The African continent has been under European siege for 600 years. The current form of white men telling Africans to shut up and do as they are told are called “sanctions”. Listen to Rutendo Matinyarare explaining the origins and effects of the illegal US and European sanctions on his home country, Zimbabwe. Rutendo is a leader of the Zimbabwe Anti Sanction Movement (ZASM) and an expert on the country’s foreign policy.
African countries are now pro-actively working on creating alternative systems to participate in the global economy outside of the control of US and European empire. Cooperation among African nations and with nations not favoured by the West will increase on basis of local currencies and new systems. This is the second part of a talk with Rutendo Matinyarare, a Zimbabwen anti-sanctions activist and public intellectual.
