Phun Fact.

The island is a condominium, the world's smallest, under joint sovereignty of Spain and France, and for alternating periods of six months is officially under the governance of the naval commanders of San Sebastián, Spain (1 February – 31 July) and of Bayonne, France (1 August – 31 January).

Dangerous Nostalgia.

Kenya, and almost every African country, was birthed by the ending of empire. Our borders were not of our own drawing. They were drawn in the distant colonial metropoles of London, Paris, and Lisbon with no regard for the ancient nations that they cleaved apart.

Today, across the border of every single African country live our countrymen with whom we share deep historical, cultural and linguistic bonds.

At independence, had we chosen to pursue states on the basis of ethnic, racial or religious homogeneity, we would still be waging bloody wars these many decades later.

Instead, we agreed that we would settle for the borders that we inherited. But we would still pursue continental political, economic and legal integration. Rather than from nations that looked ever backward into history with a dangerous nostalgia, we chose to look forward to a greatness none of our many nations and peoples had ever known.

Statement by Ambassador Martin Kimani during the security council urgent meeting on the situation in Ukraine (2022-02-21)


Die südschleswigsche Identität, von der Roßberg spricht, steht unter den jüngeren Leuten der Minderheit höher im Kurs als unter den älteren. Für die Jungen seien deutsch, dänisch oder friesisch altmodische Kategorien, sagt Roßberg. Sie sprechen meist mehrere Sprachen und bevorzugen keine. Sie wohnen mal in Deutschland, mal in Dänemark, die Grenze ist eher unwichtig.
