With regard to the information you have published: "Infantino and FIFA will be travelling to Morocco next January", I attach, for your information and documentation, the link to this publication: "The legitimate rights of the Sahrawi people and Morocco's annexationist claims: working notes and references".
I believe that Morocco should not host the 2030 World Cup as long as it blatantly and with impunity violates international law, does not respect human rights, keeps Sahrawi political prisoners in inhuman conditions and does not agree to apply - under the auspices of the United Nations - the necessary mechanisms (referendum on self-determination) to restore the Sahrawi people's legitimate rights and stolen territory.
Those who encourage, allow or authorize the undeserved holding of this sporting event in Morocco will be complicit in the illegal and illegitimate occupation of Western Sahara, condemned by the international community, of the crimes that are perpetrated daily as a result of this occupation, and to prevent a real solution to Morocco's illegal occupation of Western Sahara.
Celebrating this sporting event, under the current conditions of the occupying power of Western Sahara, could bring FIFA into disrepute (by supporting Morocco' s violation of international law) and trigger a global campaign of protest, as was the case for Argentina during the dark years of the dictatorship of the generals, now tried and convicted.
In the hope that you will take this observation seriously and convey it to all the people and organizations you consider appropriate, I extend my best regards.
