This week, we brought the issue of Western Sahara to thousands! Our fabulous Saharawi guest, Jdeiya, addressed three events at Labour Party Conference and the World Transformed including thousands in the Labour conference hall!

Jdeiya spoke to delegates about her experience of growing up in the Saharawi refugee camps, and the brutality of the Moroccan occupation. She told conference:
Like the solidarity shown by Jeremy Corbyn when he visited Western Sahara in 2014, we need your solidarity to protect human rights and to set a date for a referendum in Western Sahara!
Jdeiya also addressed the Reclaiming Internationalism reception alongside International Development Secretary, Dan Carden, and spoke alongside inspiring activists from Palestine, South Sudan, Eritrea and West Papua about struggles from around the world.
She even managed to fit in a quick meeting with Jeremy Corbyn!
We hope this helps to push Western Sahara up the political agenda in the UK and bring the fight for justice to more people.
