The Liberation Committee of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) began a there day meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Tuesday (18 August). After the conference ends on Thursday, a special seven-nation body was due to meet to investigate the Liberation Committee's activities.
The II-nation Liberation Committee has come under criticism of the way it was carrying out its duties--to struggle against colonialism in Africa.
An OAU press release states that the Liberation Committee is meeting to plan forthcoming strategy in the fight against white minority regimes in Rhodesia, South Africa and the Portuguese colonies but makes no mention of France's East African colony of the Djibouti territory. Among speakers at the meeting was Mr. Diallo Telli, OAU Secretary-General, who called on the United Nations to give material aid to African Liberation movements.
The committee is also discussing Britain's intended policy of selling arms to South Africa.
Both the Liberation Committee and the seven nation investigating body will submit reports to the OAU Foreign Ministers Conference meeting in Addis Ababa next week.
