After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

History is made in #SierraLeone this week as an English court will for the first time sit outside the UK. The High Court is hearing a case of alleged human rights abuses by African Minerals Ltd against villagers and workers in the northern Tonkolili District. The allegations include killing, rape, false imprisonment and land-grab. The court sits at the Radisson Hotel in Freetown because many of the witnesses could not get a visa to be able to travel to the UK to testify.

This is not looking too good! It seems to be all coming together and not accidentally either the leaked IMF allegations,  and now the trial in Tonkolili  just a month before election day. What else is in the pipeline?
