Racism, Oppression and Anti-Racist Struggle
(1st party)


Because of its central place in the struggle of the African Diaspora throughout the world, racism is a phenomenon that deserves special attention.

Racism towards African populations, especially the one that has been the subject of intellectual construction since slavery, has produced an abundant literature.
It is this literature which continues to nourish the prejudices and stereotypes present in almost all written or oral narratives in the West and which profoundly affect the lives of Africans for several centuries.

The means and methods used to combat it depend very much on our understanding of this phenomenon.

Racism, Oppression and Anti-Racist Struggle
(End)


Racism does not belong to the past and does not concern only the so-called immigrant populations. It is an ideology designed to legitimize the enslavement of populations that lived outside European borders and which still continues today to govern relations with them. The prejudices that determine the nature of these relationships, in which the "Other" occupies a lower place on the scale of humanity, are culturally defined from an early age, in order to build up the foundations for continuing impose politically and thus validate them socially.





Thinking about the incoherences of African militancy


The redeployment of armed troops from the Western powers to African soil, the partition of Sudan, attacks on Libya, Côte d'Ivoire, the troubles of the Central African Republic and Nigeria, and the long agony of the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo, are signs that real threats are plaguing the continent; that colonial relations have remained intact between the West and Africa. 

The passivity of Africans in the face of so many threats to the territorial integrity of their continent and their freedoms is disturbing.

If the reasons for this passivity can be multiple, we believe that the absence of ideological weapons capable of tempering school indoctrination and media propaganda plays an important role in our inability to detect the fragility of our condition.

Get Out Of The Torpedo

The recent attack in Cote d'Ivoire is one more event that adds to the long list of plagues that are shaking the African continent. The multiplication of hotbeds of tension should attract more attention, especially in a continent strongly marked by the fragility of the state.

This situation is characterized by the weakness of a State apparatus without any real anchoring to society and without subsistence, because, owing to the domination which it is supposed to perpetuate, it derives its legitimacy and resources from its conquerors.

This impotence is found in local governance, where local authorities are also under the yoke of the actors of the international community who can intervene at this level to structure local politics by circumventing the central power within the framework of decentralized cooperation.

The agenda of the national and local policy of our countries is mainly defined by foreign forces.

Emigration and Immigration Issues

The situation of extreme economic, social and political fragility of the continent has made the terrain much more conducive to economic predation and exposed the population more to the violence of oppression. The exploitation of natural resources and the violent conflicts between Western powers on African soil during the so-called "Cold War" period have led to numerous displacements, both inside and outside the continent.

To these movements generated by the war, were added those populations subjected to the arbitrariness of the powerful, who will move villages for the purpose of building dams, often without major impact on the local economy, or simply displaced when their neighborhoods interest real estate developers, etc.

Whole populations will be forced to abandon the land of their ancestors, which has become unbearable due to pollution caused by mining and oil.

Thus the causes of emigration are often the consequences of exploitation, oppression, impoverishment and environmental degradation, which will push people on the road to exile.

The Path Of Humility Could Be Achieved


Those who, tomorrow, could constitute the real elites of our countries, may be begging in the streets of our capitals today, exposed to risks that can destroy them irreversibly.

The lack of support and supervision of education and socialization systems can lead to considerable damage. This lack of supervision is for many, at the origin of the problem of children "talibés" in Senegal.

The problem of street children in general can not be isolated from the evils that affect all sectors of our societies. We can not continue to tackle the symptoms without stopping to reflect on the real causes that are at the origin of the tribulations that our continent is going through.

Save The Planet
Yes, But How?


Africa must be at the forefront of the fight to save the planet by proposing a viable economic vision.


"COP 21" was once again the occasion of a great international mass which ended on an impression of already seen. And as always with regard to Africa, it is up to the "international community" to decide the direction of its economic policy by means of promises which, even if they are kept, will only perpetuate the domination of the continent by innovative methods of enrichment for green investors and new sources of income for begging technocrats, defenders of the lifelong enslavement of their people through indebtedness.

How is the Negative Picture of Africa Constructed?



We thought it would be interesting to look at the actions and especially the media narrations on the African continent, narratives produced by the various participants, journalists experts, members of non-governmental organizations and humanitarian associations and their African collaborators. It will soon be realized that these discourses follow an almost constant logic. Their substance has changed little since the 19th century. They are part of a logic of disinformation or simply of occultation of the exploitative enterprises of the peoples presented as being responsible for their misery.


Through this section, we hope to explore the sneaky mechanisms of oppression in Africa, through the seemingly innocuous and innocuous actions.

Senegal, A Model of Democracy Or ....

20 March 2017, Senegal plans to hold a referendum on a draft constitutional reform. This is an opportunity for us to denounce the gross farce to which African leaders have accustomed us since the African independence; namely the art of changing everything around us so that the status quo remains.
