„Der Distriktverwalter entfernte sich mit drei oder vier seiner Soldaten. In den vielen jahren, in denen er sich redlich bemüht hatte, in einigen Teilen Afrikas die Segnungen der Zivilisation zu verbreiten, hatte er eine Reihe von Dingen gelernt. Eines dieser Dinge war, dass ein Distriktverwalter niemals einer so entwürdigende Ttigkeit beiwohnen durfte wie das Abschneiden eines erhängten Mannes von einem Baum. Das würde bei den Eingeborenen einen schlechten Eindruck hinterlassen. In dem Buch, dass er schreiben wollte, würde er diesen Punkt ganz besonders betonen. Jeder Tag brachte ihm neues Material. Die Geschichte von diesem Mann, der einen Gerichtsdiener getötet und sich dann selbst erhängt hatte, war spannend und lehrreich zugleich. Man könnte fast ein ganzes Kapitel über ihn schreiben. Oder vielleicht doch nicht ein ganzes, aber zumindest einen recht langen Abschnitt. Es gab noch so viel mehr zu berichten, und man konnte sich nicht in Einzelheiten verlieren. Er hatte, nach längerem Nachdenken, bereits den Titel seines Buches gewählt: Beiträge zur Befriedung der Eingeborenenstämme im Gebiet des Unteren Niger.“

Radical Women (RW) und Freedom Socialist Party (FSP) zur Ölkatastrophe im Golf von Mexiko

Posted by entdinglichung - 24. Juni 2010

Quelle: Webseite der FSP, als zum Ausdrucken und Verteilen als Flugblatt hier (pdf) … ansonsten noch der Hinweis auf einen Artikel von Simon Butler auf ESSF Nigeria: A gulf spill every year

The only solution is revolution

The Gulf crisis: beautiful planet versus deadly profit system

“It’s like a nightmare you can’t wake up from.” This is how Danielle Brutsche described the plight of Gulf of Mexico residents at a May 30 rally in New Orleans demanding that the government take control of managing BP’s disaster.

The horror grows day by day as the cover-up by BP and its government co-conspirators is peeled away. It started with the deaths of the 11 workers who were victims of the April 20 explosion and now threatens whole cultures, both ecological and human – the unique ways of life of fishers, shrimpers, and the Gulf’s other inhabitants.

There are actions that can and must be taken to help those cultures survive. But can the area and its people truly be “made whole”? And when and where will the next profit-driven catastrophe strike? And how could anyone reasonably expect that the government, whether run by Democrats or Republicans, will someday stop being at the beck and call of the corporations?

The crisis in the Gulf is an argument with terrible force for a fundamental change in how people produce and distribute what we need and how we interact with nature in the process. It is an urgent argument for socialist feminist revolution.

A corporate atmosphere of heedlessness and death

The march of oil and chemical companies into the Gulf has been wreaking havoc for decades.

In the infamous “cancer alley” near the mouth of the Mississippi, at least five towns founded by African Americans before or after the Civil War have been turned into ghost towns. Chemical facilities overran the areas, poisoned them, and then paid the suffering residents to relocate.

Meanwhile, oil companies were destroying the wetlands, creating about 10,000 miles of navigation canals that eradicated forests, marshes, and neighborhoods. Invading saltwater kills vegetation, displaces wildlife, and increases erosion. It is contributing heavily to the loss of one football field’s worth of land in Louisiana every 45 minutes.

Today, the angry spotlight is on BP. But BP’s abhorrent practices are just business as usual for the corporations that carelessly control the fate of everyone from Honda workers in China and miners in Virginia and Colombia to Vietnamese American fishers and French-speaking Native Americans on the Gulf Coast.

The cost to women and children is especially harsh. Around the world, women are extra-exploited as workers while also bearing the burdens of finding clean water for their families, caring for the injured and disabled, and holding things together in conditions of poverty and crisis. In the Gulf, the health risks of the oil and the chemicals BP is using to fight its spread are magnified for pregnant women and their fetuses and for babies and young children.

Commentators on the Gulf crisis have pointed out that male-dominated corporations today have reached a point of extreme aggression and risk-taking. At BP, after current CEO Tony Hayward took over, many of the company’s female executives took off, apparently repelled by a heightened emphasis on profit-making at any cost.

Especially in a time when the whole capitalist system is under extreme stress, like today, it breeds a corporate culture of smash, grab, take the money and run. The answer does not lie in shifting the gender and colors of the obscenely paid people in charge or letting huge corporations persuade us they are serious about “going green.” The answer is for working people to take charge, restore a balance with nature, and make sure that every last person is safe, secure, and happily productive.

Let’s start now to make the change the planet needs

To move toward this goal will take the building of a mass movement for socialism. In the meanwhile, the residents of the Gulf and the ecosystem there cannot be abandoned. Below are ideas of what we should be fighting for (find more at http://www.murderedgulf.wordpress.com):

  • Seize BP and its assets immediately! Nationalize the entire energy industry under the control of its workers.
  • Halt the use of dangerous chemical dispersants to fight the spread of oil. Use the highest safety standards and maximum protection for workers involved in the cleanup. Seek community input and call on scientists with no ties to the energy industry to advise on methods of cleanup and restoration. Ensure healthcare for all of the affected Gulf residents.
  • Hold the heads of BP criminally responsible for the deaths in the explosion and the damage to the Gulf and its people.
  • Stop all offshore drilling immediately, including current projects, and ban deepwater drilling permanently.
  • Take urgent measures to move to energy sources other than oil. Create jobs through ample funding for expanding and running mass transit systems nationwide.
  • Establish an agency in the Gulf that can launch a massive program of public jobs at union-scale wages, oversee the cleanup, rebuild the area’s ecology, and distribute financial relief to fishers and other workers and small businesses. Give authority over this agency to assemblies of affected workers and communities, including local tribes, that are independent of government and big business.
  • End war and its terrible consumption of oil in pursuit of oil. Redirect Pentagon funds to jobs and the environment.

Jährliche Übersicht des IGB über die Verletzungen von Gewerkschaftsrechten 2010

Posted by entdinglichung - 9. Juni 2010

Die aktuelle, vom (sozialpartnerschaftlich dominierten) IGB produzierte Übersicht kann hier eingesehen werden. Laut IGB wurden 2009 mindestens 101 GewerkschafterInnen ermordet (im Vorjahr mindestens 76), davon 48 in Kolumbien, 16 in Guatemala, 12 in Honduras, 6 in Mexiko, 6 in Bangladesch, 4 in Brasilien, 3 in der Dominikanischen Republik, 3 in den Philippinen, 1 in Indien, 1 im Irak und 1 in Nigeria, von Inhaftierungen von GewerkschafterInnen wird u.a. aus Iran, in Honduras, Pakistan, Südkorea, der Türkei und Simbabwe berichtet. Zur Lage in der BRD wird folgendes angemerkt:

„Trotz solider Arbeitsbeziehungen sind einige Arbeitgeber nach wie vor gewerkschaftsfeindlich eingestellt. Es kommt zur Diskriminierung von Gewerkschaftsmitgliedern, und zum Teil wird mit gelben, mitgliederschwachen und wenig repräsentativen Gewerkschaften verhandelt. Hauptgrund zur Besorgnis ist allerdings weiterhin die Tatsache, dass Beamte generell kein Streikrecht haben.“

Zwei Texte zu den Massakern in Jos/Nigeria am 6./7. März 2010

Posted by entdinglichung - 7. April 2010

* Ola Kazeem: Nigeria: Jos Killings – A temporary episode or a symptom of a “failing state”? (In Defence of Marxism), hieraus nachfolgend ein Auszug:

* Segun Sango: JOS CARNAGE: Frequent Ethno-religious Killings Will Only End When a Truly Working Peoples‘
Government Comes To Power o Reconstruct Nigeria’s Warped Polity and Unjust Economy
(Democratic Socialist Movement)

„Jos grew rapidly after the British discovered vast tin deposits in the vicinity. Both tin and columbite were extensively mined in the area up until the 1960s. By 1943, tin mining on the Jos Plateau was at its peak. There were 80,000 African, mainly immigrants, working in the mines. Up to 1960, Jos was the sixth largest producer of tin in the world. This was transported by railway to both Port Harcourt and Lagos on the coast, then exported from those ports. Jos is in fact still often referred to as „Tin City“. Tin mining has led to the influx of migrants, mostly Hausas, Igbos, Yorubas, and also some Europeans, who constitute more than half of the population of Jos. This „melting pot“ of race, ethnicity and religion makes Jos one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Nigeria. That is why Plateau State is became known in Nigeria as the „home of peace and tourism“.

The wealth made from tin extraction was never re-invested locally. A few Nigerians became rich as a result of this business; the biggest share of this easy money went to the Royal Niger Company which monopolized this industry. [The Royal Niger Company was a mercantile company chartered by the British government in the nineteenth century, which was used as the basis for colonising Nigeria in a similar manner to how the British East India Company was used in India]. The income was siphoned off to western nations, mainly Britain. The local bourgeois were also lavishly spending the proceeds without any concern for future community development.

By the 1970s, the industry was already slowing down. The Nigerian economy was starting to be dominated by oil towards the mid-1970s and other export goods like coal, tin, palm oil, etc., were almost completely neglected. This decline continued until what used to be a prosperous Jos became just an administrative centre of Plateau State. Many jobs were destroyed and civil service jobs became the most secured and most sought-after jobs in Jos. Many who could not get government jobs in the ministries went to remote villages to start farming.

Thus, enlightened Jos indigenes became rural dwellers. Consequently, tension started mounting among the various ethnic groups who previously had peacefully lived side by side. The different ethnic groups started competing for the limited available vacancies in the ministries. As could be expected, the indigenes went down memory lane only to discover that the Yorubas came from Ogbomosho and that Igbos are Easterners. As tension ceaselessly mounted in the towns, a lot more tension was brewing in the villages over the question of land. This impending catastrophe was immediately channelled to the political advantage of the ruling elites of Jos. They played one tribe off against the other to maintain their political influence. Religious leaders equally exploit the situation to their own advantages.

This mounting tension reached its peak in September 2001 when over 1000 people were killed, this was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Just like magic, effect became cause and cause became effect. What was primary transformed into the secondary and secondary became primary. Instead of arresting the religious leaders who had fomented the conflict, they were appeased to help “solve” the problem; and the ruling local elites were approached to help manage their thugs and this further strengthened their political hold.“

Studie zur Einflussnahme der US-amerikanischen religiösen Rechten in Afrika: „Globalizing the Culture Wars: U.S. Conservatives, African Churches, and Homophobia“

Posted by entdinglichung - 20. November 2009

Globalizing the Culture Wars: U.S. Conservatives, African Churches, and Homophobia (als pdf-Datei hier), eine neue lesenswerte Studie von Kapya Kaoma, herausgegeben vom Political Research Associates (PRA) zur homophoben Einflussnahme der Religious Right in Afrika, v.a. in Uganda, Nigeria und Kenia:

„As Kaoma argues, the U.S. Right – once isolated in Africa for supporting pro-apartheid, White supremacist regimes – has successfully reinvented itself as the mainstream of U.S. evangelicalism. Through their extensive communications networks in Africa, social welfare projects, Bible schools, and educational materials, U.S. religious conservatives warn of the dangers of homosexuals and present themselves as the true representatives of U.S. evangelicalism, so helping to marginalize Africans’ relationships with mainline Protestant churches.“

Hexenjagd 2009

Posted by entdinglichung - 10. August 2009

Angehörige der Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries, einer fundamentalistischen Pfingstkirche, welche im Südwesten Nigerias derzeit blutige Hexenjagden veranstaltet, haben Ende Juli in Calabar eine Konferenz der Kinderhilfsorganisation Stepping Stones Nigeria und des Nigerian Humanist Movement, welche sich gegen die Machenschaften dieser und anderer fundamentalistischer Gruppen richtet, überfallen. Die in einigen Staaten Afrikas (so auch in Kenia) derzeit grassierenden Hexenjagden sind dabei kein genuin afrikanisches Phänomen sondern aus einer Verbindung von traditionellen Vorstellungen von Magie und Schadenszauber mit einer aus den USA und Europa durch evangelikale und pfingstlerische Missionare eingeführten Theologie, welche „Hexerei“ als Ausgeburt des Teufels und somit als Manifestation des absolut Bösen ansieht und bekämpft (so warnt die Partei Bibeltreuer Christen daher vor Harry Potter-Romanen, Sarah Palin liess sich in den vergangenen Wahlkampagnen vor Hexerei „beschützen“), hervorgegangenes Krisenphänomen. Nachfolgend dokumentiert ein Auszug aus einem Statement der British Humanist Association:

„Leo Igwe, a friend of the British Humanist Association and Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Humanist Movement, was attacked yesterday during a raid by 150 to 200 members of a Christian church at a conference he had organised on „Child Rights and Witchcraft“ in Calabar.

Helen Ukpabio and her church, the Liberty Foundation Gospel Ministries, have run a campaign of terror against children and those committed to fighting for their rights, of which yesterday’s raid was only the latest development. The conference had been organised by the Nigerian Humanist Movement and the UK charity Stepping Stones Nigeria in response to the widespread abandonment, torture and killing of children in Akwa Ibom and Cross River State due to the belief in child „witches“.

As the anti-witchcraft conference began at around 10.30am, the religious protesters dressed in orange raided the venue and began protesting loudly. The extremists were carrying a number of banners with slogans such as, „This protest is organised by The Akwa Ibom State Government“, „We give freedom to the witches“ and „Stepping Stone is not a registered organisation“.

Among the other delegates attacked, Leo Igwe had his glasses smashed and his bag, phone and camera stolen by the mob, who were alternately singing and aggressively disrupting the conference. After an hour and a half, the police turned up and dispersed the mob. One person was arrested.

Speaking after the event Leo said: „The conference was a peaceful meeting for people to openly debate what could be done to prevent the abuse of child rights linked to the belief in witchcraft. This attack by Helen Ukpabio’s supporters once again highlights the depravity of this so-called „woman of God“. Such false prophets should be immediately arrested and prosecuted under the child rights act“.

Despite the raid the conference, which was well attended by representatives of the Cross River State Government, UNICEF, NAPTIP and a wide range of traditional rulers, students and NGOs, still went ahead successfully.

The issue of child witchcraft has attracted a great deal of media attention since the broadcast of the documentary, Saving Africa’s Witch Children. The documentary, which won the prestigious BAFTA and Amnesty Film awards highlights the role that Helen Ukpabio has played in spreading the belief in child „witches“ in South-Eastern Nigeria. Teachings such as the one offered by Helen Ukpabio in her book, Unveiling the Mysteries of Witchcraft, which states that, „a child under two years of age that cries at night and deteriorates in health is an agent of Satan“, have caused wide spread international outrage and condemnation of her practices.“
