Sahara a region under supervision

A documentary directed by , , .



One mil­lion five hun­dred thou­sand Tuaregs live and move around the Sahara. From rebel­lion to rebel­lion, and since decades, the Tuaregs have to face those who are allied to cen­tral pow­ers and that want to exploit the earth and the sub­stra­tum resources, those who dena­ture, chase away and trans­form the orig­i­nal inhab­i­tants , by mar­gin­al­iz­ing them. The income obtained from exploita­tion of the ura­nium and the oil is never redis­trib­uted to them. Their only reward is the inevitable pol­lu­tion of these immense nomad areas and their mil­i­tary supervision.

For many years now, there are other fac­tors that have changed the sit­u­a­tion: Islamism, crime, and kid­nap­ping. Nev­er­the­less, the sup­port­ers reduce the Tuaregs to vul­gar crim­i­nals which leads to the defin­i­tive elim­i­na­tion of this free spir­ited com­mu­nity that has always lived in the desert.

In the inter­na­tional con­quest con­text, wouldn´t it rather seem that the Saha­ran pop­u­la­tion is being taken hostage?
