Remembering the Western Sahara

Only very occasionally does the media cover anything about the Western Sahara, the last unresolved colonial issue in Africa. I wrote about the situation in a very early entry in my long-running series called “Forgotten World” but the issue remains disputed since Morocco still lays claim to the mineral-rich territory and refuses to hold the referendum called for by the United Nations.
This week, a story reminded us that human rights activists are still fighting for the people of the Western Sahara to have their voice and their state recognised.
