Estimados señores.

El 25 de noviembre de 2010, mandamos la carta abajo a su empresa, preguntando si se está importando fosfatos del Sahara Occidental.

No vemos haber recibido ninguna respuesta a nuestra carta.

Como tal vez han leído, el Gobierno noruego la semana pasada anunció la exclusion de la empresa FMC Corp de su fondo de pensiones por razones de etica, relativos a la importacion de FMC de fosfatos de ese territorio ocupado.

Con el motivo de clarificar el papel de FMC en este comercio, es importante para nosotros saber si la importacion de Tripoliven de verdad ha terminado, como creemos.

Gracias por aclarar las preguntas que mandamos el año pasado lo mas rapido posible.

Entering into business deals with Moroccan companies or authorities in the occupied territories gives an impression of political legitimacy to the occupation. It also gives job opportunities to Moroccan settlers and income to the Moroccan government. Western Sahara Resource Watch demands foreign companies leave Western Sahara until a solution to the conflict is found.

Report: Moroccan green energy used for plunder


At COP22, beware of what you read about Morocco’s renewable energy efforts.
