China and Angola

African Awakening A Marriage of Convenience?
Edited by Marcus Power, Ana Alves
This book focuses on the increased co-operation between Angola and China and shows that although relations with China might have bolstered regime stability and boosted the international standing of the Angolan government, China is not regarded as a long term strategic partner.

Features

African Union refuses to invade Burundi

Ann Garrison (2016-02-03)


cc Net
How serious is the political crisis in Burundi to warrant international armed intervention? Despite pressure from the West, the African Union last week decided not to send troops to the central African nation. But what the AU and everybody else won't discuss – at least openly - is the fact the crisis is the handiwork of external forces pushing for regime change in Bujumbura.

Pentagon plans for renewed war in Libya

Abayomi Azikiwe (2016-02-03)


cc TG
Reports abound of foreign troops’ presence and plans for major Western deployment motivated by the instability, and the threat of terrorism and to take decisive military action to check ISIL’s expansion.

Trade is war: Postscript to WTO MC10

Yash Tandon (2016-02-03)


cc RT
Kenya played host to the MC10, and the Government had to deliver to the Empire what it was obliged to under duress of the imperial system. Unless the South gets together in solidarity with the people of the world in active RESISTANCE against the Empire and the WTO, this war machine will destroy not only the global South but also the global North.

BRICS face brewing external capitalist crisis and growing internal strife

Patrick Bond (2016-02-04)


cc ICC
Behind the current capitalist crisis lies the tendency to over-accumulate and generate gluts. Whereas the BRICS bloc’s elites pretend to be offering an alternative, they in fact are trying very hard to make the world system work for their own corporates. Of course with little success.

Chinese traders in Windhoek

Daouda Cissé (2016-02-03)


cc DC
The number of Chinese businessmen is growing in the Namibian capital, where they supply affordable but low quality goods especially to low-income earners. But not everyone is excited about the presence of the foreigners.

Uganda goes to the polls: Bumpy road ahead

Odomaro Mubangizi (2016-02-03)


cc LP
Ugandans are on edge as the election clock ticks. Yoweri Museveni, in power for 30 years now, is facing what many consider to be his toughest challenge yet. There are fears that he would attempt to rig the election or use force against the opposition to deny them victory. The country is polarized.

Congolese president's onslaught on youth as they rise up for change

Kambale Musavuli (2016-02-03)


cc RP
On Lumumba Day, January 17, 2016, the statue of Patrice Lumumba in Kinshasa was guarded by Congolese security forces blocking anyone who wanted to pay respects to Congo's independence hero. Non-violent youth activists live in constant fear of being jailed or worse as their country slips ever deeper into Orwellian terror.

Kenny Motsamai: Why I don't want to be out without freedom

Sabelo Sibanda (2016-02-03)


cc SABC
A member of the armed wing of South Africa’s Pan Africanist Congress party recently rejected a government offer of conditional release from prison. Kenny Motsamai, condemned to two life sentences and 19 years, insists that he is a political prisoner who was arrested and convicted under apartheid, a system declared by the UN as constituting a crime against humanity. Why can’t the ANC government release him and his fellow Black nationalists?

The shame of South Africa’s Black political prisoners

Motsoko Pheko (2016-02-03)


cc eNCA
More than twenty years after the end of formal apartheid, several African nationalists who resisted the inhuman system are still languishing in prison. Yet many apartheid agents who committed atrocious crimes against the African people were pardoned, some without even expressing any remorse. This is unacceptable. The ANC Government must release all political prisoners now.

No basic rights for the residents

Sabrina Tucci (2016-02-03)


cc EAPPI
Israel has imposed severe restrictions on Palestinians in parts of Hebron City on the presumption that they are a security threat. The ban on all entry to the designated military zones violates international law and has made the life of Palestinians very difficult.
