Individual versus community?


The myth of individualism, expression of a legitimate quest for freedom after centuries of oppression and exploitation of the individual by the monarchs, the serfs and the Church. This quest for freedom manifested itself by an ardent desire of individual independence and emancipation of the bonds of traditional solidarity, mainly by the assertion of a liberation of man towards God.

But unfortunately, everything leads us to believe, that humans don't freed himself from the divine law, only to fall in the more subtle snares of human law which, thanks to powerful means of persuasion, does that protect and perpetuate the conditions of enrichment of the richest thus reducing the "freedom" of the individual freedom to produce to consume.

In their willingness to dismiss us out of the paths of human history and to highlight the exceptional nature of the Europeans, many ethnologists would have us believe that one of the major differences of modern Western societies from our so-called primitive societies was on the place of the individual. That the role of the individual appears as one of the most fundamental variables. That our societies, valuing the individual, thus étoufferaient all sense of responsibility, of independence and ability to innovate; which would be at the origin of the lethargy of the African continent.

Nothing fake, consider that African cultures generally do not value the individual and not not encourage the independence and development of individuality, or that the individual would be more free in the West.

In all societies, the individual must account for its actions and to submit to a higher authority which organizes and fixed by laws, the limits of his freedom.

Any society to maintain social balance, limit individual liberties, according to the objectives that it deems consistent with the values that it cherishes.

In Africa, as in Europe, the community through public power, intervenes and frames in life, the education of the individual. It's not only in Africa "that it needs a whole village to raise a child. It is also the case in Europe, only the modalities of interventions differ. Where the child is not subject to the control of close neighbors, social services and judicial institutions undertake and often make decisions that no neighbors in Africa could afford, such as removing the custody of a child to his family place in specialized institutions. - Africa, the call of honor p.96 - book excerpt

For a stand up Africa
Speech, Ideologies and resistance

Fourth and final part)


It is because we let others define the world that our intellectual adventure has been so marked; that we have been kept, the nose in our different specialties and functions. Which, such blinkered, prevented us from looking up to see the general panorama of our condition. It is how we can hear some, talk of the recolonization of Africa, as if it had stopped. Is neocolonialism a hollow Word without reality? Isn't it not demonstrate extreme naivety, that to believe that, because the Wolf put a coat of lamb, we can now lower our guard, to fully trust him, and walk hand in hand towards a future with him, "equality, peace and justice." .

If we lift the head to think for ourselves, we would see how the past of five centuries of servitude, continues to shape our present. We would see that it is the continuity of physical and mental colonization that perpetuate poverty, conflicts around relationships of subjection political, intellectual and economic exploitation.

The effectiveness of the mechanisms of these oppressive relationships, is based on their invisibility1, the intelligence of our intellectuals, should not be to unveil them and call to fight them?
This is because we have been taught that slavery was confined to the Atlantic slave trade, we struggle to get used to the idea that slavery was not only happening in the plantations of America and the Caribbean, but also, on the continent, in the extensive plantations of rubber trees, cotton and it continues today, in the diamond mines, uranium, coltan, etc. If slavery out of the continent has been tragic, one on the continent was also equally. On the continent, Africans were undergoing torture, genocide, and experienced arbitrary imprisonment to supply "the army of the"convicts", 'work, to the benefit of the colonizers'.

For a stand up Africa
Speech, Ideologies and resistance

Third part)


"Activist neutrality" of many "intellectuals" African, is one of the clearest signs of torpor in Africa especially in the francophone space. Their academic work is very little oriented resolution many challenges that arise in their companies, to conduct the necessary transformations. Many of them, will often hide behind their functions, to shirk their human responsibilities.

Réseau International de Solidarité et d’Echanges pour l’Unité Panafricaine : R.I.S.E. - U.P.


Considérant que les Africains partagent une condition commune, qui se traduit au niveau de la diaspora, par leur marginalisation et leur relégation au statut de citoyens de second rang, du fait de politiques racistes et discriminatoires institutionnalisées, et leur enfermement sur leur propre continent dans les serres de la grande pauvreté, conséquences des effets dévastateurs des politiques impérialistes.

Devant le constat, qu’après plus d’un demi siècle de pseudo indépendances, nos pays demeurent, dans leur majorité, des Etats-vassaux, dirigés par des agents de la domination néocoloniale et servent des intérêts étrangers.

Cette classe politique qui a pris en otage l’expression de la volonté souveraine de nos peuples, a instauré un système basé sur la corruption, le clientélisme, dont l’objectif est de maintenir les Africains dans la servilité, par l’organisation du pillage systémique de nos ressources naturelles, le contrôle de nos économies par des capitaux étrangers à travers l’endettement excessif et inapproprié et la dépendance.

Cette situation est responsable de la précarisation des travailleurs, des paysans, des artisans, des populations urbaines, de la croissance des inégalités, de l’ampleur du chômage des jeunes, de la paupérisation des retraités.

Small axe interface


To promote our ideas on the model of economic development, we have a structure:
"Small axis Interface.

"Small axis Interface" is designed to serve as a crossroads between different cultural and economic actors of the Diaspora and the continent; with the goal, to make its modest contribution to allow the emergence of a modern and efficient economic fabric, trying to turn the social challenges into economic opportunities.


"Small Axe" interface to institutional, economic and cultural agents: tips, training and events.

It operates by combining social and economic objectives. It has therefore a voluntary and an entrepreneurial component.

  • Initiating actions to support the efforts of local development undertaken by local authorities in several areas including the economy, education, culture.
Entrepreneurial

  • Participate in creating jobs across the Organization and modernization of the economic and trade circuit inside.


General objectives

  • Valuation of cultural and natural and local heritage,
  • Independence and the social and professional integration of young people,
  • Reinvigorate village communities, in accompanying them in their attempts to gain more autonomy in the management and development of their communities,
  • Capacity building of artisans by support in their working methods, training in the management of their activities,
