About Green March
Every Year on November 6, Morocco’s celebrate Green March. It was a strategic mass demonstration in November 1975. The Green March was a well-publicized popular march of enormous proportions. The color green for the march's name was intended as a symbol of Islam. unarmed Moroccans[1] converged on the city of Tarfaya in southern Morocco and waited for a signal from King Hassan II to cross into Western Sahara. The Moroccan Army entered the northeast of the region where it met with sporadic resistance from the Polisario. Morocco marks the anniversary of the Green March, which liberated the Moroccan southern provinces from the yoke of Spanish occupation. On this day, before the 24 years, men and women holding up the Quran known as Islam’s holy book and the national flag, marched through the artificial borders set by the colonial powers that is the Western Sahara area to reclaim it for Morocco from Spain. Late King Hassan II decided to organize the march after the Hague-based International Court of Justice recognized on October 16, 1975. An important symbol of Moroccan nationalism, the day is a national holiday throughout Morocco.
