Mailing asking people to sign a public statement to the President opposing the Reagan administration’s request to Congress to increase U.S. arms sales to Morocco from $30 million to $100 million. The mailing says the arms will most likely be used by Morocco in its military occupation of the Western Sahara, where the majority population is denied the right of self-determination. The mailing says such arms sales would belie U.S. claims to neutrality in the conflict and would involve the United States on the wrong side of an internationally-recognized struggle for independence. Po1isario, the liberation movement of the Western Sahara founded in 1973 to fight for independence from Spanish co1onial rule, has resisted Morocco's military attempt at annexation.
