***WE DEMAND THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM FORMALLY RECOGNISE SOMALILAND***
-Somaliland is a thriving democracy, a success story in hard circumstances. Somaliland declared independence from Somalia in 1991. Yet the United Kingdom will not recognise its former colony’s right to independence (note: Somaliland was a British colony, the rest of Somalia was not). Somalilanders do not deserve to have their democratic project threatened due to lack of recognition by foreign governments.
-We demand that the British Government recognise Somaliland as an independent state.
