Abidjan, November 15th, 2004
His Holiness RAEL, leader and founder of the IRM, express his total support, his congratulations, his encouragements and his compassion to the President of the Ivory Coast Republic as to all the population of the Ivory Coast in their fight against the unacceptable intervention of the French army since Saturday
November 6, 2004.
This criminal military intervention of France, reflects its neo-colonial attitude and confirms what His Holiness RAEL denounced on January 28, 2003 in the message that he had addressed to the population of the Ivory Coast, following the events of September 19, 2002: "The dramatic events in Ivory Coast prove that France kept its colonizing spirit and constantly uses in Africa the false pretext of "protecting its nationals "to intervene militarily. The African States, in their decolonization that remains to be completed, must thus make sure that France does not have any excuse any more to send its troops ".
