TWO VISIONS OF GABON BATTLE IN PARIS; AND THAT'S A GOOD THING! DEUX VISIONS DU GABON S’AFFRONTENT À PARIS ; ET C’EST UNE BONNE CHOSE !

    English version   This Saturday, May 25, 2024, in Paris, a face-off will take place between two visions of Gabon which would be explained to the diaspora: the vision of Gabon that is carried by those who have just come out of the Inclusive National Dialogue that recently took place in Gabon; and that embodied by citizens who are resolutely Republican and who see Brice-Clotaire Oligui-Nguema's path towards an authoritarian and undemocratic regime, as a threat.

Apparently only the so-called native Gabonese should have all the rights in Gabon. The others would be nothing but adulterated Gabonese, pale copies of the originals. Dear compatriots, it is shameful to have such uneducated positions.   Some people in Gabon are organizing a campaign around a rhetoric of unvarnished nativism and xenophobia. They are saying openly that people who have foreign blood are a threat to the nation’s security, wellbeing, and future. They think that all people who have foreign blood are exactly like Sylvia Bongo.   Some pe
