Western Sahara Solidarity Group (SWS) works for a peaceful solution to the Western Sahara conflict.
To this goal, the organisation works through lobbying, distributing information, putting pressure on international business interests in the occupied territories and facilitating support to human rights activists in the occupied Western Sahara.
Africa's last colony
Since 1975, three quarters of the Western Sahara territory has been illegally occupied by Morocco. The original population lives divided between those suffering human rights abuses under the Moroccan occupation and those living in exile in Algerian refugee camps. For more than 40 years, the Saharawi await the fulfilment of their legitimate right to self-determination.
