Kerr-McGee went off notice so the Berm could make the list


  1. Interesting list. I was wondering if it's possible to open a discussion with a delegation of sahraouis currently in DC (http://www.moroccotimes.com/news/article.asp?id=17187).

  2. That's an interesting idea. Still, past experience has made me wary of the MACP.

  3. I was able to attend the roundtable with the sahrawi delegation at Georgetown University in Washington D.C, it was open to public. Although there wasn't a large audience, I found the content quite interesting. The head of the delegation presented some ideas regarding the autonomy plan they will suggest to the King of Morocco. The sahrawis considered the autonomy plan a unique experience both in Morocco and in the Arab word. In Morocco, because that's the first time that the Sahrawi tribes living in Morocco are given the ability to define their identity regarding the Moroccan State; and in the arab world, because that's the first time that a part of the population is given such autonomy.
    A student asked some interesting questions about the Polisario and the sahrawis living in neighbouring countries.
    Well, as I said, the roundtable highlighted other aspects of the Western Sahara issue that aren't well known.
