Much of the geographic and ethnic divisions currently seen in Kenya were established and encouraged during British colonialism. The Kenyan people have sued the British government for human rights abuses commited by their forces. Soldiers who had fought loyally for Britain during World War 2 came back to find white Britsh immigrants living on their fertile land while harassing local women.When Kenyan people fought for their independence, as they were'nt allowed to vote, the British invaders used: Torture Detention camps for up to 70,000 people Castration and blinding Fatal whipping Rape by British soldiers Rape with bottles of hot water The British Army also used Northern Kenya for military exercises. As a result of leaving unexploded munitions behind, hundreds of Maasai...
In October 1952 the British government declared a State of Emergency in Kenya. Its object: the defeat of "Mau Mau." In the war that followed, fewer than 40 of Kenya’s 40,000 white settlers were killed while more than 15,000 Africans lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands more were arrested and subjected to a humiliating and often brutal process of "rehabilitation." But what was Mau Mau? A movement based, according to the British Colonial Secretary, on a "perverted nationalism and a sort of nostalgia for barbarism"? Or the Land Freedom Army, an organized political and military response to repression and armed aggression? Using newsreel and previously inaccessible archive footage, and drawing on interviews with participants on both sides, Mau Mau examines the myth and the reality of Afr...
The origin of the term Mau Mau is uncertain. According to some members of Mau Mau, they never referred to themselves as such, instead preferring the military title Kenya Land and Freedom Army (KLFA). Some publications, such as Fred Majdalany's State of Emergency: The Full Story of Mau Mau, claim it was an anagram of Uma Uma (which means "get out get out") and was a military codeword based on a secret language-game Kikuyu boys used to play at the time of their circumcision. Majdalany goes on to state that the British simply used the name as a label for the Kikuyu ethnic community without assigning any specific definition. As the movement progressed, a Swahili backronym was adopted: "Mzungu Aende Ulaya, Mwafrika Apate Uhuru" meaning "Let the foreigner go back abroad, let the African regain i...

Opposition against British colonial rule in Kenya culminated in the Mau Mau uprising, which began in 1952. The political changes that took place after independence in 1963 had important consequences for Asians living there. Film clips taken from Mau Mau, showing Kenya during the Mau Mau uprising, made circa 1954. The British commentary encapsulates colonial attitudes of the time. This clip is taken from the Imperial War Museum's new online exhibition - 'Through My Eyes: Stories of conflict, belonging and identity.' The site can be accessed on www.throughmyeyes.org.uk.

CON CHI FUGGE Chi scappa perché c’è una guerra chi gli hanno preso la sua terra chi si è salvato da un inferno finendo in un C.I.E. moderno Non si vive non si vive così Che faresti se vivessi così? Per la gente di Mali Siria Eritrea Nigeria Senegal io griderò che con chi fugge io starò! Chi sarà sempre uno straniero chi sogna un lavoro vero chi cerca cibo e trova bombe e chi si è perso tra le onde Non si vive non si vive così che faresti se vivessi così? Per la gente di Gambia Palestina Bangladesh Egitto Libia urlerò che con chi fugge io starò! Chi comanda ha messo un muro un confine immaginario si è spartito questa Terra l’esodo è planetario Attraverso i 7 mari c’è una schiavitù moderna gli interessi dei potenti e sangue sopra i continenti ma con chi fugge io starò

MBUGUA KABA FOOTAGE Dedan Kimathi Waciuri (October 31, 1920 - February 18, 1957) was a Kenyan rebel leader who fought against British colonization in Kenya in the 1950s. He was convicted and executed by the British colonial government. The British colonial government that ruled Kenya at the time considered him a terrorist, but many Kikuyu and other Kenyans viewed him as a freedom fighter of the Mau Mau Uprising. Early life - Kimathi was born in Thenge Village Tetu division, Nyeri District. At the age of fifteen, he joined the local primary school, Karuna-ini, where he perfected his English skills. He would later use those language skills to write extensively before and during the uprising. He was a Debate Club member in his school. He was deeply religious and carried a Bible regularly. H...

Put your old ladies back into bed
Your old men back into their graves
Cover their ears so they can't hear us sing
Cover their eyes so that can't see us play
Get out of the way
Let the people play
We're gonna get down on you
Come alive all over you
Dancin' down into your town
Tyrannosaurus Rex was destroyed before
By a furry little ball that crawled along
The primeval jungle floor
And he stole the eggs of the dinosaur
CLOSE YOUR EYES & CREATE THE SOUND
OPEN YOUR HANDS & REBUILD THE GROUND
We are egg snatchers -
flashin' sunshine children
You unlease the dogs
of a grade-B movie star governor's war
While you sit in the dark -
insane with the fear of dying
We'll ball in your parks
- insane with the flash of living
I AM ALIVE
I AM HUMAN
I WILL BE ALIVE AGAIN
So drop your fuckin' bombs
Burn your demon babies
I WILL BE AGAIN -
The rabid lover-feelin' the starch in your grin
Callin' for acid cocaine and grass
And receiving your homemade gin
PUSH THE BUTTON
PULL THE SWITCH
CUT THE BEAM
C'MON MAKE IT MARCH
Sign me up as a diplomat - my only office is the park
You need to be out before you come in
And after you come you go
In the midst of Yang is a smaller part of Yin
And when it happens you know -
THE DAWN COMES
Whatever you think of us is totally irrelevant
Both to us now and to you
We are the present
We are the future
You are the past
Pay your dues and get outta the way
'Cause we're not the way you used to be
When you were very young
We're something new
We don't quite know what it is
Or particularly care
We just do it - You gotta do it
Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin'
Open your eyes there's a new world today
Open your hearts people are lovin'
Open it all we're here to stay
