    Telecommunications in Western Sahara include radio, television, fixed and mobile telephones, and the Internet. Morocco claims the Western Sahara territory and administers Moroccan law through Moroccan institutions in the estimated 85 percent of the territory it controls. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro, an organization that has sought independence for the former Spanish territory since 1973, disputes Morocco’s claim to sovereignty over the territory. Because of this long running dispute, many traditional telecommunication statistics are not reported separately for the Western Sahara. This video is targeted to blind users.

A letter will be handed in to the Moroccan ambassador expressing "grave concern for the disproportionate use force" used last Monday by Moroccan forces to remove a protest camp that had sprung up just outside the Western Saharan city of El Aaioun. At least 11 protesters were reported dead in the camp and as well as hundreds of injured or missing. In the early hours of Monday morning Moroccan security forces moved in to remove 20,000 Saharawi protesters from the makeshift protest camp where they had been living for the past month. Journalists, international observers and even Spanish MP's were banned from entering the camp. There are reports of 11 Saharawi dead, 723 injured and 159 missing as a result of the violence. Additional reports suggest that an unknown number of Saharawi have been detained. Demonstrators, dressed in black will gather from 1pm and at 2pm they will hold a two minute silent vigil for the protesters who died. John Hilary, Director of War on Want said today "We are horrified by the news of violence and human rights violations in Western Sahara this week. We condemn the attack on the protest camp and we call for international inquiry into the unacceptable loss of life". Jeremy Corybn MP said today: "Members of the House are very concerned about these killings. I personally raised the matter during Foreign Secretary's question time on Wednesday and an Early Day Motion condemning the action is gathering support. What was witnessed this week was not a one off act of brutality, but the latest in a catalogue of abuses suffered by the people of Western Sahara for more than three decades as they seek their right to self determination which is enshrined in international law." Ken Ritchie of the Western Sahara Campaign UK said today: "It seems more than coincidental that this action took place on the same day that UN-brokered talks aimed at discussing Western Sahara's long awaited right to self-determination were due to start in New York. The Moroccan occupation has been allowed to continue for 35 years despite over 100 UN resolutions requiring a referendum on self-determination. We call on the United Nations and the entire international community to take immediate action to protect the Saharawi people in occupied Western Sahara and to end that Morocco's continued flagrant breach of international law" The demonstration will take place from -- 1pm - 2pm outside the Moroccan embassy. Saturday, 13th Nov. 49 Queen's Gate Garden London, SW7 5NE Gather outside Lancester Gate tube station. 12.30.

Telecommunications in Western Sahara include radio, television, fixed and mobile telephones, and the Internet. Morocco claims the Western Sahara territory and administers Moroccan law through Moroccan institutions in the estimated 85 percent of the territory it controls. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro, an organization that has sought independence for the former Spanish territory since 1973, disputes Morocco’s claim to sovereignty over the territory. Because of this long running dispute, many traditional telecommunication statistics are not reported separately for the Western Sahara. This video is targeted to blind users.

UN Tells ICP Hasn't Head COP 22 “HostMorocco Banned African Parliamentarian From Attending By Matthew Russell Lee, Follow up to Exclusives UNITED NATIONS, November 7 -- The UN of Ban Ki-moon, which gave in to Morocco's demand to pull out 83 members of its MINURSO mission in Western Sahara and has yet to get most of the returned, is now proposing to give in further, sources have exclusively told Inner City Press. On November 5-6, after three rounds of questions from Inner City Press about its COP23.ma website having a map which portrayed Western Sahara as a part of Morocco, the redesigned website dropped the map. But former star Diego Maradona was transported to Western Sahara, see below. And the now map-less site still contains dubious "information" about Morocco such as a border with Mauritania, see here. And on November 6, Moroccan authorities reported forced the Vice-President of the African Parliament, Suelma Beirouk, to be detained in htne to leave the airport in Marrakech, aboard a plane to Casa Blanca, where they are expected to seek further return to Algiers. The Pan-Afircan Parliament was part of the preparatory committee for COP 21 - now this, from the "host" of COP 22. On November 7 Inner City Press asked Ban Ki-moon's spokesman Stephane Dujarric about the banning of Suelma Beirouk; he said he had no information, adding generally that people should have a right to attend COP 22. Video here. So what will be said about this Banning? We'll have more on this. On September 22, when Inner City Press asked Morocco's foreign minister Salaheddine Mezouar about MINURSO it was told it is already “fully functional." But when Inner City Press asked Ban Ki-moon's deputy spokesman Farhan Haq how many of the 83 expelled staff are back, the answer was only 25. UN transcript below. With Ban headed to Morocco for COP22 -- when Inner City Press asked, his lead spokesman Stephane Dujarric had no substantive comment on the killing of the fish seller Fikri, Vine video here -- Inner City Press asked Ban's lead spokesman Stephane Dujarric about Morocco's COP22.ma website, see below This website, replete with UN / UNFCCC logos, until it was changed over the weekend had a map which portrayed Western Sahara as part of Morocco. See map [was] here. On November 4, Inner City Press for the third time asked Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric, video here, UN transcript here: Inner City Press: I’m going to ask you again about this issue of the, the UNFCCC… the COP22 where the Secretary-General was going and this website. You said it was a very legitimate question. What is the answer by OLA [Office of Legal Affairs] whether UNFCCC logo can be used for a map that portrays Western Sahara…? [inaudible] Spokesman: I haven’t… first of all, the website is, the cop22.ma website is run by the Moroccan presidency of COP [Conference of Parties]. Right? We, obviously, the Moroccans are a partner in organising the COP. UNFCCC has its own website. I haven’t seen any maps on the COP22 website but I’m happy to see them. The UN’s position on Western Sahara remains unchanged regardless of what is maybe on any website. ICP Question: I guess I’m asking because there have been recent comments by Hans Corell, the former head of OLA, saying that the whole thing is… is… that these... both the turbines in Western Sahara and their portrayal are legally problematic, so I’m just… [inaudible] Spokesman: The UN’s position has not changed. But the projects are in violation of international law and UN principles for responsible business according to the former UN Legal Counsel under Kofi Annan, Hans Corell of Sweden, done without properly consulting the people of Western Sahara or ensuring that they are the ones profiting from the wind energy. Corell has added that Morocco’s invasion of Western Sahara, and the transfer of own citizens to the territory could be in violation of Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention. After Inner City Press' noon briefing questions, the redesigned COP22.ma website dropped the map. But here's Maradona - we'll have more on this.
