Jackals Of The African Union Denounce Haiti’s Birthright – MUST READ

AFRICANGLOBE - The African Union is a rag-thug collection of sorry, pathetic and obdurate sellouts. They deserve nothing but to be arrested, collected, hung, killed, paled, decapitated and paraded through the streets of Kumasi, through the streets of Lagos, through the streets of Nairobi as a reminder of what should happen to anyone who represents powers other than that which is African on this continent. To hell with the African Union. It has no place in Africa.

Mwalimu Julius Nyerere: A True Pan-Africanist

AFRICANGLOBE - Mwalimu Julius Nyerere was very committed to the cause of African Unity. He worked hard with other African leaders to bring the newly independent countries closer together. He was one of the founder leaders of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in May 1963.

Gathering In Brussels Undermines African Unity

AFRICANGLOBE - The EU-Africa Summit on April 2-3 in Brussels was not attended by several key African leaders from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawi and Eritrea. The European Union bypassed guidelines set down by a leading organ of the African Union, the Peace and Security Council, in convening and carrying out the summit.

A Very Sad Day For African Unity

AFRICANGLOBE - We hope the African leaders dining and wining in Europe today remember the axiom that counsels using a long spoon when supping with the devil. We salute Zimbabwe, South Africa and the Gambia for their principled stance against Europe's condescending behaviour, and extend similar regard to the leaders of the Central African Republic, Guinea Bissau, Eritrea and Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic who were either not invited or also chose to stay away.

Commemorating African Independence

AFRICANGLOBE - The BBC recently confirmed that the battalion that led the march to liberate Paris comprised a significant number of African soldiers from present day Senegal. But because de Gaulle and Eisenhower did not think that it would be right to have Black faces associated with the liberation of l'Hexagone, he replaced them with White, mostly American soldiers to create the iconic pictures that we see today.

African Unity: Dream or Reality

AFRICANGLOBE - The Africa Union is 50 years old. Hurray! In the coming days, African leaders are expected to gather in Addis Ababa. Many of them will deliver speeches upon speeches, paying respect to the founding fathers of the organisation. We will be reminded of how our forefathers fought hard to overthrow criminal colonial regimes and established the Organisation of African Unity

African Union – The Power to Resist Foreign Intervention (I)

AFRICANGLOBE - A decade ago an academic then at one of the South African Universities, Xavier Renou, wrote: "There is a permanent reluctance among academics to call a spade a spade and a predatory (or imperialist) policy as such. In the case of French Foreign policy in Africa, very few academics have pointed at its dramatic consequences, and even fewer have been prepared to describe them as resulting from deliberate criminal choices aimed at fostering a small minority's interest, at any cost."-Xavier Renou: "A Major Obstacle to African Unity: the New Franco-American Cold War on the (African) Continent", 2000?)

Africans Unite! Ethiopians Unite!

AFRICANGLOBE - The process of unifying a people is difficult and the road to unity is often littered with the debris of historical grievances, rancor and bitterness. That road must be repaved and repaired with good will and new values of dignity and equality in a genuine understanding of a common humanity. The search for and achievement of unity does not happen overnight, nor does unity by itself solve all problems. But where there is unity among the people, they are in a much better position to resolve disputes and solve problems. Where there is unity, the disagreement is never about the destination, only about the paths to be taken to that destination.
