The LMC revisits the story of the struggle for independence in Western Sahara, one of only 2 regions in Africa where Spanish is spoken. We speak with Sahra Libre (alias) about the continued fight against Moroccan occupation, which has lasted for over 43 years. Sahra Libre is a Sahrawi refugee and activist living in the US. She conducted this interview in an undisclosed location in Morocco in order to circumvent the media blockade.
Very few Latinos are aware that they have Arab brothers and sisters that also speak Spanish. Dr Stephen Zunes from the University of San Francisco & author of “Western Sahara: War Nationalism & Conflict Irresolution”, discusses the Sahrawi struggle for independence while under occupation by Morocco.
