THE SOCIO-POLITICAL SITUATION IN MALI
WACSOF CALLS FOR A PEACEFUL RESOLUTION OF THE CRISIS

ABUJA, July 09, 2020: The West African Civil Society Forum (WACSOF) is concerned about the social and political situation that has prevailed in Mali for some time. Since June 05, 2020, demonstrations are regularly organized by a coalition called ‘’The movement of June 05’’, composed of movements, political parties, and civil society organizations, opposed to the president in office His Excellency Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta.

1. WACSOF would like to remind all stakeholders that the present crisis has added to the precarious security, economic and health parameters which has weakened the country and its citizens and the ECOWAS region for a long time.
2. WACSOF calls on all stakeholders to place the well-being of citizens at the center of their priorities and at the center of any solution.
3. WACSOF encourages ECOWAS to continue the mediation actions underway and any peaceful action to resolve the crisis. WACSOF invites ECOWAS to include Civil Society Organizations in the mediation process.
4. WACSOF also encourages the government of Mali and ‘’The movement of June 05’’ to resolve the crisis peacefully and to avoid any recourse to violence.
5. WACSOF calls on Civil Society Organizations to work with stakeholders to find ways to strengthen the voice of the people while promoting peaceful, transparent, responsible, and participatory governance with the inclusion of women, youth and other marginalized groups.
