What Happened on Berlin Conference…???
In 1884 G.c the leaders of fourteen European countries and the United States came together to discuss control of Africa’s resources.
Known as The Berlin Conference, they sought to discuss the partitioning of Africa, establishing rules to amicably divide resources among the Western countries at the expense of the African people.
Of these fourteen nations at the Berlin Conference, France, Germany, Great Britain, and Portugal were the major players. Notably missing were any representatives from Africa.
One of the tasks of this conference was for each European country that claimed possession over a part of Africa to bring “civilization,” in the form of Christianity, as well as trade.
Once again in 21st century history is about to repeat itself in the form of “Violation of human right, Democracy and aid”
