SUBJECT: Today, the Youth from the angolan revolucionary movement delivered an open letter to President Barack Obama and the Angolan Embassy in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

The ANGOLAN REVOLUTIONARY YOUTH MOVEMENT would like to inform that two of its members, Adolfo Campos and Pedrowski Teca, have delivered an open letter to the American President, Barack Hussein Obama, today, 1 July 2013, in Dar Es Salaam, in the United Republic of Tanzania.

Being the last stop of his recent visit in Africa, President Barack Obama arrived today in Dar Es Salaam, after passing by Senegal and South Africa. 

The open letter by the Angolan Revolutionary Youth Movement was delivered as an urgent letter to the Embassy of the United States of America in Tanzania, which was received with admiration and a guarantee that it will be handed over to President Obama, whose visit in that country will last until Wednesday, 3 July 2013.

The delegation of the Revolutionary Youth Movement has also handed over a copy of that open letter at the Angolan Embassy in Tanzania, where they met with the Second-Secretary, José Rodrigues, who presented the ambassador Ambrósio Lukoki. 

The Angolan ambassador in Tanzania, Ambrósio Lukoki, was not invited to the activities that involved the visit of the American President, therefore, he travelled to Uganda, where he was invited at the independence celebration of that country.

The open letter sent to Barack Obama by the Angolan Revolutionary Youth Movement, aims to bring to his attention, the continuous human rights violations perpetrated by the regime of his counterpart, president José Eduardo dos Santos of the Republic of Angola.

Specifically, the letter exposes 5 pertinent cases that happened after the visit of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, in Angola in April this year.

There was also attached a “memory-stick” of 8GB that contains shocking pictures and videos that exposes human rights violations, specially the right to assemble and protest, by the Government of José Eduardo dos Santos.

At the end of the letter of 7 pages, the revolutionary youth made 8 proposals to President Barack Obama, that can be used as a focus point to put diplomatic pressure that can solve many problems of the Angolan people.

The open letter, written in English and Portuguese, will be made public by this week.

Yours sincerely,

For the Angolan Revolutionary Youth Movement
Adolfo Campos and Pedrowski Teca in Dar Es Salaam
