Corcas representatives participate as petitioners with other representatives of civil society and association actors from all regions of the world. They started speeches since Tuesday before the Fourth Committee and reiterated their support for the national cause.
In their remarks , corcas members denounced the situation of human rights prevailing in the Polisario camps in Tindouf, Algeria , where people are deprived of their legitimate right to health as evidenced by the high rate of mortality.
Corcas petitioners believe that the Sahrawi populations are subject to violations of human rights in refugee camps. The absence of any prospect of a better future, precarious housing conditions and other factors lead these people to despair.
They called on the international community to defend the camps population, require actual presence of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR ) and guarantee freedom of movement and expression of the people.
Moreover, Corcas petitioners said that Sahrawi citizens freely express their democratic choice in every election. They added that many reforms, especially in the economic and political levels, have been launched by the central government.
They also reaffirmed that the initiative of autonomy proposed by Morocco to which Sahrawis have participated themselves through consultations at the corcas , is a serious basis for the final political solution to this conflict.
The same support was expressed by other petitioners . Many proponents of autonomy proposed by Morocco stressed that the Kingdom of Morocco has been able to look to the future by adopting a new constitution and an ambitious program of reforms that would, among other things, guarantee political and economic rights to Sahrawi people .
