"Côte d’Ivoire civilians are at immediate risk of massive human rights violations Amnesty International warned today, as forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara reach the country’s commercial capital Abidjan."
"Abidjan is on the brink of a human right catastrophe and total chaos" said Salvatore Saguès, Amnesty International’s researcher on West Africa."
Hi Andy. I am glad things are good for you and Bah. Good luck on the book. I will definitely want to read it when you are finished with it. I have thought about writing a short book with a lot of photos. I hope with the aid of my daughter and Lu LU publishing to someday make it a reality.
I clicked on the passport agency link. Boy these guys do not fool around. That website is really strack. Easy to use and right to the point. I like it.
I am just waiting to finish up some paperwork here and do a little getting rid of stuff I do not want to pay to store. Then I plan to go to a place that is a lot less stressful. I need a place where I can walk and exercise and lose about 15 pounds. And emotionally just relax and think of absolutely nothing except relaxing. How far is Mampong from the international airport?
So when, hopefully very soon, my mode shifts to priority one, tacamo "take charge and move out", and I will once again travel. If my destination is east this time I will let you know.
take care and be safe
Sorry no oil, no help. That is the way it works in Africa. Yes, chocolate prices are going to go up, but there are other places in which the US can grow coco beans. It's harsh, but you should know that is the way the world rolls. Not saying it is right, but it is the way it goes.
I agree with your sentiment about putting U.S. troops in to stop the genocide it is rarely that simple. Armies are good for destroying things, not so good in protecting one group from another.
Christians in Islamic counties have co-existed for centuries. In Iraq they are mostly gone. Many other countries are the same. People who want to prove they follow the Quaran are purging their countries of "Infidels" unfortunately often by killing them.The U.S., the U.N. and the world are very slow to acknowledge this and even slower to try to stop it.
The U.N. peace keepers (French troops) can follow the law and support the "elected" leader. Whoops we didn't "see" the atrocities.
I will be praying for the Christians trapped in the Ivory Coast. This is so sad!!! What did they do wrong? Nothing, they just lived peaceful lives and now they will die for standing up for what is right and what is true. I pray for mighty strength and peace in this horrible time and if it can be, I pray they are able to get away from these death forces and find freedom!!!
