It's Polisario Congress time again, and that means another anointing of President Mohammed Abdelaziz. Maybe next Congress there'll be some competition, but until then, let's get our degrees in the Sahrawi version of Kremlinology (Tifaritology?).
The Polisario National Secretariat opened the Congress with a report on the condition of Western Sahara. Judging from the picture, Abdelaziz himself delivered this enormous speech to a captive audience. The perks of being a 30-year president.
Anyway, the big man did give a shout-out to those of us who weren't born in Western Sahara but started working on it as fast as we could:
On such a great occasion, we would like to express our most sincere thanks and profound gratitude to all our friends and allies around the world including governments, political parties, civil society organizations and members of the international network of solidarity in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia and the United States for their standing by the just casue of our people in the most difficult of times, and for their attachment to their noble positions.
