What constitutes the Somaliland nation?

Postby Mad May » Tue May 18, 2010 6:21 am

This isn't a qabiil/negative thread so don't start. Just describe what you consider the Somaliland 'nation' to be, what makes you a distinct group that has a right to self-determination? Do you choose to consider yourself part of that nation, on a civic basis, or is it something you just are?

Only somalilanders reply please...

The fact that we are a self defined political and cultural community.as well having an awareness of a territorial dimension to our nation.The fact that Somaliland state has exercised control of institutions and laws, the national media and the national education system endorses this notion for us

Thank you for your input :up:
I still cant grasp how Somalilanders (in Somaliland) define themselves as a distinct nation, distinct from other Somali speakers. So far you have only defined the territorial aspect, which wasn't defined by Somali's, so what is it about the people within Somaliland that makes them a distinct 'political and cultural community'

I think your responds here and the prior one above are both accurate and adequate.

Wixi iintaa ka badan waa caanaanimadii qoomkii nabi muse (CS) lagu cadaabay.


Being SOMALI is a race not a nationality. Somaliland is my nationality and SOMALI is my race.
