Our struggle for the independence of Cabinda is peacefully centralized, defending the territorial integrity of Cabinda, boldly confronting the Angolan invading state in Cabinda without the use of weapons, no violence, intensifying the dialogue inside Cabinda and taking measures simply advanced in the process of diplomacy at the national and international levels in order to negotiate the problem of Cabinda through a frank, open and complete dialogue with all the forces of Cabinda, civil society and without excluding the Churches that occupy ultimately a very important role in this mission of peace and peaceful resolution of conflicts in the world.
As established in the Treaty of Simulambuco signed on February 1, 1885, where Cabinda became a totally Portuguese protectorate different from Angola, which at the time was an Ultra-Marine province of Portugal.
We recall that Cabinda was invaded in 1974-1975 by the military forces of the MPLA with the support of Cuban and Russian troops and thus made Cabinda an overseas province and a colony of Angola and that it did not has never been an integral part of the Angolan state.
Cabinda has fought for independence from 1963 until today.
Cabinda is not Angola !
