(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #281 - Africa Unite (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 14 Apr 2018 10:57:08 +0300


The main protagonist of this book, Africa unite ! is above all the story of the miseries suffered by the black people and their hopes for emancipation. This book describes the deportation of millions of human beings from Africa, the study trips of the young Blacks from the West Indies, the United States and Africa to Western Europe, or the movement of ideas circulating around the world. through music, intellectuals like CLR James, the capillary networks of associations and basic churches, great charismatic leaders such as Malcom X and Thomas Sankara. ---- To the right-wing pan-Africanism of the states, armies and dictators, responds a basic current, often syndicalist, concerned with social justice and liberation of the Blacks. It is within this current that the episode, reported by the book, is the meeting in Lisbon between exiled revolutionaries from Angola and Spanish anarcho-syndicalists. What to remember from this passionate and exciting story ? Beyond the innumerable information about the circulation of people and ideas, we learn that the social struggle is a daily work and that we must also think long term. The mistrust of the libertarians towards the states is confirmed by the failures, in terms of social justice and freedom, of the statist policies carried out in Africa. Finally, we rediscover the importance of the role of pop culture in spreading ideas: think of the music of Bob Marley or Miriam Makeba.
