    Program Title: The Ravaging of Africa
    Description: A four-part radio documentary series about the destructive impact of U.S. imperialism on Africa, featuring voices of African activists interviewed at the 2007 World Social Forum held in Nairobi, Kenya.

    Host(s):
    Featured Speakers/Guests: More info below

    Credits: Written by Asad Ismi, produced by Kristin Schwartz


    The Ravaging of Africa has been enriching Europe and North America for more than 500 years. First, European empires imposed slavery and colonialism on the continent. After 1945, the United States took over as the dominant neo-colonial power.

    Through the Pentagon and the CIA, the U.S. government has fueled 14 wars in Africa. The methods employed include direct and proxy nvasions as well as arms transfers and military training. The U.S. has used the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund to systematically demolish African economies and health and education sectors. This military and economic war enables the looting of Africa's resources by Western multinational corporations. Washington's genocidal imperial strategy has killed more than 26 million Africans but failed to suppress popular resistance.

    Twenty-eight activists from 16 African countries were interviewed for the series. The documentary is based on Asad's award-winning article of the same title. For his publications visit: Asad Ismi

    No. It's something I came across while looking at something else on the Black Agenda Report website.

    Thank you dear.

    I came across this radio broadcast which I found to be quite compelling and wanted to share it in the hopes that people will listen to the program, download the files and pass the information on.

    You may have missed it but a few months ago I posted an article entitled "Trayvon Martin and the Myth of the Criminal Black Man" which I also found compelling.

    I'll be posting similar "eye openers" here from time to time as I come across them.


    Peace & Love
