A New Republic of Chad

AFRICANThe Union and Council of Chadian Youth for Immediate and Radical Change in the Republic of Chad – A Revolution for Democracy in Africa

New York, May 2016:
The Chadian people of the USA and Africans of the diaspora are rallying on the 24th of June 2016 in front of the United Nations Organization at 405 East 42nd Street New York, NY.

The first reason why this is taken place: in Chad, the latest presidential elections were fraudulently bamboozled and we, the Chadian people are asking the president of the Republic of Chad to step down immediately.

That request’s a result of our continuous state of poverty, the Chadian government ineffectiveness in creating jobs for Chadians and the blatant use of corruption in all sectors of living. Many of the young people in Chad suffer from the issues that have resulted  from the current government’s mishandling of the wealth of the Chadian people. Amnesty International is also reporting the kidnapping of key individuals in Chad who have opposed the current regime:

“The situation is worrying. In our report we criticize the arbitrary arrests, illegal detentions and restrictions on freedom of expression that occur in Chad. Hundreds of people are arrested at regular intervals – they are arrested illegally – that is the problem! Freedom of expression has been eroded away – only recently there was a wave of arrests in which journalists and members of parliament were detained. These journalists can no longer practice their profession or make use of their right to free speech because they live in fear of being arrested again.”

Prior to that, Idriss Déby Itno (Chad’s president) was given the opportunity to use the multi millions of dollars that came as a result of Chad’s petroleum to build infrastructures and improve the socio-economic state of Chadian people (the first barrels were extracted in 2004) and since early 2000, nothing major has taken place. The 3rd why is we, African people are tired of dictatorships.
That manifestation is a result of our desperate need for a new mentality in Africains. Our actions today will bring about radical change in Africa if and only if we are united. We want our stand to be of a revolutionary nature hence, we are urging our sisters and brothers from not only Chad but Algeria, Benin, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia and all over the world to join us in this revolution.

We know that it will not take one day and for that reason, we are ready. Our request is as genuine and as urgent as it gets and this is the most recent why we (Chadians of the diaspora are manifesting): Idriss Deby Itno must step down in order for democracy to be a reality for the Republic of Chad.

Activist, Model, Poet/Writer, Soccer Player and an Entrepreneur at ENTREPRENEUR DE DEMAIN. I have to clarify that my focus from 2006 until 2012 was modeling and the Entertainment business. I never wanted to be an actor although I currently have two Wavers under my belt. I just "need" one more to go from being a Non Union to an Union (SAG) "actor" but {again} that was never my passion- acting! I (nonetheless) have [indeed] done a number of background acting works and gigs. My first work was for NBC and the first show I have ever worked on was 30 Rock. It was unbelievable being on stage with Aleck Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Tina Faye, LL Cool J, Wayne Brady (those last two were featured co-Stars); that was shot on 2/08/2007. I also did some background acting on Cashmere Mafia for ABC as of 9/2007, Ugly Betty from 2008-2010, Kings (2009), Royal Pains and the Good Wife (2010). It was great being an extra also in Films like: THE SMURFS (shot on June 2010) and NEW YEAR'S EVE (2011). As a Poet, I not only want to convey what I feel but {I want to} also express what you, the reader, feel. My inspiration is the loving grace of God (Jesus Christ), my country of birth, the Republic of Chad (Africa) and this World you and I live in. I also find it in Nature (her beauty), my Family and experience. But also in great writers and people like Leopold Sedar Senghor, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, e e cummings, Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Jacques Prevert (he is French, I am fluent in French). I also did model as mentioned, I have done a number of fashion shows (Couture Fashion Week in 2009 & 2010, Africa Fashion Week in 2009, etc) when speaking of my younger days. As a soccer player, I played every Sunday in an amateur league in Long Island City and Flushing, Queens. Actually, I went to Kansas City March of 2011 to try out professionally to be part of the Kansas City Sporting (a Major League Soccer) team. I did not make it, unfortunately. My sense of Activism is an everyday matter, from the way I carry myself to writing and promoting this beautiful Art called Poetry. In the future, it will involve concrete actions in developing not only Chad but Africa and promoting the values of Education. I am currently dabbling with the thought of becoming an accomplished lucrative poet (I write a lot!), becoming and a successful Entrepreneur. But yes, I would love to be connected to an understanding PUBLISHING COMPANY that will understand my creative drive and artistic vision so please reach out to me or refer my work if you can. As you read and as you saw, my real Passion is Poetry. I love writing poems. Recently, I have been performing it only because it was another way to reach out to People (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAKfUhJ4BJ8). I recently was asked to blog for the 2013 Men's Pageant for Face of Africa. (Here is the first article I wrote http://faceofafricausa.com/preparation/). "Home-less" was a poem written for a project that was helping people affected by hunger and poverty. It was for the The FWCares Project. http://flexwriterblogsonline.net/?p=231. My self-published book of poetry, entitled CLASSICS: DIPLOMATS IN EXILE (2007) is my #1 Achievement. I started writing at the age of 18. I am in need of sponsors and/or publishers. This vision God blessed me with is simple: We Will Change The World One Poem At A Time. NON STOP POETRY... It is within ALL of us! Just find it.
