Swaziland Solidarity Network statement
THE TIME FOR INTERNATIONAL ACTION ON SWAZILAND IS NOW
The Swaziland Solidity Network welcomes the very encouraging statement released by the African National Congress [ANC] on the political crisis in Swaziland.
The statement acknowledges the fact that violence was completely one sided, with a fully armed police service brutally suppressing a peaceful protest.
However, the ANC, as a ruling party needs to take a stand and put pressure on its governing structures to force the government of Swaziland to unban political parties and initiate genuine dialogue.
The situation in Swaziland has the potential, in the next few days, to escalate into more violence and therefore the time for action is now.
