MOROCCO’S GREEN MARCH, 40 YEARS LATER… 

On 6 November, the Kingdom of Morocco commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Green March: a long and peaceful march that gathered 350,000 Moroccan men and women, who walked together, unarmed, to re-claim the country’s Saharan provinces from Spanish colonial rule. 

Forty years on, this protracted territorial conflict continues between Morocco and the Algerian-backed Polisario front, despite repeated calls from the UN Security Council for a “just and mutually acceptable political solution of compromise”. 

The British Moroccan Society invites you to watch Hassan El Bouahrrouti’s documentary “Polisario: The Identity of a Front” to gain a historical insight into the root causes of the Saharan conflict.

 

The screening of this film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

 

  •  Hassan El Bouahrrouti: Director of film Polisario: The Identity of a Front”  
  •  Latifa Ait Baala: Producer of film
  •  Ali Bahaijoub: Journalist and Author of “Western Sahara Conflict”
  •  Salma El Kassmi: British-Moroccan Political Researcher, House of Lords
  •  Graham McCulloch: Moderator and Chairman of British Moroccan Society
