On Mali


[Ruby van der Wekken]  In the North, which hosts under its desert soil yet unexplored quantities of uranium and oil, two Touareg groups - the influential Ifoghass minority and the Imghoud majority - have seen for a long time a series of disputes due to the existing socio economic inequalities (between the groups, between the North and South of Mali, resulting from Mali’s peoples marginalisation at large from a global perspective), and rebellions have happened for decades.

It's Friday 20th of November in Bamako, Mali


It's Friday 20th of November in Bamako, Mali. This morning, the news upon waking up in my hotel was given by a colleague that an attack and hostage taking is going on at the Radisson hotel downtown. In the following moments it sinks in, that this is the same hotel where we were yesterday with our partner Mali Folkecenter (MFC) for the third event of this year's FENA national environmental forum, and where we were meant to be continuing today.  The second day's discussions were supposed to be on renewable energy in Mali. As I am writing this blog, some hostages are being released.
