The African continent from post-colonialism to decolonization: An inevitable historical process? Part 2



see also Part1
Bizarrely and contrary to a normal historical process or a state passes from a phase of “decolonization” to that of “post-colonization”, in the case of the African continent, the transition took place in several phases: Colonization, to “neo-colonialism” (false decolonization), to post-colonialism without ever reaching the stage “after colonization”.

The main reason being the neo-colonialism which sought to pacify and stifle conflicts by giving non-disinterested support to the “false decolonization” which presided over the destinies of the new administrative units which it had itself created.

This status quo, represented by the intangibility of the artificial borders resulting from colonialism, is in contradiction with international law and the charters of the United Nations supplemented, inter alia, by the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples. 1514 (XV) of 14 December 1960.


What about the Kabyle question?

More than half a century after the independence of African countries, conflicts linked to artificial and ethnocultural borders have not ceased, despite the principle of intangibility and immutability.

Since the fall of the communist bloc and the disappearance of the organization of non-Alignment and the organization of the 77 … that it is necessary, or even vital, to complete the historical process of decolonization towards sovereign, independent states which will enable them to exercise their powers over geographically, politically and culturally homogeneous territories.

The exit ticket snatched by Eritrea in 1993 through a referendum that enshrines its independence from Ethiopia broke the principle of the intangibility of 1964 and allows other peoples without states to overcome a politico-juridic rended obsolete by the reality of the 21st century.

Kabylia can rely on international law to regain its sovereignty over its territory arbitrarily annexed by colonial France to its heterogeneous administrative creation “Algeria”.

The geopolitics resulting from the new data of colonialism has created states with antagonisms generating conflicts that can not be solved by simple measures of decentralization of power.

Algeria has always acted with Kabylie as a post-colonial force, as evidenced by the events of 1963 and 2001.

The Kabyle people became conscious of their colonized status and they clamored it without detour and without false pretenses. Henceforth, they also know that it is necessary to have a sovereign Kabyle State, the only guarantor of the perenniality of their language, their culture and all their material heritage and their bodiless heritage.

  • « France deprives Africa of its wealth »: Salvini attacks France
    In Italy, the press already evokes a « diplomatic crisis » after the remarks made Sunday by the Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio concerning « the exploitation of Africa by France ». On the morning of Tuesday, January 22, during the TV show « Mattino 5 », the Italian Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini relaunched:

    « The problem of migrants has many causes: for example, those who do not go to Africa to create development, but rather to remove wealth from the African people, France is among them, Italy, no. »

    The case was born last Sunday when Luigi Di Maio accused France of impoverishing Africa and, consequently, aggravating the migration crisis.

    « From today, those who want to land in Italy, we will take them to Marseille.I will ask for sanctions against the countries that colonize Africa.France prints the Franc in the colonies to finance part of his debt: to leave Africans in Africa, it would be enough for the French to stay at home, « he had dropped on RTL 102.5.

    In France, the reaction was immediate with the invitation by the Quai d’Orsay of the Italian ambassador Teresa Castaldo. The European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, Pierre Moscovici, has meanwhile defined the words of Luigi Di Maio « insane », adding that their content is « irresponsible ».

    « France contributes to the departure of migrants »
    And Luigi Di Maio insist Monday night: « All that I said is true.France prints a currency for 14 African states and, therefore, it prevents the development.On the contrary, it contributes to the departure of migrants, who will then die in the Mediterranean or land on our shores.It is time that Europe has the courage to address the theme of the decolonization of Africa.

    The question is currently fueling a heated debate in Italy. The press is for the moment divided between support for the two populist leaders and those who argue that, contrary to what Luigi Di Maio said, the African Franc (CFA) is not entirely responsible for the crisis in some African countries
