  • Description

    A representative of the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) addressed the United Nations Security Council on Friday (1 December), when it considered the current situation in Namibia. The Council is examining ways of enabling Namibians, who are now administered by South Africa to find self-determination and independence.

    The speaker was Mr. Peter Mueshihange, SWAPO's Secretary for Foreign Relations. He said that, in contrast to the U.N.'s definition of independence as a decision for all his people to determine their own future, South Africa saw the future as partitioning Namibia into separate ethnic "homelands."
    During his speech Mr. Mueshihange expressed solidarity with all anti-imperialist forces "especially the heroic people of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Palestine, so-called French Somaliland, Spanish Sahara, Comoro Islands and anti-imperialist forces in Latin America as well as our brothers and sisters in North America."
