The Human Rights Council’s Independent Expert in the field of cultural rights warns that the Moroccan wall in Western Sahara undermines the transmission of the Saharawi culture.

The wall built by Morocco to divide Western Sahara does not only allow the occupying Power to exploit phosphate and fishing but also endangers the Saharawi culture.

The report of the Human Rights Council’s Special Rapporteur on cultural rights, which WSHRW discloses to the public opinion, denounces that:

Saharawi families who have been divided face difficulties in transmitting cultural traditions and values to their offspring. The Independent Expert encourages the organization of family reunions on a regular and more frequent basis”.
