France's National Assembly and Senate have voted to extend the country's military intervention in Mali. A resolution passed both houses of parliament on April 22. Not a single vote was cast in opposition. Three days later, the United Nations Security Council approved Resolution 2100, creating a policing mission beginning July 1, 2013. The mission is called by its French acronym MINUSMA. Its projected size is 11,200 soldiers and 1,440 police.

France perpetrated two large deceptions in conducting its military intervention into Mali six weeks ago. These have been universally accepted in mainstream media reporting. read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment

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] read full story / add a comment

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] read full story / add a comment
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] read full story / add a comment
west africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Monday January 21, 2013 18:13 byRoger Annis
France, the former slave power of west Africa, has poured into Mali with a vengeance in a military attack launched on January 11. French warplanes are bombing towns and cities across the vast swath of northern Mali, a territory measuring some one thousand kilometers from south to north and east to west. French soldiers in armoured columns have launched a ground offensive, beginning with towns in the south of the northern territory, some 300 km north and east of the Malian capital of Bamako.

A French armoured convoy entered Mali several days ago from neighbouring Ivory Coast, another former French colony. French troops spearheaded the overthrow of that country's government in 2011.

The invasion has received universal support from France's imperialist allies. The U.S., Canada and Europe are assisting financially and with military transport. To provide a figleaf of African legitimacy, plans have been accelerated to introduce troops from eight regional countries to join the fighting (map here ). read full story / add a comment

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] read full story / add a comment

Hundreds of workers are striking against non-payment of bonuses, for an end to racism, and improved conditions at Sierra Leone’s largest diamond mine in Koidu. Following a blockade of the entrances and clashes with scabs, the armed forces were deployed, who opened fire on the workers, killing two and injuring many others.

Le premier tour des élections françaises se tiendra le 22 avril prochain. On s’attend que le candidat socialiste François Hollande prenne le dessus sur le président gaulliste sortant Nicolas Sarkozy, sans obtenir toutefois de majorité préparant le décor à une fuite de capitaux en mai.

The first round of French presidential elections will take place on 22 April. Socialist candidate François Hollande is expected to have the edge on incumbent Gaullist President Nicolas Sarkozy, but will likely not earn a majority, which would then set the scene for a run-off in May. But behind the scenes, few French voters are aware of the half-century-long secret system of la valise, “the suitcase” system whereby African dictators send millions of francs to corrupt the European political process - by literally buying the French Presidency.

Après plusieurs mois d’un bras de fer entre Gbagbo et Ouattara pour savoir qui devait occuper le fauteuil présidentiel, le monde entier a pu voir l’image d’un homme en maillot de corps entouré d’hommes en armes prenant la pose devant les caméras. La manière dont on a pu montrer ces images est déjà révélatrice d’un traitement différentiel médiatique de notre « outre-mer », des territoires lointains mais toujours sous la tutelle politico-militaire de la France malgré les discours officiels après cinquante ans d’« indépendance » formelle. Avant de s’interroger sur le « silence éloquent » qui a entouré en France le niveau de violence inouï, encore plus élevé que lors des phases de conflit précédentes en Côte d’Ivoire, il est nécessaire de revenir sur les causes structurelles et les étapes successives qui ont conduit à cette situation dramatique. read full story / add a comment

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] read full story / add a comment
