For their freedom and ours
Yesterday, Ghana celebrated Founders' Day. At the departmental party there were a couple of things done to mark the event. One was to replay Nkrumah's speech on 6 March 1957. Another was to have us foreign guests reenact the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 and the carving up of Africa. But, it is clear that Ghana today is a free country. Palestine is still not free from colonialism and looking at the recent speeches by Obama and Perry it appears the US is no longer independent as well. The complete surrender by almost all US politicians to the most extreme elements of the Zionist movement is almost enough to make me lose my fufu.
