Oscar Rickett writes in Africa is a Country:

Earlier this year I flew to the Algerian military town of Tindouf, as part of a Vice News crew, to help make a documentary and write an article about the struggle for an independent Western Sahara. Tindouf sits outside a network of five camps housing Sahrawi refugees from the war between Morocco and Polisario, the Sahrawi liberation movement fighting for a referendum in the region. The war lasted from 1975 - when Spain, with Franco on his death bed, ceded one of Africa's last colonies, the Spanish Sahara, to Morocco and Mauritania - to 1991, when the UN brokered a cease fire, confidently and erroneously predicting that they would bring about a referendum within six months.

Published by Amma Birago:

... People's movements in Africa have always lacked their own, i.e. African ideology...[and they] have generally taken the form of passive resistance, frequently lacked aggressive power. ... From that perspective it may well be that nowhere is there more talk about change than in Africa. Yet, within Africa, few can really trigger change. Herein lies the great agony of Africa's popular sentiments.... To describe people's movements in Africa it is necessary to recognise their under-lying attitude, which is one of active waiting and active hope.... To outlive the repression, in its various forms, is to gain victory. Religious Movements and Politics in Sub-Saharan Africa - Terence O. Ranger.

For the past two months, the Enough Project has been counting down to mediators' 60 day deadline to establish a transitional government of national unity for South Sudan. However, instead of committing themselves to peace talks, South Sudan's leaders have done almost everything except sit down and make the tough concessions necessary to forge peace through negotiations. Now that the deadline has passed, a chorus of voices from across the globe have threatened South Sudan's leaders with punitive measures and targeted sanctions. The U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, U.K. Foreign Office and members of the U.N. Security Council who visited Juba on August 12th have all spoken out.
