The Sahrawi people celebrates on Saturday the 45th anniversary of the proclamation of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR). In addition to the military victories of by the Sahrawi Army against the Moroccan occupying forces since the resumption of the armed struggle on November 13th, the celebration is marked with big political and diplomatic achievements thanks to a growing international recognition of the Sahrawi people right to self-determination.
Whether in the liberated territories, in the occupied cities of Western Sahara, in the refugee camps or the diaspora, the Sahrawi people are commemorating the launch of the process of building the Sahrawi State, when the Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el-Hamra and Rio de Oro (Polisario Front) decided on February 27, 1976 to proclaim the SADR after the withdrawal of the Spanish occupation, following the signing of the Madrid tripartite agreement on November 14, 1975.
