The statement argues that the MPLA, under the leadership of Agostinho Neto, has always stood for real independence and in favor of the masses in Angola. It states that supporters of neo-colonialism in Angola, including mercenaries from Portugal, South Africa, Israel, West Germany (former Nazi militants), the U.S., and France, are operating through their local lackeys (R. Holden, Joseph Savimbi, et al)) and sub-imperialist states (e.g ., South Africa, Israel, and Zaire). The document discusses Holden Roberto, the FNLA, Chipenda, and UNITA. Slogans on the document include “Victory to the African people of Angola under the vanguard of MPLA,” “Long live the African Revolution!” and “Down with imperialism, colonialism and racism.”
