  • Description

    THE AFRICAN LIBERATION COMMITTEE OF NINE IS MEETING IN DAR-ES-SALAAM, CAPITAL OF TANGANYIKA-ZANZIBAR. YESTERDAY'S OPENING SESSION WAS ADDRESSED BY THE COMMITTEE'S CHAIRMAN, MR OSCAR KAMBONA, WHO IS THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF TANGANYIKA-ZANZIBAR. HE SAID NO AMOUNT OF INTIMIDATION FROM LISBON AND NATO POWERS WILL STOP ANTI-PORTUGUESE RESISTANCE IN MOZAMBIQUE.

    HE TOLD THE DELEGATES THAT CO-ORDINATION OF THE STRUGGLE AGAINST PORTUGUESE COLONIALISM WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT TASK BEFORE THEM. THE MOZAMBIQUE FREEDOM FIGHTERS, HE SAID, HAD MADE A "FORCEFUL ASSERTION OF THEIR RIGHTS TO SELF-DETERMINATION." BUT, MR KAMBONA ADDED, THE PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT HAD REACTED WITH "THE PANIC, INHUMANITY AND OPPRESSION CHARACTERISTIC OF COLONIAL REGIMES."
    ONE ABSENTEE FROM THE OPENING SESSION WAS THE DELEGATION FROM THE CONGO (LEOPOLDVILLE) ONE OF THE NINE MEMBER STATES. THE OTHER COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE ALGERIA, GUINEA, NIGERIA, ETHIOPIA, SENEGAL, UGANDA, THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC AND TANGANYIKA-ZANZIBAR.
