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

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.

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.

A recent round of brutality against civilians by Camara’s junta has left Guinea on the brink of civil war, Jeggan Grey-Johnson writes in this week’s Pambazuka News. The international community must intervene, Grey-Johnson argues, as left unchecked the instability could have grave consequences, not just for Guinea but also for its neighbouring countries, many of which are ‘still recovering from the horrors of war and brutality’. ... read full story / add a comment

LA CNT se porte aux côtés des travailleurs en lutte de l’Huilerie cotonnière du Mali (HUICOMA).

En raison de la fermeture de cette société qui assurait la production d’huile de coton et de tourteaux destinés à l’alimentation du bétail à partir des graines dans plusieurs usines du pays, les travailleurs de HUICOMA ont décidé d’organiser le 10 novembre 2009 un sit-in illimité à la Bourse de travail de Bamako pour une fois de plus tenter de se faire entendre par les autorités maliennes et expliquer à l’opinion nationale et internationale la situation scandaleuse. ... read full story / add a comment

El sabor amargo de uno de los manjares más codiciados de todos los tiempos: el chocolate. La cosecha de cacao en Costa de Marfil, la pobreza extrema de ese pueblo explotado, el trabajo infantil que en buena parte genera la inmensa riqueza que obtienen las transnacionales del chocolate, y la voluntad de un niño que no puede volver a la escuela ni escapar a su suerte. Un retrato de un mundo que debemos cambiar.
