Polisario Front (PF): Western Sahara (Morocco)
The Polisario Front (PF) is a secessionist movement seeking to end the Moroccan presence in Western Sahara. The PF was formed in 1973 by a group of Sahrawi students who survived a 1986 massacre and a few Sahrawi men who served in the Spanish Army.
The Polisario Front enjoys the political backing of Algeria and many of the African Union’s (AU) member nations. The organisation also has observer status at the AU. The Polisario Front desires the complete liberation and independence of the Western Sahara from Moroccan occupation.
