Djougal Mama Cisse, President of the Collective of Women Workers and Wives of Workers in the Huicoma, an oil production and marketing company, denounces privatization. She said “Huicoma is a Malian company created to reduce unemployment but [was] ‘brutally privatized by the Malian authorities to Tomota Group, which, according to her, has no experience in the oil mill. ‘Tomota, since its arrival, began to lay off 400 people. They referred all seasonal workers. They put us all in layoffs for three months and the government said nothing. The state did not play its role of guarantor."
