Issue 297 of New Internationalist

Reader-owned global journalism

December 1997

War and peace in Western Sahara (Issue 297)

The last colony in Africa - its people have been denied their right to self-determination. The land is occupied by Morocco, whose king still holds absolute power and suppresses all opposition. New Internationalist travels across the desert wastes to meet the liberation army and the Saharawis who have been living in refugee camps in Algeria for more than two decades.
