South Africa Condemns NATO War on Libya

Halt attacks on Libya by Nato plea

Members of the South Africans for Peace in Africa Initiative took to the streets of Pretoria protesting against the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s (Nato) aggression in Libya yesterday

PRETORIA: Members of the South Africans for Peace in Africa Initiative took to the streets of Pretoria protesting against the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s (Nato) aggression in Libya yesterday.

The group marched to the Embassies of America, Britain and France, ‘‘powerful’’ member countries in Nato, calling for the immediate cessation of attacks in Libya.

Spokesman David Maimela said the three powerful countries must let Libyans decide their future.

‘‘Africans can think on our own. We do not want to be told.

‘‘As President Julius Nyerere said  way back in 1968: No nation has the right to make decisions for another nations, no people for another people,’’ Maimela said.

The group also called for the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Nato forces in Libya.

The South Africans for Peace in Africa Initiative is a civil society platform which campaigns for peaceful resolutions of conflicts on the African continent.
