central africa / imperialism / war Wednesday April 29, 2015 - 17:31 by Shawn Hattingh   image 1 image
In the heat of the struggle for statues like that of Rhodes – the arch-symbol of British imperialism – to be pulled down, and in the midst of the horror of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, few people seemed to notice an announcement by Jacob Zuma that South African troops will remain at war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) for another year. Of course, Zuma made this announcement on behalf of the South African ruling class – comprised today of white capitalists and a black elite mainly centred around the state, Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and ‘traditional’ royal families. In this there was a real irony that while Rhodes’s likeness was falling from its perch at the University of Cape Town, and immigrants from other parts of Africa and Asia were being attacked because of sentiments stoked up by a rehabilitated relic of apartheid (the Zulu king, Zwelithini), the South African ruling class felt brash enough to say they will be continuing their own imperialist war in the DRC. ... read full story / add a comment

De inzet van een militaire macht van de EU in Tsjaad en de Centraal Afrikaanse Republiek (CAR) werd breed afgeschilderd als een humanitaire interventie, om vluchtelingen en humanitaire arbeiders te beschermen tegen aanvallen door milities uit Darfur, maar kunnen we echt verwachten dat ze in het beleid van deze landen een positieve rol spelen?

central africa / imperialism / war Thursday September 11, 2008 - 23:05 by Ronan McAoidh
The deployment of an EU military force to Chad and Central African Republic (CAR) was widely spun as a humanitarian intervention, to protect refugees and humanitarian workers from attacks by Darfur-based militias, but can we really expect them to play a positive role in these countries’ politics? ... read full story / add a comment
centraal-afrika / imperialisme / oorlog Monday September 10, 2007 - 19:27 by Steffi
Dit artikel geeft aan hoe invloed van buitenaf een hoofdrol heeft gespeeld in de geschiedenis van de Kongo en hoe het nog steeds het leven in de Kongo bepaalt. Het onderzoekt daardoor hoe de natie-staat een middel is om mensen te verdelen langs kunstmatige lijnen, in het bijzonder in Afrika. ... read full story / add a comment
zentralafrika / imperialismus / krieg Friday July 13, 2007 - 00:40 by Steffi
Immer wieder hören wir in den Medien vom “Ersten Afrikanischen Weltkrieg” oder vom “Herz der Finsternis”, einem westlichen Klischee, das dazu verwendet wurde und wird, um Kolonialismus und post-koloniale Intervention zu rechtfertigen. Wir glauben, dass der Konflikt im Kongo ein weiterer afrikanischer Konflikt sei, der auf alten „Stammesfehden“ beruht oder weil das arme Afrika von gierigen multinationalen Gesellschaften ausgebeutet wird. Aber wenn wir uns die Situation im Kongo näher anschauen erkennen wir, dass dieser Konflikt sehr komplex ist und selbst wenn mensch kein Anarchist ist muss mensch sich eingestehen, dass die großen Probleme im Kongo ihre Wurzeln im kapitalistischen Weltsystem und in der Einteilung der Welt in Nationalstaaten haben, die künstlich Grenzen zwischen Menschen ziehen. ... read full story / add a comment

Todos hemos alguna vez escuchado de “La Primera Guerra Mundial Africana” [1] o “Heart of Darkness” [2], clichés occidentales usados para justificar al colonialismo y la intervención post-colonial. Todos pareciéramos saber que el conflicto en el Congo es, por una parte, sobre lo que se ha llamado “tribalismo” y, por otra, sobre la explotación de recursos minerales por parte de compañías occidentales. Pero una mirada más minuciosa nos muestra una situación mucho más compleja y aún sin ser anarquista, uno debe reconocer que la raíz de los problemas en el Congo es en realidad el capitalismo y el sistema de Estado-Nación con sus fronteras arbitrarias. ... read full story / add a comment
africa centrale / imperialismo / guerra Wednesday June 20, 2007 - 18:26 by Steffi
Il Congo, un enorme paese nel cuore dell'Africa, costituisce un altro perfetto esempio della necessità di cambiare il sistema politico attuale. Fin da quando è sotto influenze esterne, il Congo ha subito diverse forme di violenza e ne subirà altre nel futuro se non si affaccia all'orizzonte un nuovo sistema globale. Milioni di persone sono morte, ed i loro assassini, la povertà e lo sfruttamento, sono a piede libero. Nessun governo cambierà mai la situazione del popolo del Congo. ... read full story / add a comment

central africa / economy Thursday June 30, 2005 - 21:49 by Chekov
While neo-liberal reforms have certainly affected workers in the West, it is in Africa where they have had most impact. Neo-liberal policies seek to reduce state control over the national economy in favour of private capitalists - the so-called 'free market'. These policies have been most widely applied in Africa for the simple reason that they are the policies promoted by the International financial institutions (IFI's), the World Bank, IMF and WTO ... read full story / add a comment

The party system is the modern equivalent of the tribal or sectarian system. A society governed by one party is similar to one which is governed by one tribe or one sect. The party, as shown, represents the perception of a certain group of people, or the interests of one group in society, or one belief, or one region. Such a party is a minority compared with the whole people, just as the tribe and the sect are ... read full story / add a comment
