Mamoudou Cissoko, the foreign relations spokesperson of the Patriotic Movement for MPR in France calls for standing together against the governments of West Africa in league with France, the EU and the US. Malians support the establishment of grassroots democratic structures in the country, organised by the current military-civilian government, to enable a political refoundation of the country based on Malian traditions. They also plan to fight corruption decisively and to start negotiations with jihadist groups to end the violence that has already taken the lives of so many people. France and the West have blocked this until now. The countries cooperating with France and the USA, which for years have been pretending to solve the conflicts escalating after the NATO war against Libya with war and violence and have escalated them in the process, want - from the Malian government's point of view - to force hasty new elections, which would block the grassroots democratic reconstruction of the country that has begun. The government is trying to involve the people directly and to make their needs and suggestions public through citizens' assemblies all over the country. Contrary to its pronouncements, the USA, France and the EU are boycotting the democratisation of countries all over the world out of self-interest: By cooperating with dictators and autocrats and involving them, they can exploit the raw materials of these countries more profitably for themselves than if the populations themselves were to demand the proceeds from the raw materials for the improvement of the lives of everyone in the country. France's government in particular is making a fool of itself with its demand to support democratisation through sanctions: a few weeks ago, the French government supported a military coup d'état in Chad after the death of the president, and the EU and the USA did not mention sanctions against Chad either. Three out of four dictators and autocrats are even supported by the USA with weapons, soldiers and military aid. Unlike the unilaterally informed citizens in Western countries, people in the Muslim world understand this much better. They have their own experiences with Western interventions. People in Western countries learn about this only indirectly through the news selected by the media and politicians. A poll conducted by the US Gallup Institute in the Muslim world revealed: The majority thinks Western values are good. But they believe that the West does not want them to be realised in their countries at all, because they can better appropriate the raw materials by cooperating with elites they have corrupted.

The development in Mali is a glimmer of hope in West Africa, where violence, war and displacement are spreading and destabilising more and more states. They should be supported urgently and also in critical dialogue against the powers that want to continue their policies despite their complete failure to contain the violence. Alain Badiou, the influential French philosopher, sees behind this a death drive of the capitalist West: it wants to escalate the conflicts in its former colonies, to drive the states into chaos, in order to then cooperate with militias, which then give the raw materials of the countries cheaply to the Western corporations in exchange for weapons. In all countries where the West has intervened, this is precisely the development that can be observed. It has brought suffering, death and displacement to countless people. Can the democratic awakening in Mali become an awakening in West Africa to overcome the neo-colonial order and to achieve independent African development and an end to war and violence - and also to the causes of flight? We should seize the opportunity!
Can we, can we, support the Malians? In West Africa? In Europe, in the USA?

The press release of the Patriotic Movement for MPR Renewal
MPR Section France
MPR-France has communicated with great regret and outrage the resolutions of the 4th Special Summit of Leaders of DGC! State and Government of ECOWAS and UEMOA on Mali on Sunday, 9 January 2022 in Accra, Ghana.
These extremely severe, excessive and immoral sanctions must have a clear response
We MPR France strongly condemn the sanctions against Mali imposed by the MISSIONSLOSTS in favour of their masters.
Despite the efforts of the interim President Colonel Asimi Goita and the government of Dr Choguel K Maiga to avoid escalation and ease tensions, nothing can be done, because action cannot be taken against princes.
We the people of Mali
We people of Africa
We demand the full implementation of the recommendations of the National Re-establishment
We activists it MPR France ask the data transition authorities for a chance for dialogue, while remaining firm on the decisions to protect Mali's interests.
We MPR France activists and sympathisers support the transition unconditionally
We ask the transitional authorities not to react to provocations from within and without.
We want to stay in the ECOWAS of PEOPLE and the opposite must be prohibited.
In any case, this ECOWAS there.
We appeal to the friends and brother countries to support the Mali people who are being crushed and tortured by ECOWAS.
The crisis in Mali is known to all, ECOWAS instead of accompanying Mali to end conflicts, decide to worsen the situation by closing the borders, we must accept the challenge, be vigilant and determined to defend the Patri Cont. Winds and fun because ECOWAS has chosen its side.
We ask Malians to stand together and stick together as in costume.
The Mali it are SUBMITTED and remain SUBMITTED.
Comrade President Dr Choguel K Maiga told us at a meeting, and I quote, "We will face sand wind, storm and fire and we must hold hands to cross "end of quote."
Malians, Maliians, let us support the transition and cross the desert together.
Long live the transition
Long live Mali

He served in the government as Minister of Industry and Trade from 2002 to 2007 and later as Minister of the Digital Economy, Information and Communication from 2015 to 2016. On June 4, 2021 he was named Prime Minister of the Transition by coup leader & newly appointed President of Transition Assimi Goïta. Life and career Born in Tabango, in the Gao Region, Maïga is a telecommunications engineer by profession, and is a close associate of Moussa Traoré. He was once a member of the National Youth Union of Mali. In February 1997 he became president of the Patriotic Movement for Renewal, a political party in Mali. In 2002 he stood for president, obtaining 2.73% of the votes in the first round before bowing out and supporting Amadou Toumani Touré. In the legislative election of the same year he aligned himself with Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta's Rally for Mali party and with the National Congress for Democratic Initiative, both part of the larger Hope 2002 coalition. Maïga was the Minister of Industry and Commerce in the government of Ahmed Mohamed ag Hamani, serving in that capacity from October 16, 2002 until April 28, 2004; he remained in that post under Ousmane Issoufi Maïga, serving from May 2, 2004 until September 27, 2007. In December 2005, Maïga was the Malian representative at the Hong Kong WTO Doha Round trade negotiations. With cotton and food subsidies in the developed world dramatically affecting the Malian economy, Maïga was quoted saying "[The US and EU] are like elephants fighting. We are like the grass under their feet." In the 2007 presidential election, Maïga did not stand as a candidate, instead once again supporting Amadou Toumani Touré. Following Touré's re-election, Maïga was appointed as Director of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (CRT, later known as the AMRTP) in January 2008. He remained in that post until he was appointed to the government as Minister of the Digital Economy, Information and Communication on 10 January 2015. He was dismissed from the government on 7 July 2016. On May 28, 2021, shortly after his coup against N'Daw and Moctar Ouane, Colonel Assimi Goïta announced that the post of Prime Minister would return to M5. The following day, Goïta reportedly spoke of his plans to appoint Choguel Maïga to the post. In September 2021, at the podium of the United Nations General Assembly, Choguel Maïga accused France of having abandoned Mali by deciding to withdraw the Barkhane force. He also did not appreciate not having been warned by his "partners" Paris and the UN. References
