Liberia National Unification Day

This annual observance in Liberia draws attention to the animosity between the Americo-Liberian elite and the indigenous majority. Under the leadership of President William V. S. Tubman, who led from 1944 to 1971, the divide between these two groups was diminished. Tubman introduced the National Unification Policy, which featured among other things an extension of the vote to women and the country's indigenous people. The anniversary emerged as a means to draw support for the policy. The day reminds Liberians to remember what they hold in common and not to dwell on how they diverge. More...

One of the most democratic Liberian president was William Tolbert. He wanted political independence for his country. He abandoned his predecessor's servile pro-west policy and tried to became non aligned through establishing diplomatic relations with the USSR, china and cuba in 70s.

As a Baptist Minister he stood firmly against injustice everywhere. He would always speak against apartheid in South Africa and in favor of recognizing the national rights of the Palestinian people. He severed ties with Israel during the Yom Kippur War. So like Nelson Mandela and the reverend Desmond Tutu he was labelled terrorist by USA and started to plot against him. He was killed by the renegade Sergeant Samuel Doe, who immediately became an American blue eyed despite his horrific manslaughter capabilities. His government received billions of dollars during 80s from the U.S. Furthermore, Liberia became the largest African base of CIA and when this happens, rest assured that anarchy and brutalities will soon visit the land. They did and did in the most evil ways.

Good analysis. ... the Americans/the British/the Russians,etc think they are "gods/goddesses" on this Earth... sick lot all over legalizing American killing, pornography, marijuana, spending zillions of dollars on addiction rehabs, and destructive military...

After almost two decades of war, Liberia – a lush, rain forested country draped across West Africa’s southern flank – seems at last to have found some breathing room. With Africa’s first woman president at the helm, the peace, while still fragile, is holding and Liberians have thrown themselves with gusto into the work of rebuilding their shattered land.

If Liberia does stabilize and open up for travel, it will offer intrepid adventurers a fascinating glimpse into what was previously a wonderfully hospitable and fascinatingly enigmatic society. Liberia’s artistic traditions – especially carved masks, dance and storytelling – rivaled those of anywhere on the continent, and traditional culture was strong.

This was especially true in the country’s interior, where secret initiation societies played a central role in growing up, and today still serve as important repositories of traditional knowledge and life skills. For now though, most of this cultural wealth remains inaccessible to visitors, and independent travel outside of the country's capital Monrovia is not considered safe.

Think Democracy, democracy was the most successful political idea of the 20th century, but mostly what can be done to revive it?
