elpais1In a recent article for El Pais, journalist Marco Vernaschi reports about the cocaine trade in the West African country of Guinea-Bissau. You can find a complete download of his reportage here. Stay tuned for my own text on the upcoming second round of voting for the office of the President. I asked two eminent experts of the country for their opinion if the elections will make any difference for the destitute and politically marginalised majority of Guineans. The article will appear on this blog in course of next week.
