|The struggle of the
Sahrawi people for Self-determination - Western Sahara
former spanish colony of Spanish Sahara is the last african colonized country
still waiting for independence. Since 1973 the Polisario Front is fighting for
independence. 1975 Morocco and Mauritania invaded the country. Most of the
civilian population fled to Algeria, living in refugee camps. The Polisario Front
proclaimed in February 1976 the SADR, the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.
After 18 years of war the United Nations Peace Plan for Western Sahara was
adopted in 1991 by the Security Council. The United Nations mission for the
referendum in Western Sahara, MINURSO (Misión de las Naciones Unidas para
el Referendum del Sahara Occidental), has been monitoring a cease-fire since
the 6th of September 1991 and preparing the self determination referendum.
