African year

 During the 1960s, lots of countries in Africa independed. Therefore the 1960s are widely know as the African year. And this year, the year 2005, is also called the African year. The year 2005 is called an African year because the international society is paying attention again to the African problems.
 There was the AA(Asian African) conference this April, the G8 summit was held in July with Africa as their main theme, and the special summit of the UN gave a review conference of the MDGs (Millenium Development Goals) in September.

 Since this year is called the African year, I would like to take part in it by writing about the problems in Africa for a couple of times.
