  WSO| Moroccan Wall of Shame
The Moroccans refer to this barrier as “the berm”, and this is the term employed in a number of UN Security Council and General Assembly documents, reports, and press releases, which occasionally expand the term to “the defensive berm”.
However, the wall is dubbed by the Sahrawis "The Wall of Shame".
The wall was built in six stages, and the area behind the wall was expanded from a small area near Morocco in the north, to most of the western and central part of the country gradually.

 Morocco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Recognition by the United Kingdom in 1904 of France's "sphere of influence" in Morocco provoked a German reaction; the "crisis" of 1905-6 was resolved at the Algeciras Conference (1906), which formalized France's "special position" and entrusted policing of Morocco jointly to France and Spain.
Nationalist political parties, which subsequently arose under the French protectorate, based their arguments for Moroccan independence on such World War II declarations as the Atlantic Charter (a joint U.S.-British statement that set forth, among other things, the right of all people to choose the form of government under which they live).
France's exile of the highly respected Sultan Mohammed V in 1953 and his replacement by the unpopular Mohammed Ben Aarafa, whose reign was perceived as illegitimate, sparked active opposition to the French protectorate.

The Moroccan Wall, dubbed by the Sahrawis The Wall of Shame, is a 2,500 kilometer long system of defensive walls, known as berms: sand walls about three meters in height with bunkers, fences and landmines, running mainly through the Morocco-occupied Western Sahara.
Since, at many places, the barrier is a double barrier with a significant distance between the two halves, many Sahrawis are forced to live in this no-man's-land with constraints on mobility and accessibility.

The Moroccan wall is the "proof of occupation" to Western Sahara, asserts the Saharawi Prime Minister
"The wall, which is more than 2.400 km long, that Morocco built in Western Sahara is the most obvious proof to the fact that the Moroccan presence in Western Sahara is an occupation only maintained by military force", declared Mr.Taleb Omar during a press declaration he gave in Chahid El Hafed.
The President of the Parliament evoked "the failure of the Moroccan attempts aiming to convince UN to adhere its theory regarding the resolution of the saharawi question by granting a wide autonomy to Saharawis within the Moroccan sovereignty and with a rejection of the referendum".

Moroccan children are taught in school that the territory of Western Sahara is justifiably Moroccan and that the Saharawi don't really exist, so it is no surprise if much of the population believes this right royal nationalist rhetoric.
