    This historic decision signals an end to two  decades of paralysis in multi -lateral nuclear disarmament efforts. 123 nations voted in favour, 38 against, 15 abstentions. The UK., Israel and US voted against !

     Morocco invaded Western Sahara in 1975, and is still in occupation, oppressing the Saharawi. Morocco has divided the country with a 1.500 km wall, protected by minefields and 120,000 soldiers. More info:

    In 1975 Morocco invaded Western Sahara, and is still in occupation, oppressing the Saharawi. The length of the wall that splits Western Sahara into two is 2500km . This wall is also the longest and most dangerous wall all over the world, dividing Saharaui families, it has more than 9 000 000 antipersonal mines spread all over it (300 meters both sides) -  according to the Pentagon. 120 000 thousand soldiers are vigilating it with tanks, heavy artillery, and the worst of all is that the world never hears about this anachronism. There is another wall of silence we absolutely need to break. More info:
