UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business

UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business

 

Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.

Last year, Director of the Global Justice Now Nick Dearden said:

It’s scandalous that UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business. This is the exact opposite of what is needed, which is support to small-scale farmers and fairer distribution of land and resources to give African countries more control over their food systems. Africa can produce enough food to feed its people. The problem is that our food system is geared to the luxury tastes of the richest, not the needs of ordinary people. Here the British government is using aid money to make the problem even worse.”

Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Benin, Malawi and Senegal are all involved in the New Alliance.

In a January 2015 piece in The Guardian, Dearden continued by saying that development was once regarded as a process of breaking with colonial exploitation and transferring power over resources from the ‘first’ to the ‘third world’, involving a revolutionary struggle over the world’s resources. However, the current paradigm is based on the assumption that developing countries need to adopt neo-liberal policies and that public money in the guise of aid should facilitate this. The notion of ‘development’ has become hijacked by rich corporations and the concept of poverty depoliticised and separated from structurally embedded power relations.

To see this in action, we need look no further to a conference held on Monday 23 March in London, organised by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This secretive, invitation-only meeting with aid donors and big seed companies discussed a strategy to make it easier for these companies to sell patented seeds in Africa and thus increase corporate control of seeds.

Farmers have for generations been saving and exchanging seeds among themselves. This has allowed them a certain degree of independence and has enabled them to innovate, maintain biodiversity, adapt seeds to climatic conditions and fend off plant disease. Big seed companies with help from the Gates Foundation, the US government and other aid donors are now discussing ways to increase their market penetration of commercial seeds by displacing farmers own seed systems.

Corporate sold hybrid seeds often produce higher yields when first planted, but the second generation seeds produce low yields and unpredictable crop traits, making them unsuitable for saving and storing. As Heidi Chow from Global Justice Now rightly says, instead of saving seeds from their own crops, farmers who use hybrid seeds become completely dependent on the seed, fertiliser and pesticide companies, which can (and has) in turn result in an agrarian crisis centred on debt, environmental damage and health problems.

The London conference aimed to share findings of a report by Monitor Deloitte on developing the commercial seed sector in sub-Saharan Africa. The report recommends that in countries where farmers are using their own seed saving networks NGOs and aid donors should encourage governments to introduce intellectual property rights for seed breeders and help to persuade farmers to buy commercial, patented seeds rather than relying on their own traditional varieties. The report also suggests that governments should remove regulations so that the seed sector is opened up to the global market.

The guest list comprised corporations, development agencies and aid donors, including Syngenta, the World Bank and the Gates Foundation. It speaks volumes that not one farmer organisation was invited. Farmers have been imbued with the spirit of entrepreneurship for thousands of years. They have been “scientists, innovators, natural resource stewards, seed savers and hybridisation experts” who have increasingly been reduced to becoming recipients of technical fixes and consumers of poisonous products of a growing agricultural inputs industry. So who better than to discuss issues concerning agriculture?

But the whole point of such a conference is that the West regards African agriculture as a ‘business opportunity’, albeit wrapped up in warm-sounding notions of ‘feeding Africa’ or ‘lifting millions out of poverty’. The West’s legacy in Africa (and elsewhere) has been to plunge millions into poverty. Enforcing structural reforms to benefit big agribusiness and its unsustainable toxic GMO/petrochemical inputs represents a continuation of the neo-colonialist plundering of Africa. The US has for many decades been using agriculture as a key part of foreign policy to secure global hegemony.

Phil Bereano, food sovereignty campaigner with AGRA Watch and an Emeritus Professor at the University of Washington says:

“This is an extension of what the Gates Foundation has been doing for several years – working with the US government and agribusiness giants like Monsanto to corporatize Africa’s genetic riches for the benefit of outsiders. Don’t Bill and Melinda realize that such colonialism is no longer in fashion? It’s time to support African farmers’ self-determination.”

Bereano also shows how Western corporations only intend to cherry-pick the most profitable aspects of the food production chain, while leaving the public sector in Africa to pick up the tab for the non-profitable aspects that allow profitability further along the chain.

Giant agritech corporations with their patented seeds and associated chemical inputs are ensuring a shift away from diversified agriculture that guarantees balanced local food production, the protection of people’s livelihoods and agricultural sustainability. African agriculture is being placed in the hands of big agritech for private profit under the pretext of helping the poor. The Gates Foundation has substantial shares in Monsanto. With Monsanto’s active backing from the US State Department and the Gates Foundation’s links with USAID, African farmers face a formidable force.

Report after report suggests that support for conventional agriculture, agroecology and local economies is required, especially in the Global South. Instead, Western governments are supporting powerful corporations with taxpayers money whose thrust via the WTO, World Bank and IMF has been to encourage strings-attached loans, monocrop cultivation for export using corporate seeds, the restructuring of economies, the opening of economies to the vagaries of land and commodity speculation and a system of globalised trade rigged in favour of the West.

In this vision for Africa, those farmers who are regarded as having any role to play in all of this are viewed only as passive consumers of corporate seeds and agendas. The future of Africa is once again being decided by rich men in London

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quo Vadis Libya?


Quo Vadis Libya?

On the Heinous Deeds that US Interventionism Brought upon Libya and upon Libyan Women in Ousting and Murdering Qaddafi

By Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu

The late Col. Muammar Qaddafi, hailed as the “Great Leader” by the Libyan people during his incumbency, was murdered by Chad, Somali and Sudanese mercenaries in collusion with NATO and US invading forces on October 19, 2011. Qaddafi’s Libya, two years before he was ousted and assassinated was considered as one of Africa’s greatest nations.

Prof. Garikai Chengu a scholar of Middle East affairs in Harvard University wrote: In 1967, Colonel Qaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa; however, by the time he was assassinated, Qaddafi had turned Libya into Africa’s wealthiest nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy on the African continent. Less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands.”

But look at what happened to Libya now after the US/NATO interventionism! It is now in complete political anarchy, with a destroyed economy and its society is war torn and in full shambles. Presently, we cannot call Libya a State for after US/NATO armed intervention and regime change, all the Libyan villages are now run by the various tribes that was once united by Qaddafi. Libya is in the state of civil war showing the inevitability of what Hobbes called “the ugly, brutish, nasty, short state of nature” characterizing lawlessness.

In this post-Qaddafi Libya, the anarchic and lawless militias are wrecking havoc in different parts of the country—each fighting each other for supremacy. The so-called “Islamist” Jemaah-Islamiyya and ISIS forces are also staking out their fortune in the once secular and progressive socialist Libya.

Libya is now a stateless anarchy since various tribes and militias are declaring their own sort-of states in various parts of the country. NATO interventionism and US Hegemony has totally wrecked Libya and their so-called “Arab Spring” turned out as hell-hole of internecine, civil, regional and tribal wars in that side of the Middle East instead of exporting its so-called “democracy” to Libyan soil.

USA has been scheming for over four decades to topple Qaddafi because he never allowed US and the First World countries allied by US and Britain to dictate on the Libyan oil policy program nor did he allow the IMF-WB to wreck havoc in the economy of the country by not subscribing to its capitalistic financing and loan programs. Likewise, socialist Libya under the leadership of Qaddafi was a great supporter of the Non-Aligned Movement which detested foreign interventionism of superpowers in the affairs of the Third World countries.

He was a zealous supporter of Nelson Mandela’s ANC, the anti-apartheid, anti-racism socialist rebels in South Africa, while US and UK had been long supporters of Johannesburg apartheid regime—up until the time in the early 80’s when US/UK realized that the South African apartheid regime was already tottering apart, hence they belatedly withdraw support to the apartheid government.

Qaddafi’s Green Socialism strengthened economy by land distribution, free housing, free hospitalization, free education and profit-sharing of the nationalized oil industry and other State corporations to all Libyan citizens including the desert Bedouins

(See, Prof. Jaime Ramirez, “Qathafi: Assessment of Libyan Green Socialism”, pp. 18-29).

As of this juncture, it is beneficial to quote Prof. Garikai Chengu: Under Qaddafis rule, Libyans enjoyed not only free health-care and free education, but also free electricity and interest-free loans. Now thanks to NATO’s intervention, the health-care sector is on the verge of collapse as thousands of Filipino health workers flee the country, institutions of higher education across the East of the country are shut down, and black outs are a common occurrence in once thriving Tripoli.”

In many of his speeches, Qaddafi declared himself both as Islamic socialist and Islamic feminist—whatever and however those terms mean to him from the point of view of strict political theoretic. But one thing is very clear, from the point of political praxis, he practically endeavored to apply what he understood of socialism and most importantly of feminism, by way of State policies, in his public gestures: examples in his private life and in his government projects.

Again, let us hear it from the Harvard scholar of Middle East Affairs, Prof. Garikai Chengu: Even the United Nations Human Rights Council praised Qaddafi for his promotion of women’s rights. When the colonel seized power in 1969, few women went to university. Today, more than half of Libya’s university students are women. One of the first laws Qaddafi passed in 1970 was an equal pay for equal work law”.

In Libya, during Qaddafi’s rule, all women share the same rights as men and in fact, women are even preferred to men when it comes to access of education to State Universities and priority access of work opportunities in Libyan government corporations and institutions.

In 2007, women students in the University of Tripoli, University of Sirte and University of Cyrene bypassed the population of men students. In Libya, a woman can divorce her husband, demand for equal work-equal pay scheme with that of men, and husbands are given paternity leaves so that they can help their wives (likewise given maternity leaves) in taking care of their infant during the first three months after birth (Cf., Samuel Gurung, “Libyan Socialist Feminism under Colonel Qaddafi: Cases and Good Practices for Emulation to the Present Nepalese Government”, pp. 12-23).

It is no wonder that when NATO and US bombed Libya and the mercenaries financed by America eventually ousted Qaddafi and even mercilessly murdered him and his family, the sector that has suffered terribly from this interventionism was Libya’s womenry! As of the present, the anarchic and chaotic mini-tribal regimes ruling in every province in Libya are bent on subordinating women and denying them their rights. These anarchic tribes as well as the so-called extremist and resurgent “Islamist” militias allied with JI and ISIL see women empowerment as an aberration and are therefore bent on denying women their rights and freedoms. By removing Qaddafi, US hegemony has effectively turned back the struggle for gender equality and gender empowerment in Libya back to square one!

What did US hegemony achieve when it wrecked havoc on Libya by ousting Qaddafi?

Thanks to US interventionism, Libya from a progressive secularist and relatively economically well-off socialist country in North Africa has now become a putrid piece of cake to be cruelly subdivided by extremist terrorists, unruly tribes, armed bandits and undisciplined armed extremist sects—each militias of these armed sectors are presently wrecking havoc to the entire breadth and length of Libya, continuing their looting, raping, pillage and murder of civilians.

And yet America has never lifted a finger to intervene in this barbaric, anarchic and chaotic affair which it has caused in the first place! NATO bragged that the mission in Libya had been “one of the most successful in NATO history.”

Truth is, Western interventions have produced nothing but colossal failures in present Libya, Iraq, and Syria. Lest we forget, prior to western military involvement in these three nations, they were the most modern and secular states in the Middle East and North Africa—these three socialist and Islamic countries had fully subscribed to the recognition of women’s rights and they had relatively high standards of living in both Middle East and North African regions.

According to Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, the Arab Spring is actually not about initiating democracy in the Middle East, but it is all about petro-business and war-business. It is all about creating a situation where the Trans-Central Asian Afghan and Middle East Pipelines are easily facilitated throughout the whole breadth and length of the Middle East to the Caspian Sea up till Central Asia. Therefore, the US War on Terror—including its interventionism and bloody regime in Libya—is all about capitalist business and imperialist hegemony at their worst (See Michel Chossudovsky’s book “America’s War on Terrorism”, specifically chapter 5, ‘War and the Hidden Agenda’ and chapter 6, ‘Trans-Afghan Pipeline’; pp. 65-91).

Therefore, it is neither Libya nor the Middle Eastern countries, but it is the US corporatist military weapon producing mafia cliques that will truly benefit from this Arab Spring and destructive so-called “War on Terror” that US is waging against the Middle East and the Third World countries.

The so-called “Arab Spring” and the “US War on Terror” are all about US Hegemony, US/NATO Interventionism, Middle East-Central Asian Pipelines and the Military Industrial Complex from the start to finish, and this US interventionism is NEVER about democracy, NEVER about freedom nor for “just war”! These are all done for the selfish interest of US Hegemony! And at whose expense? It is always at the expense of the lives, limbs and properties of the oppressed and exploited peoples of the Middle East and the Third World!

OPPRESSED PEOPLES OF THE WORLD, UNITE! DOWN WITH ALL FORMS OF NEO-COLONIALISM, CAPITALISM AND IMPERIALISM!

Painful words ..


Painful words ..

I picked up this through the social media reading the words stubbed my heart and made it bleed, it’s a free translation so that you can read it and understand how the 90% of the Libyan people feel and mourn our loss of Freedom, Independence, Pride and our kind of Social Democracy that the Western White Supremacy Beasts did not like and had to destroy. How dare we North Africans be independent, enjoy our freedom, health, education, high standard of living and have so many resources that were free for us; how dare we half-blacks have so much money and the Western Elitists can not steal and rape that is what they are good for so they had to destroy Libya and bring it to its knees. Here is the free translation I apologize some words can not be translated to English.

Libya in February objectives achieved by the people stunned the world and make it a wonder
For this great nation ..
Nearly two million displaced abroad .. more than a quarter of a million displaced people inside
More than 30 000 victims .. the number of detainees exceeded 20 000 of them women
And the elderly, the infirm and children.
Number of disabled almost 5 thousand .. burning, destruction and theft of nearly a quarter of a million
HOME .. in destruction and burning of hundreds of thousands of public institutions
And private cars, machinery and agricultural projects and land. And what has been the most important
Burned airport and oil tanks in the capital and the burning and destruction of Sidra oil tanks
The seizure of public and private property and tampering and destruction of many of them.
Drain hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue and assets and savings
Provided and foreign investments .. the return of thousands on mission
Study .. corruption wounded and expenses billions file .. Unfortunately, in
It Stationery government nutria reached 5 billion dinars, only to change.
And much more, such as low dinar exchange rate against other currencies
The destruction of the national economy, reduce the amount of oil and gas exports, the high cost of
Price, the absence of some essential commodities, lack of money banks
And the scarcity of the presence of a lot of the basics such as fuel and cooking gas and bread
And power outages for long hours.
And most of all to secu- nor Aman no stability .. and painful absence thousands
Pupils and students from their classrooms and school halls. Very painful and very
Is an honor free which violates the prisons, and the work of Libyan women in
Diaspora as maids and bedrooms of many families and the Libyan families in graves
And tin houses.

O Lord of the Worlds tuff homeland and my family and Omhata and sisters and daughters
Especially displaced and displaced and uprooted from their homes and detention centers in
Prisons and bereaved widows and orphans.

I say here with my tears and sorrow and Djaa ..
Fleihkmena most notorious tyrants and mighty and my family, and he does not accidental and ceremonial
All of this.

IF YOU WANT TO BOMB A COUNTRY AND RE-INVADE IT THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO


IF YOU WANT TO BOMB A COUNTRY AND RE-INVADE IT THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO

1. You have to make a plan to get rid of the government, you do that by Demonizing the government through the media who are the lap-dogs of the West-Zionists. The media do not care that it does not publish the truth, the journalists do not care that they have blood on their hands as long as their Bank Accounts are getting filled with millions.

2. You plant some snipers, spooks and you do a covert operation like a demonstration, you have placed the snipers on the roofs and they start shooting at the demonstrators – you have organized the media to be there so that they can take live feed and spread the lie through the media a picture a thousand words. You get some secret agents and some outside contractors to flood the social media with pictures and videos demonizing the government.

***(Does that remind you of a movie? It’s not this is reality)

3. You go to the UN and ask for a mandate, that the government has to be ousted because it will kill its own people. ***(It seems that while America has killed its own people  other governments will do the same.)

4. Once you get the OK from the UN then you call in the big guns NATO, its orders is to bomb the country to shambles while at the same time you organize all the scums of the earth to go to that country Under the Mask of FREEDOM FIGHTERS(FF). These FF have been financed and trained by contractors of the west, so that they can show to all of us idiots that they country really has a problem and these FF will free the country and bring DEMOCRACY!!!

5. Once the NATO has bombed all the infrastructure of the country killed thousand innocent people, freed all the psychopaths, murderers, rapists from jail and they let them loose always masked as FF to roam the streets and they start killing, rapping, kidnapping innocent civilians and they call it a civil war……

6. They go back to the UN and ask for this country to have an extended embargo and no fly zone so that any government that comes to power can not restrain these psychopaths and to keep the fighting going on. So that the civilians when the time is right they will accept anything the WESTERN POWERS OFFER so that they can have some peace, quiet and security. In the mean time the country is completely destroyed easily to loot all the resources of the country. Entering the IMF which of course if anyone knows that once you enter the IMF you never get out. So once a sovereign country;  becomes enslaved by the West and it will be divided into 3 pieces.

7. Wait there is more… sometimes the 1st plan does not go the way the Westerners had planned so they have to come up with plan B.

8. Plan B is so twisted that only barbarians could think of it. They collected the best behavior prisoners from GITMO and other black operated prisons, showered them, dressed them in black with black masks but unfortunately they were not enough so some Europeans, Americans, Australians, Canadians, Africans, Middle Easterners and Israelite  who played video war-games and now they are going to play in real life were collected. They were well-trained in a hidden base in Jordan they are being payed from $600 to $1000 monthly and have the best gadgets with them from American jeeps which are not exported and some how these terrorist have them, the latest rifles, guns and American knives known to be used by SAS troops. ****(Still you think you are watching a movie? Here comes the reality check…)

9. The countries I am talking about are: Lebanon totally destroyed, Yugoslavia now balkanized and divided because of it’s resources, Afghanistan totally destroyed their the excuse was to get rid of the Soviet Union, but in reality it was the CIA drug cartel and America’s CIA created the Al Qaeda group with Bin Laden, Yemen for the same reason drugs, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Iraq for its oil and other resources, Libya for oil, water and other resources, Syria for the same reason with Iraq and Libya, Sudan for oil and it’s divided, Somalia, Horn of Africa, Latin America has also some horror stories, Vietnam and Korea also have their horror stories and the list can go for ever….

10. America together with Israel are destroying Europe in a very different war an economic war which is worse as the Europeans can not see the enemy. Very soon Europe will have to enter the war as so many immigrants from war zones are flooding their country and there are not enough supplies to maintain them thus the rise of the fascist parties. Coincidence you say? I don’t think so, everything is planned.

So now we have in the one hand the European psychopaths Fascists and on the other hand the psychopaths who call themselves ISIS OR ISIL. These nice people in the last few months they have made so many atrocities that even Pinochet would have not dared to do. But America and Israel sit silently and do nothing they have not gone to the UN and to get a mandate to bomb them, on the contrary both countries are  trying to persuade their senates to grant them money so that they can continue to finance them and to keep on beheading Muslims, Christians and anything that has two legs but first they need to rape their victims – that’s how demented they are….. on your TV sets both governments say we are bombing them but they are bombing empty buildings. Isis, Al Qaeda, Daash, Nusra and other extreme entities are the cheap labor and expendable instead of using their own Armies. Had they use their own army they would have a riot in their countries.

So lets see why Libya will be invaded again, Isis has executed Egyptian Copts, from RT here is what they write:

Islamic State militants have released a new graphic video showing what they claim are the executions of 21 Egyptian Copts kidnapped in Libya. The video was published on the Twitter account of a website that supports the jihadists.

The Copts – native Christians of Egypt – are shown in the video dressed in orange jumpsuits with their hands tied behind their backs, while being walked along the seaside by jihadists dressed in black. The Egyptian men are then forced to kneel before being beheaded.

Several very graphic images of the killings appeared on Twitter. RT will not run the images, believing it is unethical to publish the footage or pictures of atrocities committed by terrorists even if they cannot be immediately verified.

A caption on the five-minute video read: “The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church.”

Before the killings, one of the militants stood with a knife in his hand and said: “Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.”

ISIS = WESTERNERS HIDING UNDER THEIR MASKS

ISIS = WESTERNERS HIDING UNDER THEIR MASKS

ISIS ACTIVITIES IN LIBYA

 At the very least, ISIS has left its footprints in Benghazi, Sirte, Tripoli, and portions of southern Libya. The group has broadcast very little from its media office for “Fezzan Province,” though it did claim responsibility for the January 3 attack on a Libyan army checkpoint outside of Soukna that left over ten soldiers dead. ISIS media offices for Barqa and Tripolitania are much more active in broadcasting “soft” activities such as hisba 

(religious accountability) and dawa 
 (proselytizing), in tandem with “hard” security- and violence-related content. In Barqa, ISIS activities extend far beyond what has been written on Derna. The group has publicized hisba 
 activities such as burning cigarette cartons; destroying waterpipes used for smoking; demolishing “polytheistic” statues and shrines
and persuading Muslims in open-air markets to leave their commercial activities and join them at the mosque
 (more coercive measures are used in Syria and Iraq). Its
dawa  activities have included distributing “medical guidance” in Cyrenaica, general aid to the needy,  and sweets and gifts to children in Benghazi. “Harder” ISIS activities in Barqa have included the execution of two Tunisian  journalists, street fighting in Benghazi, and gunfights, rocket fire, and guerrilla activities in Ain Mara.
 In addition to targeting General Haftar and his forces, ISIS counterpropaganda also singles out the Sahwat (Awakening), a group of irregular forces fighting alongside Operation Dignity who are named after the Sunni tribal “awakening” against al-Qaeda in Anbar, Iraq, where ISIS has its roots. The Libyan Sahwat were likely organized as a parallel counterinsurgency force for Operation Dignity after ASL and its allies routed Haftar from Benghazi in July 2014; they became well-known during the October counteroffensive.
 ISIS photo essays have since attempted to blame Benghazi’s destruction on Haftar and the Sahwat, whom the jihadist  writer Moaz Abu al-Barqawi (i.e., “of Barqa“) described as an “awakening of apostasy.”
 In Tripoli, ISIS has benefited from the relative calm to conduct more relaxed dawa  activities such as “meet and greets”
 and distributions of cash and clothing. But the most immediate threat to Tripoli’s calm is ISIS itself: the group has claimed credit for a spate of attacks targeting foreign symbols, including a diplomatic security building, the Algerian embassy, and the Corinthia Hotel. Reports of gun battles against Islamist.
With all that said its 99.9% that the Western Allies will intervene for a second time with the excuse to help the civilians.
