Almoustapha Alcahen, Niger

2017 In Basel

In 1978, Almoustapha Alhacen was employed by the Areva nuclear company as a worker in a uranium mill near Arlit. Because there were strange illnesses among colleagues and their wives and mysterious deaths of relatively young people, Alhacen founded a local NGO called Aghirin`man in 2002, in Tuareg language "Protection of the Soul", dedicated to research into uranium dangers.
