A change is going to come...

Hello Western Sahara aficionados! Three things before I go to bed:
  1. A certain Maghreb Center director has convinced me to wipe his name of the blog in relation to the Together Foundation. I'm all for unscrupulous blogging, but he's made a good point both for saving his name and the MC's. Therefore, I'll be revising my remarks about the Maghreb Center because they strike me as a decent group--they said Mouloud Said, SADR's ambassador the US, could give a lecture sponsored by them. If they cross Western Sahara in the future, all bets are off, but for now I'll be revising my posts and deleting posts mentioning his name, only to repost them edited. I'm sorry for that most of all because I hate any sort of editing of other people's opinions on blogs, but I did agonize for a while about this.
  2. There may be something even more delicious coming about Philippe (in case you haven't realized yet, I call him Philippe because I can't remember how to spell his last name).
  3. SADR seems to have a good plan to counteract these claims, which still may be true. We'll see!

    Violeta and Dan are not real journalists. They've never produced any substantial work or held any real professional job. They are amateur freelancers. Now it seems they are more interested in lobbying for Morocco than doing any true journalistic work. How could two young jobless Australians travel the world and lobby against Polisario without backing their allegations with any facts? Certainly big money is involved! It's a shame on these two young people who have sold their sould for few dollars.

  2. I think their money comes from their film producer backer. I can't remember his name, but it's an earlier post I wrote. He's done a bunch of documentaries.

    of course anyone who tells the truth about what is happening in the camps has sold his/her soul for a couple of dollars. that's pathetic! wake up people! you are supporting a bunch of mercenaries and slave owners, two 'jobs' contrary to any kind of ethics and which any respectable person despises.
