Zambia continues to come under fire for suppressing critical media, for blocking three websites; Barotsepost/Radio Barotseland, ZambianWatchdog and Zambia Reports, among other Media Offences

The Committee to Protect Journalists has published in its final report on media freedom violations around the world, in which they condemned the Michael Chilufya Sata led Zambian government as thus; Promises of a freer media environment by the Patriotic Front, which won election in 2011 after a campaign that pledged greater broadcast media freedom and a law promoting access to information, had yet to be fulfilled by late 2013.

OH YE BAROTZISH - TUKONGOTE ANA KALUYA NGOMBE, A POEM

There is no argument. There is no dispute. There is no quarreling. There is no conflict There is no misunderstanding. Only frank talk between Barotseland and Zambia is needed. There is no circumlocution. The Agreement was terminated, rescinded or revoked... Hence, there is nothing in common between Barotseland and Zambia apart from Black skin. The white skin of Germans does not make them French who have also white skin. Naha kiyaluna, Toho yanahakiMulena. Lu limamwaBuloziLu yambanikuyalelalita...

The level of ignorance among Zambians regarding the legality of Barotseland’s self rule is shocking.

Dear Editor, It is surprising that even at a point in time when Barotseland’s independence declaration has drawn attention of the international community and media; it is still not covered by Zambian media houses. No wonder Zambians fail to grasp the basis of our stand and that the term ‘secession’ is a misnomer when applied to Barotseland and Zambia.The aim of explaining the Barotseland issue over and over is a starting point in undoing the ignorance engulfing the Zambian citizenry due to Za...

"It always seems impossible until its done."

Nelson Mandela

 

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.

DEAR EDITOR KINDLY , IS IT NOT POSSIBLE TO DISPLAY THE CERTIFICATE/ OFFICIAL DOCUMENT OF BAROTSELANDS ADMISSION TO UNIPO MEMBERSHIP AS IT IS THE CASE WITH UFS AND FFSA? We are hopeful that it will be displayed soonest since it was just an oversight. KOZO SHANGWE.
