WATCH: #BNNSenegal Reports.

Russia's war in Ukraine is particularly hard on Africans, exacerbating food insecurity and putting an unnecessary strain on the continent's economy, according to US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen @SecYellen in Senegal's capital Dakar.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen @SecYellen also paid a solemn visit Saturday to the salmon-coloured house on an island off the coast of Senegal, which is one of the most recognized symbols of the horrors of the Atlantic slave trade,
...which enslaved tens of millions of Africans for generations.

Yellen, who was in Senegal as part of a 10-day trip to rebuild economic ties between the United States and Africa,

This year we witnessed some of the greatest challenges to open society values of our time. I'm hopeful that we can look to the progress we anticipate what’s over the horizon for this next year. Here are a few things that give me hope for 2023.
We were reminded in January that justice is possible with a landmark verdict in the first torture trial against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.…
2022 was also the year we said we would never abandon Ukraine. As Ukrainians push for accountability and healing amid the hard work of rebuilding and resilience we'll be with them every step of the way.…

Para entender el éxito de #PaísesBajos 🇳🇱 en el fútbol hay que mirar a una "nación olvidada" de #AméricaDelSur.

Hoy: ¡Nos vamos de viaje a #Surinam 🇸🇷! Hilo🧵 Image
#PaísesBajos 🇳🇱 está en los cuartos de final del #Mundial, sin perder ningún partido.

Le ganó a #Senegal 🇸🇳, #Qatar 🇶🇦 y #EEUU 🇺🇸.
Ahora, espera por #Argentina 🇦🇷.

Es un equipo muy fuerte.
Un equipo formado por la #Inmigración. Image
Muchos de los futbolistas de #PaísesBajos 🇳🇱podrían jugar para otras selecciones. Son hijos de #Inmigrantes; primera generación neerlandesa.
Algunos ejemplos:

-Memphis Depay: ascendencia ghanesa
-Nathan Aké: ascendencia marfileña
-Cody Gakpo: ascendencia ghanesa/togolesa ImageImageImage

#Germany, #France, #Brazil, #Argentina and #England have the best npxG difference (although #Germany's result is strongly influenced by their last match, 5.7 xG) Image
#Morocco, #Netherlands and #England have made the most of their chances, while #Canada, #Germany and #Qatar have reaped less than they have sown

#FIFAWorldCup Image
Looking at individual attacking performance, #Giroud and #Mbappe stand out from the pack. Jamal #Musiala confirms his status as one of the most exciting young talents, while Julian #Alvarez also impressed despite not having started all games

West Africa gets pretty bad coverage in the mainstream media - it’s all Monkeypox, coups and conflicts!

And that includes Senegal.

#Senegal #African #Africa #westafrica #panafricanism
But Senegal’s actually never had a coup and never waged war against its neighbours.

It’s one of the safest places you can visit.
Did you know that it will become the first African nation to host an Olympic event?

The Youth Olympic Games are coming in 2026 - an 18-day bonanza featuring 35 sports.

1. On Nov. 20 1989, #EPLF & the #Ethiopian gov/Derg began peace talks in #Nairobi, #Kenya under the auspices of @CarterCenter & by the invitation of President Arap Moi of Kenya. The peace talks lasted until November 29.

As a follow-up to my article on the #WorldCup2022 for @PillarCatholic, a couple of notes on religious aspects of this tournament.…
1. This is the first time the World Cup is being played in a Muslim country, and only the second outside of the traditionally Christian world. The first was South Korea & Japan in 2002.
2. 2002 also marked the furthest a traditionally Muslim country ever progressed in the World Cup, with #Turkey placing 3rd, after beating South Korea in a very exciting game.

She has refused to give police the name

Un cheikh contre l'esclavage

En 1084H (1673G), un imam du nom de Nāṣir al-Dīn déclare la guerre aux rois païens du Sénégal. Membre de la confrérie soufie de la Qadariyya, il souhaite mettre un terme à la vente d'esclaves musulmans aux Européens.

⬇️ Image
C'est la « guerre des marabouts ». Aidé par une population effrayée par les proportions prises par la traite transatlantique, Nāṣir al-Dīn va renverser les « collaborateurs » et s’imposer comme le nouveau leader de la région. Plus aucun esclave ou presque...

⬇️ parvient dès lors aux Français installés à Saint-Louis. Armant le camp adverse, les « négriers » parviennent à faire tuer Nāṣir al-Dīn en 1085H (1674G), avant de mettre un terme, trois ans plus tard, à la guerre des marabouts ».

En 2021, quelque 12.749 #Senegal-ais ont demandé le visa auprès de la #France ou de ses intermédiaires commerciaux. Quelque 7.064 d'entre eux ont obtenu le sésame Schengen et 3.166 dossiers ont été rejetés, soit un taux de rejet de 30,95%
Sur la base d'un visa qui coûte 80 euros (hors frais connexes), la #France aura donc encaissé 669,3 millions de FCFA. En se basant sur le Code communautaire des visas de l'UE (notamment son article 16), la France indique les visas ne sont pas remboursables.
La confusion des requérants vient du fait que seuls les frais de visa d'un dossier non reçu sont remboursables. Autrement dit, l'ambassade (ou les consulats) aussi bien que ses intermédiaires commerciaux s'assurent que votre dossier soit recevable.

1/5 On #NationalPeacekeepersDay, it's important to confront the myth that #Canada is a #peacekeeping country - it's not. Canada is ranked #71 in world w only 54 soldiers wearing @UN blue helmets, according to @UNPeacekeeping statistics: ⬇️ 🧵 Image
2/ In 2015 @JustinTrudeau govt came to power promising more peacekeeping, but didn't. In 2017 govt also launched #ElsieInitiative to increase women in @UN #peaceoperations, but only 18 Canadian ♀️ are on #peacekeeping. #Canada doesn't do peacekeeping because it doesn't want to. Image
3/ So what countries are doing #peacekeeping & helping the @UN? Global south countries: #Bangladesh ranked #1 w over 6K peacekeepers, #Nepal, #India, #Ghana, #Senegal & #China is ranked #10.
How about the #US, the world's biggest, most well-funded military? What's its ranking❓🤔 Image

Anti-France sentiment in #senegal or #mali is just the logical continuation of a French geopolitical policy largely Inherited from the colonial era.

France still own too much grip of African independent countries with its Franc CFA and former colonies still under French control
France could have honored its colonial past by abolishing debts, abolishing its grip on (UEMOA) abolishing this competition with other imperial powers of modern transColonialism pumping resources out of the African continent.

In fact France was on a unique position to
Not only empower African nations to thrive but France was on a historic position to also benefit from it.

But instead of empowering former colonies, France extracted all the value it could without much redistribution.

Over time, these same African nations got approached by
