Our friends at the Latino Media Collective take over Latino Rebels Radio this week with several podcasts. For the first show, the LMC revisits the story of the struggle for independence in Western Sahara, one of only two regions in Africa where Spanish is spoken. We speak with Sahra Libre (alias) about the continued fight against Moroccan occupation, which has lasted for over 43 years. Sahra Libre is a Sahrawi refugee and activist living in the United States. She conducted this interview in an undisclosed location in Morocco in order to circumvent the media blockade.
