Africa & British imperialism today

Africa   British 4a4e3497e11d0Africa possesses a major share of the world's most precious resources. Yet it also contains many of the world's poorest peoples: all 21 countries on the United Nations' 'Low Development' list are in Africa. These two facts are linked - both in terms of past history and politics today.

For three hundred years Africa's labour power was enslaved, transported to the Americas and used to produce the materials that ultimately fuelled the West's industrial revolution. For the following two centuries Africa was pillaged for its raw materials and agricultural produce.

Britain was the biggest slave trader. It was also the biggest colonialist. Today it remains the key player in Africa's subjection to external big business. British companies are disproportionately involved in the deepening exploitation of the continent's resources and people. The British State still acts as the key enforcer.
