Saharawi media advocate to visit

Malainan Lakhal, secretary-general of the Saharawi Journalists and Writers Union, will be speaking on self-determination in Western Sahara at the Pacific Media Centre next week (Monday, July 23, PMC-CIRI, 24 St Paul St, AUT University). He has received a very good response from the media in Australia, reports on his tour can be seen on the union website, and if you go to the home page, it is a good source for hard news on the region.
A donation appeal is being made to help cover the costs of his visit. WILPF has kindly agreed to hold donations on behalf of Lakhal's visit. Cheques can be made payable to WILPF.
