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. read full story / add a comment

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? read full story / add a comment
west africa / imperialism / war / non-anarchist press Monday February 09, 2015 17:08 byErnest Tate
A press report in 1983 that a popular uprising in Upper Volta, a small and poor land-locked country in Western Africa had led to an obscure, but charismatic army officer becoming head of state was truly inspiring news for all those looking for some kind of breakthrough against imperialism in that part of the world. It had come after the depressing news that Margaret Thatcher's Britain had defeated Argentina in the Malvinas and Ronald Reagan's America had crushed Grenada, a clear message to the world that, on a moment's notice, imperialism would brutally crush anything that threatened its power. But because the American empire had been taken by surprise by the Cuban revolution twenty-four years earlier, many of us were then hopeful that maybe we were witnessing such a possibility again, in Africa. read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment

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.

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

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 19:13 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 http://www.mapsofworld.com/africa-political-map.htm ). 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.
