Nowhere across Africa is the message that its people want a way out of what I call "the four Ds" - death, disease, disaster and despair - more resounding than among the continent's journalists.

In nation after nation, they are attempting to inform their people of their rights and encourage them to hold their governments accountable. For that, many of them are being held accountable in the most draconian ways.

All across the world now ordinary people are rising up against repressive regimes which rob from them the ability to live free lives and have true multi-party democracies. People who no longer wish to have their voices silenced by governments repressing dissent or alternate views with torture, imprisonment and blacklisting/ social isolation have begun to rise up across the world. The ugly response from the powerful elite has been clear for people across the globe to see. They wanted the people that sweep and sell fruit and cater to their needs to be kept quiet, knowing their place and that they should shut up and stay there, but people are saying they have had enough.

      They rose up in Tunisia and demanded an oppressive dictator and his cronies give in and allow real democracy to take root.  There ordinary people that never felt they had a voice found the courage to summon up their strength and try.  They found the will to press forward for the kind of nation they always felt they had a right to.  Repression, extremism and bigotry were not called for, but the demands were sounded for basic opportunities and the right to live free from oppression.

In Niger human rights organizations, trade unions, and opposition parties (including the Niger Party for Democracy and Socialism) are all supporting the coup. 10,000 people rallied in support on February 20th.

Meanwhile the US, France, UK, UN, and African Union all have been quick to condemn the coup.

Tandja did the bidding of U.S. imperialism. Meanwhile, according to the UN Development Program’s 2006 Human Development Index, Niger is the poorest country in the world. Sixty percent of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, life expectancy is only to 45-years old, and adult illiteracy is 71%.
