Photographer's Note

The victim.

People of Timia, Niger, a place that is suffering now terribly, and no one in Europe seems to care. This is not a worthy cause, they do not have fashionable leader as the Tibetans, who are they , nothing more than a bunch of Muslim shepherds.

Rising prices of uranium and corporate greed, as well as corrupted Niamey officials are reasons for war that is now taking place in northern Niger, in mountains of Air, including his village of Timia, peaceful lush oasis, now cut off from the world.

The Chinese, greedy for African uranium, are supplying government with weapons so that it can protect its interest from being shared with people who had nothing from it, but environmental pollution. The government not only banned all journalists from entering the area, but is arresting all witnesses, both foreign and domestic. Americans will protect its activity as well, as usual happily calling, together with local regime, all who want change a well known name “terrorists”.
