The Norwegian Support Committee has a Facebook profile, a Twitter profile and two YouTube channels (one Norwegian and one English). You can join these to get breaking news on the conflict and the activities of the solidarity movement. You can read our documents on Scribd.

If you are on Facebook you can also show your support for The Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) by becoming a ‘supporter’ on its Facebook Page. You can do the same with President Abdelaziz.

You can also follow the international solidarity organisation Western Sahara Resource Watch (WSRW), which we are a member of and that follows the resource theft from the occupied territory. It has its own Facebook group, Twitter account and YouTube channel.

The solidarity movement also has ‘We Support the Saharawi’ groups on Facebook for Algeria, Estonia, Tunisia and Norway. We hope to get more groups for more countries. Feel free to contact us if you want to make a We Support the Saharawi group for your country.
