Ironically, many of the people celebrating this would hate and slander the SYL if it existed today.

SYL didn't unify the country. This is historical revisionism. The country's union was pushed by the political parties in the north (former British Somaliland), who instigated the talks with parties in the south (including SYL) around the year 1957.

In fact in the negotiation between the north and the south, the parties in the north did dispense with many things, e.g. the presidency, prime minister, the capital, head of police, head of military and they didn't even ask for getting a fair representation in the parliament. The innocent and unselfish negotiation tactics of Somali politicians from British Somaliland, especially the leading Party SNL were the key factor for the "union". For the interested people they can watch the speech of Ina Cigaal AUN about these events. The man was the head of the negotiations from the north side and the first international recognized Somali State head (for the first 5 days).

Interesting to see, that the people who really were the ones that unified the country are never mentioned in the history books. It is true to say that history is what the "winner" (The one in power at a certain time) writes and not what actually happened.

SYL unified the regions they hailed from, which was "italian Somaliland" and yes, the northerners joined the Southerners and thus the Somali republic was born.

It was a joint effort.

The men and women during colonialism were patriotic and cooperated with each other, unlike the nightmares that are constantly selected in Mogadishu.

Im sorry i did misunderstand you. I agree that these men were patriotic and loved their country and people. May our creator be merciful on the souls of these heros. I ask myself what would happened, if our second president wouldn't be killed in 1969 and the putsch wouldn't happened. The Somali Republic would probably be a big player in Africa and the Islamic world.

No worries walaale. Somalia would have been a developed country! Like you said, may they all rest in peace and may a new generation of patriotic and pragmatic leaders take over. Aameen!

Violence begets violence and the coup of 1969 was un-islamic and unethical and somehow, we wonder why the country disintegrated into chaos!

Wasn't Egal AUN part of the party? The SYL was by far the most popular one all over, they had offices all over Somalia proper and in Djibouti, Jigjiga, Harar, and NFD. It didn't represent any one group only.

Egal joined SYL later. In February 1960 there was the British Somaliland Council elections and SYL got 0 seats.
 
Wasn't he one of the most prominent politicians from the region? Why did he join SYL if they weren't popular?
Egal AUN was in the SNL which was the biggest party in the north but left them and made a new party called SNC. Then the elections came in 1964 and SYL won the majority of the seats. In 1966 Egal AUN joined SYL.
