Does the Western Left Have an African Problem? 16.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
A young boy looks on from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), as smoke rises from an ongoing attack, allegedly carried out by the Seleka Militia on the village of Mobaye in Central African Republic (CAR) on September 21, 2017 in Mobayi-Mbongo. (Photo: JOHN WESSELS / AFP / Getty Images) Most Western leftists who espouse anti-imperialist, antiwar, anti-colonial politics agree that there can be no hierarchies of oppression, but that rhetoric does not hold up when it comes to African countries, their revolutionaries and self-determination struggles. In fact, African countries and their politics are almost never discussed in leftist circles except to make points about imperialism or China.

The Journalist and the Fixer: Who Makes the Story Possible? 5.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Truthout refuses corporate funding and all the strings that come attached. Instead, reader support powers us. Make a tax-deductible donation today! We were already roaring down the road when the young man called to me over his shoulder. There was a woman seated between us on the motorbike and with the distance, his accent, the rushing air, and the engine noise, it took a moment for me to decipher what he had just said: We might have enough gas to get to Bamurye and back.
