Rep. Abzug calls for CIA to get out of Angola: 1976

U.S. Rep. Bella Abzug (D-N.Y.), speaking from the steps of the U.S. Capitol January 19, 1976, calls on the United States to end its involvement in the Angolan civil war that followed the ouster of Portuguese colonialists.

The rally in freezing temperatures drew several hundred that also heard from veteran activists David Dellinger and Cora Weiss.

In 1975 after a long struggle, the Marxist People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) achieved independence. However the National Union for the Total Independence of
Angola (UNITA--backed by the U.S., South Africa and the People’s Republic of China) waged a military campaign against the new government until 2002.

Revelations that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency was funding UNITA led to the Capitol Hill demonstration that was sponsored by Women’s Strike for Peace, among other organizations.

Africa Railways - Angola - CFB Class 10D "Beyer Garratt" type 4-8-2+2-8-4 steam locomotives Nr. 367 & 363 (Beyer Peacock Locomotive Works, Manchester Gorton 7673 & 7669 / 1956)

Before Independence from Portugal in 1975 - and the period of civil war that followed it, which devastated much of the country's infrastructure - the railways of Angola played an important part in its economic development. The three major systems (CF Luanda, CF Benguela and CF Moçamedes) were quite separate concerns and only the CFB was inter-connected with other parts of Southern Africa, through its border crossing into Congo. Before Independence had been achieved, security became a major problem during the mid-1960s, with the upper section of its 1350km route to the border being reduced to daylight-only operation, with additional protection provided for footplate crews - and visible military presence in armoured railcars, that would precede trains to seek out insurgents

Snaking through the S-bends on the Coruteva Mountains section (between Benguela and Cubal), a pair of CFB oil-fired class 10D Garratt locomotives (Nrs. 367 & 363) are arranged in typical "Dupla" formation. They were built in 1956 by Beyer Peacock under the Gorton Foundry works numbers 7673 and 7669 respectively




Africa Railways - Angola - CFA "Beyer Garratt" type 4-8-2+2-8-4 steam locomotive Nr. 504 (Beyer Peacock Locomotive Works, Manchester Gorton 7311 / 1949)

The three major systems (CF Luanda, CF Benguela and CF Moçamedes) were quite separate concerns and only the CFB was inter-connected with other parts of Southern Africa, through its border crossing into the Congo (Zaire)

CFA (ex-CF Luanda) 501 class Garratt locomotive Nr. 504 was built by Beyer Peacock under the Gorton Foundry works number 7311 / 1949. It is here seen on the roundhouse turntable at Luanda depot in 1970




Africa Railways - Angola - CFA 251 Class 2-8-2 steam locomotive Nr. 252 (Jung Locomotive Works 12262 / 1956)

This photo shows a line of stored CF Luanda 551 Class 4-8-2+2-8-4 Garratt locomotives in the works yard at Muceques in 1970. Only delivered by Friedrich Krupp in 1956 (under works numbers 2493-2498) the six locomotives of this type - CFA numbers 551-556 - had accumulated very low mileage before general dieselization had displaced them from their mainline duties

A Hard Paddle

A year ago today ...

During the Northern Explorer tour with Pierre Duval from Bushbaby Safaris, Andy and Angie Rae from Rae Safaris, and the inimitable Andrew Goodall from Nature's Image Photography, we traveled west from Victoria Falls to Namibia's Skeleton Coast via some of the most spectacular scenery and incredible wildlife you could ever hope to see.

Day 10 we had a long drive to Kaisosi River Lodge. An afternoon cruise on the Kavango River, with Angola on the right bank and Namibia on the left, gave us a glimpse of the simple lifestyle of the local people.

Great to look back on these happy times.
