AUF Condemns Call to Recolonize Africa


The AUF is absolutely appalled by the neocolonialist remarks of Robert Cooper, the British Foreign Affairs Advisor to prime Minister Tony Blair.

It is absolutely reprehensible that a leader of the British government would call for recolonization of Africa, in total disregard of the sensibilities of the millions who died and continue to suffer in order to end the imperialist occupation and exploitation of Africa.

Regards,
Dan Kashagama
General Secretary

Blair aide calls for colonies
By Bob Roberts Political Correspondent


A SENIOR aide to Tony Blair yesterday called for a
return to colonialism.

Foreign affairs adviser Robert Cooper said: "What is
needed is a new kind of imperialism.

"The opportunities, perhaps even the need for
colonisation, is as great as it ever was in the 19th
century."

Mr Cooper added: "The weak still need the strong and
the strong still need an orderly world.

"A world in which the efficient and well-governed
export stability and liberty, and which is open for
investment and growth, seems eminently desirable."

He said Afghanistan showed what could happen if the
West did not intervene in the Third World.

Terrorists could use failed states as bases to attack
"orderly" nations.

His comments will anger MPs who think Labour is keener
on matters abroad than problems at home.

But Mr Blair stressed that the world couldn't submit
to the "savagery of the fanatic".
