The New Scramble For Africa looks beyond the humanitarian rhetoric and examines the geo-strategic motives of the Western powers in Africa


With the French invasion of Mali in January this year a new front opened up in the ongoing 'War On Terror'. The pretext for invasion was a familiar story of 'terrorist insurgents' and 'ungovernable spaces'.

Dan Poulton will be talking about his film at a screening at Westminster University, Thursday 28th March at 6pm. More details on the Facebook event
