​#REFERENDUMNOW

Join our social media campaign.

For three days, 68 people tried to enter Western Sahara in order to visit Saharawi activists that work for a peaceful solution to the occupation. All activists were deported or stopped by Moroccan police except for one. The Saharawi people were promised a referendum in 1991 that would determine their independence from Morocco, but the referendum has never been held.

Now part two of our campaign starts, and you can join us!

The goal of the campaign is to show our support for the Saharawi people and their legitimate demand for a referendum.
