The natural resources of Western Sahara are a key element in the conflict, allowing Morocco and other countries to benefit from its occupation.
Morocco and the EU steal fish, and phosphates from the Western Sahara.
Moroccan companies grow tomatoes in Western Sahara to export to UK supermarkets.
Morocco sells sand from the Sahara for tourist beaches on The Canary Islands.
The profits from this illegal activity are helping to strengthen the occupation.
To stop this illegal trade the Western Sahara Campaign is taking legal action.

The Western Sahara Campaign has taken the UK government to court for treating products from the Western Sahara as Moroccan. Our lawyers, Leigh Day, were successful and our case was referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union where the ruling went in our favour. We must now ensure that the EU and Morocco uphold that court ruling in their future trade agreements. We may need more legal action to ensure that international law is upheld.
