The Labour Party of Harold Wilson who was a major shareholder of Shell BP came and asked Ojukwu for access to Biafran Oilfields and was told no; the rest is history.

Biafra Aftermath.

In 1970 we were told it was a "No victor/No vanquished" Declaration. We put down our arms and left the trenches; with mixed feelings of excitement, nervousness, and fear. We headed back to our homes only to be told they were all classed as "Abandoned Properties" and had been shared as spoils of war. We then headed to our Banks to withdraw savings and were told the balance was 20 Pounds Sterling regardless of the balance before war; whether hundreds, thousands, millions, or billions. We then went to our previous employers and were all turned away. Due to the government enactment known as "Indigenisation Policy" all companies formerly owned by Biafrans were put up for sale and purchased by them and Niggerians. Whilst still coming to terms with the aforementioned in came the "Quota System Policy", "Exclusive Economic Lists", "Federal Character", "ELDS States" and the list goes on dead and buried from all angles! However like seeds they realised not the stupidity of merely burying us and now we have germinated, bloomed, and began spreading new seeds because we are Igbo's Children of the Sun!

Nanny of the Maroons — Badass of the Week


Wow, another impressive story!
The Nanny of the Maroons was a semi-mythological guerilla warrior grandma and Obeah mystic priestess who led an armed revolt against the British Empire that raged through the mountains and jungles of Jamaica for nearly two decades. She set up an intricate intelligence, espionage, and communications network that infiltrated the entirety of British operations on the island, liberated more than a thousand slaves from sugarcane plantations across the colony, established heavily-fortified defenses around several impenetrable settlements, and served as leader to a self-sustaining settlement that produced music, art, and preserved the traditions of her people.

And, perhaps most improbably for those of you who have read about guerilla warriors on this site before, her story doesn't end with her head impaled on a pike outside the British governor's office.

To cut or not to cut: The case of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales | Result In Brief | CORDIS | European Commission

How or whether to censor literature is an age-old question. Using medieval and early modern copies of The Canterbury Tales, an EU-funded project provides a new perspective on censorship.
“Some manuscripts leave out objectionable passages or replace objectionable words. Others elaborate on famous passages, such as the end of The Merchant’s Tale, where two characters have a sexual encounter in a pear tree,”
Hah!

Why the volcano erupting in the Caribbean has such a deadly reputation

Before European colonists arrived in the early 1700s, the Indigenous population dwelled along the coast, away from the danger of any potential eruptions. But after becoming a British colony in the 1760s, the island’s enslaved population was forced to live and work in the volcano’s shadow. Many enslaved people died after an eruption in 1812, and many of their descendants perished when a 1902-03 eruption devastated a huge swath of the island.

Robert Maynard — Badass of the Week

[...] The guy who answered the call was a hardened naval officer named Robert Maynard. Not much is known about him, which is kind of weird because this is the dude who killed the most famous pirate ever. We know he was British, born in England, and that he lived in Virginia back when Virginians were also technically Brits. By 1707 he was a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, meaning that he would have had at least 11 years of experience in the King's fleet by 1718 – and probably significantly more, since you typically don’t just get made Lieutenant the same day you sign up for the Navy. He was serving in Virginia by 1718 aboard the 42-gun Frigate HMS Pearl, one of only two warships assigned to defend the colony’s coastline from pirates, shark attacks, and the French.
I love this guy's blog, as always very well written. This time it's about the guy who killed Blackbeard.

The #GreatGreenWall is Africa's flagship initiative to combat the increasing #desertification. Led by the African Union, the initiative aims to transform the lives of millions of people by creating a mosaic of green and productive landscapes across North Africa. (Wikipedia)

Follow this account to read about the #history, #ambition, #challenges and #results of the GGW. I will also post #news articles, #ForestFacts, describe the wall's #partners and the Great Green Wall #film.

I'm a private person doing this in my spare time, but if this account gets lots of followers I'll contact the people behind the GGW and ask if I can join their social media team and maintain an official account.

Comment from source - IPOB Rapture Media.

If not for a Portuguese man that kept receipts, we would never had known that Igbo men built Pyramids in Enugwu.

If not for some of their books and the clues they left behind, we would not have been able to figure out a lot of things about an ancient civilization like ours with dates.

We have always been lazy at passing stories to generations, and we barely write anything down for future.

I'm happy that we are learning and doing few things in that regard. I encourage us to try our best and keep the truth about events instead of looking for sensational stuffs.

Regardless of how badly you might think the white man treated us, that was part of the good things they did for us

Resurrect James Connolly and give him a battlemech
Connolly was born in the Cowgate area of Edinburgh, Scotland, to Irish parents. He left school for working life at the age of 11. He also took a role in Scottish and American politics. He was a member of the Industrial Workers of the World and founder of the Irish Socialist Republican Party. With James Larkin, he was centrally involved in the Dublin lock-out of 1913, as a result of which the two men formed the Irish Citizen Army (ICA) that year. He opposed British rule in Ireland, and was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising of 1916.
