New Zealand's massive imports of phospahte rock from Western Sahara is in violation of international law, and in support of the illegal Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara.
WSRW has previously urged the New Zealand government to support the UN efforts to solve the conflict, by terminating its trade with the phosphate rock.
The Turkish vessel Yasa Gulten is soon to arrive New Zealand with phosphates from occupied Western Sahara. It will be the second time in less than a year.
The Turkish shipping company Yasa Shipping is doing it again.
For over 40 years, a Moroccan state-owned company has exported phosphate rock from occupied Western Sahara.
The export of phosphate rock from occupied Western Sahara has never been lower than in 2019. This is revealed in the new WSRW report P for Plunder, published today.
