  • Description

    At the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday (2 November) the Organisation of African Unity called for the UN to give material assistance to the black nationalists in South Africa, and also to the African nations fighting against apartheid.

    SYNOPSIS: The call was made during the debate on apartheid by spokesman Peter Onu.

    Another delegate, the Algerian representative, Mr. Abdel Latif Rahal, was reportedly referring to the newly independent state of Transkei, formerly a homeland for black South Africans, when he said that it had become obvious that Pretoria's need to protect itself against foreign threats had led to 'putting on life jackets'.

    Proposals were formerly submitted at Tuesday's session calling on the General Assembly to endorse the armed struggle of black South Africans, and for a mandatory ban on military sales to the Republic. They were part of a package of eight separate draft resolutions presented by African states, and were generally expected by delegates to be approved by large majorities before the end of the week.
