WHERE HAVE THE DIALOGUERS GONE? OÙ SONT DONC PASSÉS LES DIALOGUEURS ?

Image
English version

In its General Report of the Political Dialogue, the regime assigned the follow-up of a certain number of decisions to a supposed "Monitoring Committee". As you can see from the pictures above, this report is full of actions that this Monitoring Committee should have undertaken.
But now, the regime has just announced that this Monitoring Committee will never see the light of day. Which means that the promises made become obsolete because, who would implement and verify them?
What do our dear dialoguers who had swallowed all these promises, hook, line and sinker, think of this?

Luckily as for us, we will not give up!

Dans son Rapport General du Dialogue Politique, le régime assigna le suivi d’un certain nombre de décisions a un supposé « Comité de Suivi ». Comme vous pouvez vous en rendre compte sur les images ci-dessus, ce rapport est bourré d’actions qu’aurait dû entreprendre ce Comité de Suivi.
Mais voilà, le régime vient d’annoncer que ce Comité…

English version
The results are here. For the 2017 Baccalaureate, the failure rate is around 90%. This is unheard of, and may even be a world record.
And yet, Ali Bongo in his 2015 budget bill, had made beautiful promises to us as shown in the pictures above.
We are in 2017, for what results Mr. Ali Bongo?


Version française
Les résultats sont là. Pour le baccalauréat 2017, le taux d’échec avoisine les 90%. C’est du jamais vu, et peut être même un record mondial.
Et pourtant, Ali Bongo dans sa loi des finances 2015, nous avait fait de bien belles promesses comme indiqué sur les images ci-dessus.
Nous sommes en 2017, pour quel bilan Monsieur Ali Bongo ?

LISTEN CAREFULLY TO WHAT FABIEN MÉRÉ HAS TO SAY. ÉCOUTEZ ATTENTIVEMENT LES PROPOS DE FABIEN MÉRÉ

English version

The video above presents a fluid conversation between Fabien Méré, a Gabonese lawyer who fights for democracy, and a compatriot. Appreciate the depth of the debate which also has the peculiarity to be of a brilliant simplicity. It is true that truth and logic often flow effortlessly.
Contrast this video with that of the press conference held by 5 Ali Bongo's underlings this Friday, which is filled with lies, threats and negation of everything that seems obvious.

We will not give up!

Contrastez cette vidéo avec celle de la conférence de presse tenue par 5 sous-fifres d’Ali Bongo ce Vendredi, qui elle est remplie de mensonges, de menaces et de négation de tout ce…

THE LAST JOLTS OF AN AGONIZING REGIME. LES DERNIERS SOUBRESAUTS D’UN RÉGIME À L’AGONIE

Image
English version
In what appeared to have been the regime last stand, 5 Ali Bongo dead enders had a press conference in Libreville, trying to convince themselves that their regime had any future. It was a pathetic exercise in futility.
These 5 Ali Bongo’s minions set out to demonstrate how and why their regime was going to be able to maintain its dominance of the Gabonese political system; they even promised that they and only they would be capable of reforming the Gabonese political system for our collective betterment. This is of course laughable since we have heard this tune before.
What these people do not realize is that their regime is passionately rejected by the majority of Gabonese citizens; but they nonetheless doggedly continue to pursue a policy of repression of the people through the imposition of stringent security measures to combat dissent within the country. This regime pretends to ignore just how isolated it has become.
Today we are in a stalemate between the Ali Bongo’s …

The silent protest parade in New York City in 1917 LA marche de protestation silencieuse à New York en 1917




Gabonese at Jean Ping’s arrival
Les Gabonais à l’arrivée de Jean Ping



English version
One hundred years ago, on the 28th of July 1917, ten thousand Black Americans demonstrated in silence in the street of New York City to protest against racial inequality.
On the afternoon of Saturday, 28 July 1917, nearly 10,000 Blacks marched down Fifth Avenue, in silence, to protest racial violence and white supremacy in the United States. New York City and the USA, had never before witnessed such a remarkable scene.
This “Silent Protest Parade,” was the first mass Black American demonstration and marked a watershed moment in the history of the civil rights movement. These protesters marched against the brutal treatment of black people; they indicted the United States as an unjust nation.
This 1917 “Silent Protest” marked the beginning of a new era in the long black freedom struggle. While adhering t…

ALI BONGO STILL PRACTICES LOW RENT ETHNIC POLITICS. ALI BONGO TOUJOURS DANS LA PRATIQUE D’UNE POLITIQUE ETHNIQUE AU RABAIS

Image
English version
The academic definition of the term "geopolitics" in other countries, refers to the study of rivalries of power over specific territories and the inhabitants therein. But in the Bongos’ Gabon, geopolitics simply refers to the sharing of patronage between individuals originating from various provinces, without necessarily complying with any criterion of competence.
It is La Lettre du Continent that tells us that Ali Bongo has just undertaken a geopolitical rebalancing of his cabinet. He would have decided to appoint one individual from each of the nine provinces of the country as head of each department of his presidential cabinet.
Thus, the outgoing Special Advisor Flavien Enongoué was replaced by another native of the Ogooué-Ivindo, Patrick Ndong.
Jean-Yves Teale, the head of the diplomatic department, who is from Estuaire, remains at his post.
Haut-Ogooue, giving honour where honour is due, collects two departments: that of mines and hydrocarbons directed by Vin…

BETTER QUALITY PICTURES OF JEAN PING’S RETURN TO LIBREVILLE. DES IMAGES DE MEILLEURES QUALITÉ SUR LE RETOUR DE JEAN PING À LIBREVILLE

Image
English version

None of these Gabonese was bought. They all left their homes spontaneously.
None of these Gabonese received a T-shirt or sandwich. They all found a yellow garment in their own wardrobe, to wear the color of the day.
None of these Gabonese was transported by bus, or by military truck. They moved around by their own means.
That's what legitimacy looks like.
This Gabonese people say again and still demonstrate that it will not give up!





Version française
Aucun de ces gabonais n’a été acheté. Ils sont tous sortis de chez eux spontanément.
Aucun de ces Gabonais n’a reçu de T-shirt ni de sandwich. Ils ont tous trouvé un vêtement jaune dans leur propre garde-robe, pour être à la couleur du jour.
Aucun de ces Gabonais n’a été transporté par bus, ou par camion militaire. Ils se sont déplacés avec leurs propres moyens.
C’est à cela que ressemble la légitimité.
Ce peuple Gabonais dit bien et démontre encore qu’il ne lâche rien !

SLAVES WHO ARE AFRAID OF FREEDOM. DES ESCLAVES QUI ONT PEUR DE LA LIBERTÉ

Image
English version
In Gabon, we have the impression that freedom is frightening for some people. But why be so afraid of freedom? Who are these Gabonese who sell themselves because some banknotes represent more to them than living in freedom?
Who feels a sense of danger in the state of non-servitude? Faced with the ability to say yes or no in their daily existence? Who are these people who are psychically marked to the point of thinking that there is a danger to the fact of being able to choose one's destiny and self-determination?
How can one fear freedom and want so much oppression? How can one love bondage to such an extent? Is it by cowardice, or by laziness?
How can one dread freedom and flee it by taking refuge in voluntary servitude?
Who are these Gabonese who have been trained so well that today they do not even want their descendants to be free?
But let us ask the following question: the one who is afraid of becoming free, what exactly are they?

We will not give up!

THE FRENCH AMBASSADOR IN GABON HAD COMPLAINED ABOUT THE INTERRUPTION OF EDOUARD VALENTIN’S COFFEE BREAK. L’AMBASSADEUR DE FRANCE AU GABON S’EST PLAINT DE L’INTERRUPTION DE LA PAUSE CAFÉ D’ÉDOUARD VALENTIN

Image
English version
During the meeting organized this Sunday between Jean Ping, the team that accompanied him, and the Gabonese Diaspora in Paris; Jean Ping made a very instructive revelation. He told us that he had been the object of intense criticism because of the interruption by the resistance, of Edouard Valentin’s coffee break, the father of Sylvia Bongo; Yes that one who spends from time to time 1 million euros at the jewelers of the Place Vendôme.
The French Ambassador went to protest to Jean Ping, telling him that Edouard Valentin is an old man and that the Resistance could have caused him a heart attack.
Rightfully, Jean Ping’s camp replied to the French Ambassador that the patriot Marceau Malekou had been tortured by the Ali Bongo regime. To which this blog adds that at no time did the French Embassy publicly ask the regime to respect the rights of the Gabonese people.
The attack on Jean Ping's HQ took place under the watchful eyes of the French forces of the 6th BIMA, without …

Le Président du Gabon Ali Bongo Avait Rencontré le Secrétaire Général Guterres, Jean Ping Annule le Voyage Pour le Rencontrer, Reuters Observe le Silence au sujet de la Présidence de l’Assemblée Générale

Par Matthew Russell Lee

NATIONS UNIES, 22 juillet - Lorsque le Secrétaire général de l'ONU, Antonio Guterres, plus tôt cet été, a rencontré Ali Bongo et fait une photo avec lui, qui, avec son père, Omar, ont gouverné consécutivement le Gabon sans discontinuer depuis 1967 ; cette rencontre commença avec 15 minutes de retard. Non pas parce que Bongo devait recevoir un autre prix douteux en marge de la parfois douteuse Conférence sur les océans, mais parce que Guterres était retenu par un autre visiteur non mentionné. C'est Inner City Press qui l’a vu, il s’agissait de l'ambassadeur de l'Arabie saoudite à l'ONU, probablement passé discuter de l'impasse avec le Qatar. Le porte-parole de Guterres, Stéphane Dujarric, a répété à plusieurs reprises…
