The Socialist Forum of Ghana (SFG) is following current developments in La Cote d’Ivoire, especially the capture of President Laurent Gbagbo, by French Special Forces with keen interest.

In our view, the action of the French Special Forces, in capturing the President of a sovereign state and handing him over to rebel forces is a flagrant violation of international law and a blatant attempt to impose the wishes of the French ruling elite on the Ivorian people.

Undoubtedly, France has become an occupying power in La Cote d’Ivoire and it must be held fully responsible for the protection of the life of Laurent Gbagbo and all the Ivorian people irrespective of their political, ethnic or social affiliation or background.

The brazen actions of France in La Cote d’Ivoire and Libya can only be part of the grand design to recolonise Africa.

We urge all progressive forces and African patriots to join the demonstration against foreign interference in Accra scheduled for tomorrow, April 12, 2011. The demonstration organised by the Coalition Against Foreign Intervention in Africa (CAFIA) will start from the Kwame Nkrumah Circle at 7:30 a.m.

JOIN THE DEMONSTRATION
