• Nomadic Tribes of the Sahara | Full Documentary

    In this documentary, we will travel to the heart of Western Sahara, the last remaining unexplored region of the great African desert. We will meet the nomads that inhabit this land, learn about their fascinating customs, their atavistic rites; the birthplace of an ancient empire. They are the ULAD EL MIZNA, the Children of the Cloud. The immense desert which comprises the Western Sahara, almost 250,000 km in size, is one of the least-known, and most hostile regions in the world. In 1976, exile began for the Sahrawi nation, which since then has been crowded into refugee camps in the barren hammada of TINDUF, in extreme living conditions and depending for their survival on international aid. The unequal war between the FRENTE POLISARIO and Morocco in order to achieve freedom for their ...

  • The Greatest Desert | Nomads of the Sahara

    The immense desert which comprises the Western Sahara, almost 250,000 km in size, is one of the least-known, and most hostile regions in the world. Part of the great African granite shield, the terrain is frequently interrupted by abrupt elevations; the remains of ancient volcanic chimneys and cones, which left behind solidified flows of basalt rock, giving these buttes their characteristic black colour. The granite outcrops of the original land formation suffer the continuous bombardment of particles of sand transported by the Sirocco, called IRIFI, which in time has modelled the rocks into strange, fantastic shapes. The relief of this land, essentially a vast plain, is sharply interrupted by clusters of mountains. Erosion, due to the effect of thermoclasia, has caused the surface laye...

  • Life Is Waiting: Referendum and Resistance in Western Sahara (Official Trailer)

    Directed/Produced by Iara Lee Edited by Martin Eller Forty years after its people were promised freedom by departing Spanish rulers, the Western Sahara remains Africa’s last colony. While a UN-brokered ceasefire put an end to armed hostilities in the territory in 1991, the Sahrawi people have continued to live under the Moroccan armed forces' oppressive occupation, and what peace exists in the area is fragile at best. Tens of thousands of Sahrawis have fled to neighboring Algeria, where over 125,000 refugees still live in camps that were intended to be temporary. In spite of these difficulties, a new movement, with youth at its center, is rising to challenge human rights abuses and to demand the long-promised referendum on freedom. Today’s generation of young activists is deploying creati...

  • The Stream - Decades of dispute in Western Sahara

    For more than forty years Western Sahara has been under dispute. A Spanish colony until 1975, its map reflects its complicated story. Resource rich territory in the north and along the western coastline are under Morocco’s control, and they claim it as their own. Across a dividing line known as the berm, land to the east is under the control of the armed Polisario Front which wants an independent and free state. And in neighbouring Algeria’s Tindouf province, some 150,000 Sahrawi refugees are living in camps. This is also the seat of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic government who are calling for a sovereign Western Sahara. This region was entrenched in guerilla war between the sides for two decades until the United Nations brokered a ceasefire in 1991, but the referendum that was ...

    The Sahara ( الصحراء الكبرى‎‎ ) is the largest hot desert in the world, and the world's third largest desert after Antarctica and the Arctic. Its surface area of 9,400,000 square kilometres (3,600,000 sq)—including the Libyan Desert—is comparable to the respective land areas of China or the United States, and considerably larger than Brazil or the continent of Australia. The desert comprises much of the land found within North Africa, excluding the fertile coastal region situated against the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlas Mountains of the Maghreb, and the Nile Valley of Egypt and Sudan. The Sahara stretches from the Red Sea in the east and the Mediterranean in the north, to the Atlantic Ocean in the west, where the landscape gradually transitions to a coastal plain. To the south, it is deli...

    The Western Sahara has become the infamous icon of colonialism in Africa. Once a Spanish colony, it is now annexed and ruled by neighboring Morocco. Today, Sahrawis have been forced to live divided in three spaces: 1) the Sahara occupied by Morocco, 2) the Sahara in freedom - which comprises their original land - 3) and more than 200,000 people who were forced to leave their country and seek refuge in the camps of Tinduf in Algeria, where they live under harsh humanitarian conditions in the hope of returning to their home land. After a cease-fire signed between Morocco and The Polisario Front movement in 1991, the world has forgotten about a population in struggle and the need to find a solution.

In this documentary, we will travel to the heart of Western Sahara, the last remaining unexplored region of the great African desert. We will meet the nomads that inhabit this land, learn about their fascinating customs, their atavistic rites; the birthplace of an ancient empire. They are the ULAD EL MIZNA, the Children of the Cloud. The immense desert which comprises the Western Sahara, almost 250,000 km in size, is one of the least-known, and most hostile regions in the world. In 1976, exile began for the Sahrawi nation, which since then has been crowded into refugee camps in the barren hammada of TINDUF, in extreme living conditions and depending for their survival on international aid. The unequal war between the FRENTE POLISARIO and Morocco in order to achieve freedom for their country has led to poverty, desolation and an unbearable cost in human lives. In exile, the Sahrawi nation has, with the few available resources, managed to create a rudimentary but efficient system of administration. The population, some 170,000 people, has organised itself into WILAYAS and DARÍAS, assemblies of neighbours at which they discuss the problems of the community. Mauritania is a country entirely of desert and with a fascinating history. The terrifying canyons of the AMOJIAR ravine, its vertical walls, and the frequent landslides formed part of the dangers of the road which the ancient caravans had to negotiate in order to reach the mythical cities of the Gold Route. The lost cities of Mauritania. The mosque is the most important building in Chinguetti and perhaps in all of Mauritania. Every year, below its minaret, of dry-stone masonry and reconstructed several times, thousands of the Turab al Bidan faithful gathered to set out on the pilgrimage to Mecca. For this reason, Chinguetti was considered the seventh holy city of Islam. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ TRIBES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-tribes-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

The immense desert which comprises the Western Sahara, almost 250,000 km in size, is one of the least-known, and most hostile regions in the world. Part of the great African granite shield, the terrain is frequently interrupted by abrupt elevations; the remains of ancient volcanic chimneys and cones, which left behind solidified flows of basalt rock, giving these buttes their characteristic black colour. The granite outcrops of the original land formation suffer the continuous bombardment of particles of sand transported by the Sirocco, called IRIFI, which in time has modelled the rocks into strange, fantastic shapes. The relief of this land, essentially a vast plain, is sharply interrupted by clusters of mountains. Erosion, due to the effect of thermoclasia, has caused the surface layer of the mountains to fracture and break apart, making landslides and subsidence a constant threat. The granite massif of LEYUAD, known by the desert nomads as the Mountains of the Devil, has given rise to all kinds of legends and superstitions, creating around it a halo of mystery. The great chains of dunes, called ERGS, are the most characteristic feature of the Saharan landscape. Formed by the erosion, grain by grain, of the rocks, they acquire their characteristic half-moon shape, advancing and constantly transformed by the action of the wind. Interminable plateaux covered in pebbles, called HAMMADAS, are battered day and night by the wind. Scorched by the blazing sun, they are one of the most starkly beautiful landscapes of the desert. The main colonies of plant life are concentrated in the WADIS, the dried-up river courses.. This is in part due to the morning fogs which form in winter, providing the vegetation with much-needed humidity. The bush species that can be found in the WADIS have managed to adapt to the extreme conditions of aridity and evaporation, pushing their roots down deep into the ground until they reach the water table. As the air close to the ground heats up, it gives rise to a strange phenomenon of refraction, causing spectacular mirages to appear on the wide plains. Impossible rivers and lakes rise up in the desert. It has not rained for over a year in the Western Sahara. On the Tiris plains, in the past praised for their pasture, the ground is parched and cracking, and the cattle are dying. The prolonged drought which is afflicting this part of the planet, a consequence of the anti-cyclones which prevent the formation of clouds, is drying out the few wells, vital for the survival of the desert dwellers and their animals. At last, the storms arrive and bring with them the longed-for waters. They are sporadic and fall torrentially, flooding the wadis. In just a few days, pools and wetlands bring renewed life to the dying land.. The desert dons a mantle of green. The time of abundance has arrived!. The nomads that inhabit this desert are the ULAD EL MIZNA, the Children of the Cloud. Today is an important day for Habeyabi and Fatimatu. They are expecting a very special visit. Their guests, who have come from a great distance, are two old friends: Sidibrahim and Caloha. This interview was prepared well in advance. The reason is to settle the final details of the marriage which is to take place between Suqueina, the daughter of the hosts, and Shelej, their friends’ son. With the good prospects promised by the recent rains, it has been decided that this marriage, so long postponed, will now take place. After the lengthy ritual greeting, which may last several minutes, at the entrance to the JAIMA they drink the tea and goat’s milk which is offered to all guests. Both men are CHEIJS, chiefs of family clans of great repute. In the Western Sahara they are called BIDANES. In traditional culture, this concept is associated with a man of Arab race, who has his own herd of camels and servants to look after them. Given their important social position, the marriage they are arranging will be a great event, celebrated in the traditional manner. After drinking the three teas of welcome, the two friends retire to discuss and settle the final details of the marriage, most important of all to agree on the dowry to be given to the bride’s family. It is also a good time to talk about the favourite subject of all nomads: their livestock. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ TRIBES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-tribes-documentaries ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc

Selembouha Dadi can only imagine the homeland she dreams of but has never seen, agonisingly out of reach beyond the Algerian refugee camp where she has spent her whole life.

Directed/Produced by Iara Lee Edited by Martin Eller Forty years after its people were promised freedom by departing Spanish rulers, the Western Sahara remains Africa’s last colony. While a UN-brokered ceasefire put an end to armed hostilities in the territory in 1991, the Sahrawi people have continued to live under the Moroccan armed forces' oppressive occupation, and what peace exists in the area is fragile at best. Tens of thousands of Sahrawis have fled to neighboring Algeria, where over 125,000 refugees still live in camps that were intended to be temporary. In spite of these difficulties, a new movement, with youth at its center, is rising to challenge human rights abuses and to demand the long-promised referendum on freedom. Today’s generation of young activists is deploying creative nonviolent resistance for the cause of self-determination. In doing so, they have persevered against a torrent of conflicting forces. While risking torture and disappearance at the hands of Moroccan authorities, they are also pushing back against those who have lost patience with the international community and are ready to launch another guerrilla war. The new film from director Iara Lee will examine these tensions as it chronicles the everyday violence of life under occupation, giving voice to the aspirations of a desert people for whom colonialism has never ended. ------------------------------------- La vida en espera: Referéndum y resistencia en el Sahara Occidental Cuarenta años después de que los salientes dirigentes españoles prometieran a su pueblo la libertad, el Sahara Occidental sigue siendo la última colonia de África. Aunque un alto del fuego mediado por la ONU puso fin a las hostilidades armadas en el territorio en 1991, el pueblo saharaui ha continuado viviendo bajo la ocupación opresiva de las fuerzas armadas marroquíes; y la paz vigente en la zona es, en el mejor de los casos, frágil. Decenas de miles de saharauis han huido a la vecina Argelia, donde más de 125.000 refugiados siguen viviendo en campamentos que tenían un propósito temporal. A pesar de estas dificultades, un nuevo movimiento, con los jóvenes como eje central, se está levantando para desafiar los abusos de derechos humanos y para exigir el otrora prometido referéndum sobre la libertad. La actual generación de jóvenes activistas está desplegando una resistencia creativa y no violenta en favor de la causa de la autodeterminación. Mediante esta iniciativa, han perseverado en contra de un torrente de fuerzas en conflicto. Además de arriesgarse a la tortura y a la desaparición a manos de las autoridades marroquíes, también están haciendo retroceder a aquellos que han perdido la paciencia con la comunidad internacional y están listos para iniciar otra guerra de guerrillas. La nueva película de la directora Iara Lee examinará estas tensiones, ya que narra la violencia cotidiana de la vida bajo la ocupación, dando voz a las aspiraciones de un pueblo del desierto para los que el colonialismo aún no ha terminado. ------------------------------------------------- LA VIE EN ATTENTE: Référendum et Résistance au Sahara Occidental Quarante ans après que les Sahraouis ont été promis la liberté par les ex-souverains espagnols, le Sahara occidental demeurent la dernière colonie en Afrique. Ce film raconte la violence quotidienne vécue par les Sahraouis qui vivent sous occupation marocaine, et exprime leur lutte pour l'autodétermination à travers la résistance créatrice et la non-violence.

For more than forty years Western Sahara has been under dispute. A Spanish colony until 1975, its map reflects its complicated story. Resource rich territory in the north and along the western coastline are under Morocco’s control, and they claim it as their own. Across a dividing line known as the berm, land to the east is under the control of the armed Polisario Front which wants an independent and free state. And in neighbouring Algeria’s Tindouf province, some 150,000 Sahrawi refugees are living in camps. This is also the seat of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic government who are calling for a sovereign Western Sahara. This region was entrenched in guerilla war between the sides for two decades until the United Nations brokered a ceasefire in 1991, but the referendum that was meant to follow never happened. Earlier this month the Moroccan government, which must agree to the terms of any vote in order for it to take place, rejected independence for Western Sahara as an option. The United Nation’s Secretary General has recently called for “true negotiations” to end the deadlock and his special envoy is currently visiting the region. Claims of human rights abuses and growing extremism are adding to the concerns of the international community over this disputed area. What is the prospect for resolution in one of the world’s longest running conflicts?

The Sahara ( الصحراء الكبرى‎‎ ) is the largest hot desert in the world, and the world's third largest desert after Antarctica and the Arctic. Its surface area of 9,400,000 square kilometres (3,600,000 sq)—including the Libyan Desert—is comparable to the respective land areas of China or the United States, and considerably larger than Brazil or the continent of Australia. The desert comprises much of the land found within North Africa, excluding the fertile coastal region situated against the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlas Mountains of the Maghreb, and the Nile Valley of Egypt and Sudan. The Sahara stretches from the Red Sea in the east and the Mediterranean in the north, to the Atlantic Ocean in the west, where the landscape gradually transitions to a coastal plain. To the south, it is delimited by the Sahel, a belt of semi-arid tropical savanna around the Niger River valley and Sudan Region of Sub-Saharan Africa. The Sahara can be divided into several regions, including the western Sahara, the central Ahaggar Mountains, the Tibesti Mountains, the Aïr Mountains, the Ténéré desert, and the Libyan Desert. Its name is derived from the plural Arabic language word for desert. From Wikipedia...

Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. Occupied by Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territoriessince 1963 after a Moroccan demand. It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory. One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination. In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957) and Mauritania. A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, thePolisario Front, which proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979, and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, two thirds of the territory (including most of the Atlantic coast line) has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria.  Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 82 states, and was extended membership in the African Union. Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League. In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends. As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News In Part 1, we attend the 38th anniversary celebration of the proclamation of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic. The Sahrawis celebrate this anniversary every year despite the facts that Morocco controls a third of their homeland and the parade takes place in Algerian refugee camps run by the Polisario. At the celebration, we meet Sahrawi activist Sidahmed Talmidi, who, in October 2010, helped mobilize the Gdeim Izik protest camp near Laâyoune, the capital of occupied Western Sahara. Chomsky refers to the thousands of Saharwis who gathered there to demonstrate against both their unequal social and economic status and the brutal denial of their human rights as the real beginning of the Arab Spring. Then Ahmed Salem, a war veteran and commander of the Polisario's 2nd Battalion, shows us around the makeshift refugee camps in the arid desert, where more than 100,000 Sahrawis who have escaped the Moroccan occupation have lived for nearly 40 years, relying on humanitarian aid and waiting for the chance to return to their homeland. VICE News travels to Western Sahara's occupied and liberated territories, as well as the Polisario-run refugee camps in Algeria, to find out more about one of the world's least reported conflicts.

Hundreds of thousands of Moroccans settled in Western Sahara after Morocco's occupation and all the well-paid jobs went to them. Unemployment is high and demonstrations are increasingly common, despite the police state's presence."Once you demand any rights...you are immediately arrested", Ahmed, a graduate says. As elsewhere, the Internet has become a key tool for getting information out of the country, with films and news posted to the web, bypassing the Moroccan state's censorship. Many believe Morocco must react quickly if it is too avoid a serious split and potential civil war. The Kingdom has indicated it is ready to change.

The Western Sahara has become the infamous icon of colonialism in Africa. Once a Spanish colony, it is now annexed and ruled by neighboring Morocco. Today, Sahrawis have been forced to live divided in three spaces: 1) the Sahara occupied by Morocco, 2) the Sahara in freedom - which comprises their original land - 3) and more than 200,000 people who were forced to leave their country and seek refuge in the camps of Tinduf in Algeria, where they live under harsh humanitarian conditions in the hope of returning to their home land. After a cease-fire signed between Morocco and The Polisario Front movement in 1991, the world has forgotten about a population in struggle and the need to find a solution.

With a UN ceasefire halting all armed opposition in 1991 the Sahrawi have adopted a non-violent approach to resistance; defying their occupiers through art and music in the hope that a cultural revolution will bring them the freedom they so desire.

Freedom! No alternative but self-determination!" screams a female protester: her arms held defiantly aloft, the flag of Western Sahara draped around her neck. Along with thousands of other Sahrawis, she has taken to the streets of Madrid in what has become an annual protest against the Moroccan occupation of her homeland. Their demands are simple: the return of their homeland to its rightful and native occupants. Whilst the 20th Century saw nations throughout the African continent liberated from colonization, the small northern territory of Western Sahara remained an occupied state. As the Spanish retreated in 1975, they split the country in two: handing the southern half to Mauritiana and the north to Morocco. The Moroccan government proceeded to persecute and oppress the Sahrawi natives, driving them from their land, exploiting their natural resources and brutally repressing any form of resistance, often with the use of chemical weapons. "Morocco are the occupiers, we are the occupied...it is a global shame" laments one protester. Following the UN-brokered ceasefire of 1991, and in the face of Morocco's vastly superior firepower, the people of Western Sahara have turned to art, music and creativity; not only as a way of venting their collective frustration, but also as a way of alerting the world that their struggle for autonomy continues to this day. "Young Sahrawis have decided to look for other ways of expression other than the rifle...art can reach further than a bullet or a missile" explains one activist. As Morrocco continues to occupy and oppress, creative self-expression has become the primary form of resistance for this new generation of Sahrawi. As one activist explains, "Morocco is trying to erase the Sahrawi identity...we are trying to show people what life is like here - we want to spread our message to the world".
