Italian solidarity movement reaffirms support for Sahrawi cause

Tuscany (Italy), 27 May 2023 (SPS) - The Italian solidarity movement has reaffirmed its support for the Sahrawi cause, in a meeting organized to emphasize the continuation of defending the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination and independence.

The meeting, which was hosted by the city of Sicily, Florence, in the Italian province of Tuscany, was held in the presence of mayors, deputy mayors, counselors and members of local parliaments in various cities of Florence, led to the preparation of solidarity activities that the region is expected to witness soon.

In all interventions, the Italian officials stressed that the Tuscany region will remain by the side of the Sahrawis not only by creating and supporting humanitarian projects to alleviate the suffering of the Sahrawi people, but also by politically advocating for the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination, freedom and the completion of sovereignty.

The representative of the Polisario Front in the province of Tuscany, Mr. Abdallah Bouchiba, praised the region of Tuscany, known historically for supporting the struggle of the Sahrawi people, a province that witnessed the signing of the first twinning agreement between a European city and a wilaya of the Sahrawi Republic in the 1980s.
