Mr. ANTONIO GUTERRES
Secretary-General of the United Nations
New York

Excellency,

You probably know the episode of the Bible where it is a question of a people wandering
in the desert for 40 years. This adventure is a lot of myth and, in fact, it is our adventure.
In the case of the Saharawi people, we are not talking about myths, but about real and
contemporary events. The Saharawis have been waiting for forty years in the "Hamada"
the desert of the desert, exiled far from their homeland. They do not seek the Promised
Land, they simply wish to reclaim the sovereignty of their land.

Sir, you may have visited many refugee camps. In Africa or elsewhere, but you have
discovered that there is a corner of the world, a place where people walk, walk and walk,
because walking is a way to survive and keep hope. There is no such thing as the
Sahrawi refugee camps of Tindouf. Climatic conditions are critical and the means of life
are derisory.

Through this message, We address to you, and we evoke your positive and historical
attitudes for the independence of the Portuguese colonies, without forgetting your
courageous pleadings to support the independence of Timor-Leste.

Mr. Guterres, the Saharawi people, has great hope in you, as Secretary-General of the
United Nations, who is responsible and committed more than 26 years ago to complete
the process of decolonization of this last African colony, By the organization of the
referendum on self-determination, a right enshrined in the spirit and texts of the UN
Charter for Western Sahara, a question of decolonization that has been registered since
1966 on the UN agenda.

Mr Secretary-General, The international community should not continue to "close its


eyes" before Morocco, which occupies by force a neighboring country, oppresses its
people, plundering natural resources, renounces its commitments and frustrates efforts
These unacceptable behaviors seriously jeopardize the coherence, validity and
credibility of the international system of which the United Nations is the incarnation.

Please Mr. Secretary-General, accept our high and deep consideration.
