(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #284 - Chronicle "Echo d'Afrique": The arrogance of Vincent Bolloré (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 4 Jul 2018 10:32:06 +0300

Vincent Bolloré found himself in custody on April 24, then indicted for bribery of foreign public officials, complicity of abuse of trust and complicity of false. While he was used to pursuing too critical journalists, or shaping opinion through his media empire, he is pushed to communicate through a tribune in the Journal du dimanche (JDD) of April 29 on his line in order to reassure public opinion (and especially the financial markets). ---- The businessman wonders in these terms " Should Africa be abandoned ? " And believes that suspicions feed on the perception, false according to him, of Africa " land of non-governance ", a vision " miserabilist " of the continent where his group would have invested 4 billion euros and would live some 30,000 families. ---- Unfortunately, readers of the JDD will certainly not be pleased to read or hear the reactions of Africans who know the reality of the predation of the Bolloré group and its consequences. It noted in particular the " response " of Olivier Dossou commentator from the Malian Diaspora in Europe, for whom " the tribune of Vincent Bolloré especially remain a sequence of hypocrisy, condescension and colonial cliches against Africans . "

Dossou points out what the figures put forward by Bolloré do not say: behind the billions of investment, there are above all miraculous profits, releasing more than 80% of the profits of the group. Behind the 30,000 families who " live through him ", there are dangerous wage conditions and poverty wages.

The answer methodically returns all the arguments of Vincent Bolloré in his tribune, while he plays the States to which he asserts himself as a superpower benefiting from the assets of Françafrique (franc CFA, diplomatic relations, francophonie, etc.).

According to Dossou, " Bolloré laughs at Africans " ... which is not surprising since his platform is intended to reassure the financial markets and preserve its image with the French ... neither one nor the other hear the dissonant voices Africans and Africans ! But this contempt is well and truly felt by many of them. " Africans aspire to be actors of their own destiny and not spectators. However, the fierce hold in Africa of transnationals like Bolloré, proceeds from an emasculation of local creative genius totally despised ![...]The arrogance of a Bolloré translates above all the abyssal strategic void of the African leadership with felonious leaders, without major philosophical project, therefore without "utopia", able to raise the economic and social standards of the populations. "

Let's hope that one day, by so much being despised, Africans and Africans unite and stand up to free their leaders, dictators, Bolloré, Total and consort, and take control of their destiny.
