President of Republic felicitates Sahrawi women on Women's Day

Bir-Lahlou , 09 March 2020 (SPS) - President of the Republic, Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, has congratulated the Sahrawi women on the occasion of the International Women's Day on 8 March.

In a message for Sahrawi women on the occasion, the President of the Republic asserted that the Sahrawi women have contributed vigorously and made great sacrifices in the struggle of the Sahrawi people for freedom and independence. They were at the forefront of the massive demonstrations against the Moroccan invasion and occupation of our country, as was the case when they rejected the Spanish colonization and participated in the historic Intifada of Zemla, which the Saharawi people commemorate this year its 50th anniversary. When the armed struggle erupted, the Sahrawi women were the best supporters of the Sahrawi combatants, companions, mothers and sisters to the martyrs, even the Sahrawi women gave hundreds of martyrs to recover their sacred homeland.

President Brahim Ghali expressed his full appreciation and gratitude for the pioneering role of Sahrawi women in the process of building human beings, society and State institutions, noting that the many and varied achievements and gains realized by our heroic people could only be imagined by the presence of women as a decisive factor, not only by its existential contribution to the reproduction and upbringing of the emerging Sahrawi generations, but also by its fieldwork in the conduct of the national affairs, especially in those most vital sectors such as education, health, administration, and others.
