Today 16th of june 2015 protests against landgrabbing in the Malian Office du Niger region are taking place in the two villages of Sanamadougou and Sahou. More precisely,the peasants in question are organising a sit-in near Sahou in front of the farm business of Modibo Keita who arranged to be ‘offered’ the land by the Malian government.

About 50 activists of the Bamako section of Afrique-Europe Interact already arrived yesterday in Sahou – together with several journalists. In addition, 100 members of the COPON (the farmers union at the Office du Niger initiated by Afrique-Europe-Interact) will participate too. Generally we can say that the preperation for this action were not easy, but at the same time it is a great success that all the villagers, the activists of Africa-Europe Interact and COPON decided to make this action (one day before the start of Lent).
