ONITIANA V8

Tsy aiko ny fandehany amin’izao ora sy fotoana hanoratako izao. Ohatrinona ny vola efa voangona any amin’ny ramatoa minisitra Realy sy ramatoa ministra Atallah momba ity resaka DIASPORA MALAGASY tiany andray andraikitra ho any firenena ity! Raha mbola tsy misy izay dia tsara sy deraina ny fihetsika asehonareo ry namana. Aza manome fa efa mivoaka ny fefiloha ny voay amin’izao fotoana izao ary tena mandrapaka sy manaikitra izay hitany rehetra eny an-dalambe ry zareo.

Tandremo ry namana malagasy mitady ravin’ahitra aty ivelany fa mamely miafina be ihany koa ny Trambo sy ny biby Dia. Ary manao izay fomba rehetra hitany hitadiavana vola hamenoana ny paosy sy hitadiavana voninahitra.

Maro amintsika angamba no efa mahafantatra fa nahazo fiarakodia tsy mataho-dalana TOYOTA V8 ny minisitra ny mponina malagasy Onitiana Realy.  Tsy nila niasa ela akory ity farany dia efa miliara ny ao am-paosy vao maika izany fa omenareo fanampiana izy, vola tsy nosasarana fa vola adala tompo. Draisy! « Lavie est belle » na « milay be ny fiainana ».

Mamboly voky, tsy mamboly voky 

Amin’ny ankapobeny, ny politika no sehatra lehibe indrindra handaminana ny fiarahamonina, hitadiavana ny soa sy ny tsara ho any firenena. Rehefa tsy mamely ny politika dia manaraka izay onjany izay ny fandehany toe-draharaha! Eto dia tiako sarihina kely vetivety ny sainareo mpanaraka tsy tapaka ity blog ity fa zavatra mahagaga sy mahatalanjona hatrany ny zava-baovao eo amin’ny fampianarana ny ratsy asehon’ireto politisianina malagasy ireto.

Rehefa avy « niala an’Akatso » dia « miditra an’Ambohidempona » indray isika malagasy! Tsy henatra, tsy tahotra ary fasahiana feno habibiana ny fandikako izao fihetsika asehony ramatoa onitiana Realy izao manoloana ny fividianana ity fiara mitentina aminà miliara ity.

Minisitra misahana ny mponina sy ny fiahiana ara-tsosialy ianao ramatoa dia sahinao ny mandakà ireo olona ireo any @ ambavafoany! Olona tsotra, sahirana, mila fanampiana avy any aminao. Olona tsy be teny, mahay miharitra ny fery ao aminy. Olona nabadoana amin’ny fomba maro samihafa, manantena ny ho avy mamiratra hatrany sns. Na dia olona maty heritreritra aza ve ianao ramatoa dia tsy mampaninona ny sainao mandinika izao fomba ratsy ataonao izao?

Ekena fa olona tsy niharitra, olona tsy mahafantatra izany atao hoe fahoriam-bahoaka izany ianao ramatoa minisitra. Mampiasa ny haino aman-jery, hitadiavana vola, dera sy laza ary ny voninahitra no tena talentanao! Teny tsara lahatra no betsaka fa ny ataonao dia mitovy amin’ireo namanao teo aloha sy ireo mpiara-miasa, mpangalatra tsy vanona sy tsy valahara, mpanao politika rehetra ireo.

Na mamboly voky na tsy mamboly dia voky hatrany ianareo mpanao politika ireo! Tohizo ny adalana, ataovy  foana izay mety rehetra hangalarana sy hanaovana tsinotsinona ny mpiarabelona aminareo. Asehoy fa ianareo no tompony fahefana dia araraoty tsara sao rehefa very fihinana vao hitsipozipozy tahaka ireny rafotsy be banga ridana, tsy mahavidy solonify ireny ianareo mianakavy ao.

Toerana hifandimbiasana io Tompokolahy sy Tompokovavy. Mihevera tena fa mampahonena tanteraka ny fihetsika sy ny fomba amam-panao asehonareo. Tsindriko etoana fa tsy mahafaty na mahamenatra ny mampiseo monkodoha sy mitazona ny teny nomeny amin’ny fitadiavana ny soa sy ny tsara ho an’ny firenena sy ny mponina ao aminy. Rehefa misy ny fahadisoana dia tokony mahay miala tsiny,  tsy tokony atao mipetraka eny amin’ny sisi-tosy ny azafady fa ampiasaina isan’andro amin’ny asa aman-draharaha izay nankinina taminareo.

Diaspora malagasy

Raha eo amin’ny lafiny ara-ekonomika dia marina tokoa fa manana ny maha izy azy ireo malagasy sasany, mpila ravin’ahitra ivelany Nosy. Raha ny ohatra aty Amerika Avaratra no zaraiko aminareo dia tahaka izao ny fandehany (Mitovy amin’izao ihany ny fandehany raha expat na olona manana asa tsara mipetraka any Afrika, Asie sy Europe ny malagasy iray tsara karama sy fivelomana).

Eo anelanelan’ny $40 000/an – $80 000/an ny atao hoe « classe moyenne ; Mihoatra ny $80 000/an ny saranga ambony na mpanakarena, mpanefoefo izay 1% ny mponina raha ny aty Canada no asian-teny.

Ny tiako lazaina dia ity: Maro ny malagasy mipetraka aty Amerika no manana ny maha izy azy. Raha ny fitadidiko dia taty mihitsy no nanao antso avo ny governemanta @ tokony andraisany Diaspora malagasy anjara @ fanarenana ny firenena.

Dia hoy aho manoro hevitra sy manipy ny teny any aminareo tapaka sy namana Diaspora malagasy ireo manao hoe: TSIA!

TSIA ny valiny satria olona misy saina sy hendry ianareo ireo ka mitandrema fa fisolokiana avo lenta ny anaranio hataka ataony governemanta-ny MAFIA malagasy io.

Mankalaza,

Don’t hold on to the climate

The recent political turmoil and manipulation experienced in Madagascar led many of the ever so opinionated Malagasy to fear reprisal if they were to take on the streets and protest. Here is a valued aspect of advocacy and activism – there are many alternatives. One of which is slacktivism.

It has been repeatedly said around tables at home, in cafés and restaurants that “something” must be done for one cause or another. Poverty? Injustice? Political manipulation? Involvement of the international community in our politics?

Indeed, in the midst of this political unpredictability we must be careful not to contribute to the confusion. Yet, standing aside and leaving causes worth fighting for be reported to a later time is not an option. At a time when the majority of the population is attentive to Madagascar’s well being one must act, that time is now ! Manifest into actions those never ending criticisms. Enough heard already. Do something!

The-rise-of-the-Slacktivist


What is slacktivism?

Slacker ? Activist? Well guess what you can be both and still make an impact. If you don’t want to take the streets for whatever reason then be a slacktivist, it is ok !

Slacker and activism are the two little words to brand a new age “feel-good” measure of making an impact in your world. Slacktivism has become somewhat of a buzzword when it comes to demeaning the electronic versions of participation, may it be political of otherwise. Slacktivist activities include signing internet petitions, joining a community organization, copying and pasting of social network statuses or messages.

You are not a lonely bowler

Skeptics have raised valuable arguments opposing this approach to advocacy. Namely the view that internet activities are ineffective, or that they lessen real life political participation or other forms of civic engagement. Robert Putnam, a political scientist and Harvard professor has argued that citizens are becoming “lonely bowlers” who no longer interact socially. As a result they are no longer willing to take part in political matters. May be so, but the beauty of the social dynamics of Madagascar renders it an ideal breeding ground for a mixture of both.

 The willingness is there, unfortunately so is the fear, the hesitation. Those who are well ingrained in their causes willing to lead should go ahead and do so. Giving others the opportunity to follow and support. Malagasy, we think we are lonely bowlers but give us an opportunity to gather and we will. This is when slacktivism comes into play. There are already some precedence: “liking” an NGO’s status, signing petitions to strengthen conservation projects, paypal donations to so and so charities. Let take it a step further !

Tools you need for your slacktivism

Social media and new technology are your essential tools. These are extremely versatile and adaptable means for civic engagement in the 21st century. They can be used for any purpose: to seem “cool”, to develop a business and lately for social change. Hence, it can be used to destroy or build depending on the purpose of its user.

Make sure your message is well researched, informative and tailored to your audience. That been said, I can already hear the typical excuse: “not all Malagasy have access to the internet”. Guess what? There are always alternatives: your mobile phones. Ilay foza-oran’e !

 In 2009, there were 4 835 000 mobile phone users hence 25 % of the Malagasy population. In fact, this number doubled in 2011 to 43% hence 8 665 000. Seen as at least 20% of us are literate, logically if you can read you are most likely to own a mobile phone.

 Social media is also on the rise. The facebook, twitter, instagram and you-tube fever continues. If you have not heard about one of these you may have lived in a cave for the past decade. The Malagasy’s limitless curiosity will only strengthen our internet presence. These are the tools you need for your slacktivism. Bear in mind the importance of being well informed so as to reinforce your impact.

 Civic engagement through slacktivism, why not?

Noticing, an increasing number of groups using new technology and social media to facilitate civic engagement and collective actions in Madagascar is a breath of fresh air. We must continue opening up to the World. Continue informing our distant neighbors about Madagascar. Please let us talk about other topics and not just “the unique fauna and flora”. How cliché ! It is not the only cause that needs collective participation. How about: Political crisis? Democracy? Transparency? Upcoming elections? Or even our colonial history? And finally ! the ever growing consciousness and reactions on the manipulation of the “international community”.

We cannot all be chiefs

If we are so fearful to taken on the streets, then let’s be slackers. Instead share powerful messages, petitions or join organizations that stand up for our principles. See ! we cannot all be leaders. It is just the way it is. There will always be some chiefs and more indians.

If we were all intending to be chiefs of within a household, at church or for a social change organization, nothing will be achieved. Chiefs, elaborate that researched and targeted cause and spread it. Followers, show your support in a concerted effort.

We can criticize and moan all we want on national radio and we should, but let us aim for an even larger impact: the international community itself. The citizens of those countries who only view Malagasy as confused, powerless, manipulated population. Show them how mistaken they have been. I have never experienced such an opinionated and passionate population! We know it, but do others know?

 Andao ary i-slacktivist e!

Activism has taken on a new route and we, Malagasy cannot and should not fall behind, use it to our advantage. Let us be opportunistic. I have witnessed first hand the firing dedication inside us when it comes to our own politics. A spoken desire for change but also an apparent hesitation.

Well, social media and new technology is there as your companion. It can shield you from the prejudice of others and that “gaz lacrimogène” you so fear of. No one is judging you so long as you do something within your capacity.

 So fellow Malagasy once again here is a call to use the digital tool of today to shape your future. For those with an internet presence, use it ! Reach beyond borders and please enough talks about that one endemic flower. It is time to explain clearly, share information abroad so as to strengthen your initiative for change on the Malagasy territory.

Remember we can be supporters, faces and ambassadors to shape Madagascar’s new future as slacktivists.

The motto is : samy mitondra ny anjara birikiny e !

Raha tsy hilaza ilay oham-pitenenany manao hoe : « Tsy famenoana ny banga tsy azo taloha akory ny tetezamita. » Dia gaga sy talanjona tanteraka ny tena raha nihaino any Andry Rajoelina nitafa tamin’ny mpanao gazety. Nilaza Mankony andriamatoa « filohan’ny repoblika tsy demokratika any Madagasikara» fa tsy fotoanan’ny fangatahana izao andron’ny tetezamita izao.

4 taona aty aoriana dia tsy nisy ny fihovam-pitenenana sy ny fihetsika ary ny fomba fijerin’andriamatoa mpanentana. Ho anay « blogueur activiste » na « journaliste citoyen » miady amin’ny resaka « injustice » sy « pauvreté » dia tsy azo ekena izao zavatra mitranga eto amin’ny firenena izao, fa indrindra ny fomba ratsy izay tiany Andry Rajoelina sy ny forongony hapetraka ho lova an’ny taranaka malagasy.

« Disc » lany herinaratra sy valinteny boraingina sisa ny zavatra takatrin’ny sainy, any ka lasa sahirana ny vahoaka mahazo izany nohon’ny fahaizany mampiasa ny hery famoretana sy ny fanaovana tsinotsinona ny fahafahana maneho hevitra, anatin’ny didin’ny be sandry.

Naneho hevitra satria tsy nety tamin’ny fomba fijeriny ny zavatra ataon’ny fitondrana ankehitriny sy ny miaramila. Nanotrona ny hetsika nokarakarain’ny ankolafy Ravalomanana ny asabotsy 28 Aprily lasa teo dia voasambotra satria namoaka vava ireo miaramila mpitam-basy ity rangahy ity.
