Happy 35th Birthday, Polisario

Polisario soldiers marshal near Tifariti another time

It was yesterday! As you'd expect, there was a big Tifariti party. Less fun than past Polisario anniversaries, perhaps, given recent Polisario bad news, but they're hanging in.

Update: The BBC has some great pictures. Via Justin Knapp, naturally.

  1. More than 6000 soldiers of the Sahrawi liberation army people (SLAP), an armed wing of the Polisario front marched in an ordered military parade in the presence of a vast number of personalities.

    Mistranslation it may be, but what an awesome acronym that would be for an armed wing. CORCAS can now start its own militant branch called C.R.A.C.K, and Khat al-Shahid are strongly advised to make up something to go with K.R.A.S.H.

  2. That would rule! KRASH is my favorite, besides Mauritania's paramilitary MAUL.

  3. I don't know if I'd call it a happy anniversary because they're living all time into war, so I don't know exactly what's the kind of celebration they have, so I hope they getting a goos Polisario birthday.m10m
