42 years have passed since the Spanish forces moved to Amaya from the Sahara and the Moroccan green march occupied those lands. From that moment the Saharawi automatically became what they are today: refugees.
Nowadays in the fields of Tindouf (Algeria), about 180,000 people live there. A great deal of this population are children (birth rates are growing every year) and young people, many of them belonging to small groups of activists for the Sahrawi cause. The rest of the people simply "survive".
Despite the pessimism atmosphere, all the inhabitants of the camps don’t lose the hope and they share a unique desire: to return to their land and at the same time they don’t want to be refugees in another country.
In the wilayas of Bojador, Rabuni, Dakhla, Ausserd or Smara there is a tense calm, one lives between conformism due to a situation that lasts over time and the need to resolve this conflict as soon as possible.
