Western Sahara: Injustice

Black Star Journal reports on the 30 years of injustice in the Western Sahara..”The late King Hassan invoked centuries-old ties of allegiance by Saharan tribes to assert his sovereignty and claim the territory's rich phosphate deposits and offshore fishing grounds even as his regime assiduously worked against international efforts to organize a referendum in Western Sahara about the land's future status.”

  • The UN Charter on Fundamental Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights have been made ineffective because of the British Judiciary and European Court of Human Rights contempt for the Rule of Law. Ethnic minorities in United Kingdom are deprived of every rights. They are denied right to education, right to life with the increasing Deaths in Custody cases, right to dignity and freedom of expression at workplace are denied by dismissal of victims of judicial violence by the Department of Constitutional Affairs, without due process. Is this the act of a democratic and civilised society?
