Crisis

Western Sahara: Polisario

Following political unrest in Western Sahara, it's your job to ensure the territory doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Western Sahara 1976. After years of resisting Spanish rule the Polisario and Moroccans have driven Spain out of Western Sahara. With the Madrid Accords, Spain finally agreed to leave the territory. Morocco was given the northern two thirds of the country and the Mauritanians were given the lower third. However, the Polisario wanted the territory to create their own independent state.

As the Polisario it is your duty to fight on behalf of the people of Western Sahara. You must secure the independence of the territory and advocate for the needs of the people living there. The fate of Western Sahara is in your hands.
