  • Description

    Prime Minister kwame Nkrumah of Ghana opening in Accra an All-African Trade-Union Congress Nov 5 said the trade-union movement in Africa was indissolubly linked with the struggle for political freedom, independence and unity of the African Continent.

    He said even in a colonial territory it could not divorce itself from the national struggle for political independence because experience had shown in Ghana, Guinea, Morocco and Algeria that it was only under genuine conditions of political freedom that the workers could have the opportunity to assert themselves as human beings and defend their rights for better conditions and a better way of life.

    The Congress of trade-unionists - the first to be held - follows the decision earlier this year of the All-African Peoples' Conference in Accra to form a federation of trade-unions in Africa.
