🇸🇳#Senegal: only peaceful transfers of power since independence!

Rich & rare tradition of #democracy in W. #Africa.

Sadly, past 2 presidents toyed with 3rd terms.

Wade tried in 2012 & triggered violence.

Now Pres. Macky Sall @Macky_Sall flirts with same destructive idea. ImageImageImageImage
I was working from #Senegal in 2012 & saw how far then-President Wade had gone astray from initial high hopes.

Like bringing in North Koreans to erect a pricey monument, then demanding a 35% cut of ticket prices because he felt the idea was his intellectual property. Image
When Pres. Wade tried to extend his term in 2012, #Senegal's people backed him down.

One opposition figure seen in the streets?

Now-president @Macky_Sall

11 years later, he's considering the same play.

You'd think he would remember the forces his predecessor unleashed. Image

I took a break so let's talk, It's been a while. Having an intense training in #Senegal while #Gaza is under attack & worrying about my family, friends & people there is taking a toll & I want to openly share with U since I used #Twitter as a space therapeutic space from day 1.
As humanitarians & activists we find ourselves between 1-wanting to stay strong & always speak up without sharing frustration & exhaustion because it's less about us & more about the cause/people we represent, & 2-Being told to shut up, conform, compromise & just silently accept.
We often push ourselves past any limit, we work hard & we put ourselves last. We tend to not want to be labeled as those who always speak up fearing the "troublemaker" label. I often find some us being gaslit into oppressing our trueselves to not rock any boats.

“Le génocide voilé” de Tidiane N’Diaye raconte la traite arabo-islamique sur les africains noirs.
Déroulez pour les meilleurs extraits. (Certaines illustrations sont de Midjourney V) ⤵️ ImageImage
En 652, le traité (bakht) de soumission des Nubiens aux conquérants arabo-islamiques stipule article 5 : “vous livrerez chaque année 360 esclaves de qualité à l’imam des musulmans.”
👉 la traite négrière est désormais inventée et planifiée.
En théorie certains hadiths de l’islam protège le noir musulman de l’esclavage.
👉 En pratique, l’auteur cite de nombreux exemples invalidant cette thèse.
Ainsi celui du roi de Bornou (1391) qui se plaint au sultan d’Egypte des razzias contre son peuple ou du roi Zakaria (831)…… Image

#Sénégal #EmergencesNoirs
capitale du Sénégal, qui représente avant tout le poumon économique de tout le pays. Avec plus de deux millions d’habitants, la ville est réputée pour sa vie active.
Comment visiter le Sénégal sans voir Le lac Rose,situé à 30 kilomètres au nord-est de la capitale.
Les couleurs évoluent selon les rayons du soleil, pouvant virer au mauve si la couleur est très présente,voire ne pas faire apparaître de rose du tout certains jours

A 🧵 about ethical ways to build an image bank in #comdev, #globaldev:

At @Streetnet1, we never had a professional image bank until last year. That's when we made the decision to hire professional photographers in each region we work to take pictures-especially portraits. (1/6)
We wanted portraits of street vendors doing their work in a dignified way. But we did not want these vendors to be anonymous faces. We put the photographers in contact with our affiliates on the ground to capture their members, their names, their stories (with permission). (2/6)
That is why I can tell you, for example, that this vendor's name is Oeun Malis, and she is a member of our affiliate IDEA in #Cambodia. She's been vending for 5 years & was 28 years old at the time.

We can't get the same level of detail for all photos. But we sure tried. (3/6)

En Afrique, la #France est "malmenée", "coulée" par la #Russie.

Le déclin de la #France accélère. Après la #CentreAfrique, le #Mali, le #Burkina, c'est au tour de la #Côte_d_Ivoire. Image
0⃣La #France voit son influence attaquée dans la plupart des pays d’Afrique de l’Ouest, où certaines populations et leurs dirigeants n’hésitent pas à afficher leur mépris grandissant pour l’ancien colonisateur, voire directement pour la personne d’Emmanuel #Macron Image
1⃣ Le ministère français des Affaires étrangères a annoncé, jeudi dernier, le rappel de son ambassadeur, au lendemain de l'ultimatum posé par le #BurkinaFaso à la #France, consistant au départ des forces spéciales françaises du pays dans un délai d’un mois

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.

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

With the #FIFAWorldCup group stages complete, we review the teams' and players' performance using advanced metrics 🧵

#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.

November 20 in the #History of #Eritrea.
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.
2. At Nairobi Peace talks, they agreed on 3 issues that weren't agreed upon in #Atlanta, cleared the way for substantive negotiations, agreed to invite ex #Tanzanian Pres. Nyerere to be co-host wz Carter during the main talks & the 2 agreed to choose the sec & support staff.
3. The most difficult issue that the Parties discussed & finally agreed was "who would serve as int'l observer" during the main talks. 7 observers, 2 by each Party & 3 by mutual consent. #Kenya, #Sudan, #Tanzania, #OAU, #Zimbabwe & #Senegal were invited & accepted the invitation

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.
