More than 180,000 people participated in a spontaneous popular march Tuesday in the southern city of Laayoune to denounce the verbal blunders of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the issue of the Moroccan Sahara.

The March, organized at the initiative of sheikhs and notables of Sahrawi tribes, politicians, trade unions and the civil society, started from Sheikh Mohamed Laghdef center towards the headquarters of MINURSO. 


The participants expressed their attachment to the Moroccan sovereignty over the Sahara and the constants of the Nation, as well as their categorical rejection of the statements of the UN Secretary General on the Moroccan Sahara in an atmosphere reminiscent of the patriotic fervor of the Green March.
