Turning Point in Namibia
by George M. Houser
New York, New York, United States
American Committee on Africa
In this article, George Houser says actions taken in the next few weeks may indicate whether there can be a negotiated settlement for Namibian independence between South Africa and international community (represented by the United Nations), or whether there will be a protracted struggle involving guerrilla warfare through the liberation forces of SWAPO (South West African People's Organization) and possible comprehensive sanctions against South Africa by most nations of the world. The article discusses the passage of Security Council Resolution 385 on January 30, 1976. Houser also discussed the role of the frontline states of Africa (Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique and Angola). This article was reprinted from the December 27, 1978 issue of The Christian Century.
