Title: Guinea: Unstoppable exodus
Post by: Ayinde on April 26, 2004, 08:42:37 PM
BBC News Online's Joseph Winter is tracing the route of an African migrant, Mamadou Saliou "Billy" Diallo, who made it to Europe after a long and dangerous journey across the Sahara. Here, in the first of five articles, he visits Billy's home region of Fouta Djalon, Guinea, which has seen many of its men leave for the West.

One comment:

"Is it a crime when people migrate? British people migrate to America, Australia, and the Middle East etc. The Irish migrate to UK and USA. What's the matter with that? Europeans arbitrarily created borders in their hunger for foreign lands. They carved up Africa, raped her and shared the spoils. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. What's the crime in that? As long as the West is industrialising at the expense of Third World countries, migration to the West will never cease. Who wants to live in utter poverty?"
