  1. The solution stares us all in the face. European Union countries started off fighting each other. When they realized they are one, and together they get whatever they want, even countries that were seen as enemy (Nazi) sit today at the same table and are included in the pact to protect each others’ interests.

    An education that aims teaching the whole African communities wherever they live that they are one and same, that mobilized under one leadership, their numbers can facilitate the fight against exploitation, is the remedy to this never ending nightmare.
