Africa has a voice. Fifty years after independence, Africa demands that its voice must be heard

Africa is the world's second-largest and second-most-populous continent. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The continent includes Madagascar and various archipelagoes. Africa is also famous for its animals, such as the "Big Five".
