Morocco can block ARSO, but not the biggest search engine in the world

The Moroccan government doesn't let its citizens access ARSO, the best website out there for Western Sahara information. But that doesn't mean Moroccans aren't interested in their brutalized colony. Courtesy of my newspaper's blog
comes a link to Google Trends, a prototype Google toy where you can see what places look for something the most.

Morocco came up first in Western Sahara searches, followed by long-time SADR ally South Africa and Ireland. This information shows Moroccans are not blind to the Sahrawi plight, and if we could only contact them and get past the language barrier, we could accomplish great things.
