Labor's Mugabe dilemma (letter)


by M. Gordon

News Weekly, April 14, 2007

Sir,

The recent media coverage of Robert Mugabe's terrible repression in Zimbabwe has aroused international outrage - and rightly so!

The ALP may be somewhat on the spot too. Angola is sending 2,500 of its brutal paramilitary police, who are feared by their own people, to aid Mugabe in his repression.

Angola's dictator has been in power longer than Mugabe, and his party - the MPLA (formerly the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Angola) - is a member of the Socialist International, as is the ALP.

When will the ALP issue an appropriate repudiation of its Angolan allies, and possibly also of South Africa's governing African National Congress, which is also a member of the Socialist International and a defender of Mugabe?

If not, is it a sign that socialist solidarity counts for more than human rights?

(Mr) M. Gordon,
