Today in social sciences Paqui has explained with a little sumary about the things we learnt yesterday about the scramble for Africa, while we have seen a power point.
Daniel and Ángel have asked about why Africa was distributed and Paqui has answered them that the african people couldn´t defend because they were inferior in weapons and in technology.
In the powerpoint there is a picture where you can see people without a hand, there are also children. Then Paqui has explained us that our maps of empires are bad, because there are people that didn´t write any name and the people who wrote the names they had some mistakes. After that Ana Isabel has read a part of the big colonial empires and Paqui has explained it and later she has explained the Imperialism of the U.S.A, Japan and China.
In China Imperialism there were two opium wars between China and U.K., for this reason China reacted trained to attack and defend them.
We have spoken about some american factories as IPad and Apple, they are american factories but they products were manufactured in China because the workers works as slaves.
We also spoke about: Hong Kong, Popular democracy, Communist Party...
