This anti-slavery monument facing the Gambia river is situated in Albreda / Juffureh, a village, that is connected to Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African, captured as an adolescent and sold into slavery in the United States.

The novel "Roots" follows his life and the lives of his descendants in the U.S. down to the author Alex Haley. The novel was followed by a hugely popular television adaptation.

Jadawati, a weaver, working on a 24 feet carpet which will take her nearly 40 days to complete.

 

As a bonded-labourer, she must fetch raw material from her ‘contractor’, finish and deliver the carpet to him.

 

The contractor pays her about 60 rupees a day(<$1), a rate nearly half the minimum wages entitled to her as per the law.

 

The carpet that might sell for 25,000 rupees (<$400) or above will have earned Jadawati less than 2,500.

Nantes, France’s largest slave port. Between the 15th and 19th centuries, numerous European ports such as Liverpool, London, Bristol, Nantes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Amsterdam and Lisbon were involved in the slave trade. During the 18th century, Nantes became France’s largest slave port. Shipowners, bankers, industrialists, traders, shopkeepers, shipbuilders and sailors all benefited to varying degrees from the trade.

 

Forgotten for a long time. In 1848, after a drawn-out battle and thanks in no small part to the campaign led by Victor Schœlcher, the abolition of slavery was voted. Nantes moved on, but between cynicism and a guilty conscience, a cloak of silence fell over the subject and it was forgotten.

 

It was not until the 1990s that the people of Nantes, along with the town council, actively sought to face up to their history. In 1992, with more than 400,000 visitors, the exhibition « Les Anneaux de la Mémoire » facilitated an understanding and analysis of these historical events.

 

Nantes comes to terms with its memories and begins new struggles for today and the future.Since, Nantes has continued to move along the path of these new-found memories. Over twenty years, this path has been punctuated with local and international projects: cooperation and twinning with African and South-American towns, support for associations, organisation of the World Forum on Human Rights, opening of rooms dedicated to the slave trade at the Nantes History Museum, opening of the Institute for Advanced Studies with its original approach to North-South relations, etc. Finally, in 2012, the building of a Memorial in homage to all those who fought in the past, fight today and will fight in the future against slavery marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another: that of the present and future.

      

Mémorial de l'Abolition de l'esclavage

Lors du 150e anniversaire de l’abolition de l’esclavage en 1998, le Conseil municipal de Nantes adopte le principe d’édifier un monument commémoratif sur le quai de la Fosse. Par un acte politique fort, la Ville entend assumer son passé et donner une forme à la mémoire, inscrite dans l’espace public.

Conçu par l’artiste Krzysztof Wodiczko et l’architecte Julian Bonder, il marque symboliquement une période de plus de vingt-cinq ans d’action publique pour développer la connaissance et la reconnaissance du passé négrier nantais. Au-delà de la mémoire des victimes de la traite atlantique, il s’agit de rendre hommage aux luttes contre les traites et les esclavages dans le monde.

Aujourd’hui, l’Organisation des Nations Unies et l’Organisation Internationale du Travail estiment que l’esclavage contemporain et le travail forcé concernent au moins 200 à 250 millions de personnes, dont une grande part d’enfants.

Implanté sur et sous le quai de la Fosse, le Mémorial de l’abolition de l’esclavage n’a pas pour vocation d’expliquer et d’exposer l’histoire, mais de se souvenir, d’alerter et de transmettre un message universel.

Un parcours urbain composé de 11 panneaux d’information relie symboliquement le Mémorial, monument commémoratif, au musée d’histoire de Nantes, situé au Château des ducs de Bretagne. Le Mémorial est implanté à proximité immédiate de sites et de monuments en relation avec le passé négrier nantais. Ces panneaux permettent aux lecteurs de décrypter les traces de ce qui fut une activité majeure de Nantes aux 18e et 19e siècles. Sont ainsi mis en valeur et analysés les hôtels d’armateurs négriers, le quai d’où partaient les navires négriers vers l’Afrique et les Antilles, des lieux symboliques comme la passerelle Schoelcher ou économiques comme la Bourse…

  

Work has been work. How to deal with a sentence of slavery in society. At times I sit at my desk wondering what the hell am I doing. Sadly I think consumerism is given as a faux antidote to keep the wheel spinning. A fleeting moment, until the next product or model is released, planned obsolence. A mere cycle, work, buy, work, buy. But who am I to talk. I am saving up for a damn Leica. 2015.

Andrea Dworkin, Pornography - Men Possessing Women

Of all the social institution we are born into, directed by and conditioned upon, there seems to be no system as taken for granted and misunderstood as the monetary system.

It is one of the most unquestioned faiths there is.

 

“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.”

~John Adams

 

“The bold efforts the present bank has made to control the government are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution, or the establishment of another like it.”

~ Pres. Andrew Jackson

 

“[…] Slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of laborers, while the European plan […] is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. This can be done, by controlling the money. [...] ”

~The Hazard Circular

 

It is the fear of losing assets, coupled with the struggle to keep up with the perpetual debt and inflation inherent in the system, compounded by the inescapable scarcity within the money supply itself, created by the interest that can never be repaid, that keeps the wage slave in line – running on the hamster wheel with millions of others.

In effect, powering an empire that truly benefits only the elite at the top of the pyramid. For at the end of the day, whom are you really working for? THE BANKS! Money is created in a bank and ends up in a bank. They are the true masters, along with the corporations and the governments they support.

 

Physical slavery requires people to be housed and fed. Economic slavery on the other hand requires people to feed and house themselves.

It is one of the most ingenious scams for social manipulation ever created and at its core it is an invisible war against the population.

 

We have to wake up and act before it is too late. Great men like John Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy knew about the corrupt intention behind the system. Some succeeded in shutting it down, only to see it resurface again under new corruptible leaders, others died, trying in vain to cut it's power cord.

 

It's time to get mad...

 

As long as the Federal Reserve exists, perpetual debt is guaranteed!

 

Please, watch Zeitgeist. Unless you are a member of the Rothschilds :)

Video: Eric Foner introduces his book The Fiery Trial (YouTube)

 

In this landmark work of deep scholarship and insight, Eric Foner gives us the definitive history of Lincoln and the end of slavery in America. Foner begins with Lincoln's youth in Indiana and Illinois and follows the trajectory of his career across an increasingly tense and shifting political terrain from Illinois to Washington, D.C. Although “naturally anti-slavery” for as long as he can remember, Lincoln scrupulously holds to the position that the Constitution protects the institution in the original slave states. But the political landscape is transformed in 1854 when the Kansas-Nebraska Act makes the expansion of slavery a national issue.

 

A man of considered words and deliberate actions, Lincoln navigates the dynamic politics deftly, taking measured steps, often along a path forged by abolitionists and radicals in his party. Lincoln rises to leadership in the new Republican Party by calibrating his politics to the broadest possible antislavery coalition. As president of a divided nation and commander in chief at war, displaying a similar compound of pragmatism and principle, Lincoln finally embraces what he calls the Civil War's “fundamental and astounding” result: the immediate, uncompensated abolition of slavery and recognition of blacks as American citizens.

 

Foner's Lincoln emerges as a leader, one whose greatness lies in his capacity for moral and political growth through real engagement with allies and critics alike. This powerful work will transform our understanding of the nation's greatest president and the issue that mattered most. MORE
