Should Barotseland Take Part In Zambia's Independence Jubilee Celebration? - Saleya Kwalombota

  The term 'Independence Day' simply refers to the day when a nation was declared independent from its colonialists. 24th October, 1964 was a joyous and historic day for Zambia, when the republic was born through the union of British colony of Northern Rhodesia and a British protectorate of Barotseland through the BA64 international treaty.  With the population of less than five million people, the country burst into celebrations as the colony flag was being lowered and the Zambian national fl...

Let Us Be Wary Of Traitors amongst Barotseland Activists As Zambia Runs Out Of Ideas to Halt Our Independence.

Colonialism, in the traditional sense, ended as European countries started fighting over colonies (the World Wars) and in effect, weakened each other in the process.  Colonized people, the world over, saw their chance to break free as they realized that their masters or colonizers are not as mightier as they claimed. If it was all about being mightier, Britain could not have suctioned independence of Zambia in that case. ZAMBIA SHOULD RESPECT THE LAW OF NATIONS THAN CONCEPT OF "MIGHTIER&...

'Hypocritical' Zambia to officially commemorate ‘Unity’ through Kaunda’s One Party State 1972 Choma Declaration but continue to ‘Criminalize’ the Barotseland Agreement 1964

The Zambian government will this year hold commemorations for the 1972 Choma Declaration which effectively turned Zambia into a one party dictatorship. The Zambia News and Information Service (ZANIS) reports that preparations are under way for the commemoration which will be held at the site where Kenneth Kaunda and Harry Mwanga Nkumbula signed the declaration. The Zambian government says the 1972 Choma declaration was a symbol of peace and unity hence giving it space in the history of the co...

Every Mondays and Fridays at 17:00hrs to 17:15hrs, let’s commit Barotseland in prayer. The Lozis in the Army and police working with our foes, you can say your prayers silently in your hearts. God has already answered our prayer so we need to thank him as much as we can.

 

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO)  has now admitted the nation state of Barotseland as a member.

For any entity to be a member of UNPO, they have to be a Nation or People, possessing the will to be identified as a Nation or People and are bound to a common heritage which can be historical, racial, ethnic, religious or territorial. The prospective participant can also be a section of a People, constituting a minority, living on a portion of its ancestral territory, incorporated into a State other than a State represented by that People.

Last year two other International bodies recognized Barotseland as a sovereign member state. The Federation of Free States of Africa (www.africafederation.net) and the Union of Free States (www.unfs.org)

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent, and democratic membership organisation. Its members are indigenous peoples, minorities, and unrecognised or occupied territories who have joined together to protect and promote their human and cultural rights, to preserve their environments, and to find nonviolent solutions to conflicts which affect them.
 
Although the aspirations of UNPO Members differ greatly, they are all united by one shared condition – they are not adequately represented at major international fora, such as the United Nations. As a consequence, their opportunity to participate on the international stage is significantly limited, as is their ability to access and draw upon the support of the global bodies mandated to defend their rights, protect their environments, and mitigate the effects of conflict.
 
In today’s world where over 90 percent of conflicts are intra-state, UNPO has been established to fill this gap, providing an international forum through which its Members can become effective participants and contributors to the international community. In an increasingly interdependent world it is ever more important that those who continue to be denied their rights or remain excluded be given an opportunity to present their case. UNPO works therefore to address the consequences of marginalisation, working with its Members to promote their democratic causes, to provide information, and to articulate creative and nonviolent strategies for progress, above all however, UNPO works to ensure their voices are heard.
 
Founded in 1991 at the Peace Palace in The Hague, UNPO is unique as an international organisation in that it is built entirely by its Members. Through this strong connection to those suffering the consequences of the exclusion the organisation seeks to address, UNPO has since grown into a prominent and respected international forum.
 
UNPO’s membership has also grown steadily from its original fifteen founders, representing now almost 70 Members worldwide. Although the work of UNPO adapts continually to meet the challenges of its Members and the nature of the international political climate, each Member remains committed to respecting the five principles enshrined in the UNPO Covenant: nonviolence, human rights, democracy and self-determination, environmental protection, and tolerance.
 
UNPO remains committed to offering an increasing number of nations and peoples an entry point into the international community, enabling its Members also to learn from one another; lending their support where there are setbacks and sharing their experiences in success.
