243 organisations from around the world want the UN to condemn Morocco's colonial oil plans.
c c BS

A huge global coalition is calling on the UN Security Council to make sure that no oil drilling takes place in Western Sahara until the Saharawi people have had the chance to exercise their right to self-determination and have freely and fairly decided the political status of their homeland.

The letter below was sent on 15 April 2015 to the President of the UN Security Council, HE Dina Kawar, Ambassador of Jordan to the United Nations, with a request for circulation among the Members of the Council.


We, the undersigned organizations, urge the UN Security Council to immediately condemn Morocco’s current oil development program in Western Sahara, and to call on Morocco to follow through on its commitment under the 1988 settlement plan to allow the organization of a referendum in Western Sahara.

A UN Legal Opinion of January 2002, delivered at the request of the Security Council, concluded that oil exploration or exploitation in the Non-Self Governing Territory of Western Sahara is in violation of international law if not in accordance with the wishes and the interests of the people of the territory.

In blatant disrespect for the UN’s crystal clear Legal Opinion, Morocco has to date awarded seven oil and gas licenses in the territory. The US oil firm Kosmos Energy Ltd in collaboration with Scottish firm Cairn Energy Plc has finished the first ever test-well drilling in the territorial waters of Western Sahara in February this year. Companies such as Total SA, Glencore Plc and others are likely to follow suit.

All involved companies have teamed up with the Moroccan government’s state owned oil company ONHYM outside of Morocco's internationally recognized borders - in Western Sahara. They ignore the numerous protests of the Saharawi people, the sole original people of the territory at the time of Morocco’s invasion in 1975, and of their internationally acknowledged political representatives, the Frente Polisario.

No government in the world recognizes Morocco’s self-proclaimed sovereignty over Western Sahara, and the International Court of Justice has stated that Morocco’s claims to the territory are unfounded. The UN considers Western Sahara to be a Non-Self-Governing Territory; a colony. The Saharawi people have an internationally recognized right to self-determination; the right to determine the future status of their land and its resources. But Morocco maintains an untenable hold over large parts of the territory and subjects the Saharawi people under its control to grave and serious human rights violations, while half the Saharawi people is living as refugees in one of the most inhospitable parts of the Algerian desert.

The oil companies' activities in Western Sahara through a deal with the Moroccan government will give Morocco even less incentive to engage in peace talks and fulfill its duties under international law. It furthermore undermines the Saharawi people’s faith in peaceful negotiations. As such, Morocco’s oil development undercuts the UN’s efforts to negotiate a just and lasting solution to the conflict.

Neither Morocco, nor the oil companies involved in the exploration work in Western Sahara, have the right to override the Saharawi people’s right to self-determination. No oil drilling should take place in the territory until the Saharawis have had the chance to exercise their right to self-determination and have freely and fairly decided the political status of their homeland.
