    SV NYERERE SPEAKING




    TRANSCRIPT: RAMPHAL: HONOUR, PLEASURE, PRIDE ALL THESE COMMEND US PRIME MINISTER AS ON BEHALF OF THE SELECTION COMMITTEE I INVITE YOU TO PRESENT THE THIRD WORLD PRIZE FOR 1981 TO JULIUS NYERERE...




    GANDHI: I HAVE LONG FOUGHT AGAINST PHRASES AS 'THIRD WORLD'. IT IS UNDENIABLE THAT THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES HAVE A COMMON BOND IN THAT THEY ARE INDUSTRIALLY BACKWARDS AND ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. BUT WHY SHOULD ONE GROUP OF COUNTRIES WHICH BELONG TO THE FIRST WORLD ... WE ARE HERE TO HONOUR ONE WHO RICHLY DESERVES IT. HONOURS ARE NOT NEW TO JULIUS NYERERE, A FEW YEARS AGO IN THIS VERY HALL I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF AWARDING HIM THE AWARD FOR 'INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING'.




    NYERERE: I HAVE CLAIMED THAT THE 3RD WORLD DOES NOT EXIST AND HAS A MEANING THAT CAN BE USED FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE MASSES OF POOR PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. I HAVE SUGGESTED THAT WE NEED TO REJECT THE MOTION THAT THE WORLD GOAL OR OUR GOAL HAS INEVITABLY BEEN SET BY THE TECHNOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL PATTERN OF THE NORTH. IN THESE I HAVE ARGUED THAT ONLY DISASTER THAT CAN BEFALL THE THIRD WORLD IF IT CONTINUALLY TRIES TO CATCH UP WITH NORTH. INSTEAD I HAVE ARGUED THAT THROUGH SELF-RELIANCE AND ORGANISED CO-OPERATION ON A SOUTH-SOUTH BASIS WE CAN, EVEN IN THE EXISTING ADVERSE ECONOMIC CIRCUMSTANCES PROMOTE OUR OWN DEVELOPED NATIONAL OBJECTIVES.
