Urgent action: contact the UN‏

EN:

descargaThis week the negotiations on Western Sahara move to the whole UN Security Council. Western Sahara has become one of the most contentious issues at the UN – let’s keep it that way!

It’s also particularly important as 2 oil companies have announced they will begin drilling in Western Sahara this year.  This means human rights monitoring by MINURSO should include monitoring of the Saharawi right to access their natural resources.

Please help us ensure that the whole UN Security Council get this message! This is the crucial week for negotiations so we must make our voices heard.

Please write to the Nigerian government, which holds the Presidency of the Security Council, asking that your letter is circulated to all members plus Spain.  A hard copy letter is best, but if you do not have time please send an email to all members of the Security Council.

Dear Ambassador

MINURSO must monitor human rights

There are well documented violations of human rights including, torture, false imprisonment and sexual violence perpetrated against Saharawi citizens in Moroccan occupied Western Sahara.

Despite this the UN Security Council has so far failed in its duty  – Under Article 73 of the Charter of the United Nations – to protect the citizens of this non self-governing territory.

MINURSO remains one of only a handful of peacekeeping missions without a human rights mandate.

The people of Western Sahara need independent, impartial, comprehensive and sustainedmonitoring of human rights in Western Sahara, as recommended by the UN Secretary General.

Ad hoc measures to assess human rights are ineffective. MINURSO must be empowered to monitor human rights in Moroccan occupied Western Sahara and the refugee camps in Tindouf.

The right of the Saharawi people to their natural resources is also being exploited by Morocco. Given the acceleration of plans for drilling in Western Sahara, MINURSO must also be given the power to report on the rights of the Saharawi to access their natural resources.

I ask you to fulfil your duty to the people of Western Sahara and give MINURSO the power to monitor human rights.

Yours sincerely
