The betrayal of Spanish politics

Why to we must study Western Sahara history?

Josetxu's insight:

Dear students: 

The Western Sahara (Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic) it was the last of the Spanish colonial territories. Spain had promissed to the saharawi that they would became free. However, in October of 1975 the spanish  dictatorship signed an agreement with Morocco and Mauritania for the division of the territory between the two countries, thus betraying the promises made. 

Since then the Western Sahara was occupied by the Moroccan army, forcing its population to take refuge in the fields assigned by the Algerian government and the Polisario Front to start a war that lasted until 1991. This year the United Nations agreed to send a peacekeeping mission (MINURSO) which remains to this day without getting Morocco yields to the mandate of the UN General Assembly and the verdict of the International Court in The Hague.
