Translated from Swedish by Emmanuelle Sylvain and Matilde Anxo Psychiatrist and anti-colonialist activist, Frantz Fanon has long been censored in France for his fight against racism, xenophobia, indignity and alienation, at a time when these subjects were taboo. More than fifty years after his death, his thought still resonates at the heart of our political and societal issues. But, who was this man ? Why are we still so concerned by his fight? This essay offers a new reading of his journey, articulating the right to rebellion against a new colonization that does not say its name: globalization.
