MADRID- Marches in support of the Sahrawi people are being held in different regions of Spain during the month of June to denounce the international community's neglect of the conflict in Western Sahara and the Spanish government's complicity with the Moroccan occupation system.
The March for the Sahrawi people's freedom started on 19 May in different places in Spain to arrive Sunday in Santander and finally converge on Madrid on 19 June.
Santander's mayor Gema Igual received the participants on Sundat and reiterated the town council's support to this solidarity demonstration. "You can rely on the support of our municipal council through all these initiatives which make the issue of Western Sahara visible and to meet the most immediate needs of its citizens," said Gema Igual.
The Regionalist, Popular, Socialist and Citizen parliamentary groups signed a declaration of support to the March for the Sahrawi people's freedom.
It is also expected that the march heads for other municipalities such as Santona, Güemes, Somo, Bezana, Torrelavega, Los Corrales, Barcena de Pie de Concha, Reinosa and Aguilar de Campoo.
