A homeless in Paris. D.R.

It was noxious. On a poster, a young African woman is resting on the ground, her breasts are exposed, one leg bent suggestively. Right behind her, a wild-looking black girl with red hair is wagging her hips.

What I am observing is not an ancient pornographic cartoon. It is an old, official poster, which is advertising a so-called ‘human zoo’, or as it used to be called in French: ‘Jardin Zoologique D’Acclimatation’. And it is not hanging somewhere around Pigalle, but in a highly ‘respectable’ Army Museum, Musée de l’Armée, in the enormous palace – Hôtel national des Invalides – near the Military School, Napoleon’s Tomb and the headquarters of UNESCO.

On this matter, Iman Hassan wrote for ‘Africa Matters’ in 2013:

“In the 19th and 20th century, Human Zoos were public exhibits of indigenous people to demonstrate the customs and lifestyles of the ‘uncivilized’ in comparison to the ‘civilized’ western nations. The infamous ‘Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation’ was used as a means for the imperialist tyrants to feed their fascination with pseudo-scientific studies. In particular, surrounding racial differences amongst them and the indigenous nations they colonized. The Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation housed various ethnic groups who had all been subsequently taken from their homelands and relocated to Paris as species for the human exhibit. As I began to read more and more about this institution, I came across an article titled ‘Les Somalis au Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation’ which elaborated on the experiences of the Somalis inhabiting the exhibit in Paris. The zoo was one huge scientific exhibition to reaffirm the ignorant belief that Western culture was the pinnacle of social evolution. The zoo housed a caravan filled with twenty-six Somali children, men and women, who all belonged to various tribes, including the tribe my father belonged too…”

The Army Museum in Paris is also where posters that glorify the mass murder of African people are still proudly hanging on its walls, side by side with the ‘artworks’ celebrating the French conquest of Madagascar. Lire la suite »

Henry Kissinger. D.R.

Con el fin de realizar mejor nuestro trabajo de aceptar la opinión de diversas personalidades, incluso aquellos por las que no sentimos simpatía – lo que se llama ética periodística – le habíamos pedido una entrevista al Dr. Kissinger con el fin obtener su testimonio acerca de su larga carrera política que hizo historia, incluso para alguien que no es un buen hombre. Después de mucho tiempo ignorando nuestras peticiones, hemos recibido su respuesta felicitándonos por nuestro profesionalismo, pero eso no era nada más que una manera de esquivar la cosas como loa ha hecho usted toda su vida. Aunque usted nos ha dado las gracias por nuestro trabajo de investigación, junto a su curso, nos preguntamos si esto es un cumplido o un insulto para nosotros y para muchos de aquellos que son nuestros lectores. Su negativa no sorprende porque sabemos de su capacidad para eludir las preguntas incómodas. El juez chileno Juan Guzmán entendió eso demasiado, ya que nunca quiso responder treinta preguntas que le envió a Ud. sobre su relación con Pinochet. En cuanto a la citación judicial dirigida a usted por un juez francés en una de sus visitas a París, usted decidió salir de Francia en lugar de responder la citación. Parece que los jueces y la persecución colectiva lo quieren a usted en todo el mundo por sus crímenes de guerra. ¿Cómo es que usted siempre sale libre mientras es requerido en varios países?

No, we do not want to your interview, Mr. Kissinger!

Henry Kissinger. D.R.

In order to best perform our work by giving the floor to various figures, even those for which we have no sympathy – this is called journalistic ethics-, we had asked you for an interview to obtain your testimony on your long political career that made history, even if it is not in the good sense of the word. After skipping long our solicitations, we received your response soothing where you have congratulated us for our professionalism, but that was nothing more that a way to flee as you have done it your whole life. Although you have thanked us for our investigative work, knowing your political career, we wonder if it is a compliment or an insult to us and to our readers. Your refusal does not surprise us because we know your faculty to avoid embarrassing questions. The Chilean judge Juan Guzman has understood it too, since you have never wanted to answer to his thirty questions about your links with Pinochet that he submitted you. Regarding the quote to appear that addressed you a French judge during one of your trips to Paris, you preferred to flee France rather than respond. It seems that judges and collectives chase you each other across the planet for war crimes. How are you always in freedom while you are searched in several countries? Lire la suite »

Version française sur Oximity: http://www.oximity.com/article/Andre-Vltchek-Les-dogmes-Chrétien-1

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Recientemente envió una carta abierta a su amigo, el Presidente Maduro, hecho publico en la prensa, donde se menciona la necesidad de tonar las armas si es necesario para luchar contra el plan occidental que apunta a una recolonizacion del mundo. ¿Cree usted en la necesidad de una resistencia global al imperialismo y al neocolonialismo que intensifican cada vez más su agresion?

Andre Vltchek: El imperialismo nunca desaparece; voluntariamente nunca deja en paz al mundo. Durante todos aquellos largos siglos del pasado, la gente tuvo que luchar por su libertad, por la verdadera independencia. Tuvieron que luchar fuerte. Lo mismo está sucediendo ahora: países que no quieren sucumbir ante el terror y el control del mundo occidental, están de pie, altos y orgullosos, en la defensa de sus tierras de origen, poniendo en riesgo su propia existencia: Venezuela y Cuba, Ecuador y Bolivia, China y Rusia, Irán y Eritrea, Zimbabwe y muchos otros, en todos los continentes.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You recently sent an open letter to your friend, president Maduro, made public in the press, where you mention the necessity of taking weapons if needed to fight the western plan which aims at a recolonization of the world. Do you believe in the need for global resistance to imperialism and neocolonialism who intensify their aggression ?

Andre Vltchek : Imperialism never disappears; it never leaves peacefully, voluntarily. For all those long centuries, people had to fight for their freedom, for true independence. They had to struggle. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen : Vous avez récemment envoyé une lettre ouverte à votre ami le président Nicolas Maduro, rendue publique dans la presse, où vous mentionnez la nécessité de prendre les armes si nécessaire pour combattre le plan occidental qui vise à recoloniser le monde. Croyez-vous en la nécessité d’une résistance globale à l’impérialisme et au néo-colonialisme qui intensifient leur agression ?

Andre Vltchek : L’impérialisme ne disparaît jamais volontairement et il ne laisse jamais en paix. Tout au long de ces siècles, les gens ont dû lutter pour leur liberté et pour une véritable indépendance. Ils ont dû se battre. Lire la suite »
