While the Darfur coalition is at the Chinese Embassy, activists for the Western Sahara will gather at Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House, to protest Morocco’s refusal to permit a referendum on independence.
Speakers at the noon rally will include Ambassador Frank Ruddy, a former U.S. envoy to Equatorial Guinea and a former U.N. deputy chairman for peacekeeping operations in the Western Sahara. Morocco has occupied the region since 1975.
Bruce Campbell, the rally organizer, said the event will feature refugee children from the ethnic Sahrawi people who are visiting the United States as guests of the Sahrawi Children’s Program of the Christ the Rock Church of Wisconsin.
“We want to be their voice,” Mr. Campbell said.
