Somaliland does not have to be on a map to exist. Somaliland has to recognize itself first before other definition. It is with self recognition that existence occurs because existence is within oneself first. Even in nation building, there needs to be self recognition above all else. Now if you want to talk about Somaliland come on off anon and let’s use facts instead of references to Disneyland.
Thank you so much for following and expressing your interest in Somaliland. Although, we do not follow back on this blog, your support is greatly appreciated.
Over the few months this blog has been made, we have had hits from all over the world! To anyone that has followed, we are asking that you give any feedback or suggestions for this blog! Feel free to message us!
One follower has suggested we have a Somaliland Independence Day photo sharing event. On May 18, we ask that you share your Somaliland Independence Day photos on the Somaliland/Somali tags. We will then reblog your post with the link to your blog page. We feel this will be a great way to celebrate this special day together. So rev up your cameras and take pictures of anything Somaliland related on May 18!
We have also heard from many people about trying to make “somaliland” or “teamsomaliland” trend on twitter. Making a worldwide trending topic on twitter is difficult but we can at least try to make a region trend, ie. United Kingdom or UAE. So tweet away about Somaliland on May 18 and let us show the world who we are. If you want more info about efforts for this look up recognize somaliland or teamsomaliland on twitter.
Last, we would like to advertise as much Somaliland Independence Day events on here before the big day so if you have flyer or know of any message us.
Hi, I am a big supporter of Somaliland, what exactly is holding it back from recognition?
That is a very good question. Somaliland has in our opinion all the merits to be credited as a new country. Somaliland has come a long way since it gained independence and has achieved huge successes. We feel that Somaliland has not yet been recognized because of the reluctance of the TFG, al-shabaab, and some members of the African Union who are unwilling to facilitate change.
As you can see Somaliland is well on it’s way to democracy. Here is a recent photo that was published with an article by The Economist which calls Somalia Africa’s only failed state and considers Somaliland one of the 11 flawed democracies existing in Africa. (The article says there is no full democracy in Africa yet.) I hope this served to answer your question.
