In this week's Programme: A fishy business

Western Sahara, Africa’s last colony is illegally occupied by Morocco. The International Court of justice in the Hague clearly rejected Morocco’s claims to the territory. Approximately 165,000 Sahrawis are languishing in refugee camps in the inhospitable Algerian desert since they fled their homeland in 1975. The Sahrawi population remaining in areas under Moroccan occupation is subjected to grave human rights violations, such as torture, forced disappearances and arbitrary detention. To date, more than 100 UN resolutions have supported the Sahrawis’ right to self determination. In the meantime, the occupier is granting licences to foreign companies to exploit the natural resources in Western Sahara. Tune in to this edition of Tam Tam Express as we dish out a Fishy story……an illegal plundering of the natural resources of a territory under occupation!
