Does it mean that Zambia and her government are Right to crush the Life and Spirit of Barotseland just because she has Military hardware?
Are Zambians Right just because they are Mightier militarily compared to Barotseland, and do they have to oppress and persecute the people of Barotseland?
Must they feel justified to arrest the people of Barotseland any time and any day, detain them without trial or charge them with any Treasonous or seditious charges, some punishable only by Death according to their Draconian Zambian laws, even for the simplest of things such as celebrating the progress of their own new Barotseland government?
What does Zambia gain by arresting a one year old child together with his grandmother, or an 87 year old grandfather with his handicapped son.
How are these a danger to any society?
Zambia! How can unarmed young men and women, without even a pebble in hand, threaten the existence of your own Utopia?
When it best suited them, they went gallivanting the breadth and width of Barotseland preaching the validity of the Barotseland Agreement 1964.
Nobody arrested them for treason or sedition then.
Why, now that they are Mighty, are they arresting hundreds of poor helpless Barotse people who have been made so hopelessly poor by deliberate neglect or because of their lope-sided policies that have send them to perpetual poverty.
Now the people of Barotseland say:
"Enough Lies, and No More Lies!
" We will no longer hear your demands!
"We will fight for our right to be free!
"We will sing!
"We will sing!
"We will sing our own song!
"Bulozi fasi labondataluna!
Join us tonight at 19:30hrs Central African Time as we CHAT and talk about the recent arrest of over hundreds of the people of Barotseland.
Remember this famous quote:
“First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.”
“When Pastor Niemöller was put in a concentration camp we wrote the year 1937; when the concentration camp was opened we wrote the year 1933, and the people who were put in the camps then were Communists. Who cared about them? We knew it, it was printed in the newspapers.
Who raised their voice, maybe the Confessing Church? We thought: Communists, those opponents of religion, those enemies of Christians - "should I be my brother's keeper?"
Then they got rid of the sick, the so-called incurables. - I remember a conversation I had with a person who claimed to be a Christian. He said: Perhaps it's right, these incurably sick people just cost the state money, and they are just a burden to themselves and to others. Isn't it best for all concerned if they are taken out of the middle [of society]? -- Only then did the church as such take note. Then we started talking, until our voices were again silenced in public. Can we say, we aren't guilty/responsible? The persecution of the Jews, the way we treated the occupied countries, or the things in Greece, in Poland, in Czechoslovakia or in Holland, that were written in the newspapers
I believe, we Confessing-Church-Christians have every reason to say: mea culpa, mea culpa! We can talk ourselves out of it with the excuse that it would have cost me my head if I had spoken out.”
