In an article published in the excellent "Gabonreview" and whose title is: "Electoral calendar: Should we go to the legislative elections?"; The editorialist argues about the potential advances that could be obtained by the opposition by participating in it, and also about the potential risks posed by a boycott of these elections.
We want to give our opinion by choosing the format of a friendly dialogue with Gabonreview, an interlocutor who has long earned our respect. Our arguments for a refusal to go to these legislative elections are as follows:
1. An election is not just a mechanical exercise without meaning:
Our Republic is supposed, on paper at least, to operate according to the principle of a representative government of the people, in the sense that the President is elected by direct universal suffrage and the chambers of parliament are populated by direct votes too. In this context, the primary function of…

THE ALI BONGO’S REGIME LOSING THE MEDIA WAR, TAKES A NEW MEASURE AGAINST THE FREE PRESS. LE RÉGIME ALI BONGO PERDANT LA GUERRE MÉDIATIQUE, PREND UNE NOUVELLE MESURE CONTRE LA PRESSE LIBRE

In "Letter to Thiriot," written on 21 October 1736, Voltaire said: "lie, lie, there will always be something left. We must lie as the devil, not timidly, not for a time, but boldly and always ". The Ali Bongo regime still believing to be in the 18th century, wished to use lying for 7 years as a tool of governance. But at all junctures, they met formidable Gabonese citizens who, using the Internet, independent publications like "Echos du Nord", and television channels like TV +, effectively inform the population.
The regime therefore is losing the media war. So what to do? They must therefore censure the free media which escape the draconian control of the regime. Who more than the regime in power in Gabon uses the public media as a propaganda weapon? Can we imagine that the regime will change its outrageous way of using public media? We doubt it.
This measure is nothing but a form of repression of the fr…

WHAT SHOULD WE DO? QUE DEVONS NOUS FAIRE?

Dear readers, we are engaged in a pitiless struggle between us who choose to emancipate ourselves and those who see in us only a small group of individuals who must be placed under the domination of a dictatorial regime whose mission is to maintain us at any cost in an economic organization based on the exploitation and transfer to the West of our mining, forestry and agricultural resources.
Dear readers, the dominant political and social order in Gabon is naturally the work of individuals linked to the big economic operators to whom they grant all monopolies and other advantages against their retaining power. When we have seen and heard the sinusoidal words of Manuel Valls and Jean-Marc Ayrault, concerning the rigged elections in Gabon, we understand that the fight is going to be tough, because the interests are colossal.
But Gabon belongs to us and no one else will come to liberate it in our place. We must therefore prepare ourselves to accept any help, wherever it come…

Un responsable Gabonais exilé se tourne vers les États-Unis pour obtenir de l'aide pour la libération de deux prisonniers américains

INFORMATIONS FOURNIES PAR Le Conseil Gabonais des Droits de l'Homme et de la Bonne Gouvernance 28 Novembre 2016

WASHINGTON, 28 novembre 2016 / PRNewswire / - Deux citoyens américains sont actuellement détenus dans des conditions inhumaines et soumis à la torture au Gabon, selon Séraphin Moundounga, un ancien officiel de cette nation d'Afrique centrale qui a démissionné il y a deux mois .
Moundounga, âgé de 52 ans, a été Vice-Premier Ministre et Ministre de la Justice du Gabon, jusqu'à ce qu'il ait fui le pays à la fin du mois de septembre, après que le président sortant Ali Bongo Ondimba ait refusé de concéder sa défaite lors de l'élection présidentielle du 27 août 2016. Au lieu de cela, dit-il, Bongo Ondimba a ordonné une répression bru…

HOW TO USE THE REPORT OF THE EUROPEEAN UNION! COMMENT SE SERVIR DU RAPPORT DE L’UNION EUROPÉENNE ?

Image
English version
Many readers are still asking us how to use properly the report of the European Union Observation Mission, still awaiting reception by the Gabonese authorities. This blog would like to propose to its readers the example of Burma, where a similar report was decisive.
In 1990, Burma's autocratic and dictatorial regime, under the Ne Win junta, organized the first multi-party democratic elections held in that country. The National League for Democracy (NLD) of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi largely won the election, which was conducted under the supervision of the United Nations and the European Union, among others. But the military junta, which did not expect to be beaten, similarly to Ali Bongo in Gabon, refused to give up power and placed the real winner Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest.
The United Nations and the European Union issued reports demonstrating that Aung San Suu Kyi had won the poll. On the basis of these reports, Burma was immediately place…

Image
English version
The city of Libreville saw hundreds of citizens, exasperated by the political and social situation of the country, give a most enthusiastic reception to Jean Ping, the candidate having been elected by the Gabonese people as President of the Republic on August 27, 2016.
At the same time, around the world, Gabonese people are organizing sit-ins and other demonstrations, protesting against the system we do not want anymore. Nearly all Gabonese strongly emphasize the need to turn the page of dictatorship and authoritarianism; and given the magnitude of the mobilization and the depth of convictions, this movement will continue on the ground for as long as necessary, and will not yield either to the repression within Gabon or to the intimidation and attempts of corruption committed by Gabonese authorities outside the country.
The Gabonese people are standing up against this power, which considers them as subjects and not citizens; and uses the instrumentalization of the justice…

English version
In the face of the indifference of the Gabonese government authorities to the repeated flooding of which they are victims, the populations bordering Akanda has decided to express their anger by blocking purely and simply the public road.
When we see how some people go all out to ask us to dialogue with Ali Bongo, we wonder why they are so mute before the enormous losses suffered by those Gabonese whose homes are constantly flooded. Our dialoguers are not even able to ask that the State show a minimum of consideration for these families.

THE WELCOME TO JEAN PING IN LIBREVILLE RENDERS IMPOSSIBLE ANY DIALOGUE WITH ALI BONGO. L’ACCUEIL FAIT À JEAN PING À LIBREVILLE REND IMPOSSIBLE TOUT DIALOGUE AVEC ALI BONGO

Image
English version
The return of Jean Ping to Gabon this weekend was an opportunity for everyone, and for the regime in particular, to measure the extent to which the Gabonese people were thirsty for freedom and rejected any idea of compromise with the Ali Bongo regime.
Despite the security belt that Ali Bongo had deployed around the Libreville airport, to deter the supporters of Jean Ping; it is a human tide, often dressed in yellow, the color of the of Jean Ping’s campaign, that welcomed him at the airport and accompanied him to his headquarters.
It also appears that this most enthusiastic welcome and the content of the speech given by Jean Ping at his headquarters following this return demonstrate and denote a categorical refusal to deal with Ali Bongo. That is to say: no dialogue and no legislative elections. The case is closed!
Let the dialoguers go alone to dialogue because they believe that it is through this mechanism that they will solve Gabon’s problems. This blog supports the appr…

Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo, yes, the same one who played the leading roles in the last military-electoral holdup in Gabon; is reported to us to be in Lourdes in France; where she would have gone on a pilgrimage of purification.
But it seems that God will probably judge her request "IRRECEVABLE".

OPEN LETTER OF THE GABONESE DIASPORA IN CANADA, TO THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE FRANCOPHONIE. LETTRE OUVERTE DE LA DIASPORA GABONAISE AU CANADA, AU SÉCRÉTAIRE GÉNÉRAL DE LA FRANCOPHONIE

WHAT DOES THE REPORT OF THE EUROPEAN UNION’S OBSERVATION MISSION MEAN? QUE SIGNIFIE LE RAPPORT DE LA MISSION D’OBSERVATION DE L’UNION EUROPÉENNE ?

Image
English version

As a reminder, it is at the invitation of the Gabonese government and the Ali Bongo regime, that the European Union deployed a mission to observe the presidential election of 27 August 2016. Many readers are asking us what would be the use of the report of this mission, which many seem to be expecting. We try to answer them in the most succinct way possible.
First, the administrative procedure would require that, after a mission officially mandated by the European Union, a detailed, impartial and independent report of the observations made by the EU representatives, be drafted and handed over to both the Gabonese and European authorities.
On the Gabonese side, if the Ali Bongo regime is running away, delaying its taking possession of this report, Jean Ping has already announced that he is anxiously waiting for the report to be made public.
In Europe, the French government, by the voices of the Parliamentarian Olivier Faure on the one hand, and the Minister of Foreign Affai…

Shell en négociation pour son désinvestissement au Gabon 25 novembre 2016 Par Reuters News

Royal Dutch Shell est en pourparlers avancés avec une partie intéressée à acheter ses opérations terrestres au Gabon dans le cadre d'un plan de désinvestissement de 30 milliards de dollars (15000 milliards de francs CFA) suivant son achat de BG Group, qui a été achevé en Février.
Shell a informé son personnel de ces discussions ce jeudi, a déclaré un porte-parole de l'entreprise à Reuters, vendredi.
Le groupe pétrolier et gazier, qui prévoit de cesser ses activités dans 5 à 10 pays, a réalisé des progrès relativement lents dans ses désinvestissements, l'incertitude liée aux perspectives pétrolières ayant atténué l'enthousiasme des acheteurs pour le prix de transaction qu'elle vise. Jusqu'ici en cette année, Shell a vendu ou accepté de vendre pour environ 6 milliards de dollars d'actifs.
Les offres pour les champs du Gabon, dont une source a estimé qu’el…
