Forty-two years after the adoption of the Buenos Aires Plan of action for promoting and implementing technical cooperation among countries of the global south, some progress has been made, but there is so much that needs to be done, especially in Africa. Historically, the global south has been the source for most of the resources and materials that have been used to develop and sustain the economies of the industrialized global north. The consequence of this being the global south remaining in an underdeveloped or developing state, while societal benefits go almost exclusively to countries in the northern hemisphere. Forty-two . . .

The western media will tell us this type of terrorism is the face of terror in Africa- what Africans must fear. The fact the bomb goes off leaving the home of Al Shabaab only builds on the narrative that groups such . . .
By Mark P Fancher Originally Posted in Black Agenda Report Republished in solidarity with National Day of Action to #ShutDownAFRICOM Africans have flooded into the streets of Britain, Germany, Brazil, France and many other countries, not only in solidarity, but also as part of their own resistance. It can’t be said that the thousands of fist-waving, mask-wearing, hard-marching Africans in North American streets are all dressed up with no place to go. We can say that many don’t know where they are going. After nearly two weeks of rage-filled street manifestations triggered by the cold-blooded, racist murder of George Floyd, . . .
Black Alliance For Peace Africa can’t demonstrate independence and power because the entire continent has a giant U.S. military boot on its neck. With reports each week of yet another Black victim of police violence, there is for many an ever-growing desperation. As activists search for a way forward, Africa’s plight does not find its way on to the movement agenda. But there is good reason to be concerned about what goes on in Africa. The problems there and the problems here are related. Africa has long been the focus of foreign exploitation of the continent’s land, resources, and people. . . .

Original Piece from our Comrades at Black Agenda Report. The US waged unprovoked war against Libya and has militarily occupied Africa, but is still singing its old song that Russia is the aggressor on the continent. Despite its diminishing global heft, the US remains a superpower of hypocrisy. These days when it comes to Russia one can get a case study on US imperialism simply by inversing the accusations Washington levels against that country. The real Russiagate was perpetrated by Bill Clinton in1996 when the US financed the reelection of Russian President Boris Yeltsin. US government and corporate media rail . . .
