Puppets Obama Sarkozy in Dakar to fight Aids by Bruno Demeocq on Vimeo.

"The US and the EU are Africa's biggest donators"

Bruno Deme is a Franco-Senegalese documentary maker living in Dakar.

The protest was organised to mark the opening of an international AIDS conference. I went along because a friend of mine who works for Save the Children helped to make the puppets. The NGOs chose to model them on Sarkozy and Obama because the US and the EU - of which France is currently president - are Africa's biggest donators."
