Luego de un conflicto armado de varios años, donde especialmente se ha visto afectada la industria petrolera transnacional en Nígeria, la guerrilla ecologista y comunitaria Movimiento por la Emancipación del Delta Níger (MEDN) confirmó el inicio de negociaciones con el gobierno regional. Esta confirmación se da luego de rumores salidos desde el gobierno y difundidos por los medios de comunicación, que en un primer momento fueron desmentidos por el grupo rebelde.

Depuis plusieurs mois, des groupes fascistes religieux sèment la terreur dans le nord Mali, et ont imposé une dictature aux populations locales. Composés d'anciens mercenaires kadhafistes, rapatriés avec armes et bagages de Libye, de bandits et trafiquants, ils brandissent opportunément une idéologie politico-religieuse pour justifier leurs activités.

Pensavate che l'Africa Francese fosse una cosa del passato? E invece no, e nonostante la retorica di Hollande su questi temi, così come di molti altri, il Partito Socialista e l'UMP sono come 2 facce della stessa medaglia. [Français]

malifr.jpg imageMali: Areva is well worth a war 17:09 Wed 23 Jan by Alternative libertaire 0 comments

You thought French Africa was a thing of the past? It most certainly is not, and despite Hollande's rhetoric on this issue, as on many others, the Socialist Party and the UMP are like Tweedledum and Tweedledee. [Français]

¿Finalizó la "Françafrique"? Decididamente no y, a pesar de los bellos discursos de Hollande, tanto sobre esta cuestión como sobre tantas otras, el PS y el UMP son dos caras de la misma moneda. [Français]

Für Laurent Gbagbo ist die Partie zu Ende. Der Präsident der Elfenbeinküste wird seinen Platz an Alassane Ouattara abtreten, der von den „Forces nouvelles“ (umbenannt in „Forces républicaines de Côte d'Ivoire“) sowie von den UNO-Truppen und der französischen Armee – der berühmten „Force Licorne“ –, die für den letzten Akt auf die Bühne getreten sind, unterstützt wird. Es ist sehr schwierig, zu wissen, welcher der zwei Kandidaten bei den Präsidentschaftswahlen am 28. November 2010 angesichts des massiven Wahlbetrugs von beiden Seiten die Mehrheit der Stimmen erhalten hat. Aber das ist auch nebensächlich: Die ausländischen Mächte haben auf jeden Fall Alassane Ouattara zum Gewinner gekürt. [Français] [Castellano] [Ελληνικά]

image"Seek Ye First the Political Kingdom"? Learning from Kwame Nkrumah's Failures in Ghana Apr 04 by Tokologo African Anarchist Collective 1 comments

Ghana, West Africa, was a British colony called "Gold Coast" until 1957. It became the first independent country in "black" Africa after reforms and struggles in the 1940s and 1950s. The new president, the brilliant Kwame Nkrumah, and his Convention People's Party (CPP), had fought for independence. Now they aimed at major changes in the society, even speaking of socialism. And Nkrumah proposed a united African government for the continent: Pan-Africanism.

But by the mid-1960s, hopes were fading. There were good reforms in education and services and self- respect for Africans that helped remove colonialism's damages. But the CPP has become a dictatorship, with a personality cult around Nkrumah. Unions and struggles were suppressed. The economy was in trouble. A new elite hijacked independence and resources. When the military seized power in 1966, people celebrated in the streets. Today Ghana is one of the poorest African countries.

What went wrong and what can we, anarchists in Africa, learn from this experience?

textBeyond MayDay Celebrations: Towards a Viable Counter Movement in Nigeria May 01 by Warren McGregor 0 comments

The origin of May Day, International Workers Day, lies in the historic fight for decent working hours that culminated in the execution of four trade unionists in Chicago, the United States, in November 1887. This was a decisive moment in the struggle for a just society through militant trade unionism. In Nigeria, May Day was first declared in 1980 by the People’s Redemption Party (PRP)-led government of the late Abubakar Rimi in Kano State.

imageThe war in Mali Jan 22 by Filistina 0 comments

Regardless of what is said in the media, the aim of this new war is none other than to strip another country of its natural resources by ensuring access for international companies to do so. What is now happening in Mali with bombs and bullets, is the same thing that is happening in Ireland, Greece, Portugal and Spain through debt bondage. [Ελληνικά]

imageΟ πόλεμος στο Μάλι Jan 22 by Filistina 0 comments

Ανεξάρτητα από το τι αναφέρεται στα μέσα μαζικής ενημέρωσης, ο στόχος αυτού του νέου πολέμου δεν είναι άλλος από την απογύμνωση μιας ακόμη χώρας από τους φυσικούς πόρους της με την εξασφάλιση της πρόσβασης των διεθνών εταιρειών για να το κάνουν. Αυτό που τώρα γίνεται στο Μάλι με βόμβες και σφαίρες, γίνεται στην Ιρλανδία, την Ελλάδα, την Πορτογαλία και την Ισπανία, μέσω της υποδούλωσης του χρέους. [English]

Fela Kuti [1] le chantait en pidgin english: «Dey do dem whole», en Afrique c’est la totale. Tous les fléaux du capitalisme s’y retrouvent et bénéficient au pouvoir politique, lui-même à la solde des pétroliers et gaziers occidentaux. [2]
