With out having to refer to our Ancestral French historical and archaic heritage. The Seychelles community in EU took a page from Spain history, events leading to General Franco era, the similar situation in Seychelles - the British did not quite understand why our community working and friendly relation with the Spanish people. We thank this nation in spite of the bitter wars with France their support to our community effort the past 30 years. Other Spanish speaking communities who have supported us across the EU. We have a community in Spain, the decision for the Spanish government and Seychelles to base the largest fishing fleet and their contribution towards our nation fishing industry.
Above is a picture of ancient London and a picture of Buckingham Palace. We do not need to go into our colonial History. We have many Seychellois of British decent their sadness at their treatment. The Seychelles was meted the same fate as the other African colonies. We have been severely betrayed which resulted to event of 1977, the bitter exile and suffering. We mean no disrespect to the Monarchy. There are some 7,000 and by far the largest Seychelles community in EU, the old East African community. Most of the leading exile politicians took exile in Britain - it has been from here that we led our fight and bitter war to return multi party to Seychelles. The very many historic and important issues. Particularly British - French, continental rivalry. Britain role, politic in the EU , the Commonwealth which have affected, scared our community and nation. Other important British Institutions which have influenced our history and affected our nation, EU community is the Church of England, the Archaic - Fraternal Establishment. Again like the German Nation the role our community have played to rebuilding Britain economy after its collapse - Independence process of its colony and our community contributions to Britain wealth and economy today, their denial. From Reunion Island there have been great state man, scientist, personalities - the British deny that from Seychelles anybody out standing can be found, instead the very terrible treatment. The issues of the many East African communities in Britain, the Mauritian some 60,000 above, the Illois - Diego Garcian community. Importantly many of our leading individuals from Seychelles buried in British soil - how they died Our Seychelles British community have suffered from social traumas.
Greece and Seychelles have had a long relation in modern time and their community in EU with ours, their very many help, support, corporate work. they have for a very long time been involved ion the economy of Seychelles - the effort of Greek to build a more dynamic economic relation. We have a Seychelles community there scattered. After events of 1991 our British community turned to them for support and encouragement. Their experience in Britain. The know and are aware of our French European archaic and fraternal heritage. They equally understand the British culture and ways of doing things. We have had their support at EU Commission level too.
There some issues in the world not many would understand or even try. It is not about racist issues. We began re linking our EU community heritage with the Scandinavian well over 50 years ago. They came to Seychelles took part in the building industry and for a time ran the only cold storage facilities and smoke fish business. In Britain in particularly those who think they are a special people - we have learnt to treasure and value our ancient European heritage. They have come to our rescue and help during the Cold War era and the putting together of the SIROP - later Alliance exile return program. Again the USA- the White House and many other who did not know the true values of our Seychelles ancestrage and connection. Over the past 30 years our community and nation have build a very good relation with the Scandinavian countries. We have communities scattered there. They have a unique role in the EU Institutions and functioning. We have integrated some of the archaic values in our EU community coat of arms. To our British Seychelles community please take the time to value our treasures. They also take the issue of Tolken Ring more seriously than the greater British people.
The people and nation of Seychelles have a very rich heritage - we are not condoning FA Rene politic or government, beside the existence of the COMECON countries - Warsaw Pact, Seychelles Protocol with them and many economic ties. On account of our French ancestral heritage we discovered a great sense of journey - we encountered great friendship for citizens of those countries in the West. We explained our history and culture. Our nation and community in exile have build a very rich and profound friendship with them - our joint destiny, the work, endeavors our EU community made to support them, network with them. foremost how we used our French ancestral archaic heritage which they had lost to dynamise our exile return program, confront some of the more powerful obstacle we encountered. The many of them who had fled to the West knew what we were talking about. We also knew in our battle and journey we were not alone. History has cheated us if the truth be told our nation would have an important place not because of Indian Ocean, because of our EU heritage which we very effectively used. In doing what we did we contributed to bringing freedom to them, Christianity, rediscover their archaic and fraternal lost values. Our community contributed to rewriting, concepting of the the EU enlargement politic . The nations we are particularly close to is Rumania, Chekosloviakia, Yugoslavia, Poland, Hungary. We trust and have recommended since the change in the COMECON system that our EU community and government maintain this important relationship - the journey continues. We have Seychelles families in Prague. This is aspect of our values the British have done everything that it does not surface.
The above is the Royal arch in Bruxelles and Aux armes de Bruxelles we have Seychelles families, the community there who have been at the fore front of community struggle - battle to return democracy to Seychelles. Their important role to lead the Opposition and Government in Exile, their support for the SIROP - Alliance/SNM program, their contributions to our vision to build due infrastructures for our Seychelles EU community-there and the beginning of FECAS-ECSVS. In the process some of our important input in the EU Commission Institutions by our community. Our reason.
The Seychelles nation, ancestral/French, British conflict with the German. We have a large community across Germany before the unification. History has done us great injustice - during the Cold War the great efforts by many German and Seychellois to contribute to change in Seychelles. Importantly the leading German politicians who supported and contributed to our very many efforts, their Trade Union. We have very great respect for late President F Mitterand. Our community appreciated the single mindedness of the German to solving problems. Should the truth be told the unique synergy - contribution our community made which led to events of the Berlin Wall, Germany reunification, the issues of the Treuhand. We trust the German nation and their archaic institutions in their hearts of heart will remember in their history the unique role we played. Any nation that cheat and lie in their history always encounter problems
We have a picture of Old Rome and the Vatican. The Seychelles /French ancient historical issues, religion- the Catholic church, the role they played in early colony, through out the 200 years of our history. Their contributions to bring peace and multi party to Seychelles, particularly the role of the late Pope John Paul ll the very important support through out the EU by their very many institutions. We have an important Seychelles Community there. As well we have many Italian families with rich archaic heritage who have brought great wealth to the Seychelles and prosperity their very important contributions - in Seychelles modern corporate practice. Our community, the nation institutions have very important link to Sardinia, Sicily, Northern Italy, Tuscany and Rome, the many important historic contributions to our EU community and some of its infrastructures.
Picture of Salzburg where we had been living, Richenhaller Strasse, beneath the Castle. Our decision to get involved and start some kind of organization for our Seychelles Community in Europe, the Von Oswald family. On 5th June 1977 we were told - read of the Coup d’etat in Seychelles.
This is a picture of the chateau of Angers - Loire, and Saint Vincent de Paul close by the Oldest hospital in France.
