Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Denmark
The Honorable Helle Thorning-Schmidt

Africa is Sovereign and WILL NOT ACCEPT being Re-colonized

    1. Petition by

      Justiça Ambiental/ Friends of the Earth Mozambique

This petition is based on an Open Letter with the same title, written by Friends of the Earth Africa and signed by many NGO's and other groups from Africa and other parts of the World, and which is being handed over to several Danish Embassies all over Africa since yesterday afternoon, but since it is a matter that concerns all civil society and not only its organizations, it is fundamental that we get your support, so that together we can tell Mr. Friis Bach and all who think like him that their neocolonialist views and plans for Africa and the planet are unacceptable, illegitimate and not welcome.

      Nous ne sommes plus à l'époque où les autres doivent décider à notre place. En Afeique nous savons quelle agriculture pratiquer pour le bien être des communautés locales et de toutes les populations, donc nous n'avons pas à recevoir de leçons de qui que ce soit.Tout système qui mettra en péril la souveraineté alimentaire nos populations ou tentera de s'accaparer de nos sera combattu. Laissez les Africains décider de comment produire!!

      Because the transition from mall holder agriculture to modernized processes, threatens the integrity of the food system and the ecology which supports it. This is because this approach to growing food takes control of the resource out of the hands of small scale farmers, disenfranchising them and consolidating control of the food system among too small a group of players.

      I do not support imperialism and I do not believe that a spread of capitalism is what will make the world a better place.

      Neo-colonialism is as criminal as "old" colonialism. Land-grapping, pollution, mass-urbanization and Capitalist free-market ideology is everything we should fight, not promote. The Minister for Development, Christian Friis Bach, speaks on behalf of the rich elites of the World, not in the interests of the global proletariat. We are many who support your struggle for sovereignity and for 'progress' and prosperity on your own premises, free from Imperialist exploitation.
