Gallipoli (Italy), July 26, 2015 (SPS) - A delegation of Sahrawi Students Union (UESARIO) took part Saturday in the works of the second edition of the Mediterranean students Forum, which will continue until July 30, in the Italian town of Gallipoli under the theme "let’s give chance to peace," at the invitation of Italian Students Federation.
The Sahrawi delegation, composed of International Secretary Khalihena Mohamed and Iza Ibrahimsalem in charge of culture and sports, is attending the forum alongside about 400 participants from Italy in addition to delegations representing the Mediterranean countries.

 In speech on the occasion, the Saharawi delegation reminded the Mediterranean students and their governments that the Saharawi people has waited too long to be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination and independence, and that pressure must be put on the Moroccan occupation in order to comply with the international legitimacy and resolutions of the United Nations and permit the Sahrawi people to decide their own future in free and democratic way.

The Forum will be marked by organizing workshops on peace and democracy, and a special workshop on Western Sahara is scheduled activated by Sahrawi Students Union delegation to introduce the Sahrawi question to the participants, as well as screening of film "La Güera - my forgotten land" by an Italian director.
