What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

If you're fairly normal (with an eccentric streak like myself), then you'd take a look at the banner to get a sense of the nature of the meeting.

It was the "Pan-African Civil Society Networks Meeting on the Africa Mining Vision". I will deliberately be short on specifics as I do not believe this blog to be the platform to pontificate on the issue of mining, or the continental aspiration--known as the Africa Mining Vision.

Suffice-to-say, mining is a very big issue in this country. There are a number of civil society organisations that every day seek to shed light on the practises and what it means for mining countries like Ghana.

If you are not in Ghana (and even if you are), you might have missed the conference. It's not difficult to catch up at all:

Yes, I have been a way for a while. real life. And still LOVING Google.

Thanks for your patience and understanding, and for your continue patronage of my many blog entries of Accra and Ghana! 

I am not back; I am around!;-)
