14 During the Berlin Conference, many European nations claimed their colonies in Africa, however, this was all done without the presence of African representatives. This clearly results in the violent reactions and actions of the African peoples, which is shown in docs 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9. However, other African nations did not necessarily condem the Europeans because they sought good relations with them without violence as shown in docs 2. and 3. In contrast, European nations believed that they were colonizing effectively by benefiting the Africans, which the Africans accepted.
