Our video guest: Mr. Mamadou Cissokho

Our video guest this week is Mr. Mamadou Cissokho. He is the honourary President of ROPPA a network of Peasant organizations and Producers in West Africa. He is also the facilitator of the “Pan African Platform for the farmer of Africa”. It is this context that we met Mr. Mamadou Cissokho at the European Commission in Brussels. In this interview, Mr. Cissokho presents the historical origins and the current objectives of this new platform. Interestingly, the cration of this new platform goes along with the revival of the African Union and the NEPAD. As Mr. Cissokho puts it, it represents an endeavour to promote a civil society led regional integration. However, Mr. Cissokho points out that is about solidarity in autonomy. Hence, this new platform aims to coordinate common positions with regards to continetal issues, without being a confederation in which regional organizations would dissapear, according to the principle of subsidiarity. Mr. Cissokho launches a call to support the activities of this new forum, whose constitutive assembly will be held on the 24th of May, 2010, in Addis Abbeba under the Chairmnship of the President of the African Union Commission.
