Dame MEYE Valentine : le problème qui nous réunit là, ce n’est pas un nouveau problème, c’est un vieux problème.
Le problème a commencé en 2014, le 25 avril 2014, c’est là où le Commandant MOUKAGHA et le maître NGOUA Christian sont venus nous faire déguerpir de notre site. Le jour-là, nous n’avons rien récupéré. Ils étaient venus avec un camion de policiers. Ils nous ont dispersés avec des bombes lacrymogènes et nous avons pris fuite. Ils ont tout ramassé et ils ont tout brûlé.
Je me suis rapprochée du maire. Je lui ai dit que la place que nous occupons aujourd’hui, c’est le maire qui nous a mis ici. C’est l’ancien maire MBA ABESSOLE lorsque le marché avait brûlé en 2000. C’est lui qui nous amenées ici. Il a encore rajouté des hangars et donc d’autres commerçants. La Gare routière…

THEY CAN RUN; BUT YOU, YOU CAN’T MARCH! ILS PEUVENT COURIR ; MAIS VOUS, VOUS NE POUVEZ MARCHER !

You/vous


English version
Two rallies commemorating the fight against violence against women, and the assassination of the martyr Bruno Mboulou Beka, organized by various groups of the Gabonese civil society, were just banned by the Bongo’s regime. At the same time, Sylvia Bongo and her friends urged the Gabonese to go run, for their glory, in the marathon of Gabon.
To demonstrate is a constitutional right, which means that to ban it is a serious violation of fundamental civil rights. In Gabon, there are more banned marches than authorized ones. All the marches proposed by the opposition, or by the civil society that is beyond the control of the regime, are routinely banned. Only those of the regime may be held without problem.
In Gabon, the most basic freedoms recognized to citizens are crushed: freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, freedom of demonstration, etc. But the truth is that banning an event is essentially an admission of failure on the part o…

PRESS RELEASE BY « ÇA SUFFIT COMME ÇA ». COMMUNIQUÉ DE PRESSE DE « ÇA SUFFIT COMME ÇA »

English version
Dear All,
We have further proof, if any was needed, that Ali Bongo and his emergent henchmen have decided to take our country hostage. Time is no longer to making speeches. I publish here the correspondence that the Minister of the Interior has just sent to the campaign team "JUSTICE FOR MBOULOU BEKA" via the Secretary General of that ministry Lambert Noel Matha.
They have so much bad faith and are panicking that contradictions can be read in their correspondence.
In the same document, Mr. Lambert Noel Matha, acknowledges that we did ask for permission to go pay tribute on the site where Mboulou Beka was assassinated on 20 December last year, and he wrote that we should not have inform him but ask for permission.
Are we still in a republic or in a club of friends who can treat citizens as subhumans that we are for them.
Lambert Noel Matha for 20 years has been Secretary General of the ministry which he holds undoubtedly the land title. An absolute electoral fraud …

OUR RESPONSE TO A READER: "YES WE CAN JUDGE ROSSATANGA SEVERELY". NOTRE RÉPONSE À UN LECTEUR : « OUI, NOUS POUVONS JUGER SÉVÈREMENT ROSSATANGA »

English version

Dear readers, this post aims to answer one of our readers describing himself as being of the Gabonese intelligentsia, who in a letter, is against our characterization of Guy Rossatanga-Rignault. We come here to respond publicly to this reader, so that our position is clearly understood by all.



Sir,

Thank you for the attention you give us by writing to express your feelings about the content of our article about the latest book by Guy Rossatanga-Rignault.

You say that we are not literary critics and lack the understanding and technical expertise to judge such work. Let us laugh, dear sir, for the work of Rossatanga-Rignault is not a work of literature but a selection of supposedly key dates in the history of Gabon; and when your friend can twist these dates, we must point this out. It is not Rossatanga’s prose that interests us, but his quackery because he puts on a historian suit allowing him, in a span of one book, to skew the history of Gabon in the dir…

HALT NO ONE MARCHES! HALTE ON NE MARCHE PAS!

Image

English version
The march was one of dignity, initiated by a group of movements of civil society, inviting all people of goodwill to join them in denouncing violence against women in general, but also to denounce extortion and even murder committed by the police in complete impunity. Dear readers, even this minimum was denied to them by Ali Bongo!
The official reason given by the regime to justify blocking the march which was nothing but peaceful: none! But it does not matter; the regime no longer needs to give justification? They simply decided that Gabonese who do not necessarily pay allegiance to them, did not have the right to march, for any reason whatsoever, period!
The message Dear Gabonese: "we'll crush you, if you are not happy, you can go complain wherever you want!"
For police violence, therefore of the regime, the process is the same: State’s lies, criminaliz…

BETWEEN THE PRESS AT THE REGIME’S SERVICE AND REALITY, THERE IS ALWAYS LIKE A GAP OF LIES! ENTRE LA PRESSE AU SERVICE DU RÉGIME ET LA RÉALITÉ, IL Y A TOUJOURS COMME UN FOSSÉ MENSONGER!

Image
English version
Between an article in Le Gabon Nouveau, which is published by the Ecofin Agency at Ali Bongo’ service, claiming the payment of 10 billion CFA francs of debt by the State to the Gabonese small businesses, to absorb a part of the domestic debt; and an article that appeared simultaneously in the excellent Gabonreview, announcing a lawsuit against the State of Gabon in France by Gabonese entrepreneurs, for non-payment of debts totaling 32 billion CFA francs; the truth is somewhere in there; dear readers; it is not on the side of Ecofin, do not worry about that! The Gabonreview’s article is explicit about the lawsuit by Gabonese small busineeses in France. The article by Ecofin is vague and without any verifiable element.
An article published by info241.com, tells us that the amount released by the State was distributed in totality to big companies, most of them foreign and not small businesses as shamefully highlighted by Le Gabon Nouveau of Ecofin.
Misinformation will never…

ISN’T THE PRINCE CHARITABLE ? N’EST-IL PAS CHARITABLE, LE PRINCE ?

English version
Ali Bongo and his team of actors have just allegedly transferred the presidential residence of the Camp de Gaulle to the Ministry of Higher Education, which should turn it into a university. How soon? God only knows! But when evaluating the progress of the universities of Port-Gentil, Oyem and Mouila, we will have to be patient!
Dear readers, this umpteenth stunt by the regime leaves us unimpressed, for it is nothing less than a campaign to throw a bone to those who would look to closely into the ill-gotten gains, by pretending to play philanthropists in favor of a Gabonese people being robbed and taken a hundredfold every day that God makes. Who do they think they are kidding?
The clowns who came to represent the prince in this charade were equipped with a life-size poster with bold characters that were supposed to show us the grea…

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE FRONT. COMMUNIQUÉ DU FRONT

Image
Pierre André Kombila Koumba (photo: A. M.)


English version
The Conference of Presidents, statutory meeting of the Front of the Opposition for Change, scheduled on Friday 20 November 2015 could not take place, for lack of quorum, a new meeting with the same agenda shall be convened and communicated to the members of the Front in the next few days.
While remaining sensitive to the scheduling requirements and unforeseen timing of everyone, the president of the Front of the Opposition for Change puts the highest importance to the respect of the common timetable and the unity of the Front.
He also reminds all that the decisions affecting the Front can only be derived from scheduled meetings, organized and held by the consensus rules that the Front itself has established, particularly in the presence of the majority of its members.

GUY ROSSATANGA-RIGNAULT: LESS AND LESS HONEST, MORE AND MORE CHARLATAN! GUY ROSSATANGA-RIGNAULT : DE MOINS EN MOINS HONNÊTE, DE PLUS EN PLUS CHARLATAN !

Image
The latest book by Guy Rossatanga-Rignault Le dernier ouvrage de Guy Rossatanga-Rignault (Photo : Gabonreview)


English version
Guy Rossatanga-Rignault is a very important person in Gabon, in the sense that he is a "great" man who has an important function in the Ali Bongo’s regime. He is Assistant Secretary General of the Presidency. We have said it, he is not just anyone.
Guy Rossatanga-Rignault is also a writer in his spare time. The quality of his work is becoming increasingly questionable, hence this post! He has indeed recently launched the publication in Libreville of his new book, whose title is “Les Grandes Dates du Gabon” (The Great Dates of Gabon). With such a title, one would have thought that this book would be a chronological and honest ephemeris of major events that have marked the history of Gabon; but that was too much to ask the Deputy General Secretary of the Presidency. This book turns out to be an alibi for Guy Rossatanga-Rignault to rewrite the history of Gab…

THE WHITE ELEPHANT IS GOING WELL IN GABON. L’ÉLÉPHANT BLANC SE PORTE BIEN AU GABON

Image

English version
The elephant is threatened with extinction in Gabon, we are told, and it is a protected species receiving the full attention of the most important nature conservation organizations in the world. But beware, the elephant under threat in Gabon is the forest and savannah gray elephant gray; but there is in Gabon, another kind of elephant with sparkling health. This elephant has never been so present and robust: it is the white elephant! This elephant is not about to disappear as long as the Bongos hold power. This elephant seems to be their symbol, their totem!
In Libreville, on the waterfront of the Sainte Marie Valley, stands an imposing white elephant in all its splendor (see above photo). The authorities are proud of it and exhibit it as a symbol of the vitality of Gabon. This white elephant of Gabon, big and majestic in the heart of the capit…
