African Diaspora: Media fabrications impede economic recovery efforts

ONE can make out a pattern when it comes to the popularity of the Zimbabwe Government in the West before the Land Reform Programme and after its inception.

The reason for this is not because the Government did something out of this world, the Government – all things considered – did a good thing for its people. Read the rest of this entry »

Cholera Outbreak Outcome of West’s War on Zimbabwe

What’s Left

8th December, 2008

The crisis in Zimbabwe has intensified. Inflation is incalculably high. The central bank limits – to an inadequate level- the amount of money Zimbabweans can withdraw from their bank accounts daily. Unarmed soldiers riot, their guns kept under lock and key, to prevent an armed uprising. Hospital staff fail to show up for work. The water authority is short of chemicals to purify drinking water. Cholera, easily prevented and cured under normal circumstances, has broken out, leading the government to declare a humanitarian emergency.

I have said it before and I will say it again without any apologies. Even then, there are still some who are awestruck at the continued attempts by the West (read Britain and America) to make Zimbabwe Africa’s protracted battleground for their imperialistic and hegemonic interests.

Zimbabwe election: South Africa not attending crisis summit

Posted by seumasach on June 25, 2008

Is Mugabe the new Bin-Laden, the ultimate incarnation of evil, the anti-Christ himself.?Given the intensity of the media campaign against him you could be forgiven for thinking so. Not a word about the West’s economic war against Zimbabwe; not a word about how the Brits reneged on the Lancaster House agreement; not a word about how the West manipulates and funds the opposition and those bodies such as NGOs which it styles as “civil society”. And all this from people who think they can just waltz into African countries and take what they want. Obviously they think Africa is a soft touch, at least compared to the Middle East where the waltz is proving more of a dance of death for London and Washington’s vain pretensions to world domination.

And perhaps this is the key to what is happening: after Iraq and Lebanon they need a war they can win and what would be a “damned little sideshow” in the Great War on Terror comes to dominate our lives daily hate sessions at 6 and 10 pm. Meantime Bin-Laden’s alleged comrades enjoy mere house arrest. As in Orwell’s 1984 things are getting messy and we need daily briefings as to who the enemie du jour precisely is.

But with the changing of the guard in London and Washington and Sarkozy, Europe’s leading neo-con madman, preaching to the Israelis about sharing Jerusalem with the Palestinians, it does seem that the war in terror is beginning to wind down to be replaced by a return to the doctrine of the City on the Hill whereby our influence follows from our sheer moral righteousness plus our global networks of subversion( the Soros, Brzezinski school). In other words, pure fantasy. Whether it can go as far as an actual invasion of Zimbabwe,by reviving the notion of the Heart of Darkness, they are constructing, at the very least, a diversion from the mess they are in in Iraq where the military leadership has already attempted, on its own initiative, to extricate itself.

Whatever the motivation behing this campaign may be, now is the moment to defend the sovereignty of Zimbabwe and counter the endless stream of lies. We particularly recommend Stephen Gowan’s blog What’s Left for in-depth analysis of the imperialist campaign against Mugabe.

Attempts to mount regional pressure on Mugabe to call off Friday’s presidential election were hampered today when it emerged the South African president, Thabo Mbeki, would not be attending an emergency meeting of African leaders.
