MEDIA MESSAGE: A SECOND SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA

  1. The Green Room process excludes Africa. Africa is being marginalised on the very soil of Africa.
  2. A likely outcome of this non-transparent process would devastate Africa’s economy and Policy Space.
  3. This will create massive unemployment in Africa, especially youth and women. It will disposess millions people of their livelihoods and become internal refugees in Africa, and easily half a million people potential refugees heading for Europe no matter what the obstacles.
  4. Africa will work in solidarity with India to protest against an outcome that violates the food sovereignty and livelihoods of our people. Global South will not be divided and conquered.
  5. Africa should walk out of this conference; it has nothing for Africa that our governments can offer to our people.
  6. We denounce any effort by the industrialized countries to blame Africa and the developing countries if this Conference fails. The blame lies squarely with the developed countries who have designed an asymmetrical, unjust system of global trade governance.
  7. We appeal to our solidarity movements in other parts of the world to support the struggles of the people of Africa and Policy Space for our Governments.

This statement was drafted by the following as an urgent intervention in a fast-moving unfolding process from which Africa was excluded. We had to take a stand, and we hope that many more will join us to support this statement.
