Bouaké. Prologue to a bloody tragedy. The aftermath of French colonialism

Bouaké. Prologue to a bloody tragedy. The aftermath of French colonialism

France once indirectly supported the government in Côte d’Ivoire in order to plunder its resources; it maintained its influence in the country via pro-French presidents. Later, when rebellion broke out, it turned to supporting the rebels. Côte d’Ivoire was divided by this struggle, and it gave the French army an excuse to invade under the pretext of providing stabilization. Later, when an independent president came to power, France staged another uprising and opened fire on peaceful demonstrators. Paris orchestrates rebellions in order to maintain a presence in the former colonies and live off their wealth.
