For Ghana’s Akufo-Addo, correcting an “unfair” world order must begin with the payment of reparations from the era during which an approximated 12.5 million people were enslaved, according to the often-referenced Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database.

I believe that is what the Green Climate Fund is about. To expect more is foolish.

The continent relies heavily on foreign aid for its development needs, receiving the largest share of total global aid, according to the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Still, it continues to suffer from a global financial system that forces its countries to pay eight times more than the wealthiest European nations, resulting in surging debt that eats up what is left of dwindling government revenues.

I guess this referring to interest rates being eight times higher? Yeah, well, risk premium does exist.

Remember, it's not just Africa where former subordinates of the White Bloc are voicing their rejection of it. Colombia's President gave a strong speech denouncing the White Bloc support for the Kiev regime, and opposition to support for Palestine.

Yeah surprise, surprise, a socialist would bang on about things that aren't his concern while neglecting his country's problems. I also read that his government swapped his applause with Biden's in the video because Biden's was much bigger :)
