Western Sahara: The last colony in Africa.

October 11, 2018
We hope that you are free on Tuesday the 23rd of October as…
At the usual venue of the Waiwhetu Uniting Church , 4 Trafalgar Street, Waiwhetu, Lower Hutt and at the usual time of  7.30pm  we will have the following.
Kamal Fadel, of the Frente Polisario, is the Western Sahara Representative for Australia and New Zealand and he will be speaking to us.  Mr Fadel is in New Zealand, Wellington only,  for five days to discuss his country’s plight with the New Zealand Government.

On left Kamal Fadel.

Of late NZ’s role in Western Sahara has been in the spotlight, particularly through the Stuff website, and it seemed opportune for the representative to visit.
The meeting will start with a short film, Sirocco: Winds of Resistance.  Even with a Canadian focus the film directly parallels NZ’s role in the plunder of Western Sahara’s phosphate resource. . The film’s maker Josh Campbell, in Canada, has let us screen the film. This, we understand, will be its first screening in New Zealand. The trailer for the film is here – Sirocco: Winds of Resistance | Official Trailer
Following the film Mr Fadel will speak and then there will be a Question & Answer session.   Followed by tea and coffee.
We hope you can make it.
