  • Description

    Plans for aid to oppressed workers in southern Africa were under discussion at the opening of a five-day Labour Symposium in Dar es Salaam on Monday (April 21).

    The Organisation of African Unity had joined forces with the African Trade Union Unity of organise the meeting, bringing together delegates from many black African countries with the object of deciding how the labour movements in their counties could best help similar organisations in southern Africa.

    In the opening address, Tanzanian First Vice-President Aboud Jumbe called for aid in the form of advice and material support to help souther African labour movements to liberate themselves.

    Among the delegates was Rhodesian Nationalist leader Ndebaningi Sithole, released temporarily from detention in Rhodesia. Earlier he had been shown round the vast military camps in Southern Tanzania, formerly used to train Frelimo guerrillas, which Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere has promised to hand over to the African National Council.
