Neocolonialism in West Africa
download
Chernoh Bah examines modern forms of capitalist colonialism in West Africa from the perspective of an African revolutionary leader and political activist and shows how capitalist corporations and Western nations control the economy and resources of West Africa, rig elections, and promote wars and military coups. He also explores how North American and European capitalist corporations prop up anti-democratic regimes that support Western economic interests in West Africa and how outsiders continue to scramble to control the continent’s natural resources.

Until The Rulers Obey, Presentation and Discussion May 22

Thursday, May 22, 7:00pm

Social movements across Latin America powered a huge wave of change at the turn of the 21st century. The new book, ”Until the Rulers Obey: Voices From Latin American Social Movements” brings together more than 70 interviews from long-silent or silenced groups: indigenous peoples, the rural and urban poor, youth, workers, women, and LGBT communities; leaders, organizers, and activists from 15 countries. Please join co-editors Clifton Ross and Marcy Rein in dialogue about what these movements represent and what we can learn from them.

“This is the book we’ve been waiting for,” Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein say of Until the Rulers Obey. “Anyone interested in the explosion of social movements in Latin America—and the complex interplay between those forces and the “Pink Tide” governments—should inhale this book immediately,” say the noted filmmaker (The Take) and author (The Shock Doctrine).
