    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ 7) MR. NYERERE: "WHEN IT COME TO PRESSURES, WHAT PRESSURE HAVE WE BEEN APPLYING? BECAUSE I THINK FRANKLY WE SHOULDN'T DESPAIR ABOUT THIS. WE SHOULDN'T REALLY SUPPOSE THAT THE ONLY THING THAT REMAINS NOW IS SHOOTING, BECAUSE FRANKLY WE HAVEN'T TRIED ANY OTHER THING YET. WHEN WE'VE GONE TO THE BIG CAPITALS OF THE WORLD AND SAID 'PLEASE PUT ON ECONOMIC SANCTIONS', THEY'VE SAID 'THIS IS WRONG, IT CAN'T WORK', BUT WE HAVEN'T TRIED IT. AND WE ARE SAYING 'PLEASE LET'S TRY IT -- DON'T LEAVE THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE, DON'T LEAVE THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE -- SHOOTING'."



    (SEQ 8) REPORTER: "YOU YOURSELF ARE SEEKING A PEACEFUL WAY TO GET INDEPENDENCE FOR ALL AFRICAN COUNTRIES. BUT DO YOU FEEL THE THIS IS THE APPROACH OF OTHER AFRICAN LEADERS?"



    (SEQ 9) MR. NYERERE: "I'M TELLING YOU, MY FRIEND, OUR BIGGEST CONCERN IS THE KNOWLEDGE THAT OUR REVOLUTION OF THE AFRICAN COUNTRIES -- THIS IS ... A PEACEFUL REVOLUTION HAS TAKEN PLACE -- OUR CONCERN IS THAT OUR REVOLUTION FROM COLONIALISM TO INDEPENDENCE THROUGHOUT AFRICA HAS BEEN A PEACEFUL ONE. AND .. WE WOULD LIKE TO COMPLETE THIS PEACEFULLY. WE HAD THIS PROBLEM, WE HAD ALGERIA, WE HAD THE CONGO, WHICH IS A COMPLETELY SEPARATE CASES, AND FRANKLY, WE WANT THIS REVOLUTION IN AFRICA TO BE A PEACEFUL REVOLUTION. IT'S NOT MERELY JULIUS NYERERE THAT WANTS IT, IT'S REALLY THE AFRICAN LEADERS.... WHO WANTS TO DIE FOR THE SAKE OF DYING?"
