February 18 is a day of struggle for women around the world committed to the struggle for sovereignty and people’s power. It is the World Day of Solidarity with Saharawi Women. The Saharawi people have been resisting the violent occupation of their territory by Morocco for decades.
To commemorate this day, the World March of Women invites you to the International Webinar on the World Day of Solidarity with Saharawi Women. We will listen to our Saharawi sisters and also from South Africa and Cuba.
On that day we will also launch a special video produced by WMW Western Sahara activists and the Capire portal.
