Since the massacres of 2009, the Fulani community, already ostracized in Guinea, is more distraught than ever. These massacres testify to the failure of Guinea as a nation. They invite a questioning of the assumptions on which the nation was founded. They call for a deep examination of the issue of ethnic and national identity of all Guineans. Events after the elections that were supposed to put the country on the track of change have only reinforced the idea of a nation structurally torn apart.
More than ever it is essential to work to bring these questions in a public debate in order to change pain into a real force for change, to ensure mutual respect and democratic balance between the different nationalities of Guinea.
