They become carriers, they often have to carry as much as 100 pounds of ammunition or wounded soldiers. used as messengers, spies and guards. European Impericalism in Africa. By 1875 European possessions in Africa consisted of some forts and trading posts along the coast and a few tiny colonies.
France acquired a huge empire in North and West Africa. Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Dahomey, Mali and other areas in West Africa came under French rule.
Although the French controlled the most territory, Britain ruled the greatest number of people.
By 1914 there were two independent countries left in Africa-Liberia and Ethiopia.
And even Ethiopia was taken over by Italy in 1935. (Italy controlled Ethiopia until 1942 when the British drove the Italians out.)
Colonialism in Africa Between 1880 and 1900, Africa went through a period of very fast colonisation by many of the major European powers.
By the late 1800’s, some of the African continent did belong to European countries.
One of the major influencing factors that pre-empted the colonisation of Africa was the fact that exploration of this “dark continent” had escalated. This actually began towards the end of the 18th century, as explorers set out on their quest to discover Timbuktu and the Niger River.
The end of the slave trade was another major influencing factor towards colonialism.
By 1880, Europe had jumped onto the bandwagon, and flocked into Africa in its droves. Liberia and Ethiopia remained locally governed and independent, but all other regions, states and countries were brought under European colonialism. This was the status quo until the 1940’s, when World War II ended. After years of warfare, Europe’s strength was drained and their power depleted. This gave Africa the chance to regain independence, slowly and steadily and mainly over the course of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Independence was usually granted peacefully, preserving much of the existing African population.

The climate was always hot and make the children more tired and dehydrated Sierra Leone: The nightmare legacy of Imperialism Sierra Leone is a very rich country in diamonds and bloodshed. The reason for the protracted civil war tearing Sierra Leone apart is the legacy of British colonialism and the struggle by the ruling cliques to rob the country's wealth. The population affects the war, the more the population increase the more people are going to be in the war.

And the reason why the Africans are carrying them, is because the Americans are saying that the Africans are there burden, and they have to take care of them and have to teach them how to be humane

This political cartoon shows that the Americans just want Africa for their gold. And they are carrying the African’s because they don’t believe that the Africans are civilized. france contoled a huge part of north and west africa Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Dahomey, Mali and other areas in West under French rule.. Britain's colonies were scattered throughout Africa Gambia, Sierra Leone, Gold Coast, Nigeria, South Africa, Rhodesia, Uganda, Kenya, Egypt,and sudan Somaliland and Libya. Southwest Africa, Tanganyika, Togoland and Cameroon were ruled by Germany. Ethiopia was taken over by Italy Children are killed or maimed, made orphans, abducted, deprived of education and health care, and left with deep emotional scars and trauma. They are recruited and used as child soldiers, forced to give expression of hatred towards adults. taken from their homes, displaced children become very vulnerable. Girls face additional risks, particularly sexual violence and exploitation. All of these are categories of children victims of armed conflict. This picture ties into imperalism because, even though it is saying the G8 is taking away africa's debt. Africa still has political oppression which ties to unstable governments. And those unstable governments tie into unstable countryies in africa, which includes imperialism. Society suffer's when children are used in armed conflict because families loose their children and dont know if they are ok.They wont get a education or good memories growing up.
