"The African Union must take proactive action, militarily intervene and organise a free and fair general elections," MELS said in one of its resolutions.

The party took a swipe at the partisan approach adopted by NATO forces in Libya and demanded that: "Imperialist forces must forthwith cease from attacking Libya and providing weapons to puppet forces". The party wants the West to stop buying oil from reactionary rebel forces.

MELS said Botswana youth and women would like the government to help students in secondary schools and colleges to build students representative councils offices and subsidise their administration.

The party said government must compromise on the 'no work no pay' principle in dealing with the effects of the civil service strike. Otherwise, students will

be affected negatively.

The party called on the government to reinstate all workers dismissed because of the strike.

The party said the decision to exclude it from opposition cooperation talks is undesirable but accepted. The conference resolved that MELS will intensify its campaign and expose the programmes of the cooperating parties for what they are. "Our cadres are now free to criticise any programme," he said.

MELS is worried about the use of security forces to suppress and threaten the people saying it is a dangerous trend in the country's politics.

It called on government to apologise and undertake to stop the practice. The party called on government to revive the spirit of consultation with the people before taking major decisions.
