  • Description

    Black Nationalist leader, Joshua Nkomo, has called for "guns not resolutions" for a world conference against apartheid, racism and colonialism in southern Africa. The conference began in Lisbon, Portugal, on Thursday (16 June) and it's being attended by representatives of more than 40 countries.

    The meeting ends on Sunday (19 June) with final speeches and a conference declaration. Meanwhile, committee meetings discussed ways of combatting apartheid and future liaison among the delegations.

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting was held in the Gulbenkian Foundation building amid tight security. The clear message during the opening session was that the black nationalist leaders intend to stop up their guerrilla struggle in southern Africa.

    Mr. Nkomo arrived with Mr. Robert Mugabe, his co-leader of the Rhodesian Patriotic Front. Both talked to the conference, which had been organised by the Helsinki-based World peace Council.

    The hundreds of delegates heard Mr. Nkomo promise that the flag of the Zimbabwe Patriotic Front will be flying in Salisbury in a few months. The conference began on the first anniversary of the riots in the black South African township of Soweto and Mr. Nkomo referred to that in his speech.
