Oceanic earthquakes and tectonic slides of the kind that happened in the Indian Ocean on 26 December 2004 can generate powerful energy that can set in motion some of the most dangerous tsunami waves causing vast devastation in their wake.
This natural occurrence has its parallel also in the human relations. In 1884 at the Conference in Berlin, the Colonisation Tsunami unleashed powerful energy in Europe sending waves leading to the colonisation of Africa, causing death and devastation to the peoples and institutions of Africa. It has taken Africa nearly a hundred years to recover from it. But now Africa has been hit by yet another tsunami wave – that of Globalisation.

I had never been to Africa, and kept asking myself if it made sense to fly to Nairobi for the World Social Forum (WSF, in January 2007). Luckily I finally decided to go, and got two trips in one. The first was to the world of the WSF, which I already knew to some extent. The second was – thanks to new friends I met there – a brief encounter with the reality of Kenya.

Nunu Kidane (2007-02-28)
This year's World Social Forum was held in Nairobi Kenya, the first in the African continent. Many who participated in it have written their accounts of the Forum, and the significance to the movement building towards another, a better world. What seemed to be missing from the accounts I've read is that while we were in Nairobi, the US bombed the East African country Somalia in what was falsely justified as a move to eradicate Al Queda operatives in the Horn of Africa.

The Anti-Privatisation Forum Gears itself Up for the Human Rights Day Protest
Forty-seven years ago, on 21 March 1960, the apartheid police force killed 69 people and injured many peaceful protesters who were struggling against the apartheid pass laws and apartheid in general. The commemoration of the Sharpville Massacre became to be known as Sharpville Day. Sharpville Day is now called the Human Rights Day, a day in which South Africa is supposed to reflect on issues concerning all aspect of human rights.

A general strike in January 2007 lasted for 18 days. At least 59 people were killed. The protesters called President Lansana Conte to resign. Conte has been in power since a coup in 1984. He agreed to appoint a consensus prime minister and lower fuel and rice prices in negotiations with the trade unions to end the strike. Another strike started when Conte did not keep his promise, again many people were killed or injured by gunfire, and Conte declared martial law.

Mehr als 60000 TeilnehmerInnen registrierten sich beim Weltsozialforum (WSF) in Nairobi, Kenia. Zum siebten Mal fand das WSF parallel zum Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos (WEF) statt. Harsche Kritik aufgrund von Ausgrenzung begleitete das WSF, sogar die Abschlußerklärung der Versammlung sozialer Bewegung ging auf zu hohe Preise für Teilnahmegebühren und Essen ein. Selbst das Trinkwasser wurde in Plastikflaschen zum vierfach erhöhten Preis verkauft.

More than 60000 participants were registered at the World Social Forum (WSF) in Nairobi, Kenya. This was the seventh edition of the WSF in parallel to the World Economic Forum in Davos (WEF). There was harsh criticism about exclusion during the WSF, and the Final Call of the Assembly of Social Movements mentioned too high prices for participants' fees and food. Even drinking water was sold at a price that was four times higher than usual.

Ann Kithaka, Advocate, Kenya (2006-07-06)
Despite the Protocol on the Rights of Women coming into force in November 2005, the event has gone unmarked in Kenya because of preoccupation with the referendum, writes Ann Kithaka. Concern about women's rights are not being taken seriously and impunity seems to be the norm.

Senegal was one of the first African countries to engage in
privatisation of key sectors of its economy. Although Ghana now
provides a "model" for international financial institutions, in
particular the World Bank, Senegal soon found a place among those
"pupils" instanced as examples of privatisation, writes Hawa Ba. The
economic process set in motion at the end of the 70s had as its
natural corollary the retreat of the State from the guardianship of
key economic sectors and the selling off of national corporations.

Lesotho used to be an oasis of freedom in the middle of apartheid South Africa; now it's an oasis of poverty. The small kingdom however has one resource promising increased welfare for all: trickling mountain brooklets. The Mohale Dam uniting them for further exports to South Africa is soon to be finished, but the most visible result so far is that more than 30,000 people have lost all they had due to the dams.
