LETTER TO MR. ATTLEE
Excellency,-I have taken the liberty to draw your attention to the
afflictions with which the Somali people are burdened under your
government, which is represented by the British Military Adminstration.
"We have heard and believed that Great Britain had sacrificed the
blood and lives of her sons and daughters, and devoted all her resources
of wealth and manpower, in the fight against the Axis Powers in order to
make the world safe for freedom and Democracy.
Somalis were not the enemy of the Allies. It was their misfortune that
your enemy - the Italians - forcibly occupied and subjected our country
fifty years ago. We are, therefore, among the enslaved and oppressed to
whom Freedom and Democracy was promised.
the people of Somaliland the five years since the day of our 'liberation'
have been conspicuous in their lack of humane considerations and the
brutal suppression of democratic rights. To-day the British Military
Adminstration is almost feared and disliked as the tyrannical Fascist Rule.
discrimination exists in Somaliland, notably at Mogadishu.
Punishment Laws have been enacted and are enforced. They are the means of
spreading terror and want among the people.
instance, some Askaris recently deserted. The livestock of their innocent
tribesmen was seized.
criminals have not take refuge with the tribesmen. The incident had taken
place very many miles away from the tribal area. No livestock of the
deserters was in the hands of the tribesmen. The milk of live- stock is
the staple food of the people. Seizure of livestock is all the more
detestable in that it deprives the women and children of their means of
sustenance, through no fault of their own.
Punishment is also the root cause of the majority of killings in
Somaliland, for when the ignorant tribesmen get excited at such a
tyrannical act and protest against it by stone- throwing or the futile
brandishing of sticks, they are shot down for rioting.
for slave-labour exists. The poor wretches thus collected are parcelled
out by the British Military Adminstration among the agricultural
concessions at Genale, along the Juba River and the area held by the
S.A.I.S. ( Societa Agricola Italo- Somalo ).
slave-labours are compelled to work in these areas under conditions which
are a living mockery of Democracy and the ideas of human rights. The
workers are brutally flogged in public for routine offences. "Some
officers of the Adminstration flagrantly violate one of the foremost of
human right-the sanctity of the person.
and respected Somalis are bullied and struck in offices by them or on
their orders at any show of spririt. "The laws and policy under which
our country is adminstered were forged mainly by the Italians and fascist
statesmen for their own vile ends. The application of this tyrannical law
by a Democratic Power is not only a great wrong but is causing the gravest
miscariage of justice.
recall to you the ideals and principles for which the heroes of England
and the Allied countries gave their lives, and beg of you to send a
disinterested and competent Commission or Mission to examine our complaint
and make recommendations for the speedy relief of the causes of misrule.
have the honour to be, Sir, your obedient servent, "ABDULKADIR
SAKHAWADEEN ( a Somali )
dacwaddii Sakhawadiin Ingiriisku wuu qaatay waxaana la joojiyey falalkii
xumaa ee Somalidu loo geeysan jiray .
kastba ha ahaatee xaqa lagama guuleysto, waraaqda Mudane C/risaaq waxaan
ka garanay gayiaga uu yahay iyo waliba in Gen. Abshir oo reer Carte ah
horeyna ugu fashilmay siyaasadda uu ku guuleystay in uu galaafto Raķisal
Wasaarihii hore ee Somaliaya.
