Free Africa is a now defunct party that was abandoned during the occupation of South Africa by Brazil. Members of the party later on still played a role in South African society. After the PTO attempt SAIL was reactivated and many members of Free Africa joined there and were thus active mostly in the United South Africa.
Free Africa was created during the Indonesian occupation to gather all of South Africa under one banner. This succeeded and all active people joined. Sadly enough some people left before the General Elections to create HNP. At the time, Free Africa was one of the biggest political powers in South Africa (in both numbers and power). It was part of the now-dormant SAIL, alongside the Dem. Anarcho-Socialism Party and the also major Black Lion Front, which competed with when SAIL is not active.
A Rising Star
Free Africa created in late June and won both July and August elections. It lost much power after the Zockyist / Croatian take-over and joined the Black Lion Front in the short-lived Independent South African Republic and the South African Independence League. Its major competitors (with SAIL's dormancy) were the Black Lion Front, Proud Africans, United World Party and the Universal Left. During the months of January and February 2009 the Free Africa membership has gone up considerably partly due to the fact that it has given a home to South Africans from all walks of life who start playing the game and wish to free their country from the yoke of Indonesian occupation. On 26 February 2009 the strength of the party was starting to materialize when they hit a membership of 100 and got 21 congress members with a 52.5% representation in congress.
Apart from Free Africa standing for the Liberation of South Africa, they were up to the abandoning of the party also the strongest pro business party in South Africa choosing to only allow nationalization as an extreme last resort and preferring the economy to balance itself naturally.
