Salima Kedi Embarec, 20, pictured in the ruins of an old prison used to hold Moroccan soldiers captured during the war, Smara refugee camp, Algeria...I don't like to live here but it's normal for me. I do family work here every day. I studied in Algeria for three years, I wish I could go to university but my mother is alone so I must be here with her. I am proud of being in Algeria. I lived in Spain for 3 years from 2000 to 2003, it was good. I went for two months with Vacations in Peace and stayed for three years, the family wanted me to stay and they asked my parents. It was in Madrid. Everything is good there, the best things were crisps, the climate, and the roads. It was very cold in winter, I wore a lot of clothes. It was very different to come back but I like it. I miss Spain now but I would rather live in Smara [refugee camp]. The best thing is being with your family. ..I would like to be a film director. I don't know anything about the peace process. My wish is for independence and our people to be united. My aunt and uncles and cousins are in the occupied territory, I have only seen pictures, we talk on the phone. Living there is not good, Moroccans make their lives very difficult. We will not be in the control of the Moroccan king. War is the best way to get independence. When you lose something by force you can only take it back by force. I would fight to get independence. Morocco are dogs they ousted us from our motherland, separated us, killed us.... many bad things.
