"Since, in the long run, every planetary society will be endangered by impacts from space, every surviving civilization is obliged to become spacefaring--not because of exploratory or romantic zeal, but for the most practical reason imaginable: staying alive." - Carl Sagan, 1994.

ADDRESS TO THE NATION OF THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO BY PRESIDENT MOBUTU

A special executive broadcast on RTNC by President Joseph-Desiré Mobutu, speaking live from the capital.

Brothers and sisters; fellow citizens of the Democratic Republic of the Congo! I, your president, salute each and every citizen of our nation, and address you at a crucial time for the Congo, and all the world.

Africa knows well the dangers of colonialism. Of poisonous ideology. Of exploitation: both ill, and well-meant. The nineteenth century was a great trial. Darkness and slavery threatened our very existence. How many millions of our brothers died for greed and barbarity? How many more wept as civilisation was mutilated by a foreign invader? Not as many as who sharpened their spears, waiting for the liberation they knew was ours by right.

And the twentieth century since Christ, too, has been a test for the African man. Since the great world war, we have fought for our freedom, with much success - but problems remain. The love of gold that drove the devil-hearted conquistadors to our mighty land is not yet defeated. Nor are the attempts, by foreign ideologues, to harm our youthful national consciousness through poisonous and false ideals, contrary to the popular will of sovereign Africa.

But in the past ten years, we, the soldiers of a reborn nation, have defeated the mercenaries of latter-day Leopolds; the red tricks of modern Tippu Tip. In these years we have seen the darkness of night begin to surrender to the first rays of the mighty sun on our Africa. Along the mighty Zaire, we are neither right, nor left, but authentically Congolese.

Yet this struggle may be dwarfed, in comparison to what I - your protector, your president, and your chief - have learnt. As all the great leaders of the world have. From the sky has come a great UFO - an unknown flying behemoth - that has plunged South America into darkness and anarchy. Whether strangers, demons, or friends, we do not know.

But I, your president, know one thing. We know strange new weapons have been given to thieves and murderers in Latin America, who wish to terrorise all good men. Christian, Muslim, even atheist. So this at least is true - that the alien can lie, that he can deceive, that he can mislead. They have not come in peace.

I know another thing. The people of this great nation of river, mountain, forest, and plain, were disunited the last time an alien invader approached our shores. Africa was disunited. Our world was fractured, distracted, deceived. Sons and daughters of the Zaire, this is not the case today. We are stronger today, than we have been for generations. Thus we seek peace with these star-strangers, but the men and women of the United Nations - from China to Chile - must stand united. The lessons of the past century must not be forgotten, when one tribe was played off against the other, for the colonist partitioner's gain.

Therefore, as President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Chairperson of the Organisation of African Unity, I call for an emergency summit of the OAU, for Africa's nations to discuss Africa's response. I also call immediately for any opposition factions in our nation to refrain from violence, following the lead of the UNSC, and to enter talks with the government. Congolese unity cannot ever be compromised - especially so, at this testing time. Likewise, we must not be afraid to speak with regimes with whom, politically, we do not agree - but who share a common cause of uniting humanity against the sky-worshippers that rise in the west.

OPENING ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT MOBUTU TO THE EMERGENCY KINSHASA SUMMIT OF THE OAU

My fellow African nations of the OAU,

Every meeting of the Organisation of African Unity is a cause for celebration, of how far we have come. In the few years since the founding of the OAU, Africa has seen many more nations liberated and gaining independence - so many, that 38 nations are now represented here, with more eagerly awaiting their chance to join the African community of nations.

And indeed, the Organisation's short history since 1963 has seen great strides taken in a hundred different fields - from agriculture to medicine, from forestry to fishing. Africa, and African man, has been waking up to his destiny. But I have not called this extraordinary summit for discussion of the matters normally so important to us; the racist regimes still carved from southern Africa, or the foreign powers seeking our resources for their own gain.

The information from Buenos Aires will have shocked you all to the core, as it has me. That such a UFO could arrive unannounced - whether the superpowers had warning is conjecture - is a cause for alarm, and many of you will know the fear it has caused. First Contact. And in their wake, this "Posadism" - with alien guns, alien rule, and alien terror brought to Latin America. Though the UFO claims to come in peace, with it has come war.

We Africans suffered once - and still do - from contact with a Europe and a white man bent on conquest. Then, we were divided, and our resources easily taken. Then, we were easily misled, and played against one another. The OAU's founding charter is a vow to our ancestors and our children to never again allow this to happen. But we must still consider - if war will come to the globe, and if this Posadist ideology gains ground - then Africa, sweet Africa, will suffer, coveted by all.

Thus our task must be to decide on our response collectively. This does not stop us from acting individually; we are an association of free and sovereign countries. But we must consider the danger of doing nothing. As the proverb says: the absent are always wrong. We must work to improve Africa's capacity to defend herself, or else risk apocalypse.

I have therefore brought to the table several motions. First, and most controversial; that we as an organisation tentatively and temporarily call for a ceasefire across the continent, from the liberation wars in the south, to the civil wars further north. But, this is contingent on anti-apartheid forces being unmolested and unattacked; and on all parties in civil conflicts accepting the ceasefire; and said ceasefire being monitored by Africans.

This is difficult for all of us to do; but the fact that the United States even countenance withdrawal from Vietnam is a marker of how times have changed; and we shall also as an organisation, never accept racism or colonialism as the status quo save as a temporary ceasefire. At the least, in the case of civil conflicts within the OAU - it is worth the attempt - for it would show up any alien infiltration attempts as an alarm bell.

Secondly, I would call for member nations to look to learn as much as we can of these aliens, through participation in the UN mission to the UFO, and the funding of UFO studies in several educational establishments in North, West, Central and East Africa. These shall provide a framework to assess First Contact, and advice African society on the nature of our visitors, working with this emerging field across the world.

Thirdly, I would call for us all to prepare our infrastructure for the kind of shock to the world trade economy that the Second World War caused. I already have my own government looking at ways to improve food production and storage in case of any further disruption - and able to provide aid, if needed, across the continent. Equally important is the improvement of intra-OAU transport links - airports, rail lines, roads and rivers must be readied.

Fourthly, and finally, I would call for the OAU to coordinate our militaries in observation and response to any UFO incident upon our own shores. Should Africa be victim to alien equipped rebels - or, the Almighty forbid, a second UFO - then we must be ready and able to respond. We must train our militaries for the fight; we must train our recon forces to spot any suspicious UFO activity or technology; we must even, brothers, be open to the possibility of OAU peacekeepers being trained - elite units which can be deployed in the face of alien aggression, if necessary.

These are four very great points - and perhaps easily ignored in less trying times. I raise them here as chairperson and as host, with the knowledge that this organisation is vital to Africa. For there to be an Africa, and an OAU, for the future, we must look past our differences - and look to ready Africa for a First Contact none of us can truly guess at.
