Touraeg exile demands accountability 

Touareg leader, writer and poet, Issouf Maha, in exile in France, calls for accountability from the French government for the destruction of Touareg lives and livelihoods in Niger, where French government-owned nuclear corporation, Areva, has mined uranium for 40 years. Areva has now been awarded the contract to operate the giant Imouraren uranium mine in northern Niger, expected to be the largest uranium mine in Africa and scheduled to open in 2012. Watch the short Maha video (in French).
