FLEC calls for the end of military operations against civilians in Cabinda

The Front for the Liberation of the State of Cabinda - Armed Forces of Cabinda (FLEC-FAC) called this Wednesday for an end to Angola's "indiscriminate military operations" against civilians and urged the international community to "come out of its complicit silence".


Through a "war statement", the armed wing of the independence movement in Cabinda called for an end to these actions, which it attributed to the Government, in the territory of Cabinda and on the borders of the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The movement revealed that, on Tuesday, "a pastor and six civilians from Cabinda were murdered by soldiers of the Angolan Armed Forces in the village of Tandou Mboma - Tchiamba-nzassi axis, on the border of Cabinda and Congo Brazzaville (Republic of Congo).

"Faced with the repressive policy of the Angolan Government in Cabinda, the political leadership of FLEC-FAC, once again, appeals to the international community to come out of its complicit silence", reads the statement.

FLEC-FAC urges the international community to swiftly adopt measures regarding the situation in Cabinda.

"We denounce the systemic oppression of the population of Cabinda by the Angolan State", continues the note, signed by Gelson Fernandes N'Kasu.

The FLEC has been fighting for several years for the independence of the territory, from which a large part of the national oil comes, claiming that the enclave was a Portuguese protectorate - as established in the Treaty of Simulambuco, signed in 1885 - and not an integral part of the territory. angolan

The Government normally refuses to recognize the existence of soldiers killed as a result of guerrilla actions by the independentists, or any situation of instability in that northern province of Angola, always underlining the unity of the territory.
