 Anti-poverty group to hold conference on Africa’s exploitation

London, 15 Apr – (ANA) - A UK-based anti-poverty campaign organisation, The World Development Movement, is to hold a conference on “Africa: Resistance and exploitation” on 11 June in Oxford, England, it has been announced.

James O’Nions, Events and outreach officer, said debates would range from “How Europe underdeveloped Africa,” to “The struggle for liberation.” Other topics include “From food crisis to food sovereignity” and “Organising locally for global justice.”

World Development Movement, WDM, said Africa has some of the richest natural resources in the world, yet the majority of its people have been impoverished by decades of policies imposed by international finance institutions and northern governments.

These policies have enabled corporations to accumulate vast profits while dispossessing the people and the continent of its riches, often subsidised by public funds in the form of ‘aid’, WDM said. (ANA)
