  • Moroccan OR Western SAHARA??

    Western Sahara is a disputed territory in North Africa, borderd by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000,[5] many of whom live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. A colony of Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand.[7][8][9] It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General A...

Western Sahara is a disputed territory in North Africa, borderd by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000,[5] many of whom live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. A colony of Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand.[7][8][9] It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory.[10] One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination.[8] In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957)[11] and Mauritania.[8] A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, the Polisario Front. It proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979 and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, most of the territory (including the entire Atlantic coast line) has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria.[12] Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 82 states, and was extended membership in the African Union, while Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League.[13][14] In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends.[citation needed] As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara. Western Sahara is the name of a disputed region in northwest Africa. The legal status of the territory and the issue of sovereignty are unresolved; the territory is contested by Morocco and the Polisario Front (Popular Front for the Liberation of the Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro), which in February 1976 formally formed a government-in-exile of what it refers to as the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR). The Polisario views the SADR as incorporating the entire territory of Western Sahara, referring to the region controlled by Morocco as the "Occupied Territories" and the remainder, of which it claims control, as the free zone. Morocco also claims the entire territory, which it refers to as its "Southern Provinces". The Moroccan government refers to the Polisario controlled regions as its "buffer zone", claiming these regions as part of Moroccan territory. On the ground the Moroccan controlled zones are physically protected by a series of defensive works constructed by the Moroccan armed forces and manned by an estimate 160,000 Moroccan troops. It is estimated that several thousand Polisario troops are present in the area behind the Moroccan Wall of defense, which they regularly enter. Troop movements of Polisario are regularly subject to severe condemnations by the UN. The government-in-exile of the self-proclaimed SADR is headquartered in the Sahrawi refugee camps in the vicinity of the town of Tindouf in Algeria, situated close to the Algeria-Western Sahara border. Western Sahara was appropriated by Spain at the Berlin Conference in 1884 along with other provinces that were returned to Morocco (Sidi Ifni and Tarfaya). After the colonial era the Polisario Front has fought guerrilla war against Morocco, and Mauritania for independence of Western Sahara. The war ended in a 1991 UN-brokered cease-fire; a UN-organized referendum on final status has been repeatedly postponed. Wikipedia

The US oil company Kosmos Energy and the Scottish company Cairn Energy will drill for oil offshore Western Sahara. It is clearly in violation of international law, according to the UN - and it destroys the UN peace efforts. Here is what you need to know. In November, the rig ‘Atwood Achiever’ will be anchoring off the coast of Western Sahara, a territory largely under Moroccan occupation. In waters about 2135 meters deep, it will commence the first drilling operation in Western Sahara's history under Moroccan occupation. Drilling will start in December 2014. The rig is chartered by the US oil company Kosmos Energy Ltd which operates on a licence granted by the Moroccan state oil company ONHYM, in partnership with Scottish company Cairn Energy PLC. Exploration of oil offshore occupied Western Sahara presents a significant problem. Such activities are considered to be in violation of international law. In 2002, the UN Legal Office stated that oil exploration or exploitation in Western Sahara to be illegal if undertaken ”in disregard of the wishes and interests of the people of Western Sahara”. The people of Western Sahara, the Saharawi people, and their representatives have unequivocally stated their opposition to Kosmos’ plans in their occupied native land’s waters. The Saharawis are also on record as noting that they will not tangibly benefit from oil production – rather the contrary; they fear that the petroleum may not be available to them in the future, and that the industrial and economic activity to result from oil production will only entrench an illegal and violent occupation. Half the people of Western Sahara today live in refugee camps in the harshest parts of the Algerian desert, surviving on dwindling humanitarian aid and facing malnutrition. They don’t stand to benefit at all. As such, Morocco’s oil programme in Western Sahara presents a key obstacle to the resolution of this long-standing conflict, as it severely undermines the Saharawi people’s confidence in the UN-led peace talks and in the United Nations as the custodian of international law. By engaging in oil production in Western Sahara through a deal with the Moroccan government, Kosmos and Cairn contribute to supporting Morocco’s unfounded claims to sovereignty over the territory and disrespect the wishes of the indigenous Saharawi people. No state in the world recognises the Moroccan self-proclaimed sovereignty over the territory. tn_atwood_achiever.jpgNeither Kosmos, Cairn, nor the owner of the drillship, Atwood Oceanics have ever sought the consent of the people of the territory, the Saharawi people. Instead, the involved companies carried out a duplicitous consultation process whereby they met pro-Moroccan groups to support its plans. Carrying out protests against the planned drilling implies a risk to the safety and freedom of the people involved. In recent years, Saharawi activists have been handed lifetime sentences in a Moroccan military court for protesting against the plunder, and severely beaten by police for peacefully expressing opposition to Kosmos. Numerous companies that have worked for Kosmos Energy on the Western Sahara licence have regretted their involvement, such as the seismic survey companies and the builders of the drillship. The drilling programme in Western Sahara is unique. It will be the first time since 1999 that drilling will take place offshore an occupied part of a Non-Self-Governing Territory will take place. When that happened last time, under Indonesia’s occupation of East Timor, the activities were widely condemned and universally acknowledged as illegal. Fore more information visit www.wsrw.org.

Today, Morocco exists as an independent country, but it still struggles to control its neighbor, Western Sahara. The Saharawi people of Western Sahara long for freedom, but history has proved it difficult in the past, and global and economic ties of the present reveal a grim future for the land. This paper will explore the histories of the two regions separately and together, and then explore the economic ties of the present to show why independence is proving so difficult for Western Sahara.

Legal Opinion on resource exploration and development in non-self-governing territories, including its explicit application to exploration for hydrocarbons offshore the Western Sahara. Kosmos’ activities are focused on exploration and do not involve the production of resources. Our activities have yet to prove conclusively whether sufficient hydrocarbon resources are present to justify development. However, Kosmos is working with the Kingdom of Morocco to ensure that if commercial resources are discovered offshore Western Sahara, they are developed in a manner that complies with international law and reflects best practice for resource management. We are committed to operating ethically and transparently. If our exploration efforts are successful, resource development will have the potential to create tangible social and economic benefits for the people of the territory. Watch Kosmos’ Chairman & CEO, Andy Inglis, and local leaders discuss Kosmos’ Cap Boujdour oil exploration project in Western Sahara.

The top 5 places in the world with no laws. Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1iFDD0w 1)Bir Tawil At number 1, in the top 5 places in the world with no laws is Bir Tawil. Bir Tawil is an area between the Southern Border of Egypt and the Northern Border of Sudan. It has been reported to be the only place on Earth that is habitable but is not claimed by any recognised government. It currently what is known is Latin and as a Terra nullius, a legal term which essentially means “nobody’s land” However in a June 2014, a 38-year-old farmer from Virginia, USA named Jeremiah Heaton laid claim to the land. Jeremiah Heaton promised his daughter that she would be one day. To fulfil his promise to his daughter he travelled to Bir Tawil and claimed the land for himself, he then of course proceeded to go onto Facebook to let the world know of his new claim. Unsurprisingly Jeremiah Heaton’s claim to Bir Tawil has not yet been recognised by any other international government and he is still waiting to receive his invitation to join the United Nations. 2) Ungoverned Afghanistan At number 2, in the top 5 places in the world with no laws is Ungoverned Afghanistan. It is an area located between to the eastern border of Afghanistan and the northwestern border of Pakistan. It is a region is controlled by the Federal government of Pakistan. However The Constitution of Pakistan which governs the area through the same rules which were framed by the British in 1901 meaning that the Jurisdiction of Supreme Court and High Court of Pakistan does not extend to the area. This basically means in that the Pashtun Tribes of Ungoverned Afghanistan, are an autonomous people free to create their own laws, and decide who has broken the law and who has not, with no enforcement by an internationally recognised government. However despite the seemingly desirable freedom that the people of Ungoverned Afghanistan enjoy, it has come with serious consequences leaving the area open to control by tyrants, warlords and bandits, reminiscent of the days of the American frontier and the wild wild west. Therefore it is no surprise that people who live in Ungoverned Afghanistan do desire a more stringent rule of law, with 79 percent of it’s inhabitants saying the area should be governed by the Pakistani military. 3) Western Sahara At number 3, in the top 5 places in the world with no laws is Western Sahara. Western Sahara is bordered by Mauritania, Morocco and Algeria. It is a land that mainly comprises of desert, as far as the eye can see and is occupied by the Sahara people. The land was ruled by Spain, however in 1975 Spain relinquished its control of the land to both Mauritania and Morocco at the same time. This led to a dispute between Mauritania and Morocco over who truly owned the land. A bypass of this is that the land is ungoverned up until this day, with the Sahari people having no form of government or sovereign ruler, they are free to decide their own laws. 4) Antarctica At number 4, in the top 5 places in the world with no laws is Antartica. The Earth's southernmost continent the only continent with no native peoples. Of course this can only be the one and only Antarctica. With freezing temperatures way beyond the realm of human habitation. Antartica has remained with no rule of law. Therefore if your desire freedom from man made laws, and are willing to endure sub zero temperatures then Antarctica may be just the place for you. However you should be aware of the Antarctica Treaty, an agreement between 12 of the world’s most nations about how the land of Antarctica should be preserved. 5) International waters also known as the free seas. At number 5, in the top 5 places in the world with no laws is International Waters. The largest place on earth where there are no laws, that of course is international waters. The principle of international waters arose in the 17th century during a time when countries Spain and Portugal claimed control over all the earth’s oceans, meaning that you could not travel out at sea without their say so. Of course this did not make good business sense for other nations who were looking to trade between ports like the Dutch. The Dutch advocates of ancient Roman Law, that stated that all the oceans of the earth cannot be owned by any one nation. Water beyond that point regarded as the high seas, a place where there is no definitive law. However before you start thinking about switching career to become a pirate, pirates such as the likes in the International Waters, such as the likes seen in Hollywood Blockbuster Captain Phillips. You should be aware that you can be arrested and prosecuted no matter where you are in the sea. Under the principle of Universal jurisdiction. This allows nations to arrest and prosecute a person for alleged piracy, no matter where the alleged piracy was committed.
