Lisbon (Portugal), February 23, 2024 (SPS) - A  delegation from the General Union of Workers of Saguia El Hamra and Rio de Oro (UGTSARIO), participated in the 15th Congress of the Portuguese Trade Union CGTP-IN.

The congress, which began on Thursday with the opening of an international conference, is held under the slogan "Unity of Workers in the Struggle for Rights, Peace and Solidarity" and will continue from the 22nd to the 24th of this month.

In his speech, Mr. Mami Aabidi, member of the executive office of the UGTSARIO, responsible for international relations and cooperation, referred to the dangerous situation of Sahrawi workers in the occupied part of Western Sahara.

He also specifically addressed the serious violations of human rights and property suffered by the Sahrawi citizens these days, with the aim of eliminating the Sahrawi people and making them a minority in their homeland through a large-scale settlement project, as well as a severe demographic change imposed on the Sahrawi people.

The congress is attended by more than 120 international delegates from 90 world trade union organizations.
