west africa / imperialism / war Tuesday January 22, 2013 - 19:22 byFilistina   image 2 images
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

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

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.

west africa / imperialism / war Friday April 20, 2012 - 18:55 byMichael Schmidt   image 1 image
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.

afrique de l'ouest / impérialisme / guerre Wednesday June 22, 2011 - 18:28 byPascal   image 1 image
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

le fmi a adressé récemment ses félicitations à l'état sénégalais. Après la carotte, le baton : l'institution basée aux états-unis demande désormais au Sénégal d'ouvrir ses frontières aux huiles raffinées d'importation. Avec en ligne d'horizon la mort de la filière arachidière au Sénégal, tant pour les ouvriers de la transformation que pour les paysans ... read full story / add a comment
west africa / economy Tuesday August 16, 2005 - 18:11 byAnarcho
Niger is the second poorest country in the world. Markets in some parts of the country are still full of produce. Yet a few minutes drive from these is the face of Niger which the world has seen -- starving people under canvas tents with aid workers trying their best to help them. The reason is simple -- poverty. People cannot afford to buy the goods in the market and so they go hungry. This, the bleak reality of Niger's famine, is noticeably absent from almost all of the media reports ... read full story / add a comment
west africa / anarchist movement Wednesday July 06, 2005 - 15:03 byChekov
There is always a temptation to welcome any well-intentioned efforts to make the world a better place and those who concentrate on criticising others' efforts to improve the world can find themselves being easily dismissed as cynics, knockers and “nay-sayers”. Thus, although large numbers of people probably found the idea of a movement against poverty and for social justice being fronted by some of the richest people on earth (Bono and Bill Gates to name but two) to be a little bit odd, most people acknowledged that they were 'at least doing something' and thus should be supported. However, it is important to ask ourselves what they were actually calling for and whether that was a good thing in itself. ... read full story / add a comment

Il NEPAD (New Partnership for Africa's Development), adottato dall'Unione Africana ad Abuja in Nigeria nell'ottobre del 2001, non è niente di più e niente di meno che un piano neoliberista delle elites africane in combutta con le multinazionali, il FMI e la BM al fine di saccheggiare risorse e lavoratori dell'Africa. Si tratta del consolidamento in Africa dell'attuale stato di cambiamenti neoliberisti operati da quella variegata ciurma di ceti dominanti africani, fatta di dittatori, capi militari, capitalisti. ... read full story / add a comment

The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), adopted by the African Union in Abuja, Nigeria, in October 2001, is nothing more and nothing less than a neo-liberal plan by Africa's elite to join with multi-national corporations, the IMF and World Bank to plunder Africa's labour force and resources. It is a consolidation of a range of a neo-liberal shifts by Africa's motley crew of ruling dictators, military chiefs, and capitalists. ... read full story / add a comment
