The president of the Canarian Association of Victims of Terrorism (ACAVITE), created in 2006, is up against the wave of solidarity with the Polisario in her country. In statements to the press, Lucía Jiménez affirmed that “it is indecent to support the Polisario and to abandon the Spaniards who are victims of its bombs”.
Jiménez also points to “the abandonment of the Sahrawi population in a bankrupt state for 50 years”“. The leaders of the Front “have created frustration in a State that does not exist and whose leaders have lived very well in Spain and in Europe thanks to millionaire international aid”.
Contrary to the condemnations of the majority of the Spanish parties of the new position of the Chief Executive on the question of Western Sahara, Ms. Jiménez thinks that “the solution of autonomy is the most adapted to the current situation”. “Spain had no other way out and on this point they did well and Morocco too. But we can turn the page. The Polisario Front must assume its responsibility”, she adds.
The president of ACAVITE observes that “the Polisario Front has deceived” all the parties “of the far left, of the center and of the PSOE” while “there are nearly 600 cases” of victims of Polisario terrorism in his country. “There is no will on the part of the National Audience or the Spanish State to resolve them. We know that victims were abducted and transferred to Tindouf. The ideologue of all the terrorist attacks was Brahim Ghali, whom Spain allowed to enter illegally,” she lamented.
