Speech by Agostinho Neto, President of MPLA, delivered June 6, 1968, over "The Voice of Angola in Combat" on the External Service of Radio Tanzania. Neto speaks about the new life in the expanding areas controlled by the guerrillas in Angola, Mozambique, and Guinea (Bissau). He says it is well known that NATO countries (including the U.S. Germany, France, Great Britain, and others) are helping Portugal continue her unjust wars in these countries – wars which already could have ended without these countries’ support. The intervention of the racist South African regime is emerging as an additional problem. Neto repeats an appeal to all Angolan nationals who are refugees in neighboring countries - in Congo (Kinshasa), Congo (Brazzaville), Zambia, Botswana and South West Africa - to return to areas controlled by MPLA and to contribute to the struggle, fight the enemy, and repopulate the territory. The pamphlet discusses iron ore, petroleum, the Benguela Railway, the Revolutionary Government of Angola in Exile (GRAE), and Alexander Taty.
