Between Europe and West Africa, a one-way free trade

In July 2014, after months of blackmail and pressure from the European Commission, the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) between the EU and West Africa, Southern Africa and East Africa were finally initialed. These agreements, unfortunately unknown, embrace the sacred dogma of the European Commission, "to develop free trade" between the EU and the countries called ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific). The EU previously maintained unilateral trade preferences with these countries - former colonies - benefiting from preferential market access to the European market. Under the EPA agreements, tariffs shall be removed on 80% of European exports. With these EPAs, the free trade dogma is expressed in all its splendor.
