Ecuador resumes normal life after ear...
Pedernales

15 May 2016

One month after Pedernales 7.8 earthquake, in Ecuador's coast, almost 30,000 victims try to find normality for their lives.
Though the Ecuadorian government had implemented 19 official shelters, with the aid of ACNHUR, Red Cross and friendly countries, some have decided to stay on improvised camps.
These towns, mostly inhabited by humble fishermen, will take years to rebuilt, while they turn their hopes on God. On May 16th, moved by the Catholic tradition, requiem masses will take place all over the coastal cities to remember the 660 deaths and 40 missing people

Sahrawi Dreams: The Western Sahara's ...
Tindouf, Algeria
By Ferran Garcia
24 Feb 2015

Sun, sand and patience abound for natives of the Western Sahara, many of whom have survived the last 38 years in the Algerian hamada thanks to international aid. In 1976, the independence movement, the Polisario Front, proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (RASD) in what is today called the Western Sahara just as Spain, the former colonial power, withdrew from the territory. This land has since been the subject of dispute between Mauritania and Morocco, the country which occupies almost all of it to date.

On 12 January 2007, Nicaragua joined the African Union and the 45 world nations which recognise the sovereignty of RASD. No European country either recognises the RASD as a sovereign entity, or the annexation carried out by Morocco. Meanwhile, 260,000 inhabitants of the Western Sahara are currently living in an effective no-man’s land claimed by Morocco. There, local institutions have no power and are not given any public assistance.

Neighbouring Algeria, a firm defender of Western Saharan independence, provides refuge to 160,000 Sahrawis in the desert surrounding the Algerian province of Tindouf. Isolated from the rest of the world, they depend on what the European NGO lorries take from the port of Oran to the south of the country. Here, a generation raised abroad is beginning to question how long it will be before a referendum is held. Many of these young men do not rule out returning to arms.
