Episode 016 – Mauritania’s Democratic Tipping Point?

Where in the world could you find out that your deceased grandfather voted in a constitutional referendum 3 years after he died? In this episode, Ahmed and Nasser discuss the recent elections in Mauritania, in which an empowered opposition threaten to undo President Ould Abdelaziz' hopes for a constitutional amendment to allow himself third turn.

A Very Special Request

After long and careful deliberation, we decided to tether our platform to our audience’s support – to your support.

Unlike many of the dictators we expose, we aren’t wading in cash. At the same time, we do not want to take on debt; we do not want to seek the support of institutional funders who want to control our agenda; we do not want to become addicted to grants; and we do not want to have ads or commercial sponsors. You – our audience – will be the backbone of our support.

This can only work in one case – if you support us. Please click through and join our Patreon, where you can pledge as little as $1 a month towards our budget. And if you’re willing to pledge at least $5 a month or more, we have an exciting list of exclusive, member-only products lined up for you.

We literally cannot do this without you. How fast we scale up to our true potential depends upon how many of you place your dollars where your values are, and back teams and ventures you believe in. Click here to make your pledge.
