Western Sahara - Independent Maghreb Press Agency - IMPA have established in coincidence with the first spark of the wind of change that invaded the Arab region, after the raging popular revolutions of the Arab Spring. It was as a pulse of the Arab street following the details of the popular movement within a continuous coverage of its events. In this regard, it made interviews with peoples participated in those enormous events. We met the foreign journalists who cited the scenes of Gdeim Izik camp in Western Sahara to world. Immediately and in the same month after the outbreak of the revolution in Tunisia, IMPA has been officially launched under the motto: “the truth is not exclusive to any one”.
