Kampala (Uganda), 7 September 2019 (SPS) - The Ugandan Youth Conference held Friday in Kampala, Uganda, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Sahrawi Republic in Uganda, under the theme "Together for the Liberation of Western Sahara," issued a final statement in which it called upon various African civil society actors to intensify solidarity with the Sahrawi people for the decolonization of Western Sahara.
