....................................................................: la lutte sauver la Caamance _ 2013 - 2014 :.....................................................................

language: it : fr

"La lutte" is a documentary lasting 38 minutes which tells of the struggle of the 44 villages in the north of the Casamance (Senegal) against a mining project by the multinational Sino-Australian Carnegie Astron.
In 2004 this territory was created in a marine protected area and in the same year was given the license for exploration of the subsoil to this multinational. The construction of the mine would result in the potential destruction of the dune that extends the entire length of the coast of Casamance; this dune preserve farmland by the advance of the sea allowing people to live on agriculture, fishing and farming.
In June 2013 the President of the Republic Macky Sall met in London by representatives of Carnegie Astron entering into the agreement under which the beginning of the excavation is planned for March 2014. In January 2014 was made the first screening of the documentary in the village of Niafourang accompanied by a concert by a press conference attended by the main national media.

There was an information circulated unofficially, through a contact who wishes to remain anonymous for the pressures received, that the work could begin in September 2015.
With the official stance against plans by the MDFC (Movement of Democratic Forces of Casamance), which for 30 years has been conducting an armed struggle for the independence of Casamance, there is the risk of recurrence of a conflict in recent years had vanished.
