Mali : ne pas s’y fier !

Comme suite à l’attaque surprise de commandos en 4x4 d’Aqmi sur Konna (bourg du Nord Mali), le jeudi 10 janvier 2013, le président Dioncounda Traoré proclame l’état d’urgence, car seraient menacés non seulement les 100 000 habitants de Mopti (ville historique des Dogons), mais aussi la route de la capitale Bamako. Il lance un appel au secours à son collègue François Hollande. Le chef suprême des armées françaises saute sur ses godillots et casque colonial, pour répondre présent, officiellement le vendredi 11 janvier, dans l’espoir d’arrêter une chute vertigineuse dans les sondages d’opinion.

Mali

30/07/1998
From 1990 onwards there has been an armed conflict in the north of Mali. Armed Tuareg groups attacked government institutions and civilians. Due to the armed conflict, 120,000 Tuaregs fled abroad. In 1992 a peace agreement was signed between the government and the Unified Movements and Fronts of Azawad (MFUA), an umbrella organisation of four armed Tuareg groups. The agreement provided for disarmament of the Tuareg rebels and their integration into the armed forces. But the rebellion and the killings did not cease.

African Women for Peace

African women peace activists were very visible during the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women and the parallel NGO Forum, which took place in Beijing, China, in September 1995. A highlight of the opening ceremony for the NGO Forum featured the presentation of a peace torch by the African Women for Conflict and Peace Project. "The woman is the first person to promote peace, because she is the first victim when there is no peace," said one African activist. Below is a brief sketch of some of the peace work African women are involved in.
