco is occupying land they themselves have recognized as foreign land. We are calling on the international community to condemn this action and to move forward in the Sahrawi referendum for independence!
