Africa, Mali : news from the Commune of FALEA
with its 21 villages
Our tomorrow is our concern !
After an improbable but successful resistance against the opening of a uranium mine on their communal territory, the inhabitants of Falea
independently invent their future in a Mali that seems to be going to waste water. « The country is in bad shape, very bad, and the horizon is getting
darker every day… what will tomorrow be like? What will become of us? »
