The UN Security Council is reviewing MINURSO, its mission to Western Sahara.

It must do better.

The abject failure of the Security Council to apply the terms of the 1991 Peace Agreement or even to appoint a new and credible special envoy has led to a resumption of war in the Western Sahara. MINURSO has no referendum to organise, no ceasefire to monitor, and its current mandate lacks a human rights function. In the absence of rapid and substantive actions by the Council, MINURSO will be irrelevant to the Saharawi people at a time when repression in the occupied territory is increasing, economic exploitation deepening, and the refugee camps are on a war footing. All this comes amid the Covid crisis.

WSCUK Responds to President Trump's Dangerous Announcement21.12 - 2020

Despite rulings in the CJEU and the English and Welsh Court, supermarkets continue to source tomatoes from Dhakla, Western Sahara and to label them as Produce of Morocco so as to benefit from tax breaks. WSC has raised this with Trading Standards but they are unwilling to pursue the matter. We need more evidence that consumers are concerned.Read more
