DSCN4576Recognize the Republic of Somaliland

On the Occasion of Somaliland’s 23nd Anniversary of Ind ependence. The Youth Activists of Somaliland  wish to express our concerns towards our county’s 23 years international diplomatic isolations and its impact of our people’s basic human rights and fundamental freedoms. Once again we would like to remind the world respective leaders the contributions and opportunities that our countries have to the world.

 

To this end, the Somaliland Youth Activists pro-democratic movements would like to make it known to the International Community that we will no longer tolerate to deal Somaliland as a part of a war torn country of Somalia. Somaliland has its own country identity, national flag, national symbols, and national anthem as well, together with African Union recognized colonial territorial borders.

We would like to highlight to the UN, AU, IGAD, EU and their entire member states that during the Somalia transition process, the Somaliland government provided support as an interested neighbor, not as an internal actor. Somaliland were not a signatory to either the Somalia End of Transition Roadmap nor the subsequent Garowe I and II principles documents that ratified Somalia’s provisional constitution and established the selection processes for its current government.

 

HELP THE REPUBLIC OF SOMALILAND GETTING INTERNATIONAL REORGANIZATION

 

 

Historical background

When Somaliland gained its independence from her Majesty Government of Great Britain on the 26 June, 1960. It has immediately received recognition from 34 Countries, that it in a historical context is an enough official testimony of the existence of the country, which had independent sovereignty but joined Somalia to expand the pan Somali dream.

 

The union between the Somaliland British Protectorate and Italian Somalia was never ratified by their respective Parliaments, and their 31 year-old union remained an informal partnership with no legal binding. Consequently, the initially hopeful union of the two young countries ended in disaster and culminated in a brutal ten-year civil war between Somalia and Somaliland until they separated in 1991.

 

During the civil war, brutal acts of genocide and war crimes were perpetrated against the people of Somaliland. Government airplanes indiscriminately bombed our major cities while tanks and other heavy military artillery pounded civilian dwellings, flattening schools, hospitals, mosques, and 90% of our cities. Tens of thousands of our people were massacred, and over a million driven from their homes sought refuge in refugee camps in neighboring countries.

 

The Petition:

.The Democratic Somaliland Government has independent external security and commerce relations with other states including the neighboring countries including Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Yemen. It has agreements of cooperation with some of the EU and the AU (African Union) countries, with UN agencies and international NGOs which have strong presences in Hargeisa, the Capital. It has business agreements and investment contracts with foreign companies including Coca Cola and numerous Gas and Petroleum Exploration Companies. It has representations in a number of foreign countries to liaise with other governments and organizations.
It is in the best interest of Africa and the world to do everything possible so as to insure security, peace, vigorous economic growth, and continued progress toward democratization of Somaliland, with the goal of ensuring a more stable horn of African region. We urge the United Nation, the African Union and most importantly the IGAD to provide full assistance to Somaliland in its stabilization efforts towards becoming a Member State of.

When a country has not recognized its independence is isolated and marginalized in the world. In the end who suffers is the population not having their basic human rights recognized by the international community

 

An internationally recognized the republic of Somaliland furthers the stability of the horn of African region and the world as well; specifically, the fight against global terrorism, global illegal narcotics smuggling, and global illegal smuggling of women who fall victims to international prostitution rings.

OUR CALLS:

To this end, the Somaliland Youth Activists pro-democratic movements would like to make it known to the International Community that we will no longer tolerate to deal Somaliland as a part of a war torn country of Somalia. Somaliland has its own country identity, national flag, national symbols, and national anthem as well, together with African Union recognized colonial territorial borders.

We would like to highlight to the UN, AU, IGAD, EU and their entire member states that during the Somalia transition process, the Somaliland government provided support as an interested neighbor, not as an internal actor. Somaliland were not a signatory to either the Somalia End of Transition Roadmap nor the subsequent Garowe I and II principles documents that ratified Somalia’s provisional constitution and established the selection processes for its current government.

    I may be an angry Somalilander, or an individual with extremely convincing of our predicament, but I say to hell with the AU, IGAD, EU and the UN. We should build a powerful military and a good economy. The UN, IGAD and AU are all inept organizations, and the EU is opportunistic.

      Ramadan Kareem, Dear Raage, i do really appreciate your great nationalism and your love for your country. That’s the essential marks of man, the real problem though lies with us, when those elected to uplift the country and nation are content with their own lot and singing away from the herd, then expect the enemies to take every opportunity to suppress our nation’s aspirations and assimilate us in the process.

      • Raage says:

        My somalind broter, Mohamed,

        Ramadan Kareem to you and all the Somalinders & Muslims around the world.

        My brother, I wholeheartedly agree with you; I may have uttered my comments in an emotional state of mind , emotions is what defines us a people (Soomaalilaand hanoolaato), but in light of your commects, I am in a quandry to evaluate which of the two villians (AU, IGAD, EU and the UN or the thieves who are the elected officials) is the most element hindering the progress of my beloved Somaliland…….whatever the problem is or whoever the creaters of the problem is, WE will resolve those issues, and we will move our country to a better future.

        • Mohamed says:

          Brother no AU, EU, UN or whoever else ever angers me, because to put it mildly, those bodies are only after their own interests and not ours, but what about us? still using the services of EX afwayne dhabar jabin security service personnel todate. Are we Somalilanders suffering from a memory loss?
