The annual member meeting of Emmaus Stockholm, a solidarity organisation in Sweden, decided this week to support Western Sahara Resource Watch with a generous amount of 65700 Swedish kroners (approx 7500 Euros). The financial support will be used by WSRW in trying to stop the EU's illegal trade agreements with Morocco covering the occupied territory of Western Sahara.

Most crucially, the EU is from 2013 trying to renew a fisheries agreement offshore Western Sahara.

"By failing to involve the Saharawi people already during the negotiations, the EU's fisheries talks with Morocco already undermines international law and the UN peace efforts. We thank Emmaus Stockholm for the support in the international struggle to raise awareness about the EU's role in prolonging the sufferings of the Saharawi people. Morocco is not in a position to negotiate with the EU for the fish stocks in a territory which is not Moroccan", stated chair of WSRW, Erik Hagen.

Emmaus also supported the WSRW's work in funding the writing of the report Label and Liability on the EU-Morocco free trade agreement that entered into force 1 October 2012.

Morocco occupies the major part of its neighbouring country, Western Sahara. 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.
