FSM: Looting of Africa by multinationals and development banks (extractivism and public services)

Analyses and testimonials

What if the solution to climate change and environmental destruction came from the exploited countries? The policies of the Banks and the governments of Northern countries are designed to encourage the North to take control of the natural resources necessary for its “growth” (green or not) and for the enrichment of its multinationals and their shareholders. This “red carpet” rolled out to the extractive multinationals (minerals, oil, etc.) and to those buying up public services constitutes a plunder which encourages the waste of resources and consequently the devastation of the Planet. Africa is the first victim of this looting, which destroys its environment and despoils its people: testimonies from this continent will be shared.
