(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - international, Gabon: France calls for calm after 50 years of support to the Bongo regime (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 8 Sep 2016 10:26:41 +0300

After an interminable false suspense, the verdict is: Ali Bongo wins at the polls. The people expressed their anger, the regime cracked down, up to encircle the premises of the rival candidate by the armed forces. The Survival Association decrypts the situation. ---- The vote in the presidential election in Gabon was held this Saturday, August 27th. While Ali Bongo seems to have lost the election, according to results produced by the opposition to the exit polls, it decided, as in 2009, to impose by force. ---- Since Wednesday evening, various events were violently suppressed by the military and police forces. If the number of death can not be determined at this time because of travel restrictions coupled to the Internet outage, it turned out that Ali Bongo is not limited to tear gas but did well to shoot his balls population real as well as heavy weapons and via helicopters.

The French government today called for an end to violence, and the publication of results by office desk, taking a supportive stance on democracy. Survival recall that France has yet that support, for 50 years and until today, the Bongo clan system. Already in 2009, Ali Bongo could never succeed in passing power without the zealous intervention by various French[1].

France continued to support the regime, granting it numerous diplomatic recognition marks (receptions at the Elysee, the French ministers of travel). This support lies mainly via the military and security cooperation with the army and the Gabonese police, the very ones who currently Gabonese kill civilians. In 2014, the French Government boasted of having trained 4000 Loan Gabonese military, which include use of French equipment.
