For Moroccan, today is an important day in our history, culture and Identity. We celebrate the 38th anniversary of the Green March.
The Green March was a strategic mass demonstration in November 1975, coordinated by king Hassan II and the Moroccan government, to force Spain to hand over the disputed, autonomous semi-metropolitan Spanish Province of Sahara to Morocco.
When the people heard the amazing speech of the king Hassan II, they did not hesitate to take a part of this historical event. A participation that shows the power of the Moroccans as nation, and their strength as brothers and sisters. 350000 Moroccans advanced several miles into the Western Sahara territory to be witnesses and creators of the Green March.
