  • Description

    British Member of Parliament and former conservative minister, Mr. Julian Amery launched a fierce attack on what he called "Soviet imperialism" at a rally for Rhodesia, sponsored by the right-wing Monday Club in London on Tuesday (13 April).

    Speaking at Central Hall, Westminster, Mr. Amery discounted racial tension as the cause of trouble in southern Africa at the moment. In most emphatic terms he blamed the Soviet Union for initiating aggression in the area.

    He deplored the possibility of the "civilising work" of European settlers in southern Africa being "drowned in blood" by Soviet imperialism - and also expressed horror at the thought that any British government should "have any had in turning on the tap of the bloodbath".

    Associated with the Monday Club in the organisation of the rally was a new group called S.A.F.O. - Southern Africa Friendship Organisation - which quotes its aims and objectives as: "to supply moral, physical and logistical support to any government or organisation fighting communist aggression in southern Africa".

    S.A.F.O. also maintains that it is "the only organised body willing to assist the southern African peoples in their conflict with invading communist mercenaries".

    SYNOPSIS: At a rally for Rhodesia organised by the right-wing Monday Club in London on Tuesday, British Member of Parliament and former conservative minister Julian Amery launched a fierce attack on the Soviet Union.
