This communication will contribute to clarify factors involved the first and the less known of the Arab revolutions. We will also show the differences between this revolt and other events taking place in neighbour countries some moths later: above all, the capability of the Sahrawi people for combining social and economic demands, the struggle for identitary recognition and classical claims of independence. Finally, these elements will allow us to try to predict the effects that the new scenario emerged from Gdeim Izik will have in the short/medium term in Western Sahara.
