Western Sahara: A Tribute to a Hero

Occidental – Sada Assahra al -Gharbiya [ar] has posted a poem entitled “Another Poem from the Occupied Territory: My Hero!”

استتشهد لانه بطل
للانه ما ارادالاستعمار
وكان يحمل فكر وافكار
نعم اغتيل عزيز الدار
واصبح الان في قائمة شهدائنا الابرار
اطفئ نوره لكن بقيت انوار
وعدت بان تكمل المشوار
وتصبر صبر كباار
بان تغسل الذل والعار
وعدت بان تتماسك وان لا تنهار
فقط من اجلك اايها البطل االمغوار
ومن ااجل انصارنا الثوار

He was martyred because he is a hero
Because he didn't want occupation
He carried thought and ideas
He was assassinated, our dear one
And is now on the list of our martyrs
His light has been switched off but there are other lights
You promise to complete the journey
And have patience like the elderly
And to wash the humiliation and shame
You promised to hold yourself together and not fall apart

Just for you our hero
And for our supporters, the revolutionaries.
