Protesters raised full maps of Morocco including the Sahara, as well as banners to highlight the autonomy proposal.
Yesterday, Sunday, dozens of members of the Moroccan community organized a sit-in in front of Parliament in the German city of Bremen, protesting against the decision of regional parliamentarians to raise the flag of the Polisario Front over the headquarters of the regional parliament.
According to German media, the Bremen parliament announced, on Sunday, that it raised the Polisario flag over its headquarters, to celebrate the anniversary of the Polisario Front’s declaration of the establishment of the “Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.” He wrote on his Twitter account, “As evidence of the Bremen Parliament’s commitment to refugees in Western Sahara, Parliament will raise the flag of the Arab Republic Saharawi democracy today.
And this is not the first time that the German parliament, Bremen, has commented on the Polisario on its building, as it did it last year to celebrate “the 45th anniversary of the founding of the front, something that worried and provoked Moroccan diplomacy and made the Moroccan ambassador in Berlin write to the last foreign minister, who temporarily suspended all forms of communication with The German embassy on that day
This comes a few days before Morocco and Germany issued a joint communiqué on the video conversation that brought together Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Nasser Bourita, and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, Annalena Birbock.
The joint communiqué stated that “the leaders of the two countries, King Mohammed VI and the German President, exchanged messages and expressed their happiness at the return of relations to their normal course and overcoming the state of misunderstanding. They also affirmed their determination to develop relations better than the previous ones.”
