Green lung, Bamako
In the southern corner of the Sahara, and on the fringe of the capital city Bamako, the fertile Magnambougou district offers an essential oasis. Along the banks of the river Niger, carefully organized plots of land crisscross broken houses and dirt roads. As urbanization of Mali’s capital continues — a trend replicated across West Africa — the tranquil ‘green lung’ plays an increasingly positive role in cooling and feeding the sun-soaked city.
Wake-up Silesia !
Wake-up Silesia !
Memories of State of war period in Silesia, 1981.
The eighties period in poland is known for the State of war, declared
by Jaruzelski in 1981. Social mouvements all around the country
as well as the rise of the first independent trade union of Poland,
Solidarnosc, led by Lech Wałęsa, left a mark on the begining of
this decade. During over one year, from 1980 to 81, workers were
on a way for better rights and social care. This was the first sign of
freedom after decades of Polish communism regime.
Later, contestation has been put down by blood, the month of
december 1981 was the begining of tree years of intense repression
in Silesia, as well as in the whole Poland.
Few years after the recognition of those events, in 2007, I travelled
through Upper Silesia to meet trade union leaders, activists,
opponents of Jaruzelski’s government, or anyone who could tell its
story and experience of Stan Wojenny.
