‘In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.’

Somalia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Nigeria, Kenya, ‘DR’ Congo…The Black Continent.. is a mournful land;

where the death gets routine and just becomes  mere statistics,

where the innocent children are victims of the ancient colonization and drought crisis…

those unlucky children whom their graves were digged by the colonial powers  years ago,

those who embrace the misery along with the wealth,

those who are tired of living, sad and most importantly,

the millions who see ‘’to be violated by the  white men’’ as a destiny.

Somalia is an African country where the one child dies within six minutes,

30.000 of childen who melted down till their cells and died within three months.

Those are the children of a country which i dream it to be a part of the ‘United States of Africa’.

Africa…the lonelinest and the most beautiful continent of the world…

My country, Turkey could not remain insensitive and speechless just in that way. In fact, they did not remain silent and could not remain as well…The millions shared what they had in the face of this painful view touching their hearts even though they knew the fact that this was a temporary solution for Somalia which some of its parts became gangrenous…

Somalian people could not receive financial and moral support from the Western countries as much as i expected but the millions of my country offered their hands to those who needed humanitarian aid and relief throughout the Holy month Ramadan. Besides a muslim should have been helpful and well aware of the others’ lives around themselves. It was totally the right time to take an action.

Turkish people donated approximately 300 billion TL for Somalia and  Turkish Red Crescent (Türk Kızılayı), journalists, civil society organisations and the other volunteers went to the country to witness the survivors’ conditions in Dadaab Refugee Camp of UN where thousands of  Somalian people live under inhuman conditions with lack of food and drinking water. The witnesses stated that they were ashamed of their mankind when they saw the dramatic struggle for life.

Futhermore it was underlined that there should be done fundamental transformations in the country which will stop the civil war, teror attacks and the terrorists who put the barricade in  front of the people in need of aid.

The most important thing is that the government has to do is to make  constructive policies  to stop the increasing hunger, thirst and violence events; to struggle with the drought crisis and population growth. Unless the life conditions are convenient for the people living there, it should be forbidden to have babies more than two. Otherwise it should be applied some sanctions to make people conscious of the hard situation.

The other complicated issue is to stop the attacks of the Somalian pirates in Gulf of Aden. The government and the international public opinion has to move and be in a good cooperation with each other. ( It has been 11 months since 3 Turkish and 15 Georgian crew were captured by the Somalian pirates asking for  million dollars ransom and unfortunately we are still unable to receive any news from them after they took the control of the vessel 11 monts ago…We as Turkish government has to recover the diplomatic relations with Somalia government to save the crew if they are stil alive…)

In conclusion, you will easily remember that ‘UN Goodwill Ambassador’ Angelina Jolie once came to visit Syrian Refugee Camp in Hatay in July and this news made a huge sensation on the world channels but nothing’s changed in Assad’s Syria after Jolie’s visit as expected…Recently she has gone to Crotia in order to support Crotian areas to be cleared of mines. Thanks to you Lady Sweetheart but i think you are a bit late to visit Somalian children…I hope you can find some time to spread your  impressions from the black continent to the rest of the sleeping ‘’beauty world’…

Now…let’s be aware of the dark side of the moon and do something to make ourselves more human…!

 

Question: Which one is more fatal: being within the fight or staying out of the fight?

”You can’t be succesful, unless you steal…”

Remember that you are surrounded by the capitalist world and it wants you to ‘embrace the skin you are in…’

I  hate the calming effect of capitalism and destructive power of the money. Moreover my rage against human nature is pushing me to search more about  ‘why we are killing each other; why we worship the money this much and why we are in need of having much more than we really need. I can not stand the truth that ‘happy and carefree minority’ deliberately creates poverty, hunger, thirst, limitless insensitivity and political blindness. As we witness on the tv screens the political decisions based on repeated lies drag the communities in to an unreasonable consumption and  at the same time drag the poor majority in to the tsunami of death. Finally the modern world & its humanity (including happy minority) will welcome the natural disasters because of its greed and ambition.

Let me remind you something related to our future and generation next: We will produce hundreds of millions of weapons for the communities to kill each other by making war without needing any causes. We will produce much more drugs, pills, alcohol, tobacco and anti-depressants for our people by presenting them as a good solution of stress and our exhausting lives. We will waste our natural sources madly and unnecessarily just like digging our own graves. We will make up new  and creative lies and excuses to overturn the leaders & presidents when  they don’t agree with our current policies. We deliberately destroy the nature all together with food chain which will turn our lives in to the hell.

As the photographer Walker Evans said years ago: The structures which have been rising up vertically for years, symbolize the merciless and cruel power of capitalism and the system assimilates the cities & life styles into itself with its entire advancement and brutality…

In every land there is death and decay, you can easily see suffering crowds and you can easily be accustomed to be unconcerned as long as you do not spread your ideas to the rest of the world. (Taking an action would be asset but taking the risk of being killed would be your self sacrifice.) Happy minority does not tend to comprehend the others’ miserable lives and we will all be exposed  to the same disasters unless we stop consuming and destroying everything around us like bloodthirsty vampires.

We will pay them all forward as long as we live in this new world order. But my question is how far we can go with this wild system which supports apathetic and selfish determined consumption and inequality with the conclusion of millions dying each year from poverty and deprivation of standard goods such as home, food, safe water sources, home etc…

Let’s think about the system which transforms each one of us in to ‘Frankenstein and which will destroy itself in the near future.

LISTENING FROM A DUMB, TELLING TO A DEAF AND SHOWING TO A BLIND!

In Afasia's corner... on June 28, 2011 at 12:30 pm

BETWEEN 2 CENTURIES, NOTHING CHANGED!

Due to the global warming the weather is changing in all Europe and the conditions of civil war between radical groups making the situation even worst. There are people killing each other between villages with guns provided by big powers like Israel, Libya and Iran. Today, 1,340 people more have fled to France from Spain and Portugal. Total 560.100 people have arrived to the refuges and %80 is women and children. Most of them are (children and women) having really hard situations on the way while moving like rape and violence. People instead of burying their relatives death bodies, they do keep in pieces and eat to stay alive against this hard conditions. African pharmaceutical industry tries the new medicines on Spanish and British people before releasing in market. Slavery is legal again and many Arabic and African can have 1 or more slaves as hard worker at their home/work places. Some are just bought to be burned for fun or fascist reasons and buying a white man does not cost too much. Some white families are selling their children to make some money as they cannot take care of their child.

Yes, that terrible story (which is happening right now in Somalia and they flee to Kenya) may convert into reality just in some years and European Nations happy days may end really bad and involuntarily. Europe tries helping each other to keep economical situation as up as possible but each day another country appears with similar problematic conditions. Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Spain which is next? Who knows? You will say that seems far to reach that extreme limits in Europe! I don’t think so. Petrol’s last 10 years. Water, do anyone know about the water resources. If the climate changes we have no idea how to survive without liquid like in Africa. And the pirate attacks in Somalia just were a start of crossing the limits of hunger and they were only showing that they also want a piece of sweet cake which we were benefiting since over centuries from their bloody tears, mines, fuel etc. etc. They just showed up the head. Do you think a person who has nothing to lose apart from his life would consider yours? Or let’s better say, would consider or fear from anything if he is about to die because of hunger? How we become that selfish after years and years. How can’t we see the truth which those countries all were under British, French or Italian mandate and due to this fact they could not increase their economy independently. Doesn’t we debt to those people there dying in hunger?

Let’s take a look when first British Naval arrived to Somali’s beaches. 1884! Yes, you see it correctly. 1 8 8 4. 127 exact years before they have reached Somali and stayed there with French and Italian Fascism until July 1960 the independence of Republic of Somali which has never took place. Tragicomically they have shared the country as British Somali, French Somali and Italian Somali for only not to fight between them and share everything in civilized conditions.

Yes, we civilized are the ones who create world’s bigger problem -HUNGER-. Shame for us to let a child dies in hunger front of our eyes.

And just before ending, can someone tell me which is correct? Make them our slaves or let them die in hunger? I can hear you saying any. You are right! Just look around and find a rich country after long European colonization. I believe it’s time to pay back what we have stolen from them or at least don’t let them die in hunger.

LISTEN A COUNTRY’S ROUMBLING IN HUNGER, OPEN YOUR EYES!

Thanks and Best Regards
