          PORTUGAL À SOMBRA DE AMBIGUIDADES AINDA NÃO ULTRAPASSADAS – VIII   



Em saudação aos 60 anos do MPLA, aos 52 anos da passagem do Che por África e aos 43 anos do 25 de Abril… e assinalando os 50 anos do início do “Exercício ALCORA” e os 50 anos do início da Guerra do Biafra.

15- O fascismo e colonialismo do Estado Novo, em função dos problemas que criou, tornou-se praticamente indigente no que ao armamento e equipamento militar dizia respeito: e vassalo nas obrigações internacionais no quadro da NATO e do Exercício ALCORA, uma vassalagem que não parou com o 25 de Abril de 1974.

Em Goa, Damão e Dio, ficou evidente que a capacidade militar do colonialismo português praticamente não existia e no campo da NATO, muito poucos tinham interesse em ajudar essa indigência avassalada, inclusive o aliado Grã-Bretanha.

Logo em 1961 relativamente a Angola, era essa a impressão do cônsul-geral da África do Sul em Luanda e por isso os portugueses recorreram desde logo ao “apartheid” para criar comunicações que levassem a futuros entendimentos com a África do Sul.

Se a vassalagem era impotente em relação à NATO, iriam buscá-la noutras paragens.

Em Setembro de 1963, a África do Sul ofereceu assistência militar e um ano depois, os portugueses manifestaram ao “apartheid” que estavam interessados num acordo permanente para o fornecimento de peças e outros serviços de apoio para os helicópteros Alouette III.

Em 1967 os dois países deram mais um passo no sentido do fornecimento por parte da África do Sul de material militar, algo que agradava ao “apartheid”, que além do mais se ia apercebendo que Portugal iria ficar em dependência em relação ao seu poderio e interesses.

Em 1968 os enlaces derivaram no sentido de se criar as bases do acordo do âmbito do Exercício ALCORA, sendo definida a entrada das SADF e Polícia sul-africana no sudeste de Angola, a pretexto do “apartheid” se juntar aos portugueses e dar caça simultaneamente às guerrilhas da SWAPO e do MPLA.

Em ambos os casos o “apartheid” aproveitou para estreitar laços com a PIDE/DGS, uma vez que o conceito e a doutrina dos Flechas às ordens de Óscar Cardoso lhes interessava, tanto como a Operação Madeira.

De entre os equipamentos que a África do Sul se comprometeu a fornecer nesse ano, estavam 5 helicópteros Alouette III, 33 autometralhadoras Panhard AML e 283 rádios TR 28C.

Algum desse armamento foi parar aos “Dragões” instalados no Bié, o que é um indicativo da percepção que o colonialismo português tinha sobre a importância geoestratégica da Região Central das Grandes Nascentes em Angola.

Para efeito desse fornecimento, os sul-africanos solicitaram ao Estado Novo que pedisse autorização aos franceses, uma vez que eram eles os produtores desses meios e o “apartheid”, que sob licença os produzia no seu território, respeitava os compromissos existentes com a França…

Portugal acedeu e os fornecimentos a partir de então passaram a ter plena garantia.

A França passou a ser um fornecedor de material de guerra que supria as necessidades do“apartheid”, no âmbito da internacional fascista que renitentemente se erguia em armas na África Austral e por tabela do colonialismo português, em especial nos teatros operacionais de Angola, Moçambique e Guiné Bissau.

É evidente que isso não teria sido possível sem que houvesse fortes laços entre os interessados da internacional fascista, ao abrigo do “Le Cercle”, um dos mentores mais reaccionários das políticas de então, unindo as tendências fascistas e colonialistas na Europa, na América Latina e em África, com respaldo das sucessivas administrações estado-unidenses.

O “Le Cercle” haveria de ter muitos êxitos nos seus “bons ofícios” na “defesa da civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e entre eles os resultantes dos papados no Vaticano dum polaco (João Paulo II – 22 de Outubro de 1978 a 2 de Abril de 2005) e dum alemão (Bento XVI – 24 de Abril de 2005 a 28 de Fevereiro de 2013)…

As mais “conservadoras” doutrinas da Igreja Católica Apostólica Romana, impactaram em Angola nos anos da “glasnost”, nos anos de chumbo, precisa e sincronizadamente na mesma altura dos impactos do capitalismo neoliberal após o desaparecimento do socialismo real da Europa e essa, sob o ponto de vista ideológico, é uma das explicações das aproximações que em função de Bicesse se fizeram a Angola, por via de partidos como o CDS, PSD e PS, até aos nossos dias… coisas de agenciados social-democratas do âmbito da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” e dos negócios que ela tão bem propicia, já se vê…

Antes era nesse mesmo esteio que se movia a “Aginter Press”, no quadro das “redes stay behind” da NATO e do “Le Cercle”, acima das capacidades operacionais dos serviços de inteligência de Portugal, Rodésia e África do Sul, ainda que tivesse ficado sem efeito a Concordata do Estado Novo com o Vaticano…

O apoio da França foi garantido e a África do Sul teve luz verde para continuar o fornecimento de material militar ao Estado Novo, o que reforçou o seu relativo domínio na definição, formulação e organização das tarefas e missões implícitas no acordo do Exercício ALCORA.

O Estado Novo foi ficando cada vez mais avassalado ao “apartheid”, à medida que progredia a instalação do Exercício ALCORA.

As políticas de Richard Nixon para África por seu turno, deram outra cobertura às iniciativas em prol do Exercício ALCORA e no leste de Angola, a África do Sul desencadeou a Operação Bombaim, contra as guerrilhas do MPLA e da SWAPO, dando início a uma prolongada “border war” que só iria terminar em finais da década de 80 do século XX, quando a Linha da Frente passou irreversivelmente do paralelo de Brazzaville – Dar es Salam, para o paralelo da fronteira sul de Angola, Zâmbia e Moçambique, dando posteriormente origem à criação da “Southern African Development Community”, SADC.

O Exercício ALCORA teve início formal entre 4 e 7 de Dezembro de 1971, permitindo um aumento dos fornecimentos de material de guerra por parte da França e da África do Sul ao Estado Novo.

Em 1973 e 1974 o estudo dos riscos e ameaças, em função das informações colhidas em Kinshasa no âmbito do Exercício ALCORA (que envolveu também a “antena diplomática” que dava pelo nome de António Monteiro), apontava para a eminência dum ataque a Cabinda e norte de Angola, sob orientação do apêndice da CIA, Mobutu, Presidente do Zaíre, reforçado por outros países africanos.

O Zaíre havia adquirido armamento e os programas de acção contra o colonialismo português em suporte das FLEC e da FNLA, começaram a ganhar corpo.

A escalada de fornecimento de material de guerra em 1974, por parte do “apartheid” ao colonialismo português, subiu uma vez mais a fasquia: os sul-africanos iriam fazer reconhecimentos aéreos em Cabinda e norte de Angola, “a fim de detectar indícios de preparativos de concentração de forças inimigas”, estimularam o fornecimento de mísseis Crotale e prepararam um acordo financeiro, com uma ampla política de crédito disponível.

O 25 de Abril de 1974 inviabilizou alguns dos fornecimentos militares e o reconhecimento aéreo acordado, não terá inviabilizado o financiamento (que lhe terá sido anterior também por causa do Plano do Cunene e Cabora Bassa), mas o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu na direcção de Cabinda e do norte de Angola, estimuladas pela CIA no encontro “secreto” entre o general Spínola e Mobutu na ilha do Sal, ficaram proteladas para o quadro das disputas relativas à independência de Angola a 11 de Novembro de 1975.

Foi assim que o aproveitamento das iniciativas de Mobutu, passaram a integrar a Operação IAFEATURE, da “CIA contra Angola”, conforme a denúncia de John Stockwell.

De entre esses aproveitamentos esteve o Exército de Libertação de Portugal, ELP, um resultado dos compromissos do general Spínola, que depois de ultrapassar a hesitação de alinhamento directo com o “apartheid”, acabou por alinhar na operação da “CIA contra Angola”, tendo à frente o Coronel Santos e Castro, um profundo conhecedor das áreas a norte de Luanda (Caxito e Dembos).

O ELP aglutinou alguns sectores ligados à Frente Unida de Angola, FUA e à Frente Revolucionária de Angola, FRA (criado por Jaime Nogueira Pinto), entre outros, cujos programas levavam à independência de Angola de acordo com as ideias de Ian Smith na Rodésia e de forma a “repescar”em tempo oportuno o Exercício ALCORA.

Em “Jogos africanos”, Jaime Nogueira Pinto (membro assumido do “Le Cercle”), revela:

“… Com a partida de Silvério Marques e a chegada de Rosa Coutinho a situação agravou-se muito em todos os sectores.

O Almirante Vermelho, que logo se fizera rodear de uma segurança nunca vista, mostrava-se frio e eficaz no prosseguimento dos seus objectivos.

Achei que era tempo de passar a formas superiores de luta.

AGITPROP.

Tive então a ideia de criar a FRA – Frente Revolucionária de Angola.

O conceito era simples.

Se fôssemos fazer uma coisa de raiz, nós, os miúdos, os militares metropolitanos, não teríamos qualquer hipótese de ser levados a sério pelos civis locais.

Por isso achámos melhor recorrer à acção psicológica e à agitprop, criando um mito, uma lenda.

Engendramos então uma organização secreta – a FRA.

Redigíamos os panfletos originais da dita organização e fazíamos como se nos tivessem vindo parar às mãos.

Depois fotocopiávamos os panfletos e distribuíamo-los por círculos de activistas, onde estavam o Engenheiro Pompílio da Cruz, o capitão Seara e outros.

O Mariz Fernandes era a única pessoa, para além de mim e do Nunes, que sabia da coisa.

A ideia que passávamos era a de que existia uma forte organização secreta de resistência ao MFA e que quem aderia a essa sofisticadíssima rede clandestina passava a fazer parte duma poderosa máquina subversiva.

Assim a FRA funcionou, teve adesões, recrutou militantes e fez até algumas operações.

Era o que importava: não estar quieto, tentar coisas contra o apocalipse que se aproximava”…

…Por aquela altura já estava eu incorporado no Movimento Democrático de Angola (MDA) que, antes da chegada do MPLA a Luanda, sob orientação da Drª Maria do Carmo Medina e de Antero de Abreu, se contrapunha às influências da FUA e do FRA.

O ELP tinha influências também no sul de Angola, (Huíla, Namibe e em Benguela), com resíduos que foram permanecendo até hoje, com influência nos sectores económicos e sócio-políticos daquelas províncias, e intimamente associados a outros intervenientes dentro e fora de Angola, nomeadamente em Portugal e na África do Sul.

Era nesse cadinho que a BOSS/NIS recrutava agentes, como os que foram mais tarde detectados e neutralizados pela segurança angolana; Amílcar Fernandes Freire, Francisco Alberto Abarran Barata e Dongala Kamati, (meados da década de 80)… eu fui um dos oficiais instrutores do processo que lhes foi correspondente em defesa dasegurança e soberania de Angola… mal sabendo eu que em breve seria acusado, julgado e condenado por “golpe de estado sem efusão de sangue”(Processo 76/86)…

Foi assim também que o “apartheid”, tacitamente, desencadearia a Operação Savana, em apoio a Savimbi, em simultâneo à Operação da “CIA contra Angola” e na perspectiva de Holden e Savimbi alcançarem o poder em Luanda, a 11 de Novembro de 1975…”border war” já se vê…

… E foi assim que Portugal (onde já se vivia o após 25 de Novembro de 1975), retardou o reconhecimento da República Popular de Angola, (só o fez a 22 de Fevereiro de 1976 e foi o 83º país a fazê-lo) na espectativa de sua inviabilização!

É evidente que à medida que a aristocracia financeira mundial assumia o domínio, todas as peças da “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se iam encaixando na sua estrutura em pirâmide, cada vez mais avassaladora, preparando a hegemonia unipolar.

16- A passagem da linha da frente progressista e informal, para a Linha da Frente contra o“apartheid” a sul de Angola, acompanhou a trajectória da evolução do Exercício ALCORA até ao seu colapso.

Em Brazzaville, sucederam-se vários governos progressistas, fora da órbitra das redes de Jacques Foccard e para tal muito contribuiu a ajuda internacionalista da 2ª coluna do Che, que teve em Jorge Risquet um dos seus principais dirigentes.

Instalada a partir de 1965, a 2ª coluna do Che, que continuou mesmo depois da passagem do Che pelo Congo na espectativa dos sucessos da guerrilha de Mulele, vocacionou-se também e desde logo no apoio ao Movimento de Libertação em África, nomeadamente no apoio ao MPLA.

No livro “El  Segundo Frente del Che en el Congo – Historia del Batallón Patricio Lumumba”, Jorge Risquet Valdés dá conta do papel da iniciativa solidária e internacionalista para com África, nos termos da linha da frente progressista informal que se instalou entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, narrando com detalhe as acções e citando uma nota do Comandante Fidel de Castro de 30 de Dezembro de 1966:

“Informa a nuestros compañeros en esa,

A nuestros instructores militares, que han permanecido meses alejados de nuestra pátria, cumpliendo misión histórica de solidariedade com pueblos hermanos de África y que han puesto mu yen alto el prestígio de la Revolución cubana envio un caluroso y bien merecido Saludo en estes dias de fiestas navideñas.

La actitud firme y decidida de ustedes, combatientes revolucionários, de permanecer voluntariamente junto a pueblos hermanos, amenazados y agredidos por el imperialismo, demuenstra el alto espiritu de internacionalismo proletário y de solidariedade revolucionaria que há alcanzado nuestro Pueblo. En esse gesto está presente el ideal revolucionaria de Camilo y la decisión inquebrantable de lucha del Che.

Nuestro partido, las fuerzas armadas revolucionaias y nuestro Pueblo, que se apresentan a festejar el octavo aniversario de nuestra Revolución, se sienten orgullosos de ustedes, abnegados jóvenes por la disposición de ofrendar sus vidas si fuere necessário por la causa justa de los pueblos oprimidos, conscientes de que com ello sirven a la pátria y a la humanidade”.

Muita capacidade operativa do MPLA e do PAIGC foi forjada nessa conjuntura, inclusive as três colunas que partiriam em socorro da Iª Região Política Militar do MPLA, cercada e vulnerável
a incursões militares e de inteligência por parte do colonialismo português.

Para o MPLA foi também muito importante para reverter as situações vividas com a sua expulsão do Zaíre.

As colunas do MPLA, Camilo Cienfuegos, Cami e Ferraz Bomboco foram apenas um dos resultados dessas iniciativas progressistas a partir de Brazzaville, além da continuidade da guerrilha de Pierre Mulele e da própria consolidação do poder progressista no Congo (Brazzaville).

Os guerrilheiros angolanos forjados nessas lutas inquebrantáveis, foram utilizados depois para a abertura da Frente Leste do MPLA já no início da década de 70 do século XX, fazendo progredir em direcção a sul a Libertação em África, tendo como rectaguarda o território zambiano e ponto de apoio logístico principal Dar es Salam; muitos dos chefes estiveram na proclamação das FAPLA.

A abertura da Frente Leste foi determinante para o “apartheid” se decidir a envolver no Exercício ALCORA, dando início à “border war” em 1968 e presença de suas forças no sudeste angolano, facto que por si comprova quanto era negativamente avaliado o poder militar do Estado Novo em Angola.

A abertura da Frente Leste obrigou por outro lado a internacional fascista (com Mobutu incluído) a reforçar as linhas etno-nacionaistas da FLEC, da FNLA e da UNITA…

Com o 25 de Abril de 1974, o Exercício ALCORA desmorona-se dos termos previstos pela internacional fascista que incluía Portugal, a Rodésia, a África do Sul e alguns aliados africanos infiltrados pelo seu sistema e pela CIA.

O plano de Mobutu para assaltar Cabinda e o norte de Angola, foi então “reconvertido”, o que só por si era um obstáculo à progressão em direcção sul das linhas progressistas a partir de Dar es Salam e Brazzaville.

Com a data de independência de Angola à vista, Mobutu “fazia-se ao bife”, sob os auspícios da CIA e tacitamente alinhado com o “apartheid”, enquanto os portugueses, perdidos nas lutas internas do MFA entre o 25 de abril de 1974 e o 25 de Novembro de 1975, iam respondendo conforme cada tendência política.

O Governador de Cabinda de então, Themudo Barata, veladamente alinhou com Mobutu e a FLEC, por efeito das políticas do general Spínola, conferindo à FLEC uma representatividade que não era internacionalmente reconhecida, numa polémica que é sustentada até nossos dias, com muitas entidades portuguesas a seguirem a trilha spinolista desde o 25 de Novembro de 1975.

As FLECs contam com apoios desse tipo em Portugal desde então.

Na aproximação do 11 de Novembro, Mobutu apoia a FLEC e a FNLA, de forma a intervir em Angola ao abrigo da CIA, pelo que angolanos e cubanos tiveram de travar as batalhas decisivas de Cabinda, Quifangondo e Ebo, a fim de ser proclamada a República Popular de Angola.

Em Cuba o Comandante Fidel apercebeu-se da importância de defender a capital angolana e simultaneamente Cabinda, pois sem isso seria impossível a progressão da linha da frente infrmal entre Dar es Salam e Brazzaville, para a Linha da Frente que mis tarde daria origem à SADC.

Pouco relevo se tem dado à batalha de Cabinda, mas o general de corpo de exército das Forças Armadas Revolucionárias de Cuba, Ramón Espinosa Martin, elaborou um relato completo dos acontecimentos no seu livro “La Batalla de Cabinda”.

Desse livro destaco uma das lições geoestratégicas do Comandante Fidel em África.

“Mensage de Salida nº. 58

Destino: Luanda.

Al: 1er. Comdt. Arguelles- Gondin.

El comandante en Jefenos há pedido les trasmitamos el seguiente texto:

Para Angola se envio todo lo solicitado e incluso más.

Se decidió reforzar Cabinda com recursos absolutamente adicionales.

Se envio também personal que estuviera en disposición de combatir.

Cabinda es el punto más débil y peor defendido.

Si se pierde Cabinda no lo podran recuperar más.

Angola sin Cabinda no podrá consolidar su independenciaporque alli están los recursos económicos fundamentales.

Mobutu quiere apoderar-se de Cabinda y tarde o temprano la va a agredir, sobre todo si sabe que está indefensa.

Es necessário que ustedes entiendan esto y se lo hagan compreender al MPLA.

Se acordo además enviar a Angola el personal necessário para la técnica soviética.

Por esto no lo creemos que se deba continuar debilitando Cabinda.

Si ya bajaron los morteros 120 en Bengela, úsenlos entonces en Angola pero no reduzcan más los medios destinados a Cabinda.

Debemos atenernos a los planos acordados.

Ahora se lucha en Angola pero no sabemos lo que puede ocurrir en Cabinda y no debemos dejar nuestro personal alli debilitado, ya que en caso de ataque por fuerzas d Zaire tendrán que luchar muy duramente y prácticamente solos.

En Angola tienen ya bastantes médios.

Estan recebuiendo además el material de otros países y se puede continuar reforzando desde aqui com personal cubano.

Si Hay peligro real en Luanda es mejor reforzar esa dirección com médios de las otras escuelas antes que descuidar Cabinda.

Ustedes tienen ahi varias opciones posibles cuando lo consideren realmente necesario.

Los ruego analicen com serenidade estos hechos.

Si se gana la guerra en Angola Y se pierde en Cabinda, se habra perdido mucho.

Hay que tratr de obtener los objectivos completos en ambos puntos.

Saludos, Fidel.

Firmado: Colomé.

18.10.75”.

A Operação Carlota estava lançada e a RPA levaria a linha da frente para a sua própria fronteira sul, o que obrigaria o “apartheid” a reinventar e reconverter a “border war”, nunca desperdiçando o que quer que fosse dos “bons ofícios” à portuguesa no quadro dos sucessivos governos de após 25 de Novembro de 1975, tendo em conta a absorção de muitos conceitos e práticas do colonialismo português e dos nexos de inteligência que todos eles propiciavam.

Isso perdurou não só enquanto esteve em vigência o “apartheid”, mas também quando as políticas hegemónicas unipolares incentivadas pela “civilização judaico-cristã ocidental” se fortaleceram e impactaram da maneira mais terrível (choque neoliberal entre 1992 e 2002), quanto da maneira mais “persuasiva” (quando se foi evidenciando a terapia neoliberal em Angola, de 2002 aos nossos dias)… para esse efeito a inteligência económica dos sucessivos governos de Portugal, vassala dos poderosos, tal como do Bilderberg, esperaram a sua hora!

Em relação a Angola, por alturas do passamento físico do Comandante Fidel, foi justo o que escrevi na Embaixada de Cuba enquanto “soldado do MPLA” e antigo combatente angolano, face à fotografia do Comandante, insigne lutador pelas mais justas causas libertárias de África:

“… De Argel ao Cabo…

Cavalgando com Fidel!

… Levando o ardor progressista desde contra o baluarte do colonialismo francês no Norte de África…

… Até contra o bastião mais retrógrado e fascista que existia à face da Terra após a IIª Guerra Mundial, em seu perverso domínio em toda a África Austral…

… Precisamente no sentido inverso ao projetado pelo império anglo-saxónico sob inspiração de Cecil John Rhodes… do Cabo ao Cairo…

… Em 55 anos foi de facto um vulcão libertário que sacudiu África e se distendeu, um vulcão libertário cuja energia tem aqui e agora, no berço da humanidade, oportunidade para muito melhor se refletir, se equacionar e inteligentemente aproveitar!...

… Quanto os africanos não têm saudavelmente absorvido do legítimo contributo e histórica responsabilidade revolucionária cubana, por via das armas enquanto houvera que ser, por via da educação e da saúde enquanto nesses 55 anos o foi, o é… e o será no porvir!?

Vencido o colonialismo pelas armas… vencido o apartheid pelas armas… vencidas algumas de suas sequelas pelas armas… quando face às bombas nucleares nenhum combatente progressista recuou… a paz, a harmonia e a luta contra o subdesenvolvimento tornou-se mais possível que nunca!...”

          Gorilla Baby Name Announcement This Weekend!   
The Buffalo Zoo will announce the winning name for the new baby gorilla during an “APE-ril” event this Saturday.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 2 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Zoo’s gorilla exhibit.

Spend the afternoon learning all about the gorillas! The APE-ril event will feature keeper talks, feedings, a birthday celebration for Sydney, and the announcement of the winning name for her new baby boy!



Earlier this year, the Zoo announced that a new baby had been born to gorilla parents 28-year-old Koga, and Sydney, who is turning 19 this month. A few weeks ago, the Zoo revealed that the baby is a boy and asked the community to vote between three possible names for the little guy. The winning name will be revealed during Saturday’s event. Sydney was born at The Buffalo Zoo in 1997, and is also the mother of five-year-old Amari.

A full schedule of APE-ril event activities follows:

  • 11 a.m. – Crafts and Q&A session at the gorilla exhibit
  • 12 p.m. – Announcement of the winning name for the baby gorilla
  • 12:20 p.m. – Birthday treats for Sydney
  • 1 p.m. – Crafts and keeper talk in the gorilla exhibit
  • 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. – Crafts and Q&A session at the gorilla exhibit


Any visitor who brings an unwanted cell phone to the Zoo will receive $1 off admission. Recycling cell phones helps gorillas in the Congo by decreasing the demand for coltan mining.

For more information about Saturday’s event, call (716) 995-6133.

Le sanglot de l'homme noir


Alain Mabanckou

Suffit-il d'être Noirs pour être frères ? Qu'ont en commun un Antillais, un Sénégalais et un Noir né à Paris, sinon la couleur à laquelle ils se plaignent d'être réduits ? Et la généalogie qu'ils se sont forgée, celle du malheur et de l'humiliation (esclavage, colonisation, immigration)… Dans cet essai, Alain Mabanckou refuse de définir l'identité noire par les larmes et le ressentiment. Alain Mabanckou est essayiste, poète et romancier. En 2015, il a été professeur de création artistique au Collège de France.

          UN demands electoral timetable for troubled DR Congo   

UN demands electoral timetable for troubled DR CongoThe United Nations on Saturday called on the Democratic Republic of Congo to publish a timetable for elections which are due by the end of the year. Under a deal brokered last New Year's Eve, President Joseph Kabila agreed to a transitional arrangement enabling him to stay in power pending presidential and legislative elections by the end of 2017. In a statement, the UN's special representative for DR Congo, Maman Sidikou, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) "to publish an official, consensus-based timetable, without further delay" for staging the elections.

          Le Premier ministre au culte de St. François de Kintambo pour commémorer l’indépendance du pays    


Le Premier ministre Bruno Tshibala Nzenzhe a assisté vendredi à la paroisse Saint François de kintambo à la messe commémorative de l’accession de la République Démocratique du Congo à la souveraineté internationale.

Le premier ministre qui a pris la parole a insisté sur l’homélie de l’officiant qui a invité les premiers communiants à marcher en présence de Dieu et à être parfaits.




Le Gouverneur André Kimbuta qui a assisté à ce culte à coté du chef du gouvernement à adressé un message de paix et une exhortation aux kinois à un dialogue permanent avant d’indiquer la raison d’être de ce culte, à savoir l’indépendance acquise au prix de mille sacrifice et dans l’esprit d’abnégation par les héros recensés et inconnus.

Il a demandé aux jeunes en particulier d’être à l’écoute de leurs parents afin d’éviter toute sorte de dérapage qui leur conduiraient à la délinquance avant de confirmer que le gouvernement à pris des mesures pour traquer les fauteurs de trouble et tous ceux qui perturbent l’ordre public pour permettre aux kinois de vaquer librement à leurs occupations quotidiennes car, a-t-il dit, sans la paix aucun développement n’est possible.

Il a, dans le même contexte rappelé les méfaits de gaspillages qui ont détruit le tissu économique du pays privant ainsi la nation la possibilité de créer des emplois en faveur des jeunes.













M.Kimbuta a annoncé que le Gouvernement a pris des dispositions nécessaires en vue de répondre aux préoccupations de la population sous l’impulsion du Président de la République, Joseph kabila Kabange. Il a invité tous les kinois à se faire enrôler au motif que cette opération a comme avantages l’obtention de la carte pour des élections à venir et pour s’identifier comme citoyen du pays, en recommandant à la CENI d’améliorer cette opération en évitant la lenteur déploré par la population.

Le gouverneur a effectué une visite éclair de la municipalité de kitambo à l’issue de cette célébration eucharistique en commémoration de l’indépendance du pays recommandée d’être célébrée dans la méditation par le chef de l’Etat dans toute l’étendue du territoire national.







Plusieurs cultes ont été organisés à travers les communes de la Ville de Kinshasa, notamment à la Cathédrale notre Dame de Lingwala où l’officiant du jour, le Cardinal, Laurent Monsengwo pasinya a confié le peuple congolais à l’intercession de la Vierge Marie, patronne de la RDC.

          RDC : Sidikou, à son tour, hausse le ton pour l’application « sans délai » de l’accord du 31 décembre   
D’après le communiqué de la MONUSCO publié ce samedi 1er juillet 2017, le représentant spécial du Secrétaire général des Nations Unies en République démocratique du Congo Maman Sidikou, appelle tous les signataires de l’Accord du 31 décembre 2016 à mettre en œuvre intégralement et de bonne foi ce compromis politique, sans délai.



«Le Représentant spécial exhorte le gouvernement à poursuivre et assurer la mise en œuvre intégrale et rapide des mesures de décrispation prévues par l’Accord du 31 décembre 2016, afin de créer l’environnement politique et les autres conditions nécessaires pour l’organisation des élections », dit le communiqué.









Cet appel du chef de la Monusco se joint à celui des plusieurs acteurs de la communauté internationale qui insistent également sur la mise en œuvre de l’accord de la Saint-Sylvestre pour une rapide sortie de crise.

          «J’appelle la CENI à publier sans plus tarder un calendrier officiel et consensuel pour l’organisation des élections» – (Sidikou)   
En marge de sa déclaration appelant à la mise en œuvre « sans délai » de l’accord du 31 décembre 2016, le représentant spécial du Secrétaire général des Nations Unies en République démocratique du Congo et Chef de la MONUSCO, Maman Sidikou a également invité la CENI à publier sans tarder un calendrier électoral pour la tenue des élections prévues en décembre 2017 par ledit accord.




«C’est à la CENI que revient la responsabilité principale d’organiser les élections conformément à la Constitution et à l’accord du 31 décembre 2016. J’appelle donc la CENI à publier sans plus tarder un calendrier officiel et consensuel pour l’organisation de ces élections », a déclaré Sidikou, d’après le communiqué de la MONUSCO publié ce samedi 1er juillet 2017.











L’appel de Sidikou pour la publication du calendrier électoral sans plus tarder, est une pression de plus sur la Commission électorale. Ceci après la déclaration d’Olivier Kamitatu, qui avait promis, le 26 juin dernier sur le plateau de TV5Monde, que sa plateforme politique G7 irait à la désobéissance et résistance si jamais la CENI ne publie pas le calendrier électoral dans le délai.

          Serge Ibaka Releases Statement Regarding Age Discrepancy Rumors   

Free-agent forward Serge Ibaka responded to rumors Saturday that he is older than his listed age of 27.

Ibaka tweeted the following regarding his heritage and asked the media to take responsibility for what he labeled false reporting:

Ibaka's comments came after ESPN's Zach Lowe appeared on Bleacher Report's The Full 48 podcast this week and discussed the matter:

"Look, as uncomfortable as it is to say that, the league, not the league office, teams believe that [Ibaka] is older than his listed age. So whether he is or not, or what are the ethical issues of saying that, I don't know. But it affects the free-agency market for him."

After spending the first seven years of his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Ibaka was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Toronto Raptors last season.

He finished the campaign with averages of 14.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.

Ibaka was originally selected with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics before they moved to OKC.

The Congo native came to the NBA in 2009-10 and developed into one of the league's top defensive players, as evidenced by his three NBA All-Defensive Team selections.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (h/t Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic) reported Friday that there is a "significant chance" Ibaka re-signs with the Raptors.

Toronto is working to keep several of its free agents, as Ibaka, Kyle Lowry and P.J. Tucker have all hit the open market.

          L’étonnement de ceux qui visitent le Congo, notre pays !   
Je pleure dans mon cœur en voyant le Congo dans cet état!
********************************
Tous ceux qui parcourent le Congo ( Rep. Dém) restent sans paroles et rentrent avec un cœur pincé. Ils n'arrivent pas à concilier la grande richesse que nous avons et le degré de misère de notre peuple. Un pays aussi riche, avec les atouts nécessaires pour vivre dignement mais sans structures. Un pays où coulent le lait et le miel (sous sol très riche,eau, foret, ...) mais considéré comme l'un des pays le plus pauvre de la planète...! Un gâchis.
On comprend alors l’étonnement, la colère, le scandale et la souffrance intérieure de ceux qui connaissent ou visitent ce pays. Pas possible. Les évêques ont alors raison de dire: Debout congolais!

          30 Juin 1960-30Juin 2017: 57 ans depuis l’indépendance    
Le pays va très mal. 
Debout congolais !lance la CENCO
*******************
Le pays va très mal. Debout congolais ! Décembre 2017 approche ». C’est le message qu’adressent les évêques, membres de la Conférence Episcopale Nationale du Congo (CENCO), à l’issue de leur 54ème assemblée plénière ordinaire, tenu à Kinshasa du 19 au 23 juin 2017.
« Nous sommes profondément inquiets et préoccupés par la détérioration continue de la situation économique, sécuritaire et humanitaire, ainsi que par l’impasse politique actuelle», disent les évêques.
Au point de vue socioéconomique, la CENCO relève que la santé économique du pays est critique et empire au jour le jour. Elle dénonce la corruption, les évasions fiscales et le détournement des fonds publics par un groupe qui abuse du pouvoir ; avec pour conséquence la détérioration sans précédent de la vie sociale de la majorité des congolais.
Les évêques soulignent en outre que « l’insécurité quasi-généralisée à travers le territoire national influe directement sur la vie des personnes ». Ils rappellent le lourd bilan humanitaire et matériel des affrontements dans le Kasaï (3.383 morts, 30 fausses communes, plus d’un million des déplacés internes et 30.000 réfugiés en Angola en neuf mois).
La CENCO craint par ailleurs la mise en œuvre d’un plan de balkanisation de la République Démocratique du Congo, à la suite de la présence des éleveurs Mbororo et autres éleveurs étranges, installés dans plusieurs provinces du pays. Cela s’accompagne de la présence massive, permanente et incontrôlée de plusieurs groupes armés sur le territoire national semant désolation et inquiétudes. A cela s’ajoutent d’autres faits comme des kidnapping et assassinats des enfants, les enlèvements, les vols à mains armées devenus récurrentes. Des récentes évasions des plusieurs prisons du pays n’étaient-elles pas programmées, s’interrogent les évêques ?
La CENCO fustige le manque de justice, la restriction du droit à la liberté d’expression et l’interdiction des manifestions pacifiques, qui va jusqu’à un usage excessif de la force ; ainsi que les arrestations arbitraires des défenseurs des droits humains, des acteurs politiques et sociaux et de tous ceux dont la voix diverge de la pensée du pouvoir.
En plus, les évêques notent un durcissement de pouvoir ainsi que l’absence de l’autorité de l’Etat et du débat public sur des questions cruciales.
L’origine de la situation misérable dans laquelle vit aujourd’hui le peuple congolais est une conséquence de la persistante crise sociopolitique due principalement à la non-organisation des élections conformément à la constitution du pays, font-ils observer. Ainsi, ils plaident pour l’application intégrale de l’Accord Global et inclusif de la Saint Sylvestre, «l’unique feuille de route », qui contient des pistes de solution à la sortie pacifique de cette crise. Mais ils regrettent qu’un manque de volonté politique et un mépris de la souffrance du peuple contribuent à vider de son contenu cet Accord. Ils exhortent « toutes les parties prenantes de l’Accord à assumer pleinement leurs responsabilités de bonne foi et par amour pour la patrie ».
Les évêques invitent aussi les congolais à s’impliquer pour la bonne marche de leur pays, sans céder à la peur ou au fatalisme, afin de ne pas laisser hypothéquer leur avenir. Ils encouragent par ailleurs la poursuite de l’éducation civique et électorale; ainsi qu’un engagement actif et pacifique dans l’éradication des causes de la souffrance.
La CENCO appelle la population à s’enrôler massivement en vue des élections qui doivent se tenir avant la fin de cette année, conformément à l’Accord de la Saint Sylvestre. Elle invite ainsi la Commission Electorale Nationale Indépendante (CENI) à bien préparer l’organisation de ces élections.

En outre, les évêques appellent instamment à des moments de prière intense et des jeunes dans chaque paroisse, à compter du 30 juin, date anniversaire de l’indépendance du pays. Cela doit s’accompagner de la solidarité et de la proximité fraternelle envers ceux qui vivent dans des zones des conflits, exhortent les évêques.

          Woodworking in the Congo #1: Maybe this time I can actually do it   

As many of you know I’m working in the DRC, and have been for a couple of years. All of my jobs in the Congo so far have been on mines, and mines always kill trees. You just have to look through my blogs and projects to know that I hate seeing a tree go to waste.

On my first (and second) Congo mining job I made an offer to the Mine – Give me an equipped workshop and your dead trees, and I’ll teach the locals woodwork in my spare time.

The reason is three-fold:

a.) I hate wasted wood

b.) I need something productive and interesting to do with the (very) little spare time I get
and most importantly-

c.) Out here in the rural areas, most of the locals have ZERO marketable skills. We even have to teach many of them how to use a handsaw, and power tools are so far removed from their experience, they might as well be from a sci-fi book. Most have never seen or heard of a wood chisel before. Many have never earned more than $20 in any month in their entire lives. When the construction phase ends, the number of people employed by the the mine will reduced drastically, and I believe we must leave them better off than when we arrived. It would be irresponsible to do otherwise.

Anyway, on my previous jobs, my offer was refused with “When the mine starts making money, we’ll start our social upliftment projects”.

HOWEVER
I think it’s going to happen this time. I have spoken with my Construction Manager and the mine’s manager of social projects, and they are keen. They asked me to prepare a collection of photos to show what I can teach, and a preliminary budget to equip a wood school. The facility is not a problem, as the mine already has a training centre that is currently underutilised. Previously they built the training centre to train people in Mine related activities, but there is a significant space that is unused.

Our first obstacle will be to get the Mine manager to approve the idea and budget. He’ll be back on site in a few days and then the 4 of us (Construction manager, Social manager, Mine manager, and me) will sit down to explore the idea further. I have been led to believe that he will eagerly support the idea, but that budget may be a bit of an issue. Already some people are talking of holding a fund-raising event to help make this a reality.

I’ll post progress on this project from time to time and, whenever possible, I’ll post pictures as well.

As LJ member Todd A. Clippinger says “Share the Love~Share the Knowledge”

Wish me luck !!!


          I'm Demoted to Lurker Status again   

Hi guys – Greetings from the Democratic Republic of Congo

I am firmly ensconced in my tent and I have semi-reliable internet access. I have a ton of work to do even though Sunday is our off-day. Ah well, at least I have a few hours to catch up on all the projects, blogs and advice going on here. I’m glad I can be a lurker and stay in touch with you all, and enjoy the works displayed on this site.

Hopefully all my ShopSmith spares will also have arrived by the time I get home, & I am looking forward to finishing the restoration. In the meantime I’ll be checking up periodically on the happenings on LJ’s and being jealous of you that are in your workshops. Enjoy

Cheers from the heart of Darkest Africa.

          Gol vai operar ainda neste ano com segundo voo Congonhas-Jericoacoara   
O secretário do Turismo do Ceará, Arialdo Pinho, anunciou, nessa sexta-feira (30), que a GOL irá começar a segunda frequência semanal do voo Congonhas (SP)/Jericoacoara a partir do fim deste ano. Ele esteve reunido nesta manhã com diretores da GOL. O primeiro voo semanal da companhia para o Aeroporto Regional de Cruz (Litoral Oeste) teve início no último sábado (24), quando o equipamento foi inaugurado. A segunda frequência semanal será às quartas-feiras. A informação é do site da Setur/CE.

“O voo está com uma procura excelente. O primeiro estava lotado, o segundo também e a ocupação para esses primeiros meses está muito boa. Por isso, a GOL já quer iniciar a segunda frequência semanal a partir do fim deste ano”, adianta o secretário. Segundo Arialdo, o início das operações do Aeroporto de Jericoacoara tem uma importância fundamental para o turismo do Litoral Oeste, impulsionando a economia da região como um todo.

A expectativa é que, com o aeroporto, a princípio, haja um aumento de 7% no número total de turistas da região. Ao longo de três anos, esse número deve chegar a 20%. O Aeroporto de Jericoacoara faz parte do Programa de Valorização da Infraestrutura Turística do Litoral Oeste (Proinftur). Tem pista de pouso de 2.200 x 45 metros, estacionamento de 1.200 m2 e capacidade para receber 600 mil passageiros por ano.

********************************************
Mwanamuziki nyota wa Kidemokrasia ya Congo, Fere Gora na mwanamuziki nyota nchini, Christian Bella watafanya onyesho pamoja kwenye ukumbi wa King Solomon Jumamosi.
Onyesho hilo limepangwa kuanza Saa 2.00 usiku, ni maalum kwa ajili ya kuadhimisha miaka 57 ya Uhuru wa nchi ya DR Congo.
Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa kampuni ya Montage Tanzania Limited, Teddy Mapunda alisema kuwa maandalizi ya onyesho hilo yamekamilika na kuwaomba wadau kufika kwa wingi ili kupata radha tofauti ya Fere Gora na Christian Bella.
Teddy amesema kuwa awali waliamua kufanya onyesho moja tu la VIP kwenye ukumbi wa Serena Hotel, lakini kutokana na kutambua mashabiki mbalimbali wa Fere Gora wa hapa nchini, wameamua kuongeza onyesho hilo maalum pia.
Hii ni mara ya kwanza kwa mwanamDR Congo kufanya onyesho Tanzania. Mashabiki watarajie kupata radha mbalimbali za nyimbo maarufu kama Vita Imana, 100 kilos na nyingine kibao.
Akizungumzia ujio wake nchini, Fere amesema kuwa ni fursa kwake kufanya onyesho Tanzania na kuahidi kufanya kile ambacho mashabiki wanakitarajia.
“Nimekuja hapa kufanya onyesho na kutoa burudani kwa mashabiki wangu, nimejiandaa vilivyo na naamini pia Bella atafanya kama mimi,” alisema Fere.
Wanamuziki hao jana walishiriki katika zoezi maalum la kung'arisha madarasa ya shule ya Uhuru mchanganyiko kama sehemu ya maadhimisho ya sikukuu ya Uhuru.
Kwa mujibu wa Mapunda mbali ya kufanya zoezi la kupaka rangi, pia wameadhimia kutoa misaada mbalimbali kama Tv kubwa, deki, jiko la gesi na mtungi, vifaa vya michezo, jezi seti 3 mipira na madawati.
Amesema kuwa msaada mwingine utakwenda kwa shule Wama Nakayama, iliyopo Nyamisati ambayo itapewa madawati na misaada mbalimbali.

          Business and Private Diplomacy: A Potential Catalyst for Sustainable Peace   

30 Jun 2017

By Misha Nagelmackers-Voinov for Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP)

The UN has frequently acknowledged that the private sector can function as a powerful agent of change. However, the world body’s preferred partners to resolve conflicts and build peace remain civil society and armed actors. Additionally, the leaders of UN peace operations have never been expressly mandated to consult with business communities or use their influence to build peace. Well, these practices have to change, argues Misha Nagelmackers-Voinov, both at the multinational and micro-national levels.

This article was originally published by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy in June 2017.

Introduction

A general overview of what the term “private sector” entails will help define the scope of this paper. The private sector can be defined as the part of the economy that is not run by a state, but by individuals and companies for profit. It comprises a large diversity of organisations such as publicly or privately owned companies, including multinational companies (MNCs); organisations owned and operated by a group of individuals for their mutual benefit such as cooperatives; or organisations that raise funds to operate and are financed by government or intergovernmental organisations or through hybrid business models, such as non-governmental organisations (NGOs), but excluding non-profit organisations (NPOs).1 When referring to the private sector, this paper will include publicly or privately owned companies, including MNCs, but exclude private military companies. All private sector organisations’ main driving forces can be summed up as a quest for profits, security and reputation.

Because it is multidimensional, the private sector can be classified in many ways. In addition to a classification by sector, businesses can be ranked by size, number of employees, geographical presence, if they are a local business or the subsidiary of an MNC, or are tailored to serve domestic needs or export markets (or both). In a violence-or conflict-affected context each category of business will evolve differently, reinvent itself or disappear.

Key Points

Small businesses/micro-companies serve as a good starting point for a conflict resolution process because they often constitute the only form of economic activity in a conflict zone.MNCs have a range of options to respond to conflict, but cannot openly take part in conflict resolution and peacebuilding initiatives, and rarely become involved officially. Track Two diplomacy is their more likely area of involvement.The United Nations has frequently supported the view that the private sector can be a powerful agent of change. However, the UN still engages only two players in conflict resolution and peacebuilding: civil society/NGOs and armed actors. UN peace operations have never been expressly mandated to consult with business or use its influence to build peace.Combining the resources, expertise and leverage of all possible actors would produce a more formidable force for peace. World affairs would benefit from integrating the private sector into a new UN system of governance; new routes are possible for a truly inclusive approach, recognising the business sector’s positive contribution to sustainable peace through informal mediation and collaborative engagement.

A converging definition and shared approach

Size is the most convenient and easily available criterion of classification for private sector companies. In emerging market economies affected by violence or conflict there would be five main categories of private businesses: formal businesses (big companies that are registered with local authorities and pay taxes); semi-formal medium-sized companies (which pay taxes, but are not systematically registered with authorities); small companies (which represent the vast majority of businesses, operate in a dedicated area or office, and are registered with local authorities); micro-companies (which operate from a variety of places such as markets or in the street and pay some form of tax on the temporary location from which they conduct business, such as a market place or handcart); and home workshops (which are mainly to be found in larger cities). Small companies operating from a dedicated or informal area provide more than half of the world’s formal jobs. They are key drivers of economic growth and development, as well as the backbone of a local economy. Among the medium-sized or small private companies mentioned above, government employees might run such small businesses in some countries in order to diversify sources of income or risk, and allow close or even remote family members to make a living.

As violence increases or conflict breaks out, micro-companies and MNCs will be impacted, but never in the same ways or at the same pace. Generally, the private sector will shift from traded to non-traded goods (i.e. goods provided by donors), cut investment, and shift its capital to foreign currency assets and away from its production tools. Commerce and tourism will be the first sectors to contract, followed by manufacturing and construction. This shift will create conditions for an informal economy (which employs 80% of the population of the Democratic Republic of the Congo/DRC2) as households’ incomes deteriorate and inflation affects official and parallel markets alike. Falls in employment will create falls in domestic savings and greater reliance on external aid. In such environments, agriculture and public administration will often remain the only source of official employment and income. Violence and conflict also change the prosperity equilibrium as individual roles evolve. When men die in conflict, women become responsible for ensuring the community’s survival by starting informal businesses or taking up farming.3

Small players, such as micro-companies, become important: in chaotic times grassroots, local entrepreneurs provide the only goods, services and jobs available in a given conflict zone. They can also make an important contribution to conflict transformation because they maintain their economic influence and local political contacts during the conflict, and thus serve as a good starting point for a conflict resolution process. So do business associations, because they often also have close links to governments and represent all sides of the conflict.

The Guatemalan experience illustrates the role of business associations. The 36-year civil war in that country was caused by interlinked social, economic and political factors, “specifically ideological differences embedded in the global political struggle of the Cold War”.Initially, the Guatemalan private sector was not a fervent supporter of the peace negotiations. The overall intensity of the war was low and geographically contained in mountainous areas, and the sectors that were most affected by the conflict were limited to tourism and the coffee industry. Negotiations with all stakeholders, including business, started on a very positive note. However, because of tensions between factions within the association representing the private sector, Comité Coordinador de Asociaciones Agricolas, Comerciales, Industriales y Financieras (CACIF), it refused to meet rebel groups, demanding instead an immediate ceasefire. Interestingly, the coffee industry did not embrace peace talks, because the peace process was associated with economic reform, while the tourism sector, too weak to lobby, was absent from the process. This tends to support the idea that different groups within the business sector are more or less willing or able to support mediation or a peace process.

At the other end of the size spectrum lie MNCs. They account for two-thirds of world trade and can be defined as large corporations incorporated in one country, implementing a consistent multinational response among their various subsidiaries. Their global number is estimated at 80,000, with 840,000 subsidiaries across the world, representing 75,000,000 employees. During the 1950s and 1960s host governments rarely intervened in the affairs of MNCs. Nowadays, these large companies are more flexible and more responsive to their host governments’ demands. But not all MNCs follow the same strategy, and some will sacrifice market participation to preserve strategic autonomy. “There can be no growth in an environment where there is no peace”, says Unilever boss Paul Polman, insisting that business “can and must be a force for good5”. The “corporate coalition” backing Peace One Day – including Skype, McKinsey, Ocado, Innocent, Coca-Cola and Burger King – is a start, but certainly not what corporations do best.6 Instead, they could engage in discussions on good governance and obstacles to peace.

An MNC subsidiary faces complex governance challenges in the wake of violence or conflict. It is controlled by its parent company, which is often based outside the region or country; this company bears the ultimate responsibility for the group’s worldwide strategic direction. The affiliate or subsidiary is expected to support the overall objectives of its group, contributing to its brand and matters of corporate priority such as Western-led concepts like corporate social responsibility (CSR). This is a first possible gap between the subsidiary of a MNC and its host country. Understanding often diminishes and misunderstandings widen as violence increases in the country hosting the subsidiary, due to the distance between the centre of power (company headquarters) and the local affiliate.

Going Beyond CSR; or, the limitations of policies

Recent literature7 has explored how MNCs are expected to contribute to peace and security in the absence of public or government capacity to fulfil this role. Most of those who participated in this research (through individual phone interviews or plenary sessions) were communications directors, CSR managers, and line and business managers from MNCs’ subsidiaries. Many respondents seemed to ignore the role their employer could or did play in peace and security. This might be because CSR involves voluntary self-commitments focusing mainly on the environment, health care, education or security. The role of business in conflict is rarely addressed in this context, either because the CSR agenda needs to be broadened or because businesses are indeed active in issues related to the conflict, but it is not considered part of CSR. This constitutes a second gap in the corporate governance of MNCs: local CSR is part of a more global CSR strategy and is often managed as an extension of local public affairs, public relations or marketing efforts. In order to offer any sense of how MNCs’ subsidiaries can have an impact on peace and security, further research is needed from the business point of view involving risk managers, chief financial officers, and members of the executive board in charge of audit and control committees.

Research by swisspeace focused on Swiss MNCs and how they engage in peace efforts.8 The paper in question is based on interviews with CSR managers from the MNCs’ head offices and focuses on their knowledge of their companies’ contribution to peacebuilding. The data covers eight to ten Swiss companies from various sectors. Most CSR managers appear to be unaware of the ways in which they could engage in peace processes or what role they could play. As the authors suggest, this might be because peacemaking or conflict transformation “is not linked to the business case”.9 Other explanations also come to mind. Firstly, involvement in a political process can only result from an informal individual initiative, not as part of a formal representation of the company, and strictly on a confidential basis, which means no public relations communications – in fact, no communication whatsoever. Secondly, the lack of institutional trust between civil society or advocacy NGOs and the private sector is so heightened that such high-level strategic information will be considered only on a need-to-know basis. The CSR manager will deal with philanthropic initiatives to improve the environment or help local communities, as well as manage advocacy NGOs or research foundations. CSR or security managers might not be involved in all formal or informal contacts between a local business manager and strategic stakeholders.

The review of existing grey research covering CSR managers in MNC subsidiaries and MNC headquarters demonstrates that there is an obvious need for more research in the area of violence and conflict resolution in terms of risk management. As a result, the issue of the relationship between business and peace might be more one of board policy or operational strategy, and therefore falls beyond CSR.

Take a positive peace perspective

When an MNC considers suspending its activities due to violence or conflict, the result is an important depletion of local knowledge – and an increase in risk for the local population and local business alike, because of outsourced goods and services. The immediate consequence of an MNC’s withdrawal or shutdown is undesirable from a local employment perspective: selling a subsidiary to a competitor might appear more desirable, but not if the new owner recognises fewer rights for employees and local communities (human rights, labour rights, development rights, social and economic rights).

Acting truly locally is a strategic challenge for global MNCs. Some are able to act like local businesses.10They employ local people, thus contributing to social mixing, and support those who wish to start their own businesses. This strategy maintains a certain level of economic normality in times of violence or conflict – and prepares for future peace. This can also be achieved by an MNC subsidiary maintaining local infrastructure such as transport, or temporarily covering basic health and social services. In all these examples the private sector can compensate for temporary state shortcomings or the total collapse of state-supplied services.

But in the absence of a mandate to participate in peace settlements, the private sector might resolve to consider its bottom line rather than its humanitarian impact, and shut down or sell its operations, despite adverse local consequences. In Nepal, for instance, the economic stagnation that marked the period following the end of civil war in 2006 was caused by the withdrawal of Indian MNCs that supported the Nepalese economy, and clearly hindered political and social stability.

It might be of interest to consider what strategies the private sector – MNCs and local businesses alike – can chose in a context of violence or conflict. Firstly, it can decide to take advantage of the economics of war and grow its business. Secondly, it can conduct business as usual, under local regulation or the absence of it, either because it cannot withdraw (e.g. a local business), or because violence is not affecting its operations. Thirdly, it can withdraw from the conflict zone and disengage. Fourthly, it can decide to engage proactively and contribute to public security.

From a positive peace perspective, business can foster economic development, support an emerging or existing legal system, and nourish a sense of community. It does not, however, consider the provision of assistance to local communities as a political act, but as tangible ways of reducing its operational costs. In matters of general strategy or corporate policy, CSR is considered as part of operations, while supporting peace or conflict resolution is the exclusive prerogative of the local or international political domain. In practice, the difference between CSR and working for peace and stability follows a very fine line, and is more of a corporate philosophy than an entrenched position. Businesses are committed to avoiding conflict as best they can. But as outsiders in a host country they must remain neutral: actively negotiating between warring parties cannot be part of their licence to operate. Business therefore cannot openly take part in conflict resolution and peacebuilding activities.

Because of the reputational and security risks involved in participating in peace mediation processes, companies rarely become involved officially, and if they do, it is with the utmost confidentiality and discretion. If the private sector contributes to conflict transformation efforts – for instance, through good offices or by supporting higher national interests – it is often on condition that its non-core contribution remains secret. If its contribution is publicised, its licence to operate and the safety of its staff, operations or infrastructure on the ground might be at risk. This need for discretion – for security or competitive advantage – is certainly one of the reasons why business’s engagement in peacebuilding or conflict mediation as a facilitator or information intermediary is rarely properly investigated or publicised. Short-term political ambitions only contribute to business’s caution when publicising any involvement in conflict prevention or resolution.

In terms of ‘economic’ peacebuilding, the private sector is encouraged to use its direct economic influence to promote peace. In terms of so-called ‘political’ peacebuilding, the private sector participates in initiatives such as ‘policy dialogues’ with local stakeholders. According to International Alert,11 this more political form of engagement includes participating in truth and reconciliation commissions; supporting weapons hand-ins; providing capacity-building support for local government, including judicial and police forces; supporting initiatives to attract foreign investment; and helping the local private sector build capacity and governance systems.

In a number of cases the private sector has decided to act as an agent of prevention in order to mitigate violence. One example is the campaign led by the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) and its 100,000 members following the 2008 electoral violence in that country. This violence caused major disruptions to the Kenyan tourism, tea and flower industries: exports fell by up to 40% in some areas of the country, while tourist inflows decreased by more than a third and job losses increased dramatically. The private sector decided to embark on a five-year corporate campaign to prevent possible violence ahead of the 2013 elections. Many initiatives were conducted, including a communication and training campaign in cooperation with civil society organisations, interfaith groups, developmental partners and the media. KEPSA is also reported to have supported legislative advocacy to tackle the causes of poverty in Kenyan society, lobbied key politicians to commit to peaceful elections, and pressured members of the media to avoid inflammatory content in their publications. Mobile operators also took steps to prevent their networks from being used to disseminate political hate speech. This local perspective on conflict transformation remains an important avenue for further research.

Business’s motivations to remain in violence- or conflict-affected zones

Assuming it has the possibility to leave a violent or conflict area, a company might still decide to remain in an unstable environment for four main reasons. Firstly, it might still be able to make a profit: costs related to the conflict do not outweigh the income the business can generate. While ensuring income for both the company and its local staff, the company thus contributes to preserving some kind of economic normality for local communities. Heineken, the Dutch brewer founded in 1864, imported its first beer into Africa in 1900. It is now present in 23 African countries. The current CEO, Jean-François van Boxmeer, worked in Rwanda in the early 1990s. He then moved to the DRC, where he helped to deal with the refugee crisis that followed the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.

Among the refugees were many of Heineken’s Rwandan employees and their families. As general manager of Bralima, Heineken’s DRC subsidiary, Van Boxmeer decided the company would help his former Rwandan employees, offering shelter and basic income. This meant that the company’s resources would go to humanitarian aid rather than running the company. But it was the only possible decision, Van Boxmeer says: “The larger the company, the larger the stakes. But you have a social contract. It’s one of the crucial elements for a leader to remember and live by.”12

Secondly, if the company represents the interests of a foreign state, it might need to balance the evolution of the relationship between its home country and its host government with regard to the conflict; this relationship will have an impact on its dealings with local authorities and its host government. It might not be in a position to balance the risk/opportunity equation, but the company will remain in the country for the purposes of its home government’s national interest. Total is one of the major world oil companies, and the French government has a 15% stake in it (down from 34% in 1992). Active in Burma/Myanmar since 1992, the company’s investments in the country are guaranteed by the French government through Coface (Compagnie française d’assurance pour le commerce extérieur). Over time, Total expanded its direct investments to become the largest foreign investor in Burma after all the major MNCs left the country following boycotts. In 2002 a case was filed against Total in Brussels by four Myanmar refugees for alleged complicity in violations of human rights in the course of the construction and operation of the Yadana Gas Pipeline. Belgian authorities dropped the case in 2008.13

Thirdly, the business might simply ‘hold the market’ and secure future resources or interests, as part of a long-term business strategy in the sector or region, and as mandated by its shareholders. And, finally, the company might decide to keep its operation active in a conflict zone to gain critical learning experience and ultimately improve the way in which it operates. When he sent the French army into Mali in 2013 to deal with an insurrection in the north of the country, President Hollande recommended that French citizens should leave the country, but hardly any left. In 2010, 60 French-owned subsidiaries and companies were in Mali, mainly in Bamako. These companies were active in mining (Vinci and Bouygues via subsidiaries), banks (BNP Paribas), telecoms (Alcatel-Lucent), transport (Air France), etc. Most of them considered that if security measures were put in place early, it was possible to continue working in near-normality; for instance, to limit travel and risk, employees could move into and live in the work site. Security procedures were submitted to the local French embassy for its future evacuation plans.

Some businesses are considered better peacebuilders than others, partly because of their exit options or the amount of capital invested. Extractive industries have few options in conflict-affected areas and require high investments over decades, but they also have powerful incentives to contribute to peace. Despite this economic stimulus, the extractive industry is often criticised for continuing to work in conflict-affected areas, while industries like tourism or telecoms are regarded as better suited to peacebuilding activities.

Engaging Business in Private Diplomacy

Would world affairs benefit from integrating the private sector into a clear UN mandate or as part of a new system of governance engaging traditional and new parties to multilateral diplomacy? First and foremost, business needs to recognise that conflicts provoke many emotions, “which in turn play a crucial role in the evolution of conflict”.14 If greed and grievance are the main sources of conflict, then government and business might very well share responsibility for a conflict. Poverty, social inequality, unemployment or divided identity politics fuel conflict, particularly when accompanied by illegal behaviour on the part of governments – through corruption or illegitimate private wealth accumulation, or when divisive political leaders plant the seeds of ethnic conflict. But this can also be the case when companies indulge in illegal or irresponsible behaviour.

Governments’ interests have always gone beyond their national borders, leading to foreign conquests and in many cases causing massacres and atrocities. These conquests were mostly conducted through either direct or indirect engagement. The private sector also contributed to these conquests, with the blessing of states, for better or worse, working with governments to export alleged liberalisation and democratisation. An example of direct military engagement is the 2003 invasion of Iraq. A more recent example of indirect engagement is when Nasdaq-listed companies were sent as emissaries to Iran in 201315.

Because of the perceived shortcomings of governments and their political agendas, as well as business’s considered failure to act responsibly, new actors have entered conflict-resolution or mediation efforts: the Crisis Management Initiative, the Carter Center’s Conflict Resolution Programme, the United States Institute of Peace and the Geneva-based Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue. These private organisations actively participate on behalf of governments in Track Two diplomacy (as part of unofficial government diplomacy), but also increasingly in Track One (official government) diplomacy initiatives, exploring new channels or contacts when the official lines of communication and negotiation have broken down. Their lack of a political mandate is recognised by all parties to mediation processes and is a welcome development in a peace market that has suffered from the presence of actors who promote peace, democracy and human rights, but do not strictly abide by the principles of impartiality, neutrality and independence. Mediators themselves mention the relevance of business actors in the two diplomacy tracks and the increasing importance of business actors as economic actors and facilitators in fragile states: “local business actors may have more leverage within track 2 processes than as part of a large internationally peace mediation process.”16 From the mediator’s point of view, “it is of little relevance whether (the business) becomes engaged in a peace process for personal business interests or for more altruistic interests in peace”.17

The United Nations has frequently supported the view that the private sector can be a powerful agent of change. However, in real life the UN still considers two actors to be relevant in conflict resolution and peacebuilding processes: civil society/NGOs and armed actors. Peace operations have never been expressly mandated to consult with business or to help regulate their impact on peace, including in countries where the UN Security Council (UNSC) has imposed trade sanctions. This (voluntary?) decision by the UN and UNSC not to work with pro-peace businesses indicates a wider institutional pattern: “It is irresponsible of UN practice to ... overlook the way in which these actors might help – or hinder – near and long-term conflict transformation.”18 Combining the resources, expertise and leverage of all possible actors would probably produce a more formidable force for peace.

The only reference to business being consulted can be found in the December 2005 founding mandate of the UN Peace Building Commission (PBC); since then, neither the PBC annual session reports nor working papers for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 mention encouraging the possibility of engaging with business in any peace process – with the exception of local business, which is merely reminded of its duty to pay taxes ...! One might consider that this is because business is publicity shy on topics it considers to be of political relevance. Or it might be because business has simply not wished to be actively involved in any PBC activities. The truth lies certainly somewhere between the PBC not knowing how to engage business and business not wishing to be seen as active in what it perceives to be part of the political arena. However, since perceptions effectively constitute reality, the PBC seems to be missing out on the engagement of an important stakeholder, while business is guilty of not supporting the peace efforts of intergovernmental organisations.

The feeling is that economic transformation might exclusively be the responsibility of policymakers. The absence of the private sector in the so-called inclusive approach to peacebuilding and the absence of engagement with businesses to generate improvements represent at best an omission and at worse ignorance on what important stakeholders can potentially contribute to building peace. As things stand today, except in communication and fund-raising events, the private sector is not considered as a sound partner in peace processes. There is hardly any formal record either in UNSC mandates or UN peace operations (MONUSCO, UNOCI, UNMISS, etc.) of consulting with commercial entities such as trade professionals, purchasers, suppliers or commercial agents. UN entities only address regulatory issues through civil society monitoring. The UNSC engages states to take the necessary measures to deal with natural resources-related conflicts and invites international financial institutions to contribute to establishing regulatory governance: it does not consult on, engage with or regulate this process, and does not deal with the issue directly.

Should the UNSC adopt a wider mandate, no doubt responsible companies active in natural resources would support conflict transformation efforts in post-conflict areas, but without an “exceptional transitional business regulatory role”.19 Business could also proactively initiate networks and engage actors or trade associations in the post-conflict business sector to adopt responsible peace-related business self-regulation.

Responsible leadership

A case can be made for a new kind of responsible leadership to support integrated and comprehensive peace processes through mediation. Through a collective, cooperative approach, the underlying causes of conflict could be addressed; such an approach would include companies, NGOs, labour organisations, and local and national governments. This approach might take time to set up and implement, but it would bring hope to and positive developments for all parties involved:

It will be argued that the factors affecting the issue are not within the control of companies – it is a matter for government. Or it will be claimed that the issue is not as widespread as suggested and that things are not really so bad. Or that it would require industry-wide effort to have an impact. Companies, like NGOs, are human organisations and they suffer from the natural conservatism of all human organisations – they like to carry on doing what they have been doing successfully for years and tend to resist any change to a smoothly running system.20

Understanding possible informal engagements among political actors, mediators and business, as well as the role of each industry within the economy, must be explored in order to influence the overall process. One of the most successful ways in which business can support peace has been through trade associations, including businesspeople from both sides of the conflict. Mediators praise their direct or indirect, pragmatic, economics-focused, bridge-builder approach21 and consider that it is relevant to include business actors, depending on the context or the stage of the mediation process: early in the process as part of formal Track One initiatives or on their own initiative in a Track Two or Track Three process; during the negotiation phase, using their knowledge of economic development, trade or employment; and/or during the implementation phase, for instance by providing suitable jobs to former combatants, thus providing them with gainful options other than armed violence, or hiring people from all sides of the conflict, thus contributing to breaking down stereotypes and biases.22

Facilitating informal, off-the-record talks between mediators and businesses is also a route that needs to be systematically explored. The inspiration for these informal/briefing talks between business and mediators is as much about rebuilding trust as building knowledge and understanding on both sides. For instance, the private sector was successfully involved at the Track One level in the recent successful negotiation process between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), playing an important informal role throughout these negotiations. Some businesspeople were even members of the negotiation team. The government, the FARC and the business sector themselves welcomed the private sector’s engagement: “Business leaders held off-the-record meetings of multi-sectorial groups in order to generate space for developing personal relationships.”23 Members of the business sector sponsored and were involved in public demonstrations and activities to protest against the conflict and lobbied on numerous public occasions for a peaceful settlement. Business representatives also established contact with an imprisoned leader of the other main Colombian armed opposition group, the National Liberation Army, “leading to the signing of a goodwill accord pledging the parties to seek a solution to the Colombian crisis”.24

The first major work on business-based conflict transformation is less than 20 years old.25 The World Bank has found that the first thing that must be dealt with after the restoration of peace and the examination of various fundamental social issues is the question of establishing a framework for restoring business.26 The past decade has seen an increase in initiatives to address a possible multi-stakeholder approach to conflict transformation, including MNCs and local businesses.27 On the basis of these principles, further initiatives have been launched such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development principles on MNCs and the International Bill of Human Rights of the International Finance Corporation, which is the World Bank’s lending arm.

But the debate is still largely dominated by policy built on examples of businesses sustaining and fuelling violent conflict – largely reported by civil society and raised as banners to condemn all businesses indiscriminately. Corporate-bashing (or brand-bashing) - as NGO-bashing - are probably not the most promising strategies to achieve inclusive dialogue. A new type of engagement is needed to avoid the institutionalisation of business models such as Greenpeace’s28, which replicate bipolar models of good versus evil. The misinterpretation of how companies perceive a peace process has, for instance, led to the publication of some negatively oriented guidance for corporate engagement in conflict transformation, i.e. “good corporate practice is about negative peace and what companies should not do”.29 There is nevertheless a growing interest in constructive ways of including companies in conflict management and peace support, recognising what business has achieved as well as understanding business’s perspectives on the potential and limits of corporate engagement.

In “Money Makers as Peace Makers? Business Actors in Mediation Process”,30 swisspeace identifies 14 case studies where private sector efforts complemented those of the public and civil society sectors. These were in Colombia, Cyprus, the DRC, El Salvador, Guatemala, Aceh/Indonesia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nepal, Northern Ireland, Somalia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Sudan. There is an obvious need for more research from the business perspective, and particularly on the governance of MNCs and the role that MNCs’ local subsidiaries can play in violence prevention and conflict resolution.

Conclusion

This paper has focused on cases where the private sector supported private and/or multilateral diplomacy. Such cases indicate that building trust and engaging both traditional and new parties to peace talks might allow a better understanding of a conflict resolution and peacebuilding process and improve cooperation. The paper also explored ways in which world affairs would benefit from integrating the private sector into peacebuilding and suggested routes for a truly inclusive approach to advance peace processes.

A successful peace agreement often brings peace dividends. Liberia’s economy grew at an annual rate of 11% after peace was achieved, South Africa is still one of Africa’s most advanced economies, Aceh has become a source of economic and political innovation for its region, Mozambique has experienced an average growth of 7% (except for 2013 and 2014), and Northern Ireland experienced economic growth of 3.2% in 2005, almost twice as much as the United Kingdom as a whole. But the international community has also engaged in a number of unsuccessful attempts to build sustainable peace in war-stricken areas/ countries such as Bougainville (2001), Liberia (2003), and Sudan and South Sudan (2005). Despite comprehensive peace agreements and going through the same path of security building, governance building and transitional justice as successful peacemaking efforts, all these areas/ countries experienced outbreaks of instability and violence, in particular during elections.

Less than half of the peace agreements referred to above included an economic dimension in their settlement:31 there was no mention of reinvigorating post-war economies, no ways of supporting the reconstruction of a local private sector, no plans to revive a war-torn society, and no reference to economic reforms. If state‐building must rightly remain an internally driven process, economic recovery remains a turning point between success and failure in peacebuilding, because failure retards development and holds back foreign investment. Surely it is time for comprehensive peace agreements to become truly comprehensive and include the private sector as one of the most important sources of the widespread economic empowerment that is needed to mitigate the effects of conflict and violence?

Notes

1 An NGO, also known as a civil society organisation, is a non-governmental organisation even though its funding might be provided by a government. An NPO uses its extra funds for the purposes of the organisation, rather than dividing it among the shareholders and owners of the organisation. Examples of NPOs are universities, trade unions or charitable organisations. However, an NPO might operate in conjunction with a government.

          DR Congo declares end of Ebola outbreak   
The Congolese health minister on Saturday declared the end of an Ebola outbreak in a remote northeastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo which caused four deaths in the area.
          WATANZANIA 18 WATEKWA NA WAASI CONGO   
Dar es Salaam. Waasi wanaodaiwa wa Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo (DRC) wamewateka madereva 21, wakiwamo Watanzania 18 wanaofanya kazi kwenye kampuni ya malori ya mizigo ya Alistair ya nchini.Akizungumza na gazeti la Mwananchi jana, meneja usimamizi wa Tanzania na DRC wa kampuni ya Alistair, Anna Joyce Mbise alisema madereva hao walitekwa asubuhi ya Juni 29, baada ya mapambano kati ya askari wa Serikali ya Congo na waasi hao.“Kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya madereva hao ni kwamba askari wa Serikali waliokuwa wanawasindikiza kabla ya msafara kuvamiwa, walizidiwa kwenye mashambulizi hayo ndipo wakatekwa,” alisema Mbise na kuongeza:
“Wametueleza kuwa hakuna aliyejeruhiwa katika tukio hilo, waasi wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vyema, lakini gari zetu tatu zimeharibika kwa risasi kutokana na mashambulizi hayo,” alisema.
Alisema kampuni hiyo imewasiliana na viongozi husika wa Serikali kwa kuandika barua Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, ili wasaidie madereva hao kuachiwa huru wakiwa salama.“Tumejawa na hofu kuhusu usalama wao, kwani tunaamini kwamba askari wa jeshi la Serikali lazima wanajipanga kurejea kupambana ili kulikomboa eneo hilo, hapo tuna wasiwasi na usalama wa madereva hao ,” alisema.
Mratibu wa Shirikisho la Wasafirishaji Afrika Mashariki (FEARTA), Emmanuel Kakuyu alisema taarifa walizonazo ni kwamba madereva hao wamekumbwa na mkasa huo katika eneo la kijiji cha Lulimba kilichopo kati ya Ziwa Tanganyika na Kindu Manyema.
Alisema waasi hawa hawajawadhuru madereva hao, lakini alifafanua kuwa madereva watatu kati ya 21 wanatoka Uganda.“Watekaji wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vizuri ikiwamo kuwahakikishia usalama wao wakidai kwamba hawana ugomvi nao, bali wana ugomvi na Serikali ya Congo,” alisema.Umbali kati ya Lulimba na Kigoma ni kilomita 448, lakini ili ufike Lulimba ni lazima ulizunguke Ziwa Tanganyika upande wa mashariki mwa DRC.

Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa dawati la Afrika katika Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Suleiman Saleh alijibu kwa kifupi kwamba wamepokea taarifa za utekaji huo na tayari wameanza kushughulikia.

          QUELLO CHE NESSUN POLITICO VI DICE SULL'IMMIGRAZIONE E CHE INVECE SERVIREBBE AD AFFRONTARLA 3za ...   

Quando il maresciallo Mobutu, dittatore sanguinario, oramai sconfitto dalla ribellione, fuggì dallo Zaire, il suo paese era in preda alla miseria e ad un'inflazione da capogiro. Se una donna voleva comprare un chilo di pane aveva due problemi. Innanzitutto trovarlo e poi portarsi dietro due chili di banconote. La moneta era divenuta carta straccia ed i prezzi delle cose più semplici si facevano in miliardi. Lo Zaire, oggi Repubblica Democratica del Congo, il paese più ricco di materie prime del mondo, vero scandalo geologico per la presenza di minerali rarissimi e strategici, aveva poi uno spaventoso debito estero. Il suo ammontare corrispondeva perfettamente alle ricchezze depositate all'estero da Mobutu e dalla sua famiglia.
Mobutu era salito al potere grazie ad un colpo di stato organizzato dalla Cia, e sostenuto da Stati Uniti, Francia e Belgio, all'indomani dell'indipendenza del paese. Il primo ministro voluto dal popolo, Patrice Lumumba, intellettuale finissimo e campione delle libertà, era stato prima arrestato e poi fatto a pezzi. Il controllo delle ricchezze dello Zaire doveva restare in mani sicure, quelle di sempre, e Mobutu era e fu un servo fedele di quegli interessi. In cambio gli si concesse di poter rubare a più non posso e lo si proclamò campione della libertà, amico dell'Occidente. Lo si ricevette in pompa magna in tutte le corti occidentali, venne finanziato ed armato perchè ogni rivolta fosse spenta nel sangue.
Di storie come quella di Mobutu ce ne sono tante, troppe, in giro per l'Africa. Ancora oggi. Dittatori e satrapi in busta paga dei paesi occidentali, servi dei loro interessi e finanziatori delle campagne elettorali dei loro amici in Francia e Stati Uniti. L'Africa resta povera e sceglie di fuggire.
C'è in giro qualche forza politica disposta, invece di far demagogia e di raccontare di aver voglia di aiutare gli africani a casa loro, pronta a metter fine a questa occupazione militare dell'Africa e al suo saccheggio? C'è qualche forza politica pronta a denunciare banche ed istituzioni finanziarie di casa nostra responsabili di ospitare e proteggere le immense ricchezze trafugate agli africani dai governanti corrotti loro imposti e, soprattutto, a costringerle a restituire il maltolto?

          As he waits for free-agent call, Serge Ibaka slams 'rumors' that 'hurt people'

Serge Ibaka’s one of the top players available in the NBA’s free agent class of 2017. But while some of the other big names in the group have already locked down lucrative long-term deals, the former Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors big man is still waiting for his market to shake out.

[Fantasy Football is open! Sign up now]

That could be because only one top power forward — Blake Griffin, new recipient of a five-year, $173 million pact — has committed to a new deal, and there are still some things to sort out. (If and when Paul Millsap makes his choice, things will likely heat up for Ibaka, as both fit the profile for teams looking for defensively versatile stretch fours.) It could also, however, be because some prospective suitors have concerns about Ibaka that stretch beyond the boundaries of the court.

These concerns, and the rumors that spark them, have been discussed to varying degrees of openness in the NBA community over the years, and were given voice recently by ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Bleacher Report’s Jordan Brenner during a chat on Bleacher Report’s “The Full 48” podcast:

Brenner: I’ve always been a Serge fan. There are few guys who can provide rim protection and 3-point shooting, purportedly, the way he can. He seems to be a player built for today’s game. And yet, he didn’t elevate Toronto in the way many of us thought and hoped, and you know, I don’t know if … there’s always been the rumblings that he’s actually older than he is listed.

Lowe: Look, as uncomfortable as it is to say that, the league — not the league office, [but rather NBA] teams — believe that he’s older than his listed age [of 27 years old]. So whether he is or not, and what are the ethical issues of saying that, I don’t know. But it affects the free agency market for him.

Brenner: We’re not practicing NBA birtherism here, but that is the scuttlebutt.

That scuttlebutt is nothing new. Questions about whether Ibaka might be older than his listed age have been bandied about for years.

The rumor has been cited as “a source of speculation” in reports about Ibaka’s trade value, often attached to a suggestion that a team chose not to pull the trigger on an Ibaka deal because said team didn’t want to give up the farm for a player “whose chronological age might be a bit more advanced than his listed age.” It has also been presented as a potential explanation for “why his game has plateaued over the past few years, during what should be the prime of his career,” with Ibaka having transitioned over the course of his eight NBA seasons from a power-dunking, board-crashing paint patroller to a player who more typically spaces the floor on offense and gets his blocks sliding over from the weak side in help defense.

Ibaka’s heard this all before. As he sat in unrestricted free agency for the first time in his career, waiting for offers that might be slower in coming in part because of it, he decided to say something about it.

He issued a public statement via Twitter on Saturday that didn’t specifically address the age issue, but rather hit at the broader issue of rumor-mongering and general accountability:

The full text of Ibaka’s five-paragraph statement:

I am proud of where I come from and of my heritage. I am also very proud of the hard work I put to arrive to where I am right now as a basketball player.

I am very disappointed with the small part of society that spreads rumors and creates news based on stereotypes and without any proof. I’m sad that to this day there are still prejudices based on your origin and, as Africans, sometimes we need to take a stand.

I was born in the capital of the Republic of Congo, Brazzaville. A city with a population bigger than 1 million. A city with hospitals, a civil registry and an administration. I was born in a caring, loving and united family. I was not born in the jungle.

I know we live in a fast news world, where rumors and scoops rule, but I think media should take their responsibility seriously when talking about important matters that can hurt people. I know who I am and where I come from, and so do the people that really know me.

I’m sad that many people will have read a rumor and will have made a false assumption that can last forever, while they maybe will not read what I’m writing now. What’s sure is that, no matter what, nobody can take away from me the pride for my origins and the love that I have for basketball.

Ibaka notes that he’s not alone in facing these questions. Other African players, including Thon Maker, Bismack Biyombo and Dikembe Mutombo, have had to deal with similar rumors. So, too, have some non-African players, like China’s Yi Jianlian and Turkey’s Ersan Ilyasova. Two recent NBA draft picks were found to have been older than their listed age: Tanguy Ngombo of Qatar, whom the Minnesota Timberwolves drafted back in 2011, and Shabazz Muhammad of the United States, also drafted by the Wolves, in 2013.

Whether the lack of immediate hot-and-heavy interest in locking Ibaka down stems from the age rumor, concerns about having watched him generally struggle to make the sort of game-changing impact in Toronto that many had hoped, or something else, it remains to be seen what kind of market will develop for the Congolese shot-blocker. Michael Grange of Sportsnet in Toronto reported Saturday that the Raptors are “confident” they can bring Ibaka back with a new deal, though the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat also reportedly have interest in his services.

Ibaka ranks No. 7 on The Vertical’s Fab 50 Free Agents list for the class of 2017, and stands as the fifth best available free agent now that Stephen Curry and Griffin have come off the board.

          Reseña: Cress (Crónicas lunares #3) - Marissa Meyer   
Título: Cress (Crónicas lunares #3).
Autora: Marissa Meyer.
Editorial: V&R Editoras.
Precio: $295 MXN.
Disponible en México

Cinder | Scarlet | Cress | Winter
Fairest | Stars Above | Wires and Nerve

Sinopsis:
Cinder, Thorne, Scarlet y Wolf son los fugitivos más buscados. Juntos, planean destronar a la reina Levana y destruir su armada. Todas sus esperanzas están puestas en Cress, una joven hacker que se encuentra atrapada en un satélite. Durante roda su vida, estuvo rodeada de pantallas, observando, espiando. Lo único con lo que siempre soñó fue con ser libre.
Y finalmente logra escapar... pero el precio que deberá pagar es más alto de lo que ella imagina. Mientras tanto, Levana está empecinada en que nada ni nadie arruine su boda con el emperador Kai... ¿Qué será capaz de hacer con tal de cumplir su objetivo?

Opinión:
No dudo ni un instante en asegurar que la saga Crónicas lunares es una de las mejores historias de ciencia ficción juvenil con las que he tenido la dicha de toparme. Todo en ella es asombroso: los escenarios, el contexto, la narrativa y, sobre todo, los personajes. Cada uno de ellos juega un papel clave dentro de la trama central y la forma en que la autora logra entrelazar sus vidas en una intrincada red de misterio y aventura crean conjuntamente esta obra de arte.

Todos recordamos a Cress desde su aparición en el primer libro, ya que fue ella quien advirtió a Cinder sobre los planes maestros de la reina Levana y prácticamente fue quien la envió a irrumpir en el baile real. Cosa que como sabemos, no terminó del todo bien. Pero, ¿qué fue de esta curiosa chica de largos cabellos dorados? Pues es tiempo de que Rapunzel cuente su historia. Cress es una joven que ha pasado toda su vida confinada en un satélite debido a sus grandes aptitudes para la tecnología, jamás ha tenido contacto con nadie más que su ama y nunca ha disfrutado de la vida. Desde su satélite, que gira sin parar alrededor de la Tierra, se encarga de interceptar toda la información pertinente para la reina. Incluso espía todos los movimientos del príncipe gracias a dispositivos que han sido implantados en todo el palacio. Sin embargo, Cress decide que ha sido suficiente y no tiene ninguna intención de seguir colaborando con la reina, por lo que le cae como anillo al dedo una transmisión por parte del grupo de Cinder pidiéndole ayuda y ofreciéndose a rescatarla de su prisión de una vez por todas. Pero obviamente esto ni de lejos iba a ser algo sencillo de realizar. De un momento a otro, los planes de toda la tripulación se ven arruinados y nuestros protagonistas son forzados a separarse. Por lo que ahora deberán reunirse lo antes posible para poder concretar la más peligrosa de las misiones hasta ahora: detener la boda real.

En esta tercera entrega de la saga presenciaremos una inmensa evolución por parte de todos los personajes que ya conocemos y amamos. Sus vidas llegarán a un punto de inflexión que los obligará a cambiar sus formas de actuar e incluso de pensar. Y todo este conflicto de emociones el lector lo presenciará de una manera tan vívida debido a la forma de narrar los acontecimientos, moviéndose de personaje a personaje para contar con un panorama más amplio de la trama y su desarrollo. Si no fuera así, no se disfrutaría de la misma manera. La historia sería carente de sentido. Y esto se refleja en el aumento de páginas con relación a los primeros dos.

Por otra parte, con Cinder y Scarlet la autora nos tenía más que acostumbrados a las protagonistas femeninas rudas e independientes, que no temen ensuciarse las manos y pelear a puño limpio para defenderse. Pues digamos que Cress se encuentra en otra categoría. En un punto completamente opuesto a Cinder y Scarlet. Debido a que jamás tuvo contacto con otras personas, ella es alguien muy inocente, crédula y, vamos a decirlo, débil. Llora, sufre, se acongoja y babea sin parar por el chico guapo. Características de lo más aberrantes en mi opinión y las que más odio en las protagonistas. Lo bueno es que al menos ella es muy brillante. Su inteligencia sobrepasa a los demás y a la hora de la acción es un punto indispensable para el éxito. Además, el contexto en el que se desarrolló su personaje la hace cien por ciento creíble y es muy sencillo ponerse en su lugar y entender qué la impulsa a actuar y por qué es así.

Aunque en principio Cress no sea alguien que se haya ganado mi afecto al instante, es una personaje única y su papel dentro de la historia es asombroso. Sin mencionar el descomunal avance que tienen el resto de los protagonistas y la trama. Acción y aventura escurren en cada página y harán imposible soltar el libro hasta terminarlo. Preparando de esta manera el camino y sirviendo como puente hacia la recta final de una de las sagas juveniles mejor escritas en los últimos años. No pueden quedarse sin leerla.

          Watanzania 18 watekwa na waasi wa Congo   
Waasi wanaodaiwa wa Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo (DRC) wamewateka madereva 21, wakiwamo Watanzania 18 wanaofanya kazi kwenye kampuni ya malori ya mizigo ya Alistair ya nchini.

Meneja usimamizi wa Tanzania na DRC wa kampuni ya Alistair , Anna Joyce Mbise aliliambia gazaeti la Mwananchi  jana kuwa  madereva hao walitekwa asubuhi ya Juni 29, baada ya mapambano kati ya askari wa Serikali ya Congo na waasi hao.

“Kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya madereva hao ni kwamba askari wa Serikali waliokuwa wanawasindikiza kabla ya msafara kuvamiwa, walizidiwa kwenye mashambulizi hayo ndipo wakatekwa,” alisema Mbise na kuongeza:

“Wametueleza kuwa hakuna aliyejeruhiwa katika tukio hilo, waasi wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vyema, lakini gari zetu tatu zimeharibika kwa risasi kutokana na mashambulizi hayo,” alisema.

Alisema kampuni hiyo imewasiliana na viongozi husika wa Serikali kwa kuandika barua Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, ili wasaidie madereva hao kuachiwa huru wakiwa salama.

“Tumejawa na hofu kuhusu usalama wao, kwani tunaamini kwamba askari wa jeshi la Serikali lazima wanajipanga kurejea kupambana ili kulikomboa eneo hilo, hapo tuna wasiwasi na usalama wa madereva hao ,” alisema.

Mratibu wa Shirikisho la Wasafirishaji Afrika Mashariki (FEARTA), Emmanuel Kakuyu alisema taarifa walizonazo ni kwamba madereva hao wamekumbwa na mkasa huo katika eneo la kijiji cha Lulimba kilichopo kati ya Ziwa Tanganyika na Kindu Manyema.

Alisema waasi hawa hawajawadhuru madereva hao, lakini alifafanua kuwa madereva watatu kati ya 21 wanatoka Uganda.

“Watekaji wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vizuri ikiwamo kuwahakikishia usalama wao wakidai kwamba hawana ugomvi nao, bali wana ugomvi na Serikali ya Congo,” alisema.

Umbali kati ya Lulimba na Kigoma ni kilomita 448, lakini ili ufike Lulimba ni lazima ulizunguke Ziwa Tanganyika upande wa mashariki mwa DRC.

Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa dawati la Afrika katika Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Suleiman Saleh alijibu kwa kifupi kwamba wamepokea taarifa za utekaji huo na tayari wameanza kushughulikia.

          Nigeria assumes chairmanship, AU Peace and Security Council   



Nigeria has officially assumed the one-month rotational chairmanship of the African Union Peace and Security Council (PSC).


Nigeria’s Permanent Representative to the AU, Bankole Adeoye, took over from Susan Sikaneta, the Permanent Representative of Zambia, who held the Presidency for the month of June.

Adeyemo, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Addis Asaba said under Nigeria’s leadership, the council would focus on the implementation of AU’s Master Road Map of Practical Steps to Silence the Guns in Africa by 2020.

“Equally, the Council will build on the substantial progress being recorded by the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in the fight against terrorism and seek to gain better understanding of the root causes of the conflict.

“Also to be considered by the Council during this period are the political and security situations in Guinea Bissau, Somalia, South Sudan, Mali/Sahel and Libya.

“Essentially, Nigeria as chairperson of the Council will prioritise the open debate by the AU Member States on Child soldiers / out of school children in armed conflict situations.”

He said with the support of other members of the Council, Nigeria would use its month-long presidency to actively promote sub-regional and continental peace and security in line with the principles of the AU Peace and Security Council Protocol and the mandate of the Council.

NAN reports that in view of Nigeria’s leadership role at the sub-regional and continental levels, the country has sustained its membership of this most vital mechanism since its founding in 2002.


The Peace and Security Council is the primary organ of the African Union, which is patterned along the UN Security Council to enforce Union decisions, particularly in matters relating to maintenance of peace and security.

Members of the Council are elected by the Assembly of the AU so as to reflect regional balance within Africa, as well as a variety of other criteria, including capacity to contribute militarily and financially to the Union.

The Council is composed of 15 countries, of which five are elected to three-year term, and 10 to two-year term.

The current members of the PSC are Nigeria, Algeria, Botswana, Burundi, Chad, Congo, Egypt, Niger, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Togo, Uganda and Zambia.

1. Intro (Useless Existence) 2. Gloom 3. Never-Ending Unsteadiness 4. Stuck In The Past Ruins 5. Dying (Life Neglected сover)

La escena de Costa Rica parece estar atravesando un periodo de actividad francamente fructífero, ya que si no me equivoco esta es la quinta banda de ese país que me toca reseñar.
En este caso, y el nombre no deja dudas, Black Whispers hace black metal. Y black del más negro, negativo y depresivo que se pueda esperar.
Cinco tracks (uno de ellos es un cover), lentos, arrastrados, oscuros, que no hacen más que propagar sensaciones de pesadumbre y congoja, todo matizados por las desesperadas líneas vocales que no hacen más que realzar el producto final. Nadie esperaría voces alegres sobre semejante base instrumental, no creen?
Poco más que decir, los amantes del género saben de qué hablo, no hay felicidad aquí. Black Whispers quiere sumergirnos en la más tenebrosa y triste de las profundidades. Y LO LOGRA.

Etonnant criminel de guerre présumé que ce Kalev Mutond. Accusé par l’Union européenne d’avoir « planifié ou dirigé des actes qui constituent de graves violations des droits humains en RDC », le fonctionnaire demeure droit dans ses bottes, et prêt à tout pour se maintenir au pouvoir, à la tête d’une sorte d’Etat parallèle au service du régime de Kabila. « Ma mission est de protéger les institutions de la République, dont fait partie le chef de l’Etat. » Maître espion et maître du jeu. (LemondeAfrique.fr) VIVE LE SOULEVEMENT POPULAIRE EBOULEMENT FINAL. LA LUTA CONTINUA. LA VICTORIA E CERTA. INGETA
          Comment on CONGOMIKILI: 30 juin, Kabila absent, Sindika et Katumbi ba pupoli ye sans pitié! by Combattant Résistant de l'Ombre   
La politique, Kalev Mutond la suit et l’influence. On l’a aperçu au siège de la Cenco interférer discrètement dans le fastidieux dialogue politique organisé sous l’égide de l’Eglise catholique congolaise. « Je les avais prévenus qu’il ne fallait pas s’énerver. Mais les politiques, quand ils parlent de leurs pieds, leurs problèmes sont aux cheveux, se moque-t-il sans cacher son mépris. Ils n’ont pas pris deux minutes pour la Constitution, pas cinq minutes pour le calendrier électoral, ce qu’ils veulent, c’est des postes. » Un an plus tôt, il était en mission en Europe pour convaincre l’opposition d’accepter de dialoguer avec la majorité présidentielle. Alors fragilisé par la maladie, il a refusé le traitement présidentiel médical en Belgique pour se faire opérer à Kinshasa. Puis il a repris les négociations secrètes avec l’opposition. « Sécuriser les institutions » Le Katangais de Kolwezi, volontiers hâbleur aime à se draper dans l’uniforme du grand commis de l’Etat. Il s’amuse de la sombre réputation de l’ANR, que l’opposition comme la communauté internationale accusent de s’être mué en police politique. « Toutes ces critiques venues de l’extérieur, cela me motive pour continuer à défendre mon pays. L’ANR est un obstacle à ceux qui veulent abattre la RDC et je vais travailler avec autant plus d’ardeur à sécuriser les institutions. » Depuis, la guerre en cours au Kasaï s’est révélée au monde : plus de 3 000 personnes y ont été tuées, selon l’Eglise catholique congolaise, et 2 millions déplacées, selon les Nations unies. Ce conflit politico-ethnique s’est embrasé et, là encore, Kalev Mutond est soupçonné d’en tirer les ficelles meurtrières. Le régime de Joseph Kabila a tout fait pour entraver les enquêtes indépendantes censées démêler l’écheveau des exactions commises par les milices Kamwina Nsapu... et par les forces armées du pays. Avec succès. Lors de la 35e session du Conseil des droits de l’homme de l’ONU qui s’est tenue à Genève, Kinshasa, soutenu par le groupe des pays africains, a fait plier les Occidentaux. Il n’y aura pas d’enquête indépendante. Les autorités congolaises ont obtenu de garder la main sur une enquête conjointe avec l’ONU. Joseph Kabila, son homme lige et les autres caciques du régime restent maîtres de la situation. Kalev Mutond coopérera-t-il pleinement avec l’ONU pour faire la lumière sur les crimes perpétrés au Kasaï par les soldats et les miliciens ? Il sourit. un rire brutal, carnassier et en même temps distingué toujours sous contrôle. Kalev Mutond est de cette race d’homme qui a appris à ne rien laisser transparaître. Pas d’émotions. Pas de regrets. En soldat loyal de Kabila. Pour lui, les violences qui ravagent le centre du pays mais aussi l’est ne sont le fait que d’une ingérence de puissances étrangères qui veulent déstabiliser le pays. « Regardez, les Bantous et les Pygmées ne s’étaient jamais affrontés. Mais des ONG anglo-saxonnes attisent les braises du conflit en montant la tête des Pygmées, leur disant qu’ils sont mal traités et cela dégénère. »
          Comment on CONGOMIKILI: 30 juin, Kabila absent, Sindika et Katumbi ba pupoli ye sans pitié! by Combattant Résistant de l'Ombre   
Des coffres forts devenus des cellules Kalev Mutond reçoit dans sa forteresse aux murs rosés érigée en plein centre de Kinshasa. Un bâtiment austère qui fut l’ancien siège de la Banque centrale. Certains des coffres forts sont devenus des cellules. Son vaste bureau est un petit condensé du système Kabila dont il est l’un des piliers. On distingue sur une étagère deux portraits de lui avec le richissime homme d’affaires israélien controversé, Dan Gertler, suspecté de piller les ressources de la RDC et de partager les dividendes avec le clan présidentiel. Derrière ces cadres, on aperçoit des dossiers brûlants : « Kasaï », « Katumbi »… « Moïse Katumbi est un ami. La dernière fois qu’il est venu à Kinshasa, je lui avais conseillé de rester loyal au président. Mais les amis n’écoutent pas toujours les conseils », sourit l’espiègle fonctionnaire. Passé à l’opposition, l’ancien gouverneur du Katanga, autrefois intime de Joseph Kabila et de Dan Gertler, est désormais traqué par la justice congolaise, probablement influencée par « Kalev ». Après avoir fui le pays, Moïse Katumbi, qui s’était déclaré candidat à la présidentielle, a d’abord été condamné à trois ans de prison en juin 2016, dans une affaire de spoliation immobilière après avoir été accusé d’« atteinte à la sûreté intérieure et extérieure de l’Etat » en ayant recours à des prétendus mercenaires américains. Comme pour appuyer son propos, « Kalev » montre un rapport d’enquête avec, en page de garde, la photo de l’Américain Darryl Lewis, un ancien soldat des forces spéciales qui fut le conseiller en sécurité de Moïse Katumbi, « un tireur d’élite », insiste Kalev Mutond, entré en RDC avec un visa de travailleur agricole. « Nous l’avons arrêté et nous l’avons bien traité, il nous a presque remerciés », jure l’homme, qui dit avoir mené lui-même les interrogatoires en présence de diplomates américains. Une version contredite par Darryl Lewis qui a porté plainte contre Kalev Mutond aux Etats-Unis. Les évêques de la Conférence épiscopale nationale du Congo (Cenco) ont qualifié ce traitement judiciaire de « mascarade », évoquant un « règlement de comptes politique ».

L’assertion, devenue religion dans la capitale congolaise, a hérissé durant des mois le Quai d’Orsay. « Kalev Mutond ne bénéficie d’aucune protection de notre part », martèle, agacé, un haut fonctionnaire du ministère des affaires étrangères, conspuant les rumeurs qui entourent le personnage et brouillent la politique française en RDC. « Que Kalev arrête de laisser croire qu’il est protégé, s’agace encore un diplomate français. Un jour, il pourrait avoir à répondre de ses actes. » En attendant, à la tête de plusieurs milliers d’hommes, « Kalev » continue de terroriser « les ennemis de l’Etat ». Au sens très large du terme. Pour lui, les jeunes militants de mouvements citoyens comme Lucha ou Filimbi, ne sont rien d’autres que des « terroristes ». Ses services les harcèlent, les traquent, les emprisonnent. Kalev Mutond se dit convaincu qu’ils sont soutenus financièrement par des puissances étrangères, comme les Etats-Unis, pour créer les conditions qui permettraient à une foule citoyenne de renverser le régime. Il assure avoir des preuves qu’il accumule pour ensuite les utiliser comme des atouts dans les négociations diplomatiques. Il compte bien tenir tête à ces Britanniques et à ces Américains qui ont soutenu le président rwandais, Paul Kagamé, couvert ses crimes et espionné les télécommunications de tout l’appareil d’Etat congolais, y compris Joseph Kabila. Et ce durant les complexes négociations, qu’il aime tant raconter, pour la reddition des troupes rebelles à l’est de la RDC en 2009 ou en 2013. De Goma à Matadi, tout le monde craint, méprise ou respecte Kalev Mutond et ses redoutables agents qui quadrillent le plus grand pays d’Afrique francophone. « L’ANR est la seule agence d’Etat qui fonctionne en RDC », dit une blague populaire. Pourtant, des diplomates occidentaux ne prédisaient pas un grand avenir à son patron. « Ce n’est pas la peine de perdre du temps avec lui, car il n’est pas aimé de Kabila et il sera éliminé disaient les Européens il y a une dizaine d’années, rapporte un fin connaisseur de l’Afrique centrale pour moquer les erreurs d’analyses des diplomates occidentaux. Je l’ai vu à l’œuvre dans des négociations régionales sensibles. Il est au côté de Kabila depuis au moins 1998 et désormais il est sans doute l’un des plus forts du premier cercle du président. »

LU POUR LES VRAIS KONGOLAIS. RDC : Kalev Mutond, le redoutable maître espion de Kinshasa Accusé de répression brutale et visé par les sanctions de l’Union européenne et des Etats-Unis, Kalev Mutond reste l’incontournable pilier du régime de Joseph Kabila. « Je me fous des sanctions. » Impassible, Kalev Mutond veut donner l’impression qu’il snobe la communauté internationale. L’administrateur général de l’Agence nationale de renseignement (ANR) figure sur la dernière liste de sanctions de l’Union européenne rendue publique en mai. Cette fois, il n’y a pas échappé. Nul n’est plus dupe sur le rôle central du maître espion de Kinshasa dans les répressions par les forces de sécurité des manifestants, dans les emprisonnements de militants et d’opposants politiques critiques à l’égard du président Joseph Kabila qui s’accroche au pouvoir. « Je n’ai pas une aiguille aux Etats-Unis et aucun projet de voyage en Amérique du Nord ou en Europe », dit-il de sa voix froide et maîtrisée. En décembre 2016, les Etats-Unis avaient déjà décrété des sanctions à son encontre. Les Européens ont tardé, louvoyé même à la demande des Français qui ont souhaité épargner leur interlocuteur, leur source, leur partenaire pour les affaires délicates. Puis ils ont cédé. « Je continue à discuter avec tout le monde, c’est mon travail. Même au plus fort de la crise avec le Rwanda, je continuais à appeler mes homologues à Kigali », précise le chef des services secrets congolais. Et de préciser en habile provocateur : « Je m’entends toujours bien avec les services sécuritaires français. » « Bourreau du régime Kabila » La ligne française en République démocratique du Congo (RDC) était encore claire en juin 2016. « Accompagner le pouvoir de Kabila jusqu’au 19 décembre [2016, date de la fin du dernier mandat du chef d’Etat] puis récupérer ses éléments les plus importants pour favoriser la transition et des élections », résumait un diplomate sur place. Quid du traitement réservé à Kalev Mutond, « le bourreau du régime Kabila », selon des militants congolais ? « Il fait partie de ceux avec qui il faudra négocier l’alternance », rétorquait le diplomate. Un statut à part pour un homme craint tant par les opposants à Joseph Kabila que par les pontes de son régime. Tous savent qu’il ne rend de comptes qu’au chef de l’Etat. Le 12 décembre 2016, Washington a interdit toute transaction avec cet homme, ont ordonné le gel de ses comptes aux Etats-Unis pour son « rôle dans l’empêchement du processus démocratique », « la surveillance, l’arrestation et la torture d’opposants » et d’éventuelles « exportations illégales de minerais ». Est-ce la ligne française qui est parvenue à éviter à Kalev Mutond de figurer sur la liste des personnalités congolaises sanctionnées par l’Union européenne publiée le même jour ? Des diplomates occidentaux en poste à Kinshasa en sont persuadés, comme des hauts fonctionnaires congolais. « Il faudra un jour qu’ils s’expliquent là-dessus », assure un négociateur international en poste à Kinshasa.

          Serge Ibaka will return to the Raptors, and Kyle Lowry could be next

The Toronto Raptors and Serge Ibaka have agreed to terms on a three-year, $65 million deal that will keep the free-agent big man north of the border, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ibaka’s contract suggests the Raptors could also be nearing an agreement to retain free-agent point guard Kyle Lowry, as USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt indicated late Saturday night. Re-signing Ibaka and Lowry suggests Toronto will be back in the hunt for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference next season.

[Follow Ball Don’t Lie on social media: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook | Tumblr]

Ibaka averaged 14.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 31 minutes in 23 games as a starter after Toronto traded Terrence Ross and a first-round pick for the 27-year-old floor-spacing rim protector at the deadline. He posted similar numbers on the Raptors’ road to being swept in the second round.

Once considered an integral part of the Oklahoma City’s championship-contending core, the Thunder dumped his expiring contract to to the Orlando Magic at the 2016 NBA draft for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis — the same two pieces they just used to expire Paul George on an expiring deals.

A report last week indicated teams may have been hesitant about signing the Congo native to a lucrative contract over questions about whether he was indeed 27 years old. Ibaka vehemently denied those rumors on Saturday, and then reportedly agree to a three-year, less-than-max deal in Toronto.

The $20 million-plus price tag is a fair one in the modern NBA’s marketplace for Ibaka, even if he has slipped defensively since his heyday as a potential franchise cornerstone in the paint during OKC’s run to four conference finals in six years. Still an athletic specimen, he shot 39 percent on four 3-point attempts per game last season, and he’s only missed more than four games in a season once since his rookie year, making him an attractive power forward or center option in the pace-and-space era.

However, retaining him makes little sense if the Raptors do not intend to also re-sign Lowry, who shares an agent with Ibaka, because Toronto would be heading for a rebuild. The Raptors took a step back from their 2016 conference finals appearance even with Ibaka on the roster, and to lose him or Lowry could mean falling further in the standings. Keeping both at least means staying in the hunt.

Toronto just lost defensive stalwart and trade deadline acquisition P.J. Tucker to the Houston Rockets in free agency, and sixth man extraordinaire Patrick Paterson remains a free agent, but the Ibaka signing at least gives Raptors fans hope the team is ready to blow the team up completely in 2017-18.

          As he waits for free-agent call, Serge Ibaka slams 'rumors' that 'hurt people'

Serge Ibaka’s one of the top players available in the NBA’s free agent class of 2017. But while some of the other big names in the group have already locked down lucrative long-term deals, the former Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors big man is still waiting for his market to shake out.

[Fantasy Football is open! Sign up now]

That could be because only one top power forward — Blake Griffin, new recipient of a five-year, $173 million pact — has committed to a new deal, and there are still some things to sort out. (If and when Paul Millsap makes his choice, things will likely heat up for Ibaka, as both fit the profile for teams looking for defensively versatile stretch fours.) It could also, however, be because some prospective suitors have concerns about Ibaka that stretch beyond the boundaries of the court.

These concerns, and the rumors that spark them, have been discussed to varying degrees of openness in the NBA community over the years, and were given voice recently by ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Bleacher Report’s Jordan Brenner during a chat on Bleacher Report’s “The Full 48” podcast:

Brenner: I’ve always been a Serge fan. There are few guys who can provide rim protection and 3-point shooting, purportedly, the way he can. He seems to be a player built for today’s game. And yet, he didn’t elevate Toronto in the way many of us thought and hoped, and you know, I don’t know if … there’s always been the rumblings that he’s actually older than he is listed.

Lowe: Look, as uncomfortable as it is to say that, the league — not the league office, [but rather NBA] teams — believe that he’s older than his listed age [of 27 years old]. So whether he is or not, and what are the ethical issues of saying that, I don’t know. But it affects the free agency market for him.

Brenner: We’re not practicing NBA birtherism here, but that is the scuttlebutt.

That scuttlebutt is nothing new. Questions about whether Ibaka might be older than his listed age have been bandied about for years.

The rumor has been cited as “a source of speculation” in reports about Ibaka’s trade value, often attached to a suggestion that a team chose not to pull the trigger on an Ibaka deal because said team didn’t want to give up the farm for a player “whose chronological age might be a bit more advanced than his listed age.” It has also been presented as a potential explanation for “why his game has plateaued over the past few years, during what should be the prime of his career,” with Ibaka having transitioned over the course of his eight NBA seasons from a power-dunking, board-crashing paint patroller to a player who more typically spaces the floor on offense and gets his blocks sliding over from the weak side in help defense.

Ibaka’s heard this all before. As he sat in unrestricted free agency for the first time in his career, waiting for offers that might be slower in coming in part because of it, he decided to say something about it.

He issued a public statement via Twitter on Saturday that didn’t specifically address the age issue, but rather hit at the broader issue of rumor-mongering and general accountability:

The full text of Ibaka’s five-paragraph statement:

I am proud of where I come from and of my heritage. I am also very proud of the hard work I put to arrive to where I am right now as a basketball player.

I am very disappointed with the small part of society that spreads rumors and creates news based on stereotypes and without any proof. I’m sad that to this day there are still prejudices based on your origin and, as Africans, sometimes we need to take a stand.

I was born in the capital of the Republic of Congo, Brazzaville. A city with a population bigger than 1 million. A city with hospitals, a civil registry and an administration. I was born in a caring, loving and united family. I was not born in the jungle.

I know we live in a fast news world, where rumors and scoops rule, but I think media should take their responsibility seriously when talking about important matters that can hurt people. I know who I am and where I come from, and so do the people that really know me.

I’m sad that many people will have read a rumor and will have made a false assumption that can last forever, while they maybe will not read what I’m writing now. What’s sure is that, no matter what, nobody can take away from me the pride for my origins and the love that I have for basketball.

[Follow Ball Don’t Lie on social media: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook | Tumblr]

Ibaka notes that he’s not alone in facing these questions. Other African players, including Thon Maker, Bismack Biyombo and Dikembe Mutombo, have had to deal with similar rumors. So, too, have some non-African players, like China’s Yi Jianlian and Turkey’s Ersan Ilyasova. Two recent NBA draft picks were found to have been older than their listed age: Tanguy Ngombo of Qatar, whom the Minnesota Timberwolves drafted back in 2011, and Shabazz Muhammad of the United States, also drafted by the Wolves, in 2013.

Whether the lack of immediate hot-and-heavy interest in locking Ibaka down stems from the age rumor, concerns about having watched him generally struggle to make the sort of game-changing impact in Toronto that many had hoped, or something else, it remains to be seen what kind of market will develop for the Congolese shot-blocker. Michael Grange of Sportsnet in Toronto reported Saturday that the Raptors are “confident” they can bring Ibaka back with a new deal, though the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat also reportedly have interest in his services.

Ibaka ranks No. 7 on The Vertical’s Fab 50 Free Agents list for the class of 2017, and stands as the fifth best available free agent now that Stephen Curry and Griffin have come off the board.

El jugador congoleño, renovado por tres años por los Raptors, sale al paso del rumor que pone en duda que tenga 27 años
          Serge Ibaka estalla por los rumores sobre su edad: «No nací en la selva»   
El hispano-congoleño Serge Ibaka, jugador de los Toronto Raptors, se ha mostrado muy decepcionado y enfadado por los rumores que apuntan a que podría tener más edad de la que muestran sus documentos oficiales y ha asegurado que están «basados en estereotipos» y que son racistas, y ha recordado que no nació «en la selva». «Estoy muy decepcionado con la pequeña parte de la sociedad que crea y propaga rumores y noticias basadas en estereotipos y sin ninguna prueba. Estoy triste de que a día de hoy todavía haya prejuicios en función de su origen y, como africanos, a veces tenemos que posicionarnos», señaló en una carta publicada en las redes sociales. En este sentido, el internacional español, de 27 años, explicó que se siente «orgulloso» de sus orígenes y de su «herencia». «Nací en la capital de la República del Congo, Brazzaville, una ciudad con más de un millón de habitantes. Una ciudad con hospitales, un registro civil y una administración. Nací en una cuidada, querida y unida familia. No nací en la selva», recordó. «Sé que vivimos en un mundo de noticias rápidas, donde los rumores y las primicias son la norma, pero creo que los medios de comunicación deben asumir su responsabilidad cuando se habla de asuntos importantes que pueden hacer daño a la gente. Yo sé quién soy y de dónde vengo, y también la gente que realmente me conoce», indicó. A pesar de todo, el ala-pívot explicó que nada hará que deje de querer seguir jugando al baloncesto. «Estoy triste por que muchas personas han leído un rumor y se han hecho una falsa suposición que puede durar para siempre, que tal vez no lean lo que estoy escribiendo ahora. Lo que es seguro es que nadie puede dejar de hacerme sentir el orgullo por mis orígenes y el amor que tengo al baloncesto», concluyó.

Greve geral: Confira a agenda de atividades desta sexta-feira (30) em todo o país

Paralisação será contra as reformas da Previdência e trabalhista do governo golpista de Michel Temer

Brasil da Fato | São Paulo (SP)
,
Ato realizado durante paralisação do dia 28 de maio em São Paulo (SP), no Largo da Batata / Brasil de Fato
Atualizada em 29/06/2017, às 14:31
A greve geral convocada pelo conjunto das centrais sindicais brasileiras, que será realizada nesta sexta-feira (30), será acompanhada por atos de rua em todo o país, chamados por centrais sindicais. As manifestações também contarão com o apoio e mobilização das frentes Brasil Popular e Povo Sem Medo e estão marcadas em todos os estados do país.
Em São Paulo (SP), a atividade deve ocorrer na Avenida Paulista, a partir das 16 horas. Em Belo Horizonte (MG), a manifestação ocorre às 9 horas na Praça da Estação.
Já em Porto Velho (RO), será realizada às 8 horas na Praça Três Caixas D’Água. Em Fortaleza (CE), acontece às 9 horas na Praça da Bandeira.
No Rio de Janeiro (RJ), o protesto acontecerá a partir das 17 horas, com concentração na Candelária, no centro da cidade. A ideia é unir forças à mobilização convocada por alunos, professores e funcionários da Universidade Estadual do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), que passa por um momento complicado de cortes de verbas e periga fechar. Confira abaixo a relação de locais e horários das mobilizações pelo país.
Ainda na agenda de combate às reformas, os presidentes das centrais devem ser recebidos em audiência no Senado para manifestar sua posição contrária às reformas nesta terça (27). As entidades já sinalizaram que pretendem realizar uma manifestação em Brasília (DF) na data da votação final da reforma trabalhista, ainda indefinida

Categorias

Nesta segunda-feira (26), os bancários de São Paulo se reuniram em assembleia na quadra do sindicato e decidiram por unanimidade paralisar as atividades.
Trabalhadores das refinarias, plataformas e centros de distribuição da Petrobras  também vão aderir à paralisação. A decisão é resultado da em assembleia da Federação Única dos Petroleiros (FUP) realizada na última quinta-feira (22). A greve da categoria, que começa nesta sexta, deve se estender por tempo indeterminado nas refinarias contra o desmonte da estatal.
Os metroviários de São Paulo e os trabalhadores dos Correios também indicaram apoio ao dia de greves e protestos das centrais sindicais.  

Pautas

Raimundo Bonfim, coordenador da Central de Movimentos Populares, que integra a Frente Brasil Popular, indica que as pautas são as reformas do governo Michel Temer, em especial as mudanças na Previdência e na legislação trabalhista. "Como os movimentos estão juntos, os atos [de rua] incluem a questão da saída de Temer e a convocação de eleições diretas”, afirma. 
Para Edson Carneiro, secretário-geral da Intersindical e integrante da Frente Povo Sem Medo, é necessário derrotar politicamente o governo para que as reformas sejam vencidas. 
“Pelo que estamos acompanhando, o Senado até pode votar antes a matéria da [reforma] trabalhista, mas não em plenário. A expectativa é que a votação em plenário se dê depois, na primeira ou segunda semana de julho. Esperamos realizar um grande dia de luta, apontando que a manutenção de Temer ou a substituição por eleição indireta significam a agenda de desmonte de direitos, proposta pelo grande capital”, avalia.

Pressão

Para Carneiro, as manifestações populares já têm surtido efeito sobre o Congresso. Um exemplo seria a rejeição da reforma trabalhista na Comissão de Assuntos Sociais (CAS) do Senado Federal, por 10 votos a 9:
“Na votação da CA, houve votos contrários ao relatório de Ricardo Ferraço [PSDB-ES] até de senadores da sua própria legenda. Alguns parlamentares da base do governo votaram contra o governo. Isso aponta que a mobilização social, principalmente a greve geral do dia 28 de abril e a ocupação de Brasília em 24 de maio, surtiu efeito. Claro que isso também está combinado com a crise do governo, que vai perdendo as condições de se sustentar”, analisa.

          Jupiter & Okwess: Kin Sonic review – edgy funk and stuttering Kinshasa rhythms   

(Glitterbeat)

“Jupiter” Bokondji grew up partly in east Berlin, where his father was an attache at the Congolese embassy, making soul music his first passion; the discovery of Congo’s rich heritage of rumba and soukous came later. The exuberance of 70s soul is in the mix on this arresting second album, along with edgy funk and the stuttering rhythms of modern Kinshasa. On high-energy pieces such as Ofakombolo, Jupiter declaims furiously, though he can also croon in the airy style of rumba stars like Tabu Ley Rochereau. The songs come with sharp parables about the corrupt state of Congo, or, like Le temps passé, with low-key charm. A winner.

          Watanzania 18 watekwa na waasi wa Congo   
Waasi wanaodaiwa wa Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo (DRC) wamewateka madereva 21, wakiwamo Watanzania 18 wanaofanya kazi kwenye kampuni ya malori ya mizigo ya Alistair ya nchini.

Meneja usimamizi wa Tanzania na DRC wa kampuni ya Alistair , Anna Joyce Mbise aliliambia gazaeti la Mwananchi  jana kuwa  madereva hao walitekwa asubuhi ya Juni 29, baada ya mapambano kati ya askari wa Serikali ya Congo na waasi hao.

“Kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya madereva hao ni kwamba askari wa Serikali waliokuwa wanawasindikiza kabla ya msafara kuvamiwa, walizidiwa kwenye mashambulizi hayo ndipo wakatekwa,” alisema Mbise na kuongeza:

“Wametueleza kuwa hakuna aliyejeruhiwa katika tukio hilo, waasi wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vyema, lakini gari zetu tatu zimeharibika kwa risasi kutokana na mashambulizi hayo,” alisema.

Alisema kampuni hiyo imewasiliana na viongozi husika wa Serikali kwa kuandika barua Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, ili wasaidie madereva hao kuachiwa huru wakiwa salama.

“Tumejawa na hofu kuhusu usalama wao, kwani tunaamini kwamba askari wa jeshi la Serikali lazima wanajipanga kurejea kupambana ili kulikomboa eneo hilo, hapo tuna wasiwasi na usalama wa madereva hao ,” alisema.

Mratibu wa Shirikisho la Wasafirishaji Afrika Mashariki (FEARTA), Emmanuel Kakuyu alisema taarifa walizonazo ni kwamba madereva hao wamekumbwa na mkasa huo katika eneo la kijiji cha Lulimba kilichopo kati ya Ziwa Tanganyika na Kindu Manyema.

Alisema waasi hawa hawajawadhuru madereva hao, lakini alifafanua kuwa madereva watatu kati ya 21 wanatoka Uganda.

“Watekaji wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vizuri ikiwamo kuwahakikishia usalama wao wakidai kwamba hawana ugomvi nao, bali wana ugomvi na Serikali ya Congo,” alisema.

Umbali kati ya Lulimba na Kigoma ni kilomita 448, lakini ili ufike Lulimba ni lazima ulizunguke Ziwa Tanganyika upande wa mashariki mwa DRC.

Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa dawati la Afrika katika Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Suleiman Saleh alijibu kwa kifupi kwamba wamepokea taarifa za utekaji huo na tayari wameanza kushughulikia.

          ‘We ontvluchtten ons land, maar dit kamp is de hel’

          El Narco ABRE nueva RUTA desde Sudamérica a Europa Vía Africa como "Ayuda humanitaria"!!   

El médico argentino Gabriel Zilli, especialista en tratamiento para atenuar el dolor en los enfermos de cáncer, estaba nervioso. Temblaba. A su lado, en su casa en el barrio de Arroyito de Rosario, una ciudad de un millón 200 mil habitantes ubicada a 300 kilómetros de Buenos Aires, Argentina, el portugués Fernando Martins Frutuoso y el colombiano Wilmar Yuriano Valencia Estrada, del Cártel de los Urabeños, cocinaban en una olla grande arroz.


El oncólogo estaba intranquilo porque era su debut como narcotraficante. Sus compañeros colombianos practicaban en su casa un sofisticado método para que la cocaína quedara adherida a cada grano de arroz.

Esta organización de narcotraficantes colombianos, argentinos, ecuatorianos y portugueses, liderada por los hermanos Erman y Williams Triana Peña tenía previsto enviar a Guinea-Bissau, África, a través de la empresa Euro Export SRL, un cargamento de 46 toneladas de arroz. La carga iba a llegar a ese pequeño país de 1.5 millones de personas a través del programa “Hambre Cero”, de la Organización de Naciones Unidas (ONU).

El cargamento fue descubierto en septiembre de 2015 por la Gendarmería argentina en el depósito fiscal Binder SRL, en el oeste de Rosario. En la investigación que llevaron adelante el juez federal Sergio Torres y el jefe la Procuraduría de Narcotráfico (PROCUNAR), Diego Iglesias —en la que hay 72 imputados—, se descubrió que esta organización trasnacional creó 30 empresas en Argentina para “lavar” 5 millones 337 mil dólares.

El ex secretario de Justicia argentino Guillermo Heisinger era uno de los principales miembros de esta organización para blanquear el dinero en compañías de distintos rubros: agropecuarias, financieras y servicios fúnebres, como un crematorio de cadáveres ubicado a 20 kilómetros de donde se cocina el arroz con cocaína.

África es una nueva ruta del narcotráfico desde América Latina que empieza a preocupar. Los intermediarios en ese continente que se dedican a introducir la droga en Europa pertenecen a organizaciones criminales enquistadas en los gobiernos, con nexos directos con el terrorismo y el tráfico de armas.

La ministra de Seguridad argentina, Patricia Bullrich, señaló que este país es un mercado atractivo para los traficantes y que parte de la exportación local de cocaína “financia” a “grupos terroristas” en África. Bullrich explicó que la cocaína se triangula por África para llegar a Europa. “Servicios de inteligencia de otras naciones nos confirmaron que se les paga ‘peaje’ a grupos terroristas para hacer las operaciones”, declaró.
Según un informe de la Comunidad de Policías de América (Ameripol), por la ruta africana pasa 30% del total de la cocaína que tiene como destino final a Europa. África se transformó durante los últimos cinco años en un punto clave en el mapa del narcotráfico mundial. Y para las organizaciones criminales de América Latina es una ruta alternativa cada vez más utilizada para llegar a Europa, donde los controles se incrementaron.

Pioneros. La Oficina de Naciones Unidas contra la Droga y el Delito (UNODC, por sus siglas en inglés) activó las alarmas y pidió que se intensifiquen “los esfuerzos para erradicar el tráfico de drogas y la delincuencia organizada en África occidental, base central para el tráfico de cocaína desde América Latina hacia Europa”.

Los principales cárteles de droga mexicanos fueron los primeros que incursionaron en la ruta africana. Los Zetas, el Cártel de Sinaloa y Jalisco Nueva Generación tejieron puentes con ese continente con la ayuda de la mafia italiana Ndrangheta desde hace más de siete años.

Samuel González Ruiz, ex director de la Unidad Especializada de Delincuencia Organizada de la Procuración mexicana, señaló que “desde 2010 el Cártel de Sinaloa empezó a tener presencia en África”.

El cártel liderado por Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, alias El Chapo, extraditado a Estados Unidos en enero pasado, usa la ruta de Guinea Bissau para introducir la droga en Europa. En esa región operan tres facciones del Cártel de Sinaloa, una de ellas liderada por Damaso López Serrano, alias Mini Lic.

Los cárteles colombianos también tienen aceitados nexos con el continente africano. Las autoridades de ese país calculan que unas 130 toneladas de cocaína —la tercera parte de lo que se “exporta” desde Colombia— terminan en puertos africanos antes de ser diseminados por Europa. Esa droga sale generalmente por el puerto de Santos, Brasil.

Alianzas. En Togo y Guinea-Bissau hay varios colombianos que fueron capturados que llevaban cargamentos de droga en alianzas con redes venezolanas y brasileñas. Las organizaciones brasileñas como la Familia del Norte (FDN) y el Primer Comando de la Capital (PCC) trabajan con reductos de las desmovilizadas Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), con el poderoso Clan del Golfo y con la banda criminal los Caqueteños que opera en el sur de Colombia.


Según fuentes de la Dirección Central de Policía Judicial e Inteligencia (DIJIN), Los Caqueteños controlan con la FDN el tráfico de droga por toda la frontera terrestre y fluvial entre Brasil, Perú y Colombia.

Agentes federales de Estados Unidos aseguraron que la droga que ingresa a Brasil termina en Europa, vía Surinam y África. Varios de los cabecillas de las bandas brasileñas asesinados en las masacres de las cárceles en enero pasado se mataron por el control de esas rutas con los narcos colombianos.

En 2013, los colombianos Rafael Antonio Garavito García y Gustavo Pérez García, fueron capturados por formar parte de una red transnacional aliada con las FARC que llevaba cocaína hacia Guinea-Bissau y traía armas para el grupo guerrillero, según informaron agentes de la DEA.

En el caso de Venezuela, las autoridades estadounidenses avanzan en varias acusaciones que probarían que funcionarios y militares de ese país facilitan el envío de cocaína colombiana rumbo a África y a Europa. La droga sale de la zona del Catatumbo, en el norte de ese país, cuyos cultivos se han duplicado en los últimos cuatro años.

Debido a la amplitud y porosidad de la frontera entre Colombia y Venezuela, se calcula que hay más de 25 pasos habilitados para mover cocaína rumbo a África y a Europa. Casi todas las rutas del narco parten de del sur de Bolívar, Cesar, La Guajira, Arauca y Vichada. Los destinos son el estado de Apure, el Zulia, la península de Paraguaná, Caracas y la Isla de Margarita.

Mildred Camero, ex presidenta de la Organización Nacional Antidrogas (ONA) de Venezuela, dijo que este país “agrava su papel de principal corredor de sustancias ilícitas en Sudamérica hacia otros Estados del continente americano, Europa y África Occidental. Las incautaciones en el exterior han aumentado en menos de un año; y persiste el vacío de mecanismos de control”.

La noche del 2 de junio pasado, la Policía Antidrogas de Perú decomisó 474 kilos de cocaína que iban a ser embarcados en el puerto de Paita, departamento de Piura, con destino a Abidján, en Costa de Marfil. La cocaína fue camuflada en conos de hilos almacenados en cajas de cartón. El cargamento había sido remitido por la empresa Coagromar S.A, con sede en el Cantón Huaquillas, ciudad ecuatoriana que es, a su vez, la principal entrada terrestre con Perú. Fueron detenidas siete personas: cinco peruanos y dos ecuatorianos. No es la primera vez que se menciona el puerto de Paita como un punto de exportación utilizado por narcotraficantes.

El fiscal antidrogas de Perú, Juan Mendoza, aseguró que las mafias africanas negocian la compra de cargamentos en Uruguay, Argentina y Brasil, debido a que Perú es sólo un país productor de cocaína.

En Brasil la puerta de salida hacia África es el puerto de Santos, de donde se “exporta” 88% de la droga que logra salir de ese país, según calcularon las fuentes. El modus operandi detectado por la Policía Federal de Brasil es el llamado “rip-on rip-off”: los narcotraficantes, con la ayuda de cómplices, camuflan la cocaína en cargas lícitas dentro de contenedores. El procurador brasileño Carlos Bruno Ferreira Da Silva calculó que sólo se logra inspeccionar “entre 5 y 10% de las cargas que salen de Brasil”.

Una de las rutas más dinámicas hacia África es la llamada Carretera 10, por donde sale cocaína de Brasil a países de África occidental, antes de ser redistribuida para Europa. Otros puertos bajo la lupa son el de Montevideo, en Uruguay, y Buenos Aires y Rosario, en Argentina. Una fuente judicial uruguaya dijo al GDA que la Policía de ese país detectó este año que el grupo brasileño Primer Comando de la Capital (PCC) traficó cocaína por el puerto de Montevideo rumbo a África y de ahí a Europa.

En Uruguay se descubrieron envíos de droga por correo a África. El 10 de abril pasado, la empresa FedEx denunció dos paquetes sospechosos en Montevideo. Se encontró cocaína impregnada en ropa y dentro de un taladro. El hombre que enviaba las encomiendas era un brasileño, que tenía cinco documentos falsos de ese país. Envió encomiendas con cocaína a Hong Kong, Cabo Verde y Sudáfrica; y a Madrid, según el Ministerio del Interior de Uruguay.

En Costa Rica también se utiliza el correo para traficar drogas a África. Las remesas casi siempre son pequeñas cantidades y viajan por correo o en valijas de viajeros que son nativos de países como Nigeria, Congo, Ghana y Sudáfrica.

Ante la preocupación por estas nuevas rutas y movimientos de los carteles, la Dirección de Lucha contra el Crimen Organizado e Interpol se reunieron con sus pares de la región por el tráfico de drogas hacia África. Tratan de hacer un trabajo coordinado para conocer el modus operandi de las organizaciones y luego atrapar a los traficantes.

Según Amado de Andrés, representante regional de la UNODC, en los últimos tres años creció la producción de cocaína en América Latina. Calcula que el incremento alcanza las 200 toneladas. El funcionario reconoció que el incremento de la producción de estupefacientes se debe a un factor clave: el proceso de paz en Colombia. De Andrés explicó a GDA en El Salvador, que el aumento de la producción de cocaína está vinculado con las operaciones de la FARC: “El proceso de paz en Colombia ha tenido buenos resultados, excepto por la reducción de las plantaciones de coca en regiones colombianas”.

          Cassper Nyovest on Boity's 'new bae': If she’s happy‚ I’m happy   

Cassper Nyovest has reacted to reports that his ex-girlfriend Boity Thulo has found love in the arms of a new man‚ saying that he only wishes her happiness.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE at the launch of Somizi’s memoir‚ Dominoes: Unbreakable Spirit‚ in Johannesburg on Wednesday Cassper said he had spoken to Boity about the rumours but was just as confused as everyone else.

“I asked her about it but she wouldn’t tell me anything. She was like ‘it’s none of your business’. I’m not heartbroken because we are really good friends. I don’t think that it’s her boyfriend but if it is‚ good for her. If she’s happy‚ I am happy‚” Cassper said.

He said that Boity “had a lot of great things to say” about the Congolese basketball player‚ Christian Eyenga‚ with whom she has been linked.

Cassper’s only wish is that her new partner will treat her well.

“If that’s her boyfriend‚ I hope he’s a good guy. She’s been through a lot and she deserves a good guy. I just didn’t deserve her‚” Cassper added.

          WallyWorld Weekend Maths   

                             Nice try, but thanks for playing.

The other day, I noticed this post.
So I went over to Wallyworld, to see what that'd cost if you did it.
(I do the shopping math, so you don't have to!)

First, the list, with my price tally over on the left side. Afterwards, the analysis.

The List
1. Head to the nearest Wal-Mart and pick-up 20 lbs. of white or brown rice (white rice stores longer but brown rice is more nutritious) and 20 lbs. of pinto beans. White rice has a better storage life while brown rice has more nutritional benefits – your choice.
 
rice      $9.28
beans $16.40

2. While you’re there grab 5 lbs. mixed beans, 5 lbs. of white sugar, 5 lbs. of iodized salt, one gallon of olive oil (can be frozen to extend shelf-life), 5 lbs. oats, 10 lbs. each of white or wheat flour and cornmeal.

4# sugar $2.56
salt         $4.20
olive oil $31.96
oats        none there
flour       $3.16
cornmeal none there
3. Now head over to the canned foods and pick-up 20 cans of canned fruits and 20 cans of canned vegetables. Be sure to buy only those brands and contents you normally eat and nothing exotic. No need to shock the senses.
 
fruit       $29.60
veggies $19.60

4. Now over to the canned meats. Pick-up 20 cans of various meats, salmon, stews, spam and tuna. Again buy only those brands with contents you normally eat and nothing exotic.

meat       $7.12
salmon $15.12
stew       $9.76
Spam    $10.56
tuna       $4.00
5. Okay. Now to the to the peanut butter shelf and toss two 40-ounce jars in the cart. The listed shelf life is just over two years and each jar has over 6,000 calories. Peanut butter is an excellent instant survival food.
PB   $10.96
6. Over to the powdered drink mix – go on I’ll wait…Okay, pick up two 72 Ounce Tang Orange drink canisters (provides 100% of the US RDA vitamin C requirement per 8 oz. glass). Also, grab six 19-Ounce Containers of Kool-Aid Drink Mix. 
OJ         $20.00
Koolaid  $15.00
7. Off to the vitamin and supplement aisle, pick up 400 tablets “one a day” multivitamin and mineral supplements. I buy this brand at the local Wal-Mart – comes in 200 count bottle for $8 each.
 vitamins $15.48
8. Now to the department we all love – sporting goods. Go to the camping aisle and pick up 4 five gallon water containers. Fill with tap water as soon as you get back home.
 
 jugs $51.88
9. While you’re there buy 250 rounds of ammunition for your primary defensive weapon. More if you can, but this will be a good start. Also a good universal cleaning kit.

ammo $95.49
kit       $34.97
10. And while you’re in the sporting good department pick up the best flashlight you can afford, extra batteries and bulb. Also, grab two boxes of wooden matches and several multi-purpose lighters. Don’t forget to date, use and rotate – remember first in first out. Let’s get started. What would you add to the list?

3D Maglite $49.97
matches      $3.96
lighters        $1.97
11. Go to back the grocery department and pick up 5 lbs of powdered milk or the equivalent of canned, now go over to the next aisles and throw in 5 lbs of rolled oats and a case of Ramen noodles. Ramen noodles aren’t the most nutritional food but they are cheap, add bulk to the diet and store well –  just don’t rely on them to provide all your nutritional needs. And don’t forget a good manual can opener.

milk       $21.94
oats       didn't have
ramen    $4.36
can opener $6.97
12. While you’re in the grocery department be sure to pick up an assortment of spices to taste, such as Basil, Chili powder, Cinnamon, Garlic, Sage, Marjoram, Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme and Black Pepper. Spices can go along way toward making unfamiliar foods palatable. Also, while you’re in that area add 5 or more lbs of salt to your shopping cart, as you know salt has 101 uses.

spices $22.84
5# salt  $4.20

13. Okay, counting what you bought during our first trip to the shopping center, that should do it for the grocery. Now go over to the area near the pharmacy and pick up 3 large tubes of toothpaste, 3 brushes, 100 double edge razor blades, (note: if you don’t have a razor you’ll probably have to order one from Amazon.com and don’t forget a brush and bowl), I’ve used this type razor for years and think it is a cheaper long-term solution than disposable.
toothpaste $4.96
brushes $2.77
razors $199.70
14. While you’re there, add the most comprehensive first-aid kit that you can find to your cart and don’t forget over the counter pain meds (Tylenol, aspirin etc.). If you’re a woman (or have one in your life) go over a few shelves and pick up enough “feminine” supplies to last three months or longer.
FA $24.44
aspirin $3.64
Tylenol $9.47
Motrin  $13.94
15. With all that food in your pantry its only a matter of time before you have to poop. I know, its shocking but we all do it.  If you have a water source such as a stream or lake nearby you can still use the toilet in your bathroom, all you have to do is manually fill the tank in back and flush as usual. If this isn’t an option, you’ll need to look for other alternatives such as the Portable Toilets sold in the sporting goods department or making a  sawdust toilet from a five-gallon bucket.

 toilet $29.63
16. What’s next? You guessed it toilet paper. If you poop you need to wipe, if not you probably need to start. You could use a corncob, cloth, Roman sponge on a stick or paper from discarded books or newspapers but I would wager most of you prefer the softness of Angle Soft. Get enough to last at least a month, more if possible and remember women need more than men so plan accordingly.

TP  $16.98
17. While you are in that area of the store pick up a supply of disposable plates, bowls and plastic utensils. Don’t go overboard here but having a small stockpile of these items on hand can save a lot of water that would otherwise be used to wash dishes. Also add two or more gallons of regular, unscented bleach to your cart.

plates   $6.77
bowls    $4.84
utensils $8.97
bleach   $7.96

18. This is a biggie and can’t be done (legally) at the department store pharmacy without the signature of a doctor – that is stocking up on prescription meds.  Getting more than a 30 day supply, at least in the U.S., can be difficult if not impossible. But there are ways to get most of what you need for long-term survival. See this post and this one and this book (note: some of the information in the book is dated but there is still good advice to be found).
 Rx meds $10
19. Now push your cart (man this thing is getting heavy) over to the hardware department of the store and pick up a carpenters hammer, vise grips, adjustable wrench, screw driver set, duct tape, electrical tape, axe, pry bar, crosscut saw, hacksaw and large can of WD-40. This is your bare minimum survival tool kit.

tools $109.98
20. After you get your tool kit, go over to sporting goods and in the camping supply aisle pick up a propane camp stove and 5 or more 1 pound propane cylinders or a bulk 20 lb tank and hose adaptor – yes the pressure in the small bottles is the same as a 20 lb cylinder or even 100 lb tank, just be sure to get the proper adapter and hose assembly. Another alternative and the one I prefer is the Volcano Stove because I can use propane, wood and charcoal.

stove     $42.88
propane $17.35
hose      $15.67
Volcano stove - didn't have
21. Okay, we are just about done  – only a few more steps you’ll be out the door and heading home. You’ll need a way to keep in touch with your group so go to the electronics department and pick up the best two-way radios that you can afford – I have these. Don’t forget a battery-powered radio and extra batteries for both. While not necessary, I prefer a radio capable of receiving AM/FM and shortwave broadcasts – I have this one.

FRS walkie talkies $79.00
radio $35.00

Total cost:   $1167.26, + tax

The Good

There is nothing on this list that's a bad idea, per se. It's all useful and handy stuff, and you should have it, or something like it.

The Bad

This is, at most, food for one for about a month.
If you tried to tote it all out in one trip, you'd need three minions, because it would fill four full-sized shopping carts, and weigh about 700 pounds.
That's a pick-up truck load.
If you're shopping for two, three, four or more people, the costs and size tally would grow appreciably. Breakfast would be oats, fruit, maybe pancakes or biscuits, and Spam. Lunch would be any dinner leftovers, and dinner would be meat, rice or beans, and veggies.
Spices help, but there's a lot of monotony there.
Anyone that isn't either 18 and broke, or retarded, should have put the listed tool kit together before they graduated high school.

The Ugly

This would be maybe what you'd need for a couple of weeks, after a flood, hurricane, earthquake, tornado, etc.
For the Zombie Apocalypse, it's barely a decent running start, and in a month, you'd starve and die.
And the list of things not on this list - that SHOULD be - would choke a cube van (and these things, too, are all readily available at WallyWorld):

broth cubes
tea
honey
canned chili
grill tools
cast iron fry pan
cast iron dutch oven
candles
batteries and more batteries
solar patio lights
bar soap
laundry soap
5-gal buckets
canning book
canning jars
canning lids
stock pot
fish hooks
fishing line
sinkers
swivels
rat traps
seed packets
bird seed
bag of onions
bag of potatoes
sunblock
bug juice
sewing needles
pins
thread (by the pound)
buttons
grommets and setter
leather punch
paracord
scissors
Shoe goo
plastic sheeting
fiberglass screening
aluminum foil
plastic wrap
baggies
trash bags
tape measure
level
bolt cutters
wire cutters
wire
gloves
safety glasses
reading glasses
sun glasses
water purification tablets
magnesium block
fire starter sparker
compass
space blanket
water bottle/canteen
sleeping bag
tarps
tent
fixed blade knife
folding knife
multi-tool
folding shovel
pointed shovel
round shovel
sledge hammer
wood axe
splitting maul
wedges
hard rake
hoe
4-tine cultivator
machete
digging bar
rubber hose
sandbags
road flares
.22LR ammo (now that it isn't unobtanium)
air rifle pellets
slingshot and ammo

and on and on and on.
That's just what I noticed walking around pricing the other stuff.

Yeah, the post noted briefly this wasn't an inclusive list. So why package it as "The 21 Things..."?? Cut it down to three: (eat, sleep, poop), or else call it the "First (of 300) Things You Need...".

If you want to use the original list, it's not bad. For some folks, it's a budget- and back-breaker. For a lot more, it's way too little.
And no way in hell should you ever think this is something you could do last minute, without a family the size of the Brady Bunch, and smarter than the characters in The Big Bang Theory.

Worst of all, a list of stuff is still just a List Of Stuff.
Stuff won't save your life, knowledge + stuff will.
And the best knowledge is that rather than slap-dashing your preps, and trying to pull them out of your ass at the last minute in a WallyWorld panic buying spree, work smarter:

Break your preps into Systems, not Stuff. And rotate through each one on a regular basis.
I.e., get all the water SYSTEM stuff at once, and have back-ups to back ups, e.g. bleach, water purification tablets, iron kettle for boiling, plastic sheeting for solar stills and rain catchment, water jugs and canteens, etc.
Next day/week/month/whatever, work on your stored food system, then your personal protection system, shelter system, food obtaining system, communication system, cooking system, power system.

Instead of buying 400 pounds of staples, try this: every week, buy an eighth day of canned food meals. Set it aside for tougher times. In a year's time, you'll have a 52-day food cushion, in cans that last from 3-5 years, if not far longer, and it'll be food you're already eating. Three years would give you six months back stock, which you could then rotate into use every week, and always have six months' food on hand. (Always feed your pantry first.)
Plan something like 14 days' different meals, break down the cans required to make it, and buy all the cans and items for one of those meals every weekly shopping trip. A day's meals, even for a family, is maybe $10-15, tops, in canned goods. If you can't scrape that much out of your weekly budget, you're already in bare survival mode now.








*Endnotes

WallyWorld is regional. Commander Zero's store in MT stocks Mountain House #10 cans.
Mine, no way in hell.
One in MS or AL has cornmeal, or grits, or whatever.
One in Chicongo or CO, not so much.
Be aware of what you can (and can't) find in your area.

Chili is a life support system. Not including it on the meats list was a major faux pas.

Fish hooks and line will feed you just about everywhere on the planet.

Rat traps baited with peanut butter and staked down with cable or sash chain will feed a family eating nothing but tree squirrels on most of the North American continent, indefinitely.

Ditto bird seed used for pigeons, and a milk crate trap. Catch enough alive at once, build a dove cot, and you have a poor man's chicken ranch, and dove season is every week, no shells required. (Raising real chickens, and rabbits, would be even better.)

The bag of onions and potatoes are to plant, not eat. You'll survive on those pretty much forever, if you have dirt, water, and sunlight. With pigeon or squirrel added to the potato and onion, it's a pretty fair stew. And rabbit pellets are decent fertilizer when you compost it. Which grows you more potatoes and onions.

You could fit $100 worth of $0.20 seed packets into a cardboard banker file box, and they'd grow enough food for a small army for several years. After the fish hooks, line, and such, they're the second thing I'd grab in the apocalypse, if I wanted to eat next year and beyond. If you're really bright, you'd have sacks (or N2 or CO2-filled sealed canning jars) of the non-GMO non-hybrid heirloom varieties sitting around for that day, which would produce seeds endlessly, pretty much like they've done since Adam and Eve, or Thag and Og, depending on your personal beliefs.

250 rounds of ammo? I can't even.
Look at any mob you've ever seen.
I don't want 250 rounds, I want 250 cases. And more in the truck.
But if you're going to go that low, how's about 200 rounds for a rifle, and 50 for a pistol?
Along with a few boxes of assorted 12 ga. and a brick of .22???

Before I'd spend $30 for the flimsy toilet seat, I'd get a 4'x8' sheet of 3/4 plywood for about the same price, and one wooden toilet seat, cut and build a much sturdier toilet cube with lid, made the right height to slip a 5 gal. bucket inside, and have a solid toilet that I could close tight, that'd last longer, and keep the smell in and the flies out. I'd coat everything but the toilet seat, inside and out, with truck bed liner, and I could rinse or sponge wipe the whole thing any time I cared to, and seal the wood so nothing go into it, including splatter or splash.

The toilet paper was $16.98 for 36 rolls, and 18.97 for 20 rolls. Really. (Manager's Special - for public school graduates, no doubt.) Caveat emptor.

Gloves and safety glasses used during Tough Times will cut back drastically on using the First Aid kits. And you won't need nearly as many glass replacement eyes and prosthetic hooks and rubber fingers, when yours don't grow back.

$200 for razor blades, but $25 for first aid? WTF???
And also, you won't need to shave next spring, when you starve this winter.

The "best first aid kit" available at WallyWorld, or anywhere else, is a small plastic Tub Of Shit. It's a half-fast solution for lazy people, with substandard supplies in sub-optimal quantities, and a waste for any real-world use, unless you're stocking a life raft for a party barge or a float platform for the pond. Probably not even then. (But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?)
Build your own damned kit, better, bigger, and many times even cheaper. I think I've covered contents and training to use them a few times in the past. A first aid kit you didn't build is like a meal you didn't cook from eating out, because you don't know how to cook: an expensive luxury, added risks, and a sop to laziness.

While pricing this, I found two different Eton emergency radios (AM/FM/weather) at WallyWorld on markdown, one with a hand charging crank for $35, and one without it for $5. I bought them both on the spot. A decent emergency battery-powered radio for $5? Hell, yes. This is also why I walk out a piece like this in real life: serendipity.

Zambia, DRC Sign Kasumbalesa Trade Deal
By Chatula Kangali
Times of Zambia

Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have signed a bilateral trade agreement to begin operations on the one-stop border post at Kasumbalesa in Chilabombwe District on the Copperbelt Province.

The agreement was signed by Zambia's Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Margaret Mwanakatwe and DRC's External Trade Minister Jean Lucien Bussaa Tongba at the Mukuba Hotel in Ndola yesterday.

The two Governments agreed to form a joint-border post committee to facilitate cross-border trade and construct trade centre zones at Kasumbalesa and to officially launch the Simplified Trade Regime (STR).

Zambia and DRC will request the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) to support the implementation of the STR through the construction of trade information desks to facilitate cross-border trade.

In the agreement, the two countries commit to facilitate cross-border trade with possible funding from the World Bank Great Lakes Region Trade Facilitation programme.

It was also agreed that the joint border committee should hold regular meetings in order to put in place measures that would help eliminate tariff and non-tariff barriers in trade when need arose.

Ms Mwanakatwe said the Zambian Government was committed to improving trade between the two countries to help develop the economy.

She said the Government would consider developing the Mokambo and Kipushi border posts in Mufulira and Solwezi districts respectively.

"The development of the two border posts would help reduce the smuggling of goods and improve trade between Zambia and DRC," she said.

Mr Tongba said DRC was eager to see improved trade with Zambia through the development of border posts.

He said the development of border posts would not only benefit Zambia and DRC but also increase Africa's international trade.

Catégorie : BASS DUBSTEP GRIME
Artist(s) : Tour De Force, Johnny Osbourne, Jacky Murda, Radikal Guru
Brooklyn’s Tour de Force (TDF) begin 2016 with an update to one of their best, and most loved, dubplate weapons. Soundboy Prayer was written in late 2013 and has spent the past few years as a centerpiece of TDF sets, wreckin’ havoc on the Dub-Stuysystem with its iconic Johnny Osbourne vocal sample, trampling horns, and dark melodies. Consistent support from DJs and crowd reaction convinced TDF to dust off the riddim and give it a full release. The official 12” refreshes the production with added bass weight, a new arrangement, and a cavernous dub version. Backing the original and its dub are two remixes from producers within the worldwide sound system community whose approach echoes TDF’s blend of reggae and bass music. Chopstick Dubplate’s Jacky Murda, who has worked with Barrington Levy, Top Cat, and Johnny Osbourne himself, was a natural fit to capture the junglist vibe of the original and turn it into an energetic jungle remix that begs for the rewind. Poland’sRadikal Guru, one of the brightest lights of the European dub community, provides the second remix, keeping things dubby and nice with a blend of reggae and dubstep that emphasises catchy string melodies and a weighty bass line. “Radikal Guru’s approach to blending traditions has been an inspiration for us,” says TDF Q-Mastah, “so he was a natural choice for this release.” Congo Natty: "Big Tuuuuune!" Ras Kwame (BBC 1Xtra): "nice and heavy!" Max Glazer (Federation Sound): "Wicked tune!" (dub prayer) Moresounds (Cosmic Bridge, 31 Records): "Oh Lord!" OBF Sound System - "Monster Tune!"

          Soutien du pape aux parents d'un bébé britannique condamné   
Description: 

<p>Cité du Vatican (AFP) - Le pape François a apporté dimanche son soutien aux parents de Charlie Gard, un bébé britannique de dix mois atteint d'une maladie génétique rare dont la justice a autorisé la fin du maintien en vie.</p><p>Mardi, la Cour européenne des droits de l'homme (CEDH) a autorisé la fin du maintien en vie du nourrisson, qui souffre d'une maladie mitochondriale, emboîtant le pas à la justice britannique qui avait auparavant autorisé la fin de la ventilation artificielle de l'enfant.</p><p>Ses parents, Connie Yates et Chris Gard, se battent au contraire pour son maintien en vie et souhaitent l'emmener aux Etats-Unis pour le faire soigner.</p><p>"Le Saint-Père suit avec affection et émotion l'affaire du petit Charlie Gard et exprime sa proximité à ses parents", a indiqué le Vatican dans un communiqué.</p><p>"Il prie pour eux dans l'espoir que leur désir d'accompagner et de s'occuper de leur enfant ne soit pas dédaigné", a-t-il ajouté.</p><p>Dans le texte, publié en italien, le Vatican a utilisé le terme "curare", signifie "s'occuper de", mais peut aussi signifier "soigner".</p><p>Dans son arrêt définitif rendu mardi, la CEDH a dit avoir approuvé la façon dont les tribunaux britanniques se sont saisis de l'affaire.</p><p>Les parents de Charlie Gard l'avaient saisie en février dernier après que la Haute Cour britannique eut autorisé la fin de la ventilation artificielle de l'enfant.</p><p>L'hôpital où le bébé était traité, le Great Ormond Street Hospital à Londres, souhaitait obtenir l'autorisation de mettre un terme à la ventilation artificielle de l'enfant et de lui prodiguer des soins palliatifs. </p><p>La Haute Cour britannique a donné raison à l'hôpital le 6 juin au motif principal que les perspectives de guérison de l'enfant étaient faibles et que la prolongation d'un traitement sans issue positive réaliste ne faisait que prolonger ses souffrances.</p><p></p>

          Irak: attentat suicide dans un camp de déplacés, 14 morts   
Description: 

<p>Bagdad (AFP) - Un kamikaze s'est fait exploser dimanche dans un camp de déplacés de la province irakienne d'Al-Anbar (ouest), tuant 14 personnes, ont indiqué un responsable de la police et un médecin.</p><p>L'attentat dans ce camp situé à l'ouest de Ramadi, la capitale de la province d'Al-Anbar, a également fait 13 blessés.</p><p>Selon les mêmes sources, la plupart des victimes sont des femmes et des enfants.Deux membres des forces de sécurité ont également été tués, a indiqué le responsable de la police.</p><p>Selon le chef du conseil municipal d'al-Wafaa où se trouve le camp "60 Kilo", les personnes qui se trouvaient sur les lieux au moment de l'attaque "seront emmenées dans un autre camp (...) plus sûr et qui reçoit plus d'aides".</p><p>"Le camp 60 Kilo sera ensuite fermé", a ajouté Adnane Fayhan,.</p><p>L'attentat n'a pas été revendiqué dans l'immédiat, mais il rappelle le mode opératoire du groupe jihadiste Etat islamique (EI) qui contrôle toujours des secteurs de la vaste province d'Al-Anbar frontalière de la Syrie, de la Jordanie et de l'Arabie saoudite.</p><p>L'EI s'est emparé en 2014 de vastes régions au nord et à l'ouest de Bagdad, mais les forces irakiennes, soutenues par la coalition internationale sous commandement américain, ont depuis repris une grande partie des territoires perdus.</p><p>Pratiquement vaincu à Mossoul, qui était son dernier grand fief urbain, l'EI réussit toutefois à frapper dans les zones sous contrôle gouvernemental et a revendiqué de nombreux attentats meurtriers ces derniers mois dans le pays.</p><p></p>

          Macron critiqué pour avoir évoqué "les gens qui ne sont rien"   
Description: 

<p>Paris (AFP) - Plusieurs responsables politiques ont critiqué dimanche Emmanuel Macron, pour avoir évoqué jeudi, lors d'une rencontre avec des entrepreneurs, "les gens qui ne sont rien", beaucoup voyant du "mépris" dans cette formule.</p><p>"Ce propos est terrible et indigne mais tellement révélateur de la pensée macroniste", a tweeté la présidente du FN Marine Le Pen.</p><p>"Le président de la République, (...) ses propos ont été profondément méprisants pour les Français, il devrait s'excuser", a estimé pour sa part le président de Debout la France Nicolas Dupont-Aignan lors d'un entretien sur France 3.</p><p>"Nous ne sommes rien?Soyons tout!" a écrit le porte-parole du Nouveau Parti anticapitaliste Olivier Besancenot, en ajoutant le mot-dièse "internationale", tandis que de son côté le socialiste Gérard Filoche évoquait du "mépris de classe".</p><p>"Mais quel mépris!" s'est aussi exclamé l'ancien ministre LR Thierry Mariani.</p><p>Lors de l'inauguration du plus grand incubateur de start-up au monde, Station F, installé dans la Halle Freyssinet à Paris, le chef de l'Etat avait invité les entrepreneurs présents à "transformer notre pays", notant que "réussir ce n'est pas seulement gagner de l'argent, c'est aussi faire réussir ceux qu'on aime, réduire les inégalités, aider à transformer la société".</p><p>Notant que ce lieu était une ancienne gare, il avait aussi fait remarquer que "une gare, c'est un lieu où on croise les gens qui réussissent et les gens qui ne sont rien, parce que c'est un lieu où on passe, un lieu que l'on partage (...)".</p><p></p>

          Coupe des Confédérations: l'Allemagne reprend un trophée   
Description: 

<p>Saint-Pétersbourg (AFP) - Venue avec son équipe B, repartie avec le trophée: l'Allemagne, sans aucun titulaire habituel, a décroché sa première Coupe des Confédérations en battant le Chili (1-0) en finale de l'édition 2017, dimanche à Saint-Pétersbourg.</p><p>Les champions du monde succèdent au palmarès au Brésil triple tenant du titre, et espèrent désormais rompre la malédiction qui a vu les vainqueurs des neuf éditions tous échouer à remporter le Mondial dans la foulée.</p><p>Or, c'est justement pour faire le doublé 2014/2018 que Joachim Löw avait choisi d'éviter à ses titulaires de disputer trois tournois en trois ans.Il n'avait du coup convoqué que trois champions du monde (Mustafi, Ginter et Draxler) au sein du groupe le plus jeune du plateau russe, seulement 24 ans et 4 mois en moyenne.</p><p>Il a pu faire une revue d'effectif qui a permis des confirmations (Ter Stegen, Rüdiger, Kimmich, Hector), des révélations (Rudy, Goretzka, Stindl, Werner) et des promesses (Can, Henrichs, Brandt), le tout en empilant douze buts en cinq matches.</p><p>Qu'une équipe bis remporte le titre confirme la puissance actuelle de l'Allemagne, également vainqueur vendredi de l'Euro Espoirs, mais représente sans doute aussi une bien mauvaise publicité pour une Coupe des Confédérations sur la sellette, et qui pourrait être affectée par "l'analyse" de toutes les compétitions lancée par le président de la Fifa Gianni Infantino.</p><p></p><p>- Erreur de Diaz -</p><p></p><p>"Nous sommes faits pour écrire l'histoire", avait relevé vendredi la star chilienne Sanchez: la Roja avait eu raison de l'Argentine de Messi lors des finales de Copa America 2015 et 2016, puis du Portugal de Cristiano Ronaldo en demi-finale de ce tournoi russe (0-0 a.p., 3-0 t.a.b.).Mais l'âge d'or chilien s'est heurté à l'aigle allemand.</p><p>Les Chiliens ont perdu le match sur une énorme erreur: Diaz se faisait subtiliser le ballon devant sa surface par Werner qui n'avait plus qu'à servir Stindl, poussant le ballon dans la cage vide pour ouvrir le score (20e).Stindl rejoignait ainsi ses coéquipiers Werner et Goretzka en tête du classement des buteurs (3 réalisations chacun).</p><p>Pourtant, les Allemands ont souffert.Des joueurs qui s'étaient comportés en valeurs sûres au fil du tournoi, notamment les paires de latéraux Kimmich-Hector et de récupérateurs Rudy-Goretzka, ont subi la pression du Chili et notoirement de Vidal, combattant omniprésent au volume impressionnant.</p><p>La Mannschaft a manqué de précision au moment de conclure ses contre-attaques, comme ces tentatives excentrées de Goretzka (36e, 45e) ou ce raid de Draxler dont la frappe était déviée en corner (55e).</p><p></p><p>- Draxler Ballon d'Or -</p><p></p><p>Contre-attaques, car comme lors de la première confrontation, en phase de groupes le 22 juin à Kazan (1-1), le Chili a dominé les débats, notamment en première période (63% de possession!), campant souvent dans la moitié allemande et multipliant les centres et les frappes au but.</p><p>Mais il manquait cruellement de réalisme: ses tentatives s'avéraient rarement cadrées ou dangereuses, à l'image du tir au-dessus de la barre de Vidal, qui de rage martelait le sol (76e), ou de celui de Sagal sur un centre en retrait (84e).</p><p>Ses seules occasions vraiment nettes furent une infiltration balle au pied d'Aranguiz, taclé in extremis par Rüdiger (5e), ou ce coup franc de Sanchez sur lequel Ter Stegen se couchait bien (90e+4).Le gardien allemand était d'ailleurs élu homme du match.</p><p>Il y avait de la tension sur le terrain, au point de produire une altercation entre les deux coéquipiers du Bayern Munich, Kimmich et Vidal, écopant chacun d'un carton jaune (59e).</p><p>L'assistance vidéo à l'arbitrage (VAR), pour laquelle officiait le Français Clément Turpin, n'a pas vraiment dissipé cette tension.Elle fut d'abord utilisée après un coup de coude de Jara dans le visage de Werner.L'arbitre est allé lui-même regarder les images au bord du terrain et a averti le Chilien, qui s'en sortait bien (66e).</p><p>Les Chiliens, leur sélectionneur Juan Antonio Pizzi au premier chef, étaient ensuite furieux que l'arbitre n'actionne pas la VAR sur un litige dans la surface.L'arbitre le faisait finalement, en vain pour la Roja, et au bout de longues secondes de confusion (77e).</p><p>La vidéo fut un des principaux protagonistes de la compétition, Draxler son Ballon d'Or et l'Allemagne son vainqueur.Rendez-vous au Mondial-2018.</p><p></p><p></p>

          Les Américains Rodarte et Proenza Schouler au diapason de la haute couture   
Description: 

<p>Paris (AFP) - Jeunes filles en fleur chez Rodarte, citadines modernes chez Proenza Schouler: les deux griffes américaines, qui ont déserté les podiums new-yorkais pour Paris, ont ouvert le bal des défilés dimanche avec des collections à l'esprit proche de la haute couture.</p><p>Si ces deux marques phares de la mode américaine ne bénéficient pas de l'appellation "haute couture", elles ont pourtant bien convoqué l'artisanat et les métiers d'art dans leurs collections où abondaient, dans des styles différents, volants, tulle et broderies.</p><p>Ces deux griffes, comme A.F.Vandevorst et Azzaro, font partie des nouveaux "invités" au programme des défilés de haute couture qui se tiennent jusqu'à mercredi à Paris.</p><p>- L'esprit lingerie de Proenza Schouler -</p><p>Dans le cloître du lycée Jacques Decour, au pied de la butte Montmartre, les créateurs Jack McCollough et Lazaro Hernandez ont fait défiler des silhouettes riches en volants, imprimés fleuris et dentelles, mais résolument modernes avec des ouvertures inattendues et un aspect non fini.</p><p>Des attaches de corset deviennent des sortes de fermetures éclair permettant d'ouvrir une jupe devant, ou de raccorder le haut et le bas d'une robe.Des rubans flottent le long de la silhouette, la poitrine est mise en valeur par une brassière en cuir sur un haut en maille.</p><p>Les chaussures, basses, se font remarquer, avec leurs volants de cuir ou leurs breloques.</p><p>Des pantalons en dentelle, des vestes de plumes, des jupes mousseuses, longues et évasées, des robes faites de broderies de motifs floraux, donnent la touche "haute couture" à une collection pleine de légèreté, que ses créateurs ont voulu "optimiste".</p><p>Les deux designers américains, qui ont lancé leur marque en 2002, ont travaillé avec le brodeur Lesage ainsi qu'avec une série de "petits ateliers parisiens indépendants, plumassiers, tisserands".</p><p>- Rodarte: motardes romantiques -</p><p></p><p>C'est également dans un cloître que Rodarte, marque des soeurs californiennes Kate et Laura Mulleavy, avait choisi d'organiser son show parisien.</p><p>Dans les galeries entourant le jardin de l'ancienne abbaye de Port-Royal ont défilé des jeunes filles en robes délicates, tout en transparences, plumetis, broderies et plumes légères.Des gypsophiles parsèment les chevelures, s'accrochent à des bijoux dorés autour des bras. </p><p>Pois et volants apportent une touche hispanique.Des bottes pointues comme des santiags viennent contrebalancer le côté romantique, de même que quelques silhouettes de motardes, en cuir, dont les blousons sont percés de perles.</p><p>La griffe, très prisée des stars de Hollywood, a opté comme sa compatriote Proenza Schouler, pour les défilés parisiens de juillet plutôt que pour la Fashion week new-yorkaise de septembre afin de pouvoir présenter et vendre plus tôt sa collection.</p><p>- le chic sac poubelle -</p><p>Autres nouveaux venus dans le programme parisien, les Belges Filip Arickx et An Vandevorst, mari et femme à la tête du label A.F.Vandevorst, ont utilisé des sacs poubelles et des emballages de pressing pour en faire des jupes et des robes finement brodées.</p><p>Cette collection est une ode à "la liberté et à la créativité", a expliqué An Vandevorst à l'AFP.</p><p>"C'est une femme qui transforme de vieilles choses en nouvelles, qui prend ce qu'elle trouve, comme un sac poubelle, et se met à le broder. Elle est tellement créative que la matière lui importe peu".</p><p>- Azzaro version Simoens -  </p><p>Le créateur français Maxime Simoens, qui présentait sa première collection pour la maison Azzaro, a fait défiler des silhouettes glamour aux lignes simples, parsemées de broderies brillantes.</p><p>"La vision actuelle de la couture, ce n'est plus vraiment dans les volumes oversize, le froufrou.La simplicité peut être aussi un vecteur d'élégance et de raffinement à la française", a-t-il expliqué.</p><p>Le nouveau directeur artistique a revisité la fameuse "robe trois anneaux" créée par Loris Azzaro en 1968, mais d'une "manière encore plus sexy".Cette fois les trois anneaux de strass ne sont pas sur l'avant de la robe mais dans le dos.</p><p></p>

          Tour de France: des favoris à terre et le sprint de Kittel   
Description: 

<p>Liège (Belgique) (AFP) - Plusieurs favoris à terre et un sprint enlevé à Liège par l'Allemand Marcel Kittel: la deuxième étape du Tour a respecté dimanche un scénario conforme à la tension traditionnelle des premières journées.</p><p>Kittel n'a pas pu compter sur son "train" habituel mais il a gagné sa dixième étape dans le Tour.En 2013 (Bastia) et 2014 (Harrogate), il avait déjà réussi une entame victorieuse dès le premier sprint massif.</p><p>Le porteur du maillot jaune, le Britannique Geraint Thomas, a conservé sa position, la première pour un Gallois dans l'histoire du Tour.Non sans se faire une grosse chaleur, malgré la pluie déferlant à ce moment de la course, tout comme les deux premiers de l'an passé, Chris Froome et Romain Bardet, ainsi que l'Australien Richie Porte, autre favori à terre.</p><p>La chute, un empilement qui a ressemblé à l'effondrement d'un château de cartes, s'est produite à une trentaine de kilomètres de l'arrivée, dans un rond-point très glissant sous la pluie. </p><p>"Je ne sais pas qui est tombé en premier", a raconté Thomas."Avec 'Froomey', on devait être dans les 10-15 premiers et plusieurs coureurs ont chuté devant nous.Il n'y avait pas d'échappatoire.".</p><p></p><p>- Froome perd un peu de peau -</p><p></p><p>Le bilan ? "On a juste glissé, il n'y a pas de dégâts", a répondu le Gallois, volontairement rassurant."On a juste perdu un peu de peau".Précisément au fessier côté droit pour Froome, le vainqueur sortant et favori de cette édition.Au genou droit pour Bardet qui a reconnu avoir des douleurs: "C'est normal dans une chute à 50 km/h."</p><p>Le Français, dont un coéquipier (Axel Domont) a été plus sévèrement touché, a préféré insister sur l'absence de conséquence grave d'autant qu'il a pu, comme ses rivaux, revenir quelques minutes après dans le peloton qui avait ralenti l'allure: "Une chute, ce n'est jamais une bonne nouvelle mais ça fait partie du métier, ça aurait pu être pire.Les beaux jours sont à venir, le moral est excellent."</p><p>"Ce sont des journées où l'on peut perdre le Tour de France", a rappelé l'Espagnol Alberto Contador qui s'en est bien tiré, tout comme le Colombien Nairo Quintana.Porte, qui a "pris un petit coup au genou" dans cette chute, ne peut qu'être d'accord avec lui. </p><p>Etait-ce évitable pour les favoris ? "Il fallait être très chanceux", a rétorqué Thomas, qui a dû abandonner en mai dans le Giro à cause d'une chute provoquée par une moto de "carabiniers" mal garée.Pour tous, la pluie intermittente mais parfois violente a ajouté au stress.</p><p>Le Tour avait auparavant quitté Düsseldorf derrière l'échappée lancée dès le baisser de drapeau par un quatuor.Cette fois, les quatre aventuriers étaient tous des néophytes enthousiastes, jeune comme Thomas Boudat (23 ans), ex-champion du monde sur piste, ou plus expérimenté, tels l'Américain Taylor Phinney (27 ans) et les trentenaires français Laurent Pichon et Yoann Offredo. </p><p></p><p>- Démare: "Comme une brute" -</p><p></p><p>L'avantage du quatuor a culminé à moins de quatre minutes.Phinney, fils de deux parents médaillés aux JO, et Offredo ont insisté dans les 20 derniers kilomètres.Ils n'ont été rejoints qu'à 1100 mètres de la ligne. </p><p>"On aurait pu penser que notre échappée était suicidaire et ridicule.C’était une étape de plaine avec du vent de face.Mais avec la météo changeante, la pluie, je savais qu’il y aurait des chutes et que cela pouvait nous permettre d’aller au bout", a expliqué Offredo.</p><p>Le sprint est apparu quelque peu désorganisé."J'étais inquiet", a reconnu le manager de l'équipe de Kittel, le Belge Patrick Lefevere (Quick-Step)."Il n’y avait pas une équipe au-dessus des autres et notre train ne s’est pas mis en route.Heureusement, Marcel s'est bien débrouillé tout seul".</p><p>"Dans ce Tour, on compte beaucoup de sprinteurs et tous essayent de travailler avec leur équipe.Quand ça ne fonctionne pas, chacun cherche à garder sa position", a estimé Kittel en ajoutant avoir "de bonnes chances d'en gagner d'autres".</p><p>"Il y a eu un petit temps mort aux 300 mètres, Marcel est arrivé derrière et il a lancé comme une brute", a confirmé Arnaud Démare.Le champion de France, deuxième, a obtenu son meilleur résultat dans le Tour et s'est déclaré "confiant pour la suite". </p><p>Lundi, les puncheurs remplacent les sprinteurs bien que certains (Peter Sagan surtout) relèvent des deux catégories.L'arrivée, jugée du côté de la citadelle de Longwy après 212,5 kilomètres, se situe au bout d'une montée de 1600 mètres qui fait saliver par avance les Belges Philippe Gilbert et Greg Van Avermaet.</p><p></p><p></p>

          Irak: assaut final en vue face aux derniers jihadistes à Mossoul   
Description: 

<p>Mossoul (Irak) (AFP) - L'armée irakienne a annoncé dimanche de nouvelles avancées à Mossoul face aux dernières centaines de jihadistes du groupe Etat islamique (EI) acculés dans la vieille ville au milieu de civils pris au piège des combats.</p><p>Huit mois après le lancement de l'offensive pour reprendre à l'EI son dernier grand bastion urbain du pays, la victoire "n'est plus qu'une question de jours", a déclaré à l'AFP le général de brigade Nabil al-Fatlawi, un commandant des forces spéciales irakiennes (CTS).</p><p>Selon lui, "environ 300 combattants jihadistes, en majorité étrangers et venus notamment d'Europe, d'autres pays arabes et d'Asie" résistent encore aux forces armées qui se préparent à lancer l'assaut final.</p><p>Acculés sur la rive ouest du Tigre, et encerclés de l'autre côté par l'armée et la police, les jihadistes ne contrôlent plus qu'une bande d'environ 400 mètres entre les deux, a précisé le général.</p><p>Il ne s'est toutefois pas avancé sur la date exacte de la fin de la bataille, celle-ci restant difficile "à cause de l'étroitesse des rues et de la présence de civils", souvent utilisés comme boucliers humains par les jihadistes.</p><p>Plus tôt dimanche, l'armée a annoncé la reconquête par les CTS d'un autre quartier du Vieux Mossoul, Makawi.</p><p>La veille, la police avait annoncé la reprise, après des semaines de combats acharnés, d'un complexe comprenant un hôpital et d'autres installations médicales dans le quartier Al-Shifaa.</p><p>Plus de 500 combattants de l'EI avaient trouvé refuge dans ce qui était la dernière poche de résistance jihadiste hors de la vieille ville, selon la même source.</p><p>La plupart ont été tués, mais une petite partie a pu s'enfuir, a-t-elle ajouté.</p><p>Dans la vieille ville, les combats opposant l'armée et la police à l'EI restent âpres et sanglants.</p><p>Si les autorités irakiennes ne fournissent pas de bilans en termes de victimes, les opérations font chaque jour de nombreux morts tant militaires que jihadistes ou civils.</p><p>A chacune de ses visites dans la vieille ville ces derniers jours, l'équipe de l'AFP a vu plusieurs dépouilles de jihadistes dans les rues et de soldats ramenés du front par leurs camarades.</p><p></p><p>- Nombreuses victimes civiles -</p><p></p><p>Des centaines d'habitants continuent à sortir chaque jour de la vieille ville au fur et à mesure des avancées des forces irakiennes.</p><p>Selon eux, les snipers et bombes jihadistes comme les bombardements aériens de l'armée irakienne et ses alliés occidentaux menés par les Etats-Unis ont fait de très nombreuses victimes civiles collatérales. </p><p>Dimanche après-midi, dans un centre médical pour civils déplacés aux abords de la vieille ville, une équipe de l'AFP a croisé plusieurs membres d'une famille en partie décimée par une frappe aérienne.</p><p>"Neuf membres de notre famille ont péri sous les décombres", a raconté Chahed Omar, en tenant dans ses bras sa nièce de 9 mois, dont le père fait partie des victimes.</p><p>Le bébé était soigné pour malnutrition et déshydratation sévères, comme de nombreux enfants qui sortent de la vieille ville avec leurs familles après avoir été pris au piège des combats, et s'être cachés dans des sous-sols pendant des semaines voire des mois. </p><p>Jeudi, les forces irakiennes avaient repris les ruines de la mosquée al-Nouri, où le calife autoproclamé de l'EI, Abou Bakr al-Baghdadi, avait fait son unique apparition publique en juillet 2014.</p><p>Cette avancée a représenté une victoire symbolique pour les forces irakiennes, même si les jihadistes ont dynamité ce célèbre joyau historique ainsi que le minaret penché adjacent surnommé "la tour de Pise irakienne".</p><p>L'EI, qui en 2014 avait saisi de larges pans de territoires en Irak et en Syrie, a depuis perdu 60% de son territoire et 80% de ses revenus.</p><p>Il contrôle toujours plusieurs zones dans les deux pays, où il continue de commettre des attentats dans les zones tenues par leurs gouvernements respectifs.Tout comme il a continué ces derniers jours à perpétrer des attaques dans les quartiers de Mossoul reconquis par l'armée irakienne.</p><p>En Syrie, la ville de Raqa, capturée par les jihadistes en 2014 et devenue le symbole de leurs atrocités, est actuellement assiégée par une alliance de combattants kurdes et arabes soutenues par les Etats-Unis.</p><p></p>

          Ibaka, enfadado por los rumores que le acusan de mentir sobre su edad: "No nací en la selva"   
El hispano-congoleño Serge Ibaka, jugador de Toronto Raptors, se ha mostrado muy decepcionado y enfadado por los rumores que apuntan a que podría tener más edad de la que muestran sus documentos oficiales y ha asegurado que están "basados en estereotipos" y que son racistas, y ha recordado que no nació "en la selva".
          Over 130 Congolese nationals arrested in Uganda for illegal entry   

KASESE: Police in Kasese District are holding over 130 Congolese nationals for illegal entry into Uganda. Authorities say they entered into Uganda and stayed along the lake shores of Kayanja landing site on Lake George in Katwe-Kabatoro town council last week without proper clearance from the migration office.


          Ibaka acuerda quedarse con los Raptors   

Cuando Toronto recibió a Serge Ibaka antes de la fecha límite de canjes la temporada pasada, los Raptors dejaron en claro que no tenían la intención de dejarlo ir en verano durante la agencia libre.

Y ahora eso ha sido demostrado.

Ibaka accedió a las condiciones de un contrato por tres años y 65 millones de dólares para permanecer con los Raptors, indicó una persona familiarizada con las negociaciones.

La persona habló con el domingo bajo la condición de anonimato porque el acuerdo no puede ser firmado hasta que la moratoria entre temporadas de la NBA termine el próximo jueves.

Al retener al congoleño de 2,08 metros era una obvia prioridad para los Raptors, que también se encuentran en negociaciones para recontratar a su base estrella Kyle Lowry.

Ibaka, de 27 años, fue canjeado a Toronto de Orlando cerca del final de la temporada pasada por Terrence Ross y una selección de primera ronda del draft. Promedió 14,2 puntos y 6,8 rebotes en 23 partidos con los Raptors.

"Su estilo de juego se ajusta al nuestro", declaró el entrenador de los Raptors, Dwane Casey, cuando el intercambio se realizó.

Toronto claramente no ha cambiado de parecer.

Je m'intéresse depuis au moins un an à l'histoire de l'Afrique francophone contemporaine et plus exactement tout ce qui tourne autour des affaires louches du genre la françafrique. C'est donc avec intérêt que j'ai voulu lire cette série qui se passe au Katanga lors de la sécession avec le Congo Belge durant la décolonisation.

J'ai eu du plaisir à voir les magouilles entre les politiciens noirs et les hommes d'affaires blancs qui n'ont aucuns scrupules à faire engager des mercenaires pour faire leurs sales boulots. On est dans un monde pourri où plusieurs personnages sont manipulateurs et ont des objectifs diverses. J'ai bien embarqué dans l'histoire et puis vers le milieu j'ai été un peu moins enthousiasme. Les mercenaires ne sont pas franchement les personnages les plus intéressants du récit et je n'ai pas été captivé par leurs exploits. Heureusement les dernières pages sont prenantes et donne envie de lire la suite.

Un premier tome qui introduit bien les personnages et où il se passe pleins de choses. Cette série à du potentiel, mais pour l'instant à cause de passages moins intéressants je ne dirais pas que c'est un chef d'oeuvre et un des meilleurs albums de l'années. Je vais attendre la suite pour voir si cela mérite d'être considéré comme un immanquable.

          'Our future is slavery, West gets everything': RT documentary digs deep in mineral-rich, money-poor Congo   
RT Documentary travels to the vast, landlocked Democratic Republic of Congo, prized for its mineral resources, but plagued by centuries of colonial rule, dictatorship, civil wars and lawlessness, and meets people trying to make a living in one of the most desperate places on Earth. The documentary crew's key to understanding the country, seven times the size of Germany, was Bernard Kalume Buleri, born in 1960, the same year DRC was granted its independence from Belgium. Buleri served as an interpreter, guide, and finally the hero and symbol of the country, having been a direct participant in some of its bloodiest chapters. "I can't say that the Congolese, we are in control of our destiny. No, because the ones who benefit from our minerals are not the local population, but Western countries are the ones who are taking everything. They make themselves rich, while we are getting poorer and poorer," says Buleri.

          WATANZANIA 18 WATEKWA NA WAASI WA CONGO   
Waasi wanaodaiwa wa Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo (DRC) wamewateka madereva 21, wakiwamo Watanzania 18 wanaofanya kazi kwenye kampuni ya malori ya mizigo ya Alistair ya nchini.

Meneja usimamizi wa Tanzania na DRC wa kampuni ya Alistair , Anna Joyce Mbise aliliambia gazaeti la Mwananchi jana kuwa madereva hao walitekwa asubuhi ya Juni 29, baada ya mapambano kati ya askari wa Serikali ya Congo na waasi hao.

“Kwa mujibu wa maelezo ya madereva hao ni kwamba askari wa Serikali waliokuwa wanawasindikiza kabla ya msafara kuvamiwa, walizidiwa kwenye mashambulizi hayo ndipo wakatekwa,” alisema Mbise na kuongeza:

“Wametueleza kuwa hakuna aliyejeruhiwa katika tukio hilo, waasi wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vyema, lakini gari zetu tatu zimeharibika kwa risasi kutokana na mashambulizi hayo,” alisema.

Alisema kampuni hiyo imewasiliana na viongozi husika wa Serikali kwa kuandika barua Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, ili wasaidie madereva hao kuachiwa huru wakiwa salama.

“Tumejawa na hofu kuhusu usalama wao, kwani tunaamini kwamba askari wa jeshi la Serikali lazima wanajipanga kurejea kupambana ili kulikomboa eneo hilo, hapo tuna wasiwasi na usalama wa madereva hao ,” alisema.

Mratibu wa Shirikisho la Wasafirishaji Afrika Mashariki (FEARTA), Emmanuel Kakuyu alisema taarifa walizonazo ni kwamba madereva hao wamekumbwa na mkasa huo katika eneo la kijiji cha Lulimba kilichopo kati ya Ziwa Tanganyika na Kindu Manyema.

Alisema waasi hawa hawajawadhuru madereva hao, lakini alifafanua kuwa madereva watatu kati ya 21 wanatoka Uganda.

“Watekaji wamekuwa wakizungumza nao vizuri ikiwamo kuwahakikishia usalama wao wakidai kwamba hawana ugomvi nao, bali wana ugomvi na Serikali ya Congo,” alisema.

Umbali kati ya Lulimba na Kigoma ni kilomita 448, lakini ili ufike Lulimba ni lazima ulizunguke Ziwa Tanganyika upande wa mashariki mwa DRC.

Kaimu Mkurugenzi wa dawati la Afrika katika Wizara ya Mambo ya Nchi za Nje na Ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Suleiman Saleh alijibu kwa kifupi kwamba wamepokea taarifa za utekaji huo na tayari wameanza kushughulikia.

          NBA: Ibaka reste à Toronto   
L'international espagnol d'origine congolaise Serge Ibaka va signer un contrat de trois ans d'une valeur de 65 millions de dollars avec Toronto, rapporte dimanche la presse américaine.

The Toronto Raptors and Serge Ibaka have agreed to terms on a three-year, $65 million deal that will keep the free-agent big man north of the border, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ibaka’s contract suggests the Raptors could also be nearing an agreement to retain free-agent point guard Kyle Lowry, as USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt indicated late Saturday night. Re-signing Ibaka and Lowry suggests Toronto will be back in the hunt for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference next season.

[Follow Ball Don’t Lie on social media: Twitter | Instagram | Facebook | Tumblr]

Ibaka averaged 14.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 31 minutes in 23 games as a starter after Toronto traded Terrence Ross and a first-round pick for the 27-year-old floor-spacing rim protector at the deadline. He posted similar numbers on the Raptors’ road to being swept in the second round.

Once considered an integral part of the Oklahoma City’s championship-contending core, the Thunder dumped his expiring contract to to the Orlando Magic at the 2016 NBA draft for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis — the same two pieces they just used to expire Paul George on an expiring deals.

A report last week indicated teams may have been hesitant about signing the Congo native to a lucrative contract over questions about whether he was indeed 27 years old. Ibaka vehemently denied those rumors on Saturday, and then reportedly agree to a three-year, less-than-max deal in Toronto.

The $20 million-plus price tag is a fair one in the modern NBA’s marketplace for Ibaka, even if he has slipped defensively since his heyday as a potential franchise cornerstone in the paint during OKC’s run to four conference finals in six years. Still an athletic specimen, he shot 39 percent on four 3-point attempts per game last season, and he’s only missed more than four games in a season once since his rookie year, making him an attractive power forward or center option in the pace-and-space era.

However, retaining him makes little sense if the Raptors do not intend to also re-sign Lowry, who shares an agent with Ibaka, because Toronto would be heading for a rebuild. The Raptors took a step back from their 2016 conference finals appearance even with Ibaka on the roster, and to lose him or Lowry could mean falling further in the standings. Keeping both at least means staying in the hunt.

Toronto just lost defensive stalwart and trade deadline acquisition P.J. Tucker to the Houston Rockets in free agency, and sixth man extraordinaire Patrick Paterson remains a free agent, but the Ibaka signing at least gives Raptors fans hope the team is ready to blow the team up completely in 2017-18.

          WHO tuyên bố chấm dứt dịch Ebola tại Cộng hòa Dân chủ Congo   

Tổ chức Y tế Thế giới (WHO) ngày 2/7 chính thức thông báo kết thúc đợt bùng phát dịch bệnh do virus Ebola (EVD) gây ra gần đây nhất tại Cộng hòa Dân chủ Congo làm 4 người tử vong và 4 người đã được chữa khỏi.

Congo đã chứng kiến 8 đợt bùng phát EVD kể từ khi phát hiện virus Ebola ở nước này vào năm 1976. Thông báo trên của WHO được đưa ra 42 ngày sau khi bệnh nhân Ebola cuối cùng được xác nhận nhiễm bệnh tại tỉnh Bas Uele, miền Bắc có kết quả xét nghiệm âm tính với bệnh này lần thứ hai.



Đợt dịch mới nhất đã làm tổng cộng 4 người tử vong, trong khi 583 người có tiếp xúc với bệnh nhân đã được theo dõi kỹ lưỡng theo đúng quy định, song không có dấu hiệu phát triển các triệu chứng của EVD.

          Women as wartime rapists: a new book explores 'the impossible'   

Academic Laura Sjoberg argues that our gendered assumptions about sexual violence in conflict limit our understanding of these crimes.

All rights reserved.Sexual violence in conflict – and the attention it receives – is not new. Every generation grows up with its horror stories. For mine, it has been ISIS; for my mother's, the Bosnian war and the Rwandan genocide; for my grandmother's, World War Two. Wartime sexual violence is understood as a crime specifically against women, by men. Women are overwhelming named as the victims, and men, overwhelmingly, the perpetrators. This focus is also not unique to conflict zones, and it has rendered invisible male victims, female perpetrators, and violence that doesn’t fit within wider patriarchal, heterosexual narratives.

Into this complex area dives academic Laura Sjoberg, in a provocative book entitled Women as Wartime Rapists: Beyond Sensation and Stereotyping, published late last year. While recognising that women who commit rape during war are a tiny minority of perpetrators, Sjoberg’s book puts these outliers under the microscope and makes a convincing case that our gendered assumptions about sexual violence in conflict limit our understanding of these crimes – and how to counter and prevent them.

Sjoberg’s book is theoretically dense and at times deeply distressing. It opens with the monstrous story of Nazi war criminal Ilse Koch – “the bitch of Buchenwald,” who became infamous globally for the sexual abuse, torture and murder of inmates in the concentration camp in Germany that her husband Karl commanded. Among Koch’s “most well-known” abuses, Sjoberg notes, were: “collecting the tattooed skin of women prisoners as home decorations, crafting lampshades and other household goods from the skin of Buchenwald victims”.

Koch was jailed for life, for the murder of prisoners, private enrichment and embezzlement – but not sexual violence. Though the Nuremberg trials heard evidence of mass rape, it did not prosecute these crimes. Ghoulish atrocities were perpetrated on an extraordinary scale in the Holocaust, and up to 10% of SS guards were women. But, as Sjoberg notes, Koch was one of only a handful of women remembered for her role – portrayed as a devil, a sensationalised abomination but also as an affront to womankind; her existence rendered “impossible” by the gendered prism through which we view sexual crime.

...the gendered prism through which we view sexual crime.

Associate professor of political science at the University of Florida, Sjoberg has written several books about political violence and women. She told me that it was seeing pictures of Lynndie England – the young female US reservist who was photographed holding a leash attached to the body of a naked Iraqi prisoner in Abu Ghraib – that prompted her journey towards writing Women as Wartime Rapists.

England was court-martialled and jailed in 2005 for her role in sexually abusing the prisoners. Sjoberg said she “was on the front page of the Los Angeles Times in 2003 and I sat staring at the page for 20 minutes, because it didn’t make sense to me. And then I stared at it for another three hours because I couldn’t figure out why it didn’t made sense to me. And I think I have spent the last decade making sense of it”.

Her book presents evidence of women’s culpability in sexual violence from the Armenian genocide to the seemingly unending though consistently under-reported conflict in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where one 2010 survey of more than 1,000 households found that 40% of women — and 10% of men — who said they were subjected to sexual violence were assaulted by a woman.

Sjoberg also dissects the various roles women are ‘given’ in patriarchal narratives of war: as peaceful vessels and innocent civilians in need of protection; as the reason to go to war in the first place (to fight for their virtue or their innocence); or as “available to soldiers”. Sjoberg says the latter of these can consist of providing food, entertainment, shelter — or being sexually “available” as “prostitutes, bush wives or rape victims”.

"if female perpetrators of sexual violence are invisible, then so are their victims"

Sjoberg takes as a case study the Armenian genocide which she says is often described as carried out by men, against men and women. She digs up studies that complicate this and reveal the role of “women perpetrators of genocide generally and of genocidal sexual violence”. She presents testimonies from living survivors who tell how women were involved in beating, killing, sexually violating and selling other women and girls into sexual slavery. When the genocide ended, a practice continued of selling girls who had been orphaned as 'brides'. Women tied up and tattooed other, enslaved, women and girls.

In Nazi Germany, Sjoberg also looks at the role of tens of thousands of nurses who participated in the forcible sterilisation of about half a million people. She acknowledges that this is “different from rape,” but includes it as a large-scale example to further emphasise her point: if female perpetrators of sexual violence are invisible, then so are their victims. “It’s a lot harder to identify women perpetrators”, Sjoberg tells me. “Even from feminist readings of sexual violence in conflict there is this feeling that wartime sexual violence, and sexual violence generally, is really the lynchpin of women’s oppression. It’s kind of one of the last stones unturned”.

"It’s kind of one of the last stones unturned”

Pauline Nyiramasuhuko, former Rwandan minister of family and women’s affairs, was the first woman to be charged with genocidal rape at an international criminal court. In 2011 she was jailed for life for her role in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda that killed an estimated 800,000 people. Testimony against her described her openly ordering subordinates, including her son, to “get rid of all the Tutsis”, as well as directly commanding troops to commit rape and establish a system of sexual slavery.

“While most women perpetrators remain excluded from both official and unofficial narratives of the conflicts in which they commit sexual violence, Nyiramasuhuko received a disproportionate amount of attention,” Sjoberg writes in her book. “This attention has combined gendered and racialised exoticism and framed Nyiramasuhuko as “other” to femininity and civilisation”. This allows a double move of distancing her from the “ideal-typical” woman, incapable of the violence she committed, and (similar to how Koch was presented) inviting ugly discussions of supposed flaws in femininity that make the sort of atrocities she committed possible.

The media’s reporting of Nyiramasuhuko’s case was distinctly gendered — as were witnesses’ testimonies at her trial. Sjoberg notes that Nyiramasuhuko was alleged to have said, as a reason to kill Tutsi women, that they were “stealing our [Hutu] husbands”. Sjoberg insists we must see women who commit acts of sexual violence in conflict in a more nuanced and less sensationalised way — and that part of this is rejecting patriarchal views of women as vessels of peace and purity.

“We can all be complicit actually. Sex oppression can be perpetrated by anyone, including women."

The media’s representations of female victims of ISIS sex crimes provide a contemporary example of what Sjoberg is concerned about. Press coverage "has been very narrowly focused on the victimisation, with gratuitous focus on details of the sexual violence they suffered," says Sherizaan Minwalla, a human rights lawyer at the American University’s Washington College of Law and an activist with the Iraq Gender Justice group which has criticised how mainly Yazidi women survivors are routinely presented as ruined and devastated victims.

“This has been to the detriment of the survivors who also have stories to tell about how they showed courage and strength in the face of ISIS militants and when they escaped, and still in displacement", Minwalla told me. The courage of these women and girls has been publicly drowned out amid the cacophony of grisly descriptions of horrors endured — meanwhile the role that ISIS women played their trafficking, enforced captivity and torture has also been largely ignored.

Whilst recording the testimonies of more than a dozen Yazidi former ISIS captives, elements of my own reporting were complicit in this. I did not ask about the role of ISIS women in violence — though I did ask if any women of the families that held captives had helped them to escape. The answer was always the same; no, none of the women helped. Sometimes the women treated them worse than their male captors, they said, describing jealous rage or frightening outbursts if unending domestic chores were incomplete.

“Why do we believe that women will always been on the side of other women?”, Sjoberg asks. “Because this is hard stuff. Really hard”. She warns: “We can all be complicit actually. Sex oppression can be perpetrated by anyone, including women...Women are just people too, and people do bad things.”

           Lessons from farmers and indigenous women: cultivate democracy   

Learning to live in harmony with the land is co-constituent to human rights activism. Jennifer Allsopp reports for 50.50 from the second day of the 2017 Nobel Women's Initiative conference.

we have stood in defense of lands, of waters,

for our sons,

for our daughters

for something bigger than ourselves

       Beginning of the poem ‘For the Mamas on the Frontlines’

Helen Knott is a human rights activist from Prophet River First Nations in Canada. With the words above she welcomed international feminist activists to the second day of the Nobel Women’s Initiative gathering in Dusseldorf, Germany. Throughout the day, indigenous women at the conference reminded the participants from around the world that learning to live in harmony with the land is not just something that accompanies human rights activism, but is co-constituent. How, delegates asked themselves, can we learn from indigenous communities and environmental activists to cultivate democracy in our different spheres?

Khadijeh Moghaddam, a woman’s rights and environmental activist from Iran joined Helen in paying homage to intergenerational activism in her presentation to delegates. It was her mother, she explained in a powerful speech, who inspired her to become involved in the environmental movement. Her mother is now 100 years of age, and still fighting for climate justice. This is not an easy space to occupy in Iran, Khadijeh explains, “it’s like walking on a tightrope. You have to be vigilant for you could be pushed off at any time.” In this context, working collectively is not just an ethical choice, it is the only way to stay safe.

Participants at the conference bring a wealth of knowledge when it comes to environmental activism and collective struggle. Yanar Mohammed, an Iraqi activist, began her speech yesterday by lamenting that it is natural resources (the oil) that has been the source of all the country’s problems. “75% of oil from Iraq goes to the multinational companies and 25% goes to our corrupt government.” The Iraqi oil, she insists, was never “ours”. "There’s always a colonial power that comes and sucks up our resources and leaves us poor.”

Julienne Lusenge from the Democratic Republic of the Congo nods as Yanar speaks. It’s the same story. Congo began its independence under the reign of Leopold II when citizens were forced to extract resources for exportation to Belgium or face violence. “He cut the arms off our ancestors because of the resources there”, she explains, “now our women experience brutal rapes, violence, executions.” Like the oil of Iraq, she laments, “the resources don’t belong to Congo. They nourish the kids of everywhere else except the Congo.”

She asks us to picture kids with mobile phones and technologies harbouring the precious minerals, unaware of their bloody origins. “Sometimes,” Julienne reflects, “we wonder if we are suffering because of these riches that we have.” An estimated 6 million people have been killed since 1998 in this well-documented economic war over resources. “Can we not develop trade and business cooperatively?” she asks.

In the green Senegalese region of Casamance it is not just war but also agribusiness that is threatening the land and natural resources, agricultural activist Mariama Songo explains to me later during a break in the proceedings. International companies are seizing land, family plots, and breaking the local cooperatives.

“They take our seeds and sell them back to us as 'intellectual property’,” she explains. “We try to tell them you didn’t create that, that it is inherited, it belongs to us, in the plural. For us seeds don’t belong to anyone. They’re common property.”

She describes how the seeds that farmers are sold by big business, and the chemicals required to grow them, are poorly adapted to the local environment. They can contaminate the whole ecosystem.

Mariama tells me she identifies with the threat to food sovereignty facing indigenous women in Canada. In her intervention, Helen Knott outlined a similar dynamic of contamination among her community where the unfettered advance of new industries – yes, even under Trudeau, she stressed – is stealing land from communities and causing new forms of pollution. “There's a contamination of food" she lamented, "you worry you’re contaminating your kids giving them moose meat or fish from the river.” The river near where Helen lives currently has two big dams, and a third is under construction. But the spaces to resist such developments are shrinking. She is currently facing legal charges for her role in a land defense camp.

In Senegal, Mariama works with youth and women to inspire them to see sustainability as a nobel pursuit; she teaches them to grow food and make a living from agriculture. For her, farming is inherently linked to collectivism. As girls in Casamance they would form seasonal collectives, she reminisces, and go around the different households helping with various tasks: the harvest, composting, fertilising. Mariama had the idea that the girls could pool the pocket money they received for the tasks and do something together. “We held parties,” she jokes, “amazing parties". They also pooled their resources to buy school materials.

Mariama explains her passion for farming as a way to both survive and thrive. “In the war-ravaged landscape of Casamance, growing your own food gives you a crucial sense of autonomy.”

She tells me with pride how she recently worked with an older woman to find a natural treatment for a microscopic worm in the earth that was destroying plants and aborting the growth of new seeds. “We didn’t need outside help,” she explains, “it’s about expertise and experience, pratique et savoir.” Mariama, whose husband was murdered in the Casamance war, calls farming a “practice in democracy."

The idea of working with nature as a practice of autonomy and democracy is an idea that echoes throughout the day. Veronica Kelly, a peace activist from Ireland remarks that in Ireland now the concept of meitheal is making a resurgence. The word describes the way at harvest time people gather together to help one another. It’s the literal ‘hay day’. “The weather is so changeable that when a fine day come everyone has to rush and help from place to place,” Veronica explains.

It’s a tempting metaphor for the network created by the Nobel Women’s Initiative, formed ten years ago to promote peace with justice and equality.

          Succession à Etienne Tshisekedi. CNSA : les candidats convoqués aujourd’hui par le Chef de l ' Etat !   
*Déjà, après l’ultimatum de 48 heures lancé aux parties prenantes, le 12 mai 2017,  le Rassemblement de Félix Tshisekedi avait rejeté l’offre. A Kasa-Vubu, Joseph Olenghankoy, derrière son aile du Rassemblement, n’aurait, visiblement,  aucune raison  de  rater l’occasion de  chercher à coiffer la tête du CNSA.  Au Front pour le Respect de la Constitution, Eve Bazaïba et Fidèle Babala, deux fidèles de Bemba Gombo,  étaient, eux aussi,  engagés dans la course. De son côté, peu avant  sa dernière prise de position face aux messages des Evêques, Kamerhe, toujours Vital,  ne jurait que sur la conquête de la Présidence du CNSA, au nom de l’Opposition signataire de l’Accord du 18 octobre, conclu à la Cité de l’Union Africaine, sous l’égide de Kodjo, l’ex-Premier Ministre togolais désigné Facilitateur par l’UA et appuyé par un Groupe International d’Accompagnement au Dialogue. Une candidate à classer dans les rangs des  ‘’Outsiders’’, en la personne d’Odette Babandoa Etoa s’était aussi signalée, pour rivaliser d’ardeur avec quiconque serait intéressé à la bataille de succession à Etienne Tshisekedi wa Mulumba, dans cette affaire du CNSA.

Trame

Aujourd’hui  à 12 heures, tous  les candidats délégués au CNSA  sont attendus  au Palais du Peuple. Minaku et Kengo, les  Présidents de deux Chambres du Parlement   qui, le 27 avril dernier, avaient officié la cérémonie de   signature d’un Arrangement Particulier, fortement critiqué par les Evêques et  contesté au Rassemblement de Limete, reviennent à la charge.

Cette fois-ci, le Président de la République, Joseph Kabila Kabange, leur a  confié la mission de co-présider la toute première réunion du Conseil National de Suivi de l’Accord. Ce sera la première du genre, depuis qu’au Centre Interdiocésain, les parties prenantes aux discussions directes, tenues du 8 décembre 2016 au 27 mars 2017, avaient jeté les bases d’un consensus autour de la co-gestion de la transition et des mesures de décrispation politique en vue des élections libres, transparentes, démocratiques et apaisées fixées  à l’horizon   fin décembre 2017.

De quoi s’agit-il ?

En principe, il pourrait s’agir, au cours de cette rencontre, d’une séance de validation des mandats. Puis, l’on va, certainement,  passer à la phase de la constitution du  Bureau Provisoire, conformément aux options qui avaient été levées  et consignées dans l’Accord de la Saint Sylvestre.

Missions

Les tâches  dévolues au CNSA sont connues. L’une des principales est celle liée notamment, à l’évaluation du processus électoral. Et, là-dessus, l’Accord du 31 décembre 2016 prévoyait, en effet, que la CENI, le gouvernement et le CNSA soient autour d’une même table, pour évaluer le processus électoral et tracer, le cas échéant, des perspectives nouvelles en termes des dates et des délais.

A présent, alors que les jours passent, le processus avance inexorablement vers les six derniers mois de cette rallonge d’une année (12 mois) octroyée aux parties prenantes pour la tenue des élections apaisées.

Or, à ce jour, en l’absence de la révision de la loi électorale ainsi que des lois essentielles dont celle portant répartition des sièges, en l’absence du calendrier électoral et du fichier électoral, comment va-t-on convoquer le corps électoral, à fin octobre 2017 ? Comment va-t-on gérer la fin de l’année 2017, si jamais les élections n’étaient pas organisées ? Est-ce pour cela que l’on veut maintenant installer le CNSA alors que loi y relative  qui nécessitait, pourtant, qu’une session extraordinaire soit convoquée, n’a même pas été apprêtée, examinée, ni adoptée ?

Come back

Normalement, Etienne Tshisekedi wa Mulumba, désigné de façon ‘’intuitu personae’’, aurait dû présider à la destinée du CNSA,  cette importante institution d’appui à la démocratie, depuis le 26 janvier 2017, n’eût été les  foucades de  l’embolie  pulmonaire qui, contre toute attente et en dépit de tous les efforts des médecins et les prières de ses affidés, auront réussi à l’emporter, le 1er février 2017 à 17H22’ à la Clinique Sainte Elisabeth, à Bruxelles, en Belgique.

D’ailleurs, jusqu’à ce jour, puisqu’il n’a toujours pas encore  été inhumé, la date du rapatriement de son corps relève tellement  d’un   mystère  que devant  l’imbroglio, sa famille biologique et politique,  serait tentée, une fois de plus, de fixer unilatéralement une nouvelle date.   Le lieu d’inhumation ainsi que d’exposition ne posant plus problème, selon un des ceux qui avaient pris langue avec les autorités congolaises, à ce sujet.

« La terre nous en apprend plus long sur nous-mêmes que tous les livres. Parce qu’elle nous résiste. »
Antoine De Saint-Exupéry (Terre des hommes)

Depuis quelques jours, le paysage politique congolais donne l’image d’une véritable tour de Babel. Les faits et les informations qui s’y succèdent montrent que notre pays, la République démocratique du Congo, est entrée dans une espèce de tourbillon effréné qui n’augure rien de bon pour tous ceux qui ont été les artisans de la descente aux enfers du peuple congolais. Le sujet considéré tabou pendant longtemps dans le débat politique, mais qui défraie subitement la chronique ces derniers temps, est celui de la nationalité des autorités « congolaises ».
Depuis que cette boite de pandore a été ouverte (par accident ?), les congolais vont de découverte en découverte de ce gros boa que chacun éventre avec son couteau ! Rwandais et burundais par ici, italiens, belges et zambiens par là…. Les congolais ne savent plus qui est qui ! Et pourtant, ils vivent bien dans un pays où la loi fondamentale stipule clairement que «la nationalité congolaise est une et exclusive ».
Ce capharnaüm confirme bien que cette bande de hors la loi sans scrupules qui s’est accaparé de nos institutions manipule cette feuille de choux qu’elle appelle « Constitution » à son propre gré. Les articles de la « constitution » ne sont évoqués que lorsqu’ils servent les intérêts des uns ou des autres. Et le comble est que même certains membres de la Communauté internationale se livrent à ce jeu. C’est pourquoi, l’APARECO et son Président monsieur Honoré Ngbanda ne cessent d’alerter le peuple congolais sur la crise identitaire comme étant l’une des causes fondamentales des guerres que subit la RDC depuis 1996 à ce jour. Et ce combat, nous comptons le mener jusqu’au bout ! La RDC compte neuf pays voisins avec lesquels elle partage des clans et des tribus qui s’étendent de part et d’autre des neuf frontières. Si nous n’affirmons pas et ne protégeons pas notre identité aujourd’hui, nous exposons la souveraineté de notre territoire national et l’identité de notre peuple pour les années à venir.
Devant cette ambiance de confusion et de manœuvres frauduleuses, L’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE a préféré épinglé le cas qui fait le plus parler de lui. Il s’agit, on s’en doute bien, du cas de Moise Katumbi, l’une des grandes figures symptomatiques de la kabilie sur qui le sort semble s’acharner à ce sujet. Rattrapé par ses propres mensonges, et de plus en plus empêtré dans ses règlements de compte avec son allié et complice Hyppolite Kanambe alias Joseph Kabila qui, soit dit en passant, est le premier faussaire parmi tous, Moïse Katumbi se débat à travers la presse, comme un diable dans un bénitier, pour tenter de convaincre l’opinion de sa congolité. Mais avec une série de mensonges qu’il enchaîne les uns après les autres, l’ancien gouverneur du Katanga s’enfonce chaque jour comme dans du sable mouvant !
Et la dernière sortie médiatique de son nouvel « avocat », Olivier Kamitatu n’a fait qu’empirer son dossier au lieu de le justifier. Au cours de sa récente conférence de presse, ce dernier a tenté de défendre son client Moïse Katumbi contre les dernières révélations faites à son sujet par le tonitruant ministre de la justice, Alexis Tambwe Mwamba. Ceux qui suivent de près l’actualité de la RDC, ont rapidement pu se rendre compte que les assertions faites par Olivier Kamitatu, loin d’extirper le litige, ne feront que compliquer la situation déjà fragile de Moïse Katumbi. Vues l’intelligence et l’expérience du « Porte-parole», d’aucuns se demandent même s’il ne l’aurait pas fait à dessein pour rendre service à « Kabila » son véritable «patron» dont il représente les intérêts au sein du RASSOP. En effet, l’ancien président du parlement congolais a affirmé que «Moise Katumbi n’a jamais eu d’autres nationalités que la nationalité congolaise» (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLwnWJJyhfw 29ème min)
Malheureusement pour lui, quand on veut mentir il faut avoir une bonne mémoire, ce qui de toute évidence n’est ni son cas, ni celui de Katumbi dont il est venu assurer la défense. L’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE a donc choisi à cet effet, de rappeler ci-dessous quelques faits saillants du dossier pour rafraichir la mémoire des congolais.
Moise Katumbi et le Président zambien Rupiah Banda
Une interview de Moise Katumbi et une dépêche de l’AFP datée du 07 mars 2007 attestent sa nationalité …zambienne !
Lorsqu’il prétend que Moïse Katumbi n’a jamais joui d’une autre nationalité que la nationalité congolaise, son porte-parole feint d’oublier que nous vivions à une époque où la haute technologie fourni des archives authentiques qui contredisent ses affirmations. En effet le 10 février 2016 l’APARECO avait publié une dépêche de l’AFP datant du 07 mars 2007 reprenant les propos des autorités gouvernementales zambiennes qui affirmait ceci au sujet de Moise Katumbi :
«…la Zambie a demandé à la République Démocratique du Congo (RDC) d’extrader le gouverneur de la province congolaise du Katanga (sud-est), accusé de corruption et détournement de fonds publics ». (…) «Max Nkole, chef de l’unité spéciale de lutte contre la corruption, a déclaré que le ministère zambien des Affaires étrangères avait transmis la requête à Kinshasa afin que Moïse Katumbi, qui a la double nationalité, zambienne et congolaise, soit extradé le plus rapidement possible » !
Comme nous l’avions écrit dans l’article de l’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE : « (…) de mémoire d’homme, nous ne nous rappelons pas qu’un seul Congolais aie levé la voix à l’époque pour vilipender l’AFP ou les autorités zambiennes qui, elles, détiennent des archives qui prouvent que Moïse Katumbi est d’origine zambienne! Dès lors, étant donné que les différentes constitutions congolaises qui se sont succédée ne reconnaissent pas la double nationalité aux citoyens congolais, nous pouvons confirmer sans peur de nous tromper que Moïse Katumbi ne peut pas détenir la nationalité congolaise qui, elle, est exclusive ! »
Voici ci-dessous la dépêche complète de l’AFP :
La Zambie demande à la RDC d’extrader un gouverneur accusé de corruption
AFP / 07 mar. 07 – 12h49
LUSAKA, 7 mars 2007 (AFP) – La Zambie a demandé à la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) d’extrader le gouverneur de la province congolaise du Katanga (sud-est) accusé de corruption et détournement de fonds publics, a-t-on appris mercredi de source officielle. Max Nkole, chef de l’unité spéciale de lutte contre la corruption, a déclaré que le ministère zambien des Affaires étrangères avait transmis la requête à Kinshasa afin que Moses Katumbi, qui a la double nationalité zambienne et congolaise, soit extradé le plus rapidement possible.

“Les suspects dont l’extradition est requise sont le gouverneur du Katanga en RDC, Katumbi, et (l’ancien patron des services de renseignement zambiens) Xavier Chungu”, a-t-il précisé dans un communiqué. Katumbi est accusé d’avoir détourné des fonds publics lors de contrats négociés avec son proche allié, l’ancien président zambien Frederick Chiluba (1991-2001), lui-même inculpé pour plusieurs affaires de corruption et de détournement de fonds publics. Les affaires et les biens de Katumbi en Zambie, qui comprennent une pêcherie et des minoteries, ont été confisqués au profit de l’Etat après sa fuite en RDC il y a environ trois ans. Max Nkole a ajouté que Lusaka cherchait à arrêter Chungu, qui a fui le pays et est soupçonné de s’être réfugié dans la RDC voisine. Chiluba, Chungu et Katumbi sont aussi accusés d’une fraude au détriment de l’Etat zambien d’un montant d’environ 25 millions de dollars lors d’un accord d’armement approuvé par l’ancien chef d’Etat.
Et ce n’est pas tout, le 03 Août 2016,après avoir poursuivi ses enquêtes sur le même sujet, l’APARECO avait publié, toujours via L’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE, deux autres documents qui attestent les origines zambiennes de Katumbi :
  1. Sous le titre « Dans une interview accordée en 2007, Moise Katumbiavoue lui-même ses origines zambiennes ! » http://www.info-apareco.com/2017/05/06/moise-katumbi-confirme-ses-origines-zambiennes/, l’APARECO a relayé d’abord un article paru sur un site zambien « Maravi » en Mars 2007 http://maravi.blogspot.fr/2007/03/katumbi-is-my-nephew-like-it-or-not.html.Il y est repris textuellement les propos du chef coutumier zambien Mwata Kazembe qui affirme que Moise Katumbi est son neveu.
  2. L’APARECO a également relayé à la même date une interview de Moise Katumbi diffusée le 25 février 2007 par le même site zambien «Maravi», et dans laquelle Katumbi confirme lui-même sans ambages ses origines zambiennes. Quant à la manière dont il aurait obtenu ensuite la nationalité congolaise, Katumbi se contente de dire simplement qu’il a « récupéré sa nationalité congolaise », sans plus ! Mais ce faisant, il reconnait ipso facto qu’il ne l’avait pas ou qu’il ne l’avait plus à un moment donné. Question : quelle démarche officielle a-t-il donc entreprise pour acquérir de nouveau la nationalité congolaise supposée perdue ? Mystère !
Tous ces faits constituent un faisceau d’éléments qui contredisent sans ambiguïté les affirmations gratuites d’Olivier Kamitatu visant à blanchir son client sans preuve. Peut-il expliquer aux congolais pourquoi la mère de Katumbi, comme ce dernier le dit lui-même dans son interview, avait envoyé son fils au consulat de Zambie à Lubumbashi pour ses démarches administratives ? Peut-il prétendre que les autorités zambiennes auraient osé déclarer publiquement que Moïse Katumbi est citoyen zambien sans disposer au préalable des documents d’état zambien authentiques ?
Voici l’extrait de l’interview traduit par L’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE, reprenant les propos de Moise Katumbi et diffusé sur notre site en Août 2016 :
Q : Etais tu congolais lorsque tu es arrivé en Zambie ?
A : Cette question vous devriez la poser au Mwata (le vieux chef Mwata Kazembe).Le Mwata est mon oncle du côté de ma mère. Vous savez, de la province de Luapula
Q : Le Mwata actuel ?
A : Même l’ancien Mwata. C’est la même famille. La famille Chinvanta. Il y a beaucoup de zambiens qui sont nés ici, il y a beaucoup de congolais qui sont nés en Zambie. Vous comprenez ? Alors ces gens veulent dire des choses qui les arrangent (…)
Q : Donc, la question de savoir si vous étiez…
A : Je suis entré en Zambie initialement avec une autorisation d’investissement, d’où j’ai acheté ma chambre froide et tout. Vous comprenez ? Et j’avais mon permis. En ce moment-là j’avais quelques problèmes avec le gouvernement congolais. Je n’avais pas de passeport. En Zambie on m’a donné un passeport provisoire que j’ai abandonné après avoir récupéré mon passeport congolais. Et ma mère m’a dit que je pouvais aller au consulat zambien à Lubumbashi et à partir de ce moment le traitement que j’ai reçu m’a poussé à me dire, non je vais récupérer ma nationalité congolaise. Maintenant j’ai ma nationalité congolaise.
Malade imaginaire ou complice de « Kabila » et du système en place ?
Dans la série des propos tant mensongers que contradictoires débités par Moïse Katumbi et qui se retournent se retournent aujourd’hui contre lui, il y a aussi sa fameuse déclaration faite dans l’émission « Grand Angle » de TV5 en juillet 2016. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6Qmz29H7J0&feature=youtu.be
Invité par cette chaine francophone après que la « justice congolaise » l’ait autorisé à sortir du pays pour aller poursuivre ses soins à l’étranger, Moise Katumbi a accusé le gouvernement congolais d’avoir tenté de l’empoisonner. Et dans la foulée, il a annoncé qu’il publierait incessamment, en guise de preuve, les résultats des analyses médicales qu’il venait effectuer en Allemagne et en Grande Bretagne. Près d’un an plus tard, les Congolais attendent toujours … !
Mais le 20 juin dernier, il y a eu un nouveau rebondissement, le Parquet, via le Procureur général Flory Kabange Numbi, a subitement informé Moise Katumbi et l’opinion que l’autorisation qui lui avait été accordée de quitter le territoire congolais pour des soins médicaux lui était désormais retirée. Pour justifier sa décision incongrue, le Procureur argue que l’ancien gouverneur n’a pas respectée «l’obligation de réserve» qui conditionnait cette «faveur» de la part de la justice congolaise (entendez « Joseph Kabila lui-même). Nous reproduisons ce document ci-dessous.
Quel que soit l’issu de cette saga juridico-médicale, elle soulève une question qui hante tout congolais qui observe les méandres de la politique nationale. Par quelle magie Moise Katumbi a-t-il pu ainsi bénéficier de cette faveur particulière du «raïs» d’aller se soigner à l’étranger alors que cette faveur est refusé à d’autres prisonniers politiques congolais dont les faits à leur charge sont nettement plus légères et l’état de santé plus grave ? Ceci lorsqu’on sait que Moïse Katumbi est poursuivi, entre autres faits, pour atteinte à la sureté de l’Etat. Pourquoi cette figure de la kabilie a-t-il pu bénéficier de cette facilité et pas les autres prisonniers congolais qui croupissent en prison sans aucune possibilité de se soigner convenablement, ni en RDC ni ailleurs ?

L’ŒIL DU PATRIOTE avait déjà apporté un début de réponse à cette question. En effet, Katumbi et « Joseph Kabila » sont les deux faces d’une même pièce de monnaie. Ils sont les deux bras et les deux jambes du système qui vise à faire perdurer le régime d’occupation installé en RDC. Actuellement, leurs maitres communs, que d’aucuns appellent «décideurs» tentent simplement de remplacer l’ancienne marionnette, «Joseph Kabila» devenu incontrôlable, par une nouvelle marionnette plus malléable, à savoir Moise Katumbi. Le problème est que les «décideurs» ont décidé que pour mieux contrôler les ressources nationales de la RDC, il ne faut plus un vrai congolais à la tête du Congo, mais bien un étranger, pour que celui-ci ne puisse s’appuyer sur le peuple congolais, mais sur leur seul soutien pour espérer se maintenir au pouvoir. Ainsi quelques soient les rivalités de circonstances qui apparaissent entre «Kabila» et Katumbi, ils demeurent tous les deux membres du même sérail soutenus par le même lobby tutsi power et obéissant aux mêmes donneur d’ordre. Si « Kabila » avait laissé sortir K
atumbi malgré la gravité de la tension entre eux à cette époque-là, c’est parce que « Kabila » avait reçu des ordres d’en haut. Suivez mon regard ! Tout le reste n’est que du cinéma.

Certains congolais oublient trop vite. Rappelons donc que selon le «plan Mokolo wa Pombo», la «taupe», pour être crédible, devait subir la colère du « raïs » pour mieux pénétrer et neutraliser toute l’opposition.
Katumbi vient de réussir cette phase en la mettant sous sa coupe via l’UDPS, grâce à l’OPA qu’il a ré
ussie avec l’aide et la complicité de la famille Tshisekedi. Et au vu de tous les éléments relevés ci-dessus, il appartient à l’élite congolaise de tirer toutes les conséquences qui s’imposent. Aujourd’hui, pour vivre et pouvoir s’affirmer en tant que nation à l’aire de la mondialisation, tous les peuples du monde ressentent cette obligation de renforcer et d’affirmer leur identité, au-delà de ce magma mondial. Et pour y parvenir, le meilleur moyen est celui d’avoir des institutions fortes, respectées, capables de protéger et de garantir la souveraineté nationale contre toute sorte de prédation extérieure.
Aux congolais de se réveiller et de protéger leur pays.

          Un navire affrété par les LMC accoste avec 3.600 tonnes des marchandises à Boma    
Rome Trader, un navire battant pavillon anversois affrété par les Lignes maritimes congolaises (LMC), a accosté mercredi au port de Boma avec une cargaison de 3.600 tonnes des marchandises à bord, a indiqué samedi à l’ACP le représentant des LMC à Boma, M. Wampilukila.







Selon ce dernier, cette cargaison est composée d’un nombre important des véhicules et des conteneurs chargés en provenance du port d’Anvers.








2.800 tonnes des marchandises constituant la cargaison de ce navire sont en cours de déchargement au port de Boma, tandis que 800 tonnes autres sont destinées au port international de Matadi, a-t-il précisé.


          Commémoration à Butembo du premier anniversaire du décès de l’Abbé Apollinaire Malumalu Muholongu    


Le premier anniversaire de la mort de l’Abbé Apollinaire Malumalu Muholongu, ancien président de la Comission Electorale nationale Indépendante (CENI), a été célébré le 30 juin 2017 avec faste à Butembo dans la province du Nord-Kivu, où l’événement a coïncidé avec le 57ème anniversaire de l’accession de la RDC à sa souveraineté tant nationale qu’internationale.










Une messe d’action de grâce a été dite en la cathédrale Mater Ecclésiae par Mgr Sikuli Melchisedeck, évêque du diocèse de Butembo-Beni qui a stigmatisé la crise du pays par le fait que beaucoup de citoyens se sont déjà éloignés de la volonté divine. Le Prélat a appelé chacun à s’engager pour que la République Démocratique du Congo soit sauvée et pacifiée, soulignant une responsabilité qui consiste à bâtir un pays plus beau qu’avant.




Parlant de l’Abbé Apollinaire Malumalu, le pasteur de Butembo-Beni a révélé que si ce prêtre était encore en vie, il aurait un message à lancer à tous le peuple congolais selon lequel « Mes frères et sœurs, grands et petits, ne vous servez pas de la Nation pour vos intérêts, servez la Nation. Il n’y a pas de plus grand bonheur, de plus grand honneur que de faire cela ».

De son côté, le Maire de Butembo, Sikuly’Uvasaka Makala, a souligné que le Très Haut a voulu que son Envoyé sur terre rende l’âme en cette date de la libération du Congo du joug colonial. Il a ainsi déclaré que son élévation au titre du Grand officier et admission dans l’ordre national héros nationaux KABILA-LUMUMBA par le président Joseph Kabila Kabange n’est pas un fait du hasard mais plutôt une volonté de Dieu.

L’autorité urbaine a spécifié que « l’homme ne vaut pas par ce qu’il a, mais ce qu’il est » avant de lancer un appel à toute la crème intellectuelle, à toute la jeunesse « de chercher et de suivre le chemin de l’Excellence pour honorer la mémoire de l’une des icônes du monde scientifique de notre patrie et de tirer de son enseignement un modèle à imiter pour continuer l’œuvre grandiose qu’il a amorcé ».

Après la célébration eucharistique, les participants dont la délégation du cabinet du Chef de l’Etat conduite par Léonard Kambere, conseiller chargé des questions parlementaires ; les membres du comité urbain de sécurité, les délégués de la CENI venus de tous les coins de la Province du Nord-Kivu, les autorités académique et les membres de la famille biologique, ont tous déposé des gerbes de fleur au mausolée de feu Abbé Malumalu pour témoigner de leur affection à l’illustre disparu et se souvenir des bienfaits à l’actif de cet Homme de Dieu.

Les festivités du jour se sont clôturées par une cérémonie de la pose de la première pierre, par le Maire de Butembo, de la construction du monument de feu Abbé Apollinaire Malumalu au rond point débaptisé de son nom par arrêté urbain pour les loyaux services rendu à la Nation congolaise de son vivant et sa contribution dans la formation de l’élite intellectuelle.






















A noter que ces activités ont été précédées par une journée scientifique le jeudi 29 juin 2017 dans la salle de la Paix au Cefades Site Horizon. Plusieurs thèmes ont été développés parmi lesquels « les éloges funèbres à l’abbé Apollinaire Malumalu » ; « entre redéfinition des rôles socio-politiques et construction d’une image épique » ; « l’Accompagnement des groupements paysans en milieu rural » ; « la démocratie selon Montesquieu dans l’Esprit des lois ; la culturalité des droits de l’homme » ; « la décentralisation comme cadre administratif de l’aménagement », « la conception politique traditionnelle Yira du Grand Chef Mwami dans la dynamique de son investiture en République Démocratique du Congo » et enfin « les informations du dictionnaire Kinande-Swahili ».

Plusieurs témoignages ont clôturé cette séance dont ceux de la famille biologique, des prêtres et de la CENI


          Avant Londrès, Katumbi avait échangé avec Sassou ( C-NEWS )    
L’entretien entre le président Brazza-congolais, Denis Sassou N’Guesso et le candidat rd-congolais à l’élection présidentielle, Moïse Katumbi Chapwe s’est déroulé il y a quelques jours dans un secret absolu, dans la capitale du Congo-Brazza.Rien à filtrer de cet entretien. Seulement, une source a dit à C-NEWS que Moïse Katumbi a désormais le soutien total du président Sassou.






C’est d’ailleurs connu dans tous les milieux informé que Sassou a déjà lâché Kabila.
          Après les derniers attentats contre eux, le prof Mbata et docteur Mukwege dans le viseur du régime Kabila   
Motif pour lequel les deux intellos rd-congolais sont visés : l’organisation le 30 juin, jour de l’indépendance de la RDC, d’une conférence débat avec comme thème : «mobilisation citoyenne pour le retour à l’ordre constitutionnel».






Le prof André Mbata et docteur Mukwege sont ainsi accusés d’avoir tenté un soulèvement populaire. «Nous sommes à la recherche de votre professeur et de docteur Mukwege. Ce sont eux que nous devons arrêter.

Pourquoi, organiser une conférence avec un tel thème le jour de l’indépendance?», ont fait remarquer les différents OPJ qui ont entendu sur PV, les étudiants membres de l’IDGPA, interpellés le 30 juin après l’annulation par la police et l’ANR –agence nationale de renseignement, de ladite conférence débat. Ces étudiants avaient arrêtés, puis acheminés au camp Lufungula, après une ronde dans quelques postes de service de sécurité de Kinshasa.







 Il faut rappeler que Mbata et Mukwege ont tous les deux été victimes des attentats. Tous les deux s’en sont sortis indemnes, pourtant des hommes armés avaient tiré sur eux à bout portant.
          RDC : Une voleuse d’enfants attrapée la main dans le sac à Kavumu    
Les éléments de la Police Nationale Congolaise (PNC) du commandement du district Lac Kivu ont mis la main, sur une voleuse d’enfant à Kavumu dans la partie nord du territoire de Kabare dans la province du Sud-Kivu.










Selon le commandant de la PNC district Lac Kivu, Isaac Mongali, la dame âgée de 49 ans a été arrêtée au parking de Kavumu avec une fillette de deux ans. Cette femme qui habite la commune de Bagira/Bukavu a commis son forfait au quartier de Kavumu.







Isaac Mongali a appelé à la vigilance des parents et à la collaboration de toute la population avec les éléments de l’ordre.


          Survival accusa la Wildlife conservation society: gravi abusi contro i pigmei del Congo   

Dopo aver attaccato duramente il Wwf per le sue politiche conservazionistiche che avverrebbero ai danni dei popoli autoctoni, Survival International pubblica un’inchiesta che rivelerebbe «abusi e sfratti nei confronti dei ‘Pigmei’ Bayaka e di altre tribù della foresta nella Repubblica del Congo» perpetrati da un’altra grande associazione protezionistica:  la Wildlife conservation society (Wcs), legata allo Zoo del Bronx di New York. “Pigmei” è un termine collettivo usato per indicare diversi popoli cacciatori-raccoglitori del bacino del Congo e di altre regioni dell’Africa centrale. Un nome che è considerato dispregiativo e quindi evitato da alcuni indigeni, ma allo stesso tempo viene utilizzato da altri come il nome più facile e conveniente per riferirsi a se stessi.

Survival ricorda che «La Wcs gestisce e ha contribuito a creare un parco nazionale nella terra dei Bayaka (nel 1993, il Parc National de Nouabalé-Ndoki, ndr)  senza che vi fosse il consenso della tribù, e ha stretto partnership con due compagnie di taglio del legname che lavorano nella terra della tribù».

Survival accusa la Wcs anche di finanziare le squadre anti-bracconaggio che impediscono ai Bayaka di entrare nelle terre ancestrali, e dice di aver «documentato decine di casi di molestie, pestaggi e persino torture».

Si tratterebbe di un caso di conflitto sempre più frequente tra esigenze delle popolazioni locali legate alle risorse naturali e la necessità di preservare la biodiversità di associazioni ambientaliste occuidentali’: come spiega l’Ong che difende i popoli indigeni,, «I Bayaka sono spesso accusati di “bracconaggio” perché cacciano per nutrire le loro famiglie. Gli indigeni hanno sottolineato come questo distolga l’attenzione dalla lotta ai veri bracconieri criminali collusi con funzionari corrotti. Le vittime includono bambini, anziani e persone disabili. Nel 2012, ad esempio, un uomo gravemente disabile è stato aggredito dai guardaparco. Nel maggio del 2016 un uomo è stato ricoverato in ospedale dopo che lui e altre quattro persone erano state picchiate brutalmente dai guardaparco. Gli accampamenti nella foresta vengono spesso distrutti, e gli indigeni vengono attaccati e torturati se entrano nelle terre che hanno vissuto e gestito per generazioni».

Wcs assegna ogni anno il “Teddy Roosevelt Award” per la conservazione e quest’anno il premio ha fatto molto discutere perché è stato ssegnato al presidente del Gabon Ali Bongo, non certo un fior di democratico e accusato di violazione dei diritti umani compiuti dal suo governo. Survival dice che «Secondo alcune fonti, Bongo avrebbe donato alla Wcs 3,5 milioni di dollari in cambio del premio». Alcuni Bayaka della Repubblica Centroafricana e della Repubblica del Congo hanno scritto una lettera aperta alla Wcs e ai suoi finanziatori nel 2016.  Survval afferma che «Gli abusi ai danni dei Bayaka da parte delle squadre finanziate dalla WCS sono stati documentati per almeno 18 anni, ma l’organizzazione non ha mai preso alcun provvedimento efficace per fermarli». Un uomo bayaka ha raccontato a Survival: «Se entri nel parco ti prendono e ti mettono in prigione. Anche fuori dal parco ci dicono “Ti uccideremo. Vattene, vattene, vattene’”».

Survival cita le denunce di ricercatori indipendenti e di organizzazioni di advocacy, tra cui Greenpeace,  secondo le quali «Nella regione il taglio del legname continua a ritmi insostenibili. Molti osservatori, tra cui le Nazioni Unite e l’organizzazione Congolese l’Observatoire congolais des droits de l’homme, denunciano le conseguenze degli abusi da parte dei guardaparco sin dal 2004, ma non è mai stata messa in atto nessuna misura efficace per evitarle».

Nel 2005 un uomo bayaka aveva testimoniato: «Abbiamo incontrato un altro uomo bianco [della WCS] che era venuto a dirci di smettere di cacciare e che i guardaparco avrebbero fatto in modo di farci smettere. Ora abbiamo paura di andare dentro alla foresta, nel caso un guardaparco ci scoprisse».

Il direttore generale di Survival, Stephen Corry, conclude: «La conservazione nel bacino del Congo è fondata sul furto di terra. I parchi nazionali sono creati nei territori dei popoli indigeni senza il loro consenso: si tratta di land grabbing (con un’etichetta ‘verde’)”.  E le grandi organizzazioni per la conservazione, come la Wcs, sono colpevoli di supportare questa situazione. Survival International sta facendo tutto il possibile per fermare questo ‘colonialismo verde’. È ora che i conservazionisti rispettino i diritti territoriali e la smettano di rubare le terre ancestrali dei popoli indigeni, e che ottengano un consenso reale per qualsiasi progetto che intendono condurre nelle terre indigene».

          La Cia-Agricoltori Italiani apre all’agricoltura sociale: Ases rinnova Statuto e mission   

La Confederazione italiana agricoltori (Cia) ha presentato durante il convegno “Agricoltori Solidarietà e Sviluppo: un nuovo welfare di comunità”, tenutosi a Roma, la nuova veste di Agricoltori, solidarietà e sviluppo, l’organizzazione non profit della Confederazione, che prevede «Un ampliamento di attività e scopo nell’ottica di un welfare di comunità, che va ad affiancare la cooperazione internazionale» e «L’agricoltura come ammortizzatore sociale e spazio solidale in cui le fasce più deboli della popolazione, come oggi i migranti, possono costruire nuove relazioni e ritagliarsi un posto nel mercato del lavoro».

Con questo rinnovamento dell’Ases di Cia-Agricoltori Italiani include tra le sue finalità istituzionali anche quelle legate all’agricoltura sociale. La Cia spiega che si tratta di «Un ampliamento di attività e di scopo per creare un soggetto unico, con il coinvolgimento delle aziende agricole associate a Cia, che metta al centro le persone svantaggiate e gli offra una possibilità di riscatto economico e sociale attraverso il settore primario».

Un passaggio e un rinnovamento testimoniato anche dal nome: da oggi, infatti, Ases diventa acronimo di Agricoltori solidarietà e sviluppo, a conferma del suo ampliamento degli obiettivi.

La presidente di Ases  Cinzia Pagni  ha sottolineato che «D’altra parte, affrontare la questione dei migranti, oltre all’inclusione e l’inserimento lavorativo di soggetti con diversi tipi di disagio, sono temi che riguardano da vicino quello che l’associazione ha rappresentato fino ad oggi: una Ong rivolta al sostegno di popolazioni e persone indigenti in ambito rurale mediante progetti di cooperazione internazionale. In vent’anni di attività, infatti, l’Ases-Cia ha completato quasi 60 progetti di cooperazione allo sviluppo, per la maggior parte cofinanziati dall’Ue con un’erogazione totale di circa 13 milioni di euro, operando in Paraguay, Brasile, Bolivia, Mozambico, Ruanda, Perù, Repubblica Democratica del Congo, Angola, Camerun, Costa d’Avorio e Senegal. Ora lo sforzo ulteriore è quello di affiancare ai programmi operativi e formativi di aiuto ai piccoli produttori agricoli dei Paesi in Via di Sviluppo, progetti di Agricoltura Sociale in Italia e nel mondo. Coniugando l’imprenditorialità agricola con il welfare e l’impegno per la collettività».

L’Italia è ai primi posti dello scenario europeo con all’attivo oltre 3.000 progetti e pratiche di agricoltura sociale e Ases evidenzia che sono «Tantissime le aziende che hanno già avviato questo nuovo modo di fare agricoltura, promuovendo l’offerta di servizi assistenziali e occupazionali a vantaggio di soggetti deboli (portatori di handicap, tossicodipendenti, detenuti, migranti, anziani, bambini) e di aree fragili (montagne e centri isolati). Un fenomeno in continua espansione che conta già 4 mila addetti su tutto il territorio nazionale e tocca un valore della produzione di 200 milioni di euro».

Il presidente della Cia, Dino Scanavino, conclude: «Questa transizione che vede protagonista l’Ases si rende necessaria in un periodo in cui il welfare di comunità è un’esigenza sempre più sentita e importante nel mondo rurale e civile».
