The nonviolent fight of the Saharawi People in Western Sahara

Presented by Melbourne Filmoteca and Australian Western Sahara Association

The Sahrawi people of the Western Sahara have been waiting for a UN-promised referendum for 40 years, which would grant them self-determination and end the occupation of the area by Morocco.

The long wait has prompted many Sahrawis to prefer a return to war to resolve the situation, but non-violent activists argue it is more sustainable to work towards building a healthy society based on human rights.

The documentary showcases both sides of the debate and shed a light on the human rights abuses sustained by the Sahrawis in the occupied territories.

Q&A presented by the Australian Western Sahara Association will follow the screening.
