【禁聞】非洲世紀饑荒的最猛之“人禍”

FacebookPrintFont Size簡體

【新唐人2011年8月1日訊】非洲正飽受大規模饑荒,災情嚴重的肯尼亞、索馬里和埃塞俄比亞形成了“死亡三角”,饑荒區還在不斷擴大,情況也越來越嚴峻。多家媒體和政壇重量級人物指出,非洲最大的貿易合作夥伴——中共當局是造成這場非洲饑荒的主要“人禍”之一。請看報導。

非洲之角地區目前遭遇近六十年最嚴重乾旱,導致糧食危機。目前有大約1200萬人陷入了饑饉災難。7月29號,聯合國人道事務協調廳在提交給援助國的報告中說:“索瑪利亞南部的危機,預計將持續惡化到今年年底,南部全境將淪為饑荒區。”聯合國兒童基金會(UNICEF)警告,索馬里南部的125萬兒童亟需維生支援。

救援組織說,與「基地組織」有關聯的恐怖組織「伊斯蘭青年黨」控制著索馬里受災最嚴重地區,阻止救援人員為索馬里南部饑荒區內的200多萬難民提供援助。並且否認當地發生饑荒,認為國際援助是政治干涉。2009年和2010年初「伊斯蘭青年黨」也曾將救援機構趕出過索馬里。

總部位於台灣的《玉山週報》在早些時候曾發表題為“中國霸權襲非洲 被批新殖民主義”的文章指出,非洲一些國家和地區衝突不斷,而中國不顧國際社會的反對,長期向非洲出售軍火,造成中國製的廉價武器充斥於非洲各地,更加助長了非洲的軍事衝突。

對於這場本世紀最嚴重的非洲饑荒,《法蘭克福評論報》和《明鏡週刊》7月28號援引德國聯邦政府非洲事務專員古恩特•努克的話指出,“很明顯,非洲這次災害也是人禍”。努克認為,中國“為使相關國家生產用於出口的糧食而剝奪小農戶的土地,等於剝奪了他們的生存基礎,導致非洲出現巨大的社會衝突”。

中共近年來投入數十億,增加在非洲的投資和貿易,非洲的石油、鐵和銅等自然資源被中共買走,換回汽車或者服裝、鞋子。2010年中共與非洲之間的貿易額達到1200億美元,已經超過美國成為非洲最大的交易夥伴。但是同時,廉價的民生消費用品在非洲市場的傾銷,也嚴重打擊了非洲國家脆弱的生產能力與產業發展。

為了擴大中共在非洲的政治和經濟影響力,中共還提供巨額貸款,拉攏非洲國家作為其在聯合國的“大票倉”。有傳言說,在尚比亞,中共用金錢支持了總統班達爭取連任的競選。

另外,中共也在非洲加緊了系統的思想滲透和控制,如在非洲開辦21所「孔子學院」。對此,加拿大情報局前任官員朱諾•凱蘇雅指出:"籌辦孔子學院並不是出於慈善理念,而是中共戰略的一部分,與中共間諜部門有關聯的機構為其提供資金。

而對於非洲一些獨裁國家的行徑,中共不僅置若罔聞,反而還以「不干涉內政」回應國際社會的強烈反對,持續提供非洲獨裁政權軍火,更為非洲獨裁國家訓練新聞與網路監控方面的人員,鉗制非洲人民的民主和自由。比如,被西方社會施以武器禁運的獨裁國家辛巴威與蘇丹等,他們都是中國製武器的客戶。

美國國務卿希拉里‧克林頓6月11號,在訪問非洲國家尚比亞(Zambia)首都路沙卡(Lusaka)時,批評中共在非洲搞「新殖民主義」,只想榨取非洲的天然資源,與統治者做交易,卻不為這個大陸造福。希拉里還在前一天,敦促要謹慎對待中共在非洲的大規模投資和商業利益,以防止非洲人民遭到剝削。

2011年7月,英國首相卡梅倫出訪非洲時,也強烈批評中共企圖在全球擴展影響力,警告當地小心中共的“獨裁資本主義”,稱這種做法從長遠角度看是不可持續的。

卡梅倫並指出,中共在新一輪“瓜分非洲”中發揮主要作用,西方國家對此越來越警惕。

Africa’s Worst Famine in a Century

African is suffering from a large-scale famine
that is spreading at an alarming rate.
However, the hardest hit countries are
Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia.
Many renowned media and political figures are blaming China,
Africa’s biggest trading partner, for the famine.

Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia are suffering from
the worst drought in 60 years and a severe shortage of food.
About 12 million people are in urgent need of food.

On July 29, The U.N. Office for the Coordination of
Humanitarian Affairs reported,
“The famine in southern Somalia will continue until the end
of this year, with all areas in the south slipping into famine.”
UNICEP warned, “About 1.25 million children
in southern Somalia will require food aid.”

Relief organizations said, the Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group,
the Islamic Youth Party, is controlling the worst affected areas
in Somalia and preventing rescue workers from
providing help to 2 million refugees in the area.
The Islamic Youth Party claim that there is no famine
and that international aid is causing political interference.
In 2009 and early 2010,
it forced aid agencies out of Somalia.

Headquartered in Taiwan,
Formosa Media published the article,
“Chinese Hegemony Attacks Africa,
the Neo-Colonialism.”
The article pointed out that there are many conflicts
among some African countries and areas.
However, despite opposition from the international community,
China has persisted in exporting cheap Chinese weapons
into Africa, causing military conflicts in Africa.

Regarding this century’s worst famine in Africa, on July 28,
Frankfurter Rundschau and Der Spiegel quoted
German Federal Government Commissioner, Guenter Nooke,
as saying that the famine in Africa is clearly of human origins.
Nooke said that China deprived small famers of their land,
in order to export food to related countries.
This is equivalent to depriving the farmers of survival base,
causing serious social conflicts in Africa.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has invested
hundreds of millions of dollars in Africa, in recent years.
Natural resources such as oil, iron, and copper
are shipped out of Africa by the CCP.
They are exchanged for cars, clothing and shoes.
In 2010, trading between China and Africa reached $120 billion.
China surpassed the United States to become
Africa’s largest trading partner.
However, the low-cost consumer goods coming into
the African market has had serious consequences.
Africa’s fragile production capacity
and industrial development are badly hit.

To expand its political and economic influence in Africa,
the CCP also provides large loans to African nations.
It encourages them to back China
in different U.N. voting sessions.
Some people speculate that the CCP provided financial support
to President Banda to help him win the election in Zambia.

In addition, the CCP also tightened
ideological infiltration and control in Africa.
For example, it has opened 21 Confucius Institutes in Africa.

In regard to this, Former Canadian intelligence official
Michel Juneau-Katsuya said,
opening Confucius Institute is not due to good will,
rather it is one of the CCP tactics.
Affiliations of the CCP spy agencies provide its funding.

The CCP not only ignores some dictatorships in Africa,
but also takes a not-interfering-with-politics stand point.
It persists in providing weapons to African dictatorships.

Moreover, it provides training to network monitoring personnel,
suppressing the African people’s freedom.
For example, dictatorships Zimbabwe and Sudan
are imposed arms embargos by Western countries.
However, both are all customers of Chinese made firearms.

On June 11, on her visit to Lusaka, Zambia,

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized
The CCP for carrying on neo-colonialism in Africa.
She said the CCP extracts Africa’s natural resources,
makes deals with ruling powers, without benefitting Africa.
Hilary also warned against the CCP’s large-scale investments
in Africa, to prevent the African people from being exploited.

In July 2011, on his visit to Africa, British P.M. Cameron
also criticized the CCP for trying to expand influence globally.
He warned about the CCP’s authoritarian capitalism,
calling it unsustainable in the long term.

Cameron also pointed out that the CCP played a major role
in another round of dividing Africa,
and Western countries are taking more caution.
