Barotse National Youth League Manifesto
WHEREAS Africanism must be promoted i.e. Africans must struggle for development, progress and national liberation so as to occupy their rightful and honourable place among nations of the world;
AND WHEREAS Barotseland Youth must be united, consolidated, trained and disciplined because from their ranks future leaders will be recruited;
AND WHEREAS a resolution was passed by the Barotseland National Council in Mongu, Barotseland on the 26 and 27 of March 2012, to restore full Independence and Sovereignty to Barotseland;
WE therefore assume the responsibility of laying the foundations of the Barotseland National Youth League.
STATEMENT OF POLICY
The Barotseland National League is the symbol and embodiment of Barotseland will to present a united national front against all forms of oppression.
In response to the demands of the times Barotseland National Youth is:
LAYING ITS SERVICES AT THE DISPOSAL OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION MOVEMENT, THE BAROTSELAND NATIONAL YOUTH LEAGUE, IN THE FIRM BELIEF, KNOWLEDGE AND CONVICTION THAT THE CAUSE OF BAROTSELAND MUST AND WILL TRIUMPH
The formation of the Barotseland National League is an answer and assurance to the critics of the national movement that Barotseland Youth will not allow the struggles and sacrifices of their fathers to have been in vain. Our fathers fought so that we, better equipped when our time came, should start and continue from where they stopped.
The formation of this League is an attempt on the part of Youth to impart to Barotseland a truly national character. It is also a protest against the lack of discipline and the absence of a clearly-defined goal in the movement as a whole.
The Barotseland National Youth League must be the brains-trust and power-station of the spirit of Barotseland Nationalism; the spirit of Africa self-determination; the spirit that is so discernible in the thinking of our Youth.
At this power-station the league will be a co-ordinating agency for all youthful forces employed in rousing popular political consciousness and fighting oppression and reaction. It will educate the people politically by concentrating its energies on the Barotseland home front to make all sections of our people Congress minded and nation-conscious.
Circumstances call upon Barotseland National Youth to make the League specialise in championing the cause of Barotseland; and to serve this end best, the League will sponsor a political bloc, within the national movement. This will be the wing of the Youth League entrusted with the duty of organising Youth . . .
We believe in the divine destiny of nations.
The goal of all our struggles is Independence of Barotseland and our motto is "BAROTSELAND MUST BE FREE".
We believe that the national liberation of Africans will be achieved by Africans themselves. We reject foreign Intervention in Africa, and specially that from Communist North Korea, Communist China, Communist Cuba, Iran and Russia.
We may borrow useful ideologies from foreign ideologies, but we reject the wholesale importation of foreign ideologies into Africa such as Communism and Totalitarianism.
We believe that leadership must be the personification and symbol of popular aspirations and ideals.
We believe that practical leadership must be given to capable men, whatever their status in society.
We believe in the scientific approach to all African problems.
We combat moral disintegration among Africans by maintaining and upholding high ethical standards ourselves.
