ACCORDING TO THE BEAC, GABONESE EXTERNAL ASSETS HAVE DROPPED BY 30%. D’APRÈS LA BEAC, LES AVOIRS EXTERNES GABONAIS ONT PÉRICLITÉS DE 30%

English version
What is a central bank? It is a public financial institution that manages the currency of a country or a group of countries and controls the money supply. The central bank is the "bank of banks"
What is the money supply? It is the amount of money circulating in the circumscribed area.
The BEAC countries make deposits. These deposits with the central bank constitute the assets of these countries held by these countries.
The net foreign assets (NEA) of a central bank are the net claims or liabilities of this monetary institution on the outside. It is all the activities of the bank that relate to its operations with the outside. These net foreign assets are the difference between external assets (investments) and external liabilities (potentially debts or risks).
The financial press tells us that Gabon's external assets at the BEAC (the Bank of Central African States), fell by 30% in the first quarter of 2018. That is to say that the commitments of Gabon taken ex…

BALTHAZAR’S FEAST. LE FESTIN DE BALTHAZAR

Image
English version
Balthasar's Feast is a famous Rembrandt painting from 1635, which depicts a scene from the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament. It is the feast that precedes the announcement of the fall of Babylon because of its extravagant decadence, its depraved paganism and its profaning practices.
For this feast, Balthasar, king of the Babylonians, had gold and silver objects placed on the tables. Not satisfied with mocking the temple from which the objects had been removed, he glorified, while the people drank, the "gods of gold and silver, copper, iron, wood, and stone"; further offending the one and only God of Jewish belief.
We are there in Gabon. The similarities are obvious.
We will not give up!

THE DANCE OF HANGED MEN. LE BAL DES PENDUS

Image
English version
Arthur Rimbaud, a French author of the nineteenth century, was a very precautious poet. It is at the age of sixteen that he wrote "Le bal des pendus"; a poem in which he defends the paladins, those knights of the Middle Ages who fought for just causes; and strongly criticizes the state institutions that oppress the people. This blog sees in these Gabonese dancing at Bilié by Nzé’s orders, some poor people hanged in waiting, who, having lost their compass, no longer distinguish the paladin from their executioner who tomorrow, will execute them.
We will not give up!



RIMBAUD: Dance of the Hanged Men (1870)

On the black gallows, one-armed friend, The paladins are dancing, dancing The lean, the devil's paladins The skeletons of Saladins.
Sir Beelzebub pulls by the scruff His little black puppets who grin at the sky, And with a backhander in the head like a kick, Makes them dance, dance, to an old Carol-tune!
And the puppets, shaken about, entwine their thin arms: Their bre…

ALI BONGO’S CROCODILE TEARS REGARDING GABONESE EDUCATION. LES LARMES DE CROCODILE D’ALI BONGO AU SUJET DE L’ÉDUCATION GABONAISE

Image
English version

Ali Bongo has just declared that Gabonese education today is devastated. Well, after 50 years in power here is what the regime he embodies has made of the country.
For 50 years, this regime has been promoting debauchery and laziness. All the strong academics were systematically fought, to make room for yes men who like parrots, repeated to their students what regime wanted them to consider important.
30 or 40 years ago, all young Gabonese wanted to become technocrats or academics; because they were very respected by society. But little by little, Omar Bongo killed this desire for competence by promoting mediocrity and favoritism at all levels. This one was appointed minister in a sensitive field such as finance, industry, petroleum, energy, health or education, etc.; while they had no qualifications apart from being a relative of the Bongo family, or zealously wearing the Bongo shirt.
It became more important to campaign or rather to make noise on one’s attachment to the B…

WHILE ALI BONGO EMPOVERISHES US, THE GABONESE CRICKETS ARE DANCING. PENDANT QU’ALI BONGO NOUS APPAUVRIT, LES CIGALES GABONAISES DANSENT

English version
History will note that on August 31, 2016, Ali Bongo launched his hordes of soldiers armed to the teeth, on the Gabonese people who had just inflicted to him a stinging defeat in the polls of the presidential election. This is historically indisputable.
History will also remember that many young people from Woleu-Ntem fell under Ali Bongo’s bullets that night and in the days and nights that followed. Testimonies from survivors tell us that Ali Bongo's militias asked the victims what ethnicity they were from; and if, unfortunately, you were Fang, you received a particularly violent treatment. This is a documented historical truth. This is historically indisputable.
But two short years later, on August 15, 2016, the same Ali Bongo organizes a public rejoicing to supposedly celebrate the culture of Woleu-Ntem; who answers by tens of thousands to this invitation? The people from this province who yesterday were still being hunted in the streets of the c…

ARETHA FRANKLIN, THE EXPRESSION OF FREEDOM. ARETHA FRANKLIN, L’EXPRESSION DE LA LIBERTÉ

Image
English version

In the news clippings above, you can see two pictures; one taken in 1972 showing Aretha Franklin, who died today at the age of 76 in her home in Detroit, in the company of Jesse Jackson; and the second depicting what Aretha Franklin did to free the activist Angela Davis.
The second picture is from a 1970 article from Jet magazine (p. 54). This article was reporting her intention to bail out of jail the black activist Angela Davis, who was being held in prison in connection with her activism in the black power movement.)
At a time, Angela Davis was being called a “dangerous terrorist” by the US President Richard Nixon. However, that did not prevent Aretha Franklin from risking her reputation to support Angela Davis and free her.
When Aretha Franklin was asked to explain why she decided against her father’s wish to support Angela Davis, she said the following:
“My daddy says I don’t know what I’m doing. Well, I respect him, of course, but I’m going to stick by my beliefs. Ang…

THESE HAGIOGRAPHS OF THE DICTATORSHIP WHO ARE PRETENDING TO FIGHT IT. CES HAGIOGRAPHES DE LA DICTATURE QUI PRÉTENDENT LA COMBATTRE

Image
English version

By definition, a hagiography is an embellished biography about an important person. But in everyday language, it is said that a journalist writes a hagiographic article, when its content praises its subject without any restraint; see for example the articles on order that publishes Jeune Afrique about Ali Bongo and his regime. In this case, the house hagiographer is a person named Dougueli, and the contents are openly paid for. Thus, the amplitude of the bow depends on the amount indicated on the check.
But in Gabon, we are witnessing things that are curious to say the least. We have opposition leaders, in a country under a hermetic dictatorship, who decide to extol the electoral principles under way in this dictatorship, even though the dictatorship has never respected the electoral principles that are being the subject of so much praise.
What chain of insanities do we not hear?
1. “This time they will not be able to rig the election”: the truth is that throughout the his…

FOR THE BONGO, THE GABONESE PEOPLE DESERVE NO CONSIDERATION. POUR LES BONGO, LES GABONAIS SONT INDIGNES DE TOUTE CONSIDÉRATION

Image
English version
One of our readers has just asked us a question: "But who in Gabon agrees to carry a lousy Bongos underling in a tipoye? "
Oh dear reader, we are tempted to reply to this compatriot; as you will be surprised! So much self-slavery is prevalent in our country. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to "save" these people, because any therapy is worthless as long as the patient is not aware of their illness.
There are so many outrageous things that Gabonese people do voluntarily for the Bongos, that the image of compatriots carrying a member of the regime in a Tipoye, should in fact surprise no one.
Imagine for a moment Emmanuel Macron or one of his collaborators, asking Frenchmen to carry him in a tipoye; it's impossible because there would be an outcry. But in Africa, it's commonplace because everyone is happy to accept the status quo.
A very simple example to illustrate these principles of self-slavery is that at the same time that Ali Bongo …

NO SURPRISE THAT THE BONGO’S REGIME SUBMITS THE GABONESE PEOPLE TO THE MOST SHAMEFUL CLICHÉS. RIEN D’ÉTONNANT QUE LE RÉGIME BONGO SOUMETTE LES GABONAIS AUX CLICHÉS DE SOUMISSION LES PLUS TENACES

Image
English version

The tipoye is a people held chair that was used by European settlers in Africa and Asia to be transported by the "natives".
This way of moving used by the Europeans in the colonized world, is known as one of the most stubborn clichés of the exploitation of indigenous peoples. The Bongo regime is customary of the exploitation and humiliation of the Gabonese people, so it is not surprising that its most central members would use this method of transport in contemporary Gabon, to sublimely explain to people that they are superior and dominant to them.
To be transported to tipoye today should be shameful. But among the Bongos, shame and measure, are not known!
So is Gabon!





Version française
Le tipoye est une chaise à porteurs qui était utilisée par les colons Européens en Afrique et en Asie, pour se faire transporter par les « indigènes ».

YET ANOTHER BAD NEWS FOR THE GABONESE OIL SECTOR. ENCORE UNE MAUVAISE NOUVELLE POUR LE SECTEUR PÉTROLIER AU GABON

Image
English version
According to the oil publication “Upstream”, the two deep water oil fields that had been drilled by Australia-based energy company, Woodside Petroleum Limited; have been deemed non-commercially viable.
These deep water oil fields were located between 2300 and 3000 meters off the Gabonese coast. Gabon’s oil ministry had announced that the exploitation of these fields would contribute in the revitalization of the oil sector in the country.

De Conakry à Nairobi, les Africains votent mais ne décident pas
par Anne-Cécile Robert, février 2010

Le 28 février, les Togolais élisent leur président malgré la crainte de fraudes. En effet, si la démocratie s’est répandue sur le continent noir, elle demeure fragile : coup d’Etat en Guinée, multiples reports de la présidentielle en Côte d’Ivoire. L’année 2010, qui marque le cinquantième anniversaire de l’indépendance de seize pays africains, offre l’occasion d’esquisser un bilan de la démocratisation entamée dans les années 1990.

« J’étais sur mes nerfs. J’ai ouvert le feu sur le président, une balle du côté droit de la nuque. Il est tombé. Son chef des opérations est arrivé avec une arme lourde. On a commencé à se bagarrer. Je me suis échappé alors qu’on évacuait le blessé (1). » Le « président », c’est le capitaine Moussa Dadis Camara, qui a pris le pouvoir en Guinée le 23 décembre 2008, à la faveur d’un putsch (2). Le tireur, c’est son aide de camp Toumba Diakité, toujours en fuite d…
