#signare
Dérivé de la senhora portugaise, le mot signare représente les femmes africaines qui ont conclu des unions conjugales temporaires avec des marchands, des fonctionnaires ou des soldats européens qui résidaient sur la côte sénégambienne à l’époque de la traite
transatlantique des esclaves.
Sur les colonies insulaires de Gorée et de Saint-Louis, les habitants et les fonctionnaires ont interprété signare comme un titre faisant référence aux femmes africaines et afro-européennes qui possédaient des biens et jouissaient d’un statut
social élevé.
Bien que le terme connote un mélange interracial dans l’ancienne colonie française du Sénégal, des termes tels que nhara, senora et dona décrivaient le même modèle d’interaction africaine et européenne qui a émergé le long du littoral de l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du

Il y a quelques jours, la toile s’est indigné face aux témoignages d’expatriés et étudiants africains, moyen-orientaux et asiatiques en #ukraine étant empêchés de fuir le conflit par les services de sécurité sur la base de leurs couleurs de peau. 1/6
Le Président du #Senegal Macky Sall avait déclaré que cela constitue un acte raciste en rupture du droit international. Le Ministre des Affaires Étrangères #Ukrainien , avait assuré sur son compte #Twitter que l'#Ukraine ferai le nécessaire pour résoudre ce problème. 2/6
Moins d’1 semaine après, le compte #Facebook de l’ambassade #ukrainienne au #Senegal recrutait des #mercenaires dans le pays.

Difficile en tant que Guadeloupéen de regarder ce docu sur les difficultés rencontrées par les pêcheurs espagnols avec les algues, sans penser à ce que les #antilles connaissent avec les sargasses mm si les origines diffèrent (Amazonie VS Asie?) #écologie
Une étude (2019) parlait pour la #Caraïbe de phénomène "connecté à deux facteurs : d'une part, la hausse de la déforestation et de l'utilisation d'engrais en Amazonie à partir de 2009 et d'autre part, des courants ascendants venus d'Afrique de l'Ouest."
geo.fr/environnement/…
Mais une autre étude (2021) semblait nuancer le rôle de la déforestation et pollution sur les fleuves : de ce que je comprends ce ne serait pas la *cause* de la prolifération des sargasses, ms cela pourrait être un *facteur* de ce qui les fait croître. Attendons la suite donc... Image

So now we know: footballers and their fans in England can get away with sexual violence and racism. The red line is animal abuse. How about accountability for all forms of abuse? h/t @rerutled
You all know by now, I’ve supported Manchester United since 1976, when I was 9. My next essay will be about #MUFC, football and gender-based violence. Until then, here’s one I wrote for the Euros last summer feministgiant.com/p/essay-when-f…
And hearing now via @RosebellK that women were sexually assaulted during African Cup of Nations victory celebrations in #Senegal is reminder of what I say in my essay: football is one of the many outlets that patriarchy offers to cis men as an excuse to treat us like shit

⚽️Cuando era chico, Sadio Mané estuvo desaparecido durante dos semanas y su familia se desesperó: estaba en Dakar, intentando cumplir su sueño de ser futbolista profesional.

Los inicios de la máxima figura de 🇸🇳#Senegal 👇
Mané nació en 1992 en Bambali, un pueblito senegalés, y desde que tiene uso de razón soñó con ser futbolista. Pero su familia no creía que podía llegar a triunfar con la pelota en los pies.
Un amigo le dijo que en Dakar iba a haber una importante prueba de jugadores para el Génération Foot y no dudó en ir: se escapó de su casa y fue.

Sus familiares lo buscaron durante dos semanas, hasta que lo hallaron en la capital senegalesa.

🇬🇶A partir del 2003, #GuineaEcuatorial dejó de ser uno de las selecciones más débiles de África: fue a buscar a sus descendientes que jugaban en España.

Pero después se entusiasmó y reclutó también brasileños y colombianos... y explotó la polémica.

¡Abrimos hilo!👇 Image
#GuineaEcuatorial jugó su primer partido en 1975 y, hasta 2003, jugó con futbolistas locales. Era apodado "Basilé Nacional" y era considerada una de las selecciones más fáciles de vencer en el continente.

En esa etapa, no pudo clasificar a ninguna Copa Africana. Image
🇪🇸 "¿Y si vamos a buscar a nuestros descendientes que juegan en España?", se preguntaron en la Federación.

Así empezaron a formar su primer gran equipo con nombres como Iván Zarandona, Rodolfo Bodipo, Sergio Barila y los hermanos Edjogo-Owono. Image

A summary of what we know about Delta so far 7th sept 2021, scientifically:

- Vaccines
Vaccinated people are sick for less time and less severely + less time infectious
Moderna offers the best protection with +80% protection: so less than 20% still gets sick
Pfizer offers about 70% protection, but protection decreases over time, especially in people over 60: in Israel, 60% of people in the hospital are now fully vaccinated
Many countries give 3rd Pfizer shot after 5 months, there is even talk of a 4th shot in Israel.
@AstraZeneca and @JNJ only offer 40% protection. Protection with J&J is said to increase for 8 months, but more than half of the 'fully vaccinated' are susceptible to Delta.
Combination of different types of vaccines probably offers a higher protection rate.

C'est #CaMeDitCulture. Connaissez-vous le lien de Jacob Desvarieux avec le #Sénégal ? Kassav avec l'Afrique ?
Quand il avait 10 ans @JacobDesvarieux est venu vivre au Sénégal pour 2 ans et demi. Il habitait en face d'une maison de musiciens (surprise) ⤵️⤵️⤵️
📸 S. Tourné
L'aîné de la famille d'en face était musicien professionnel et tous ses petits frères jouaient de la guitare. La maman de Jacob avait offert une guitare au garçon "pour qu'il s'occupe" mais celui-ci n'avait jamais appris à jouer.
#JacobDesvarieux #Sénégal
PIc : @KASSAV_OFFICIAL
Les petits frères du fameux musicien utilisaient donc sa guitare pour jouer pendant que lui observait. Alors il a demandé au musicien qui lui apprit ainsi à jouer une chanson.

A young woman has said an opposition leader in #Senegal raped her.

That opposition figure is himself a victim of state repression. Anti-government protests have erupted in his support.

When women’s bodies are used as proxy battlefields, read feminists africanfeminism.com/freeadjisarr-t…
“To speak out vs a powerful political figure...is almost to give up before you even start. How can we get Adji Sarr the support she needs at this time? We fail her when we only stick to the narrative of the powerful, even when that powerful person has been a victim of the state”
“When we fail to question why the leader is asking for charges to be dropped and the young woman’s in hiding, her life in danger, the democracy and freedom we are screaming while waving the Senegalese flag is not for everyone.”
