In Bamako, two hills face each other, separated by the Niger River. The University of Bamako, the "hill of knowledge" sinks into chaos day after day. The AEEM, the single union of Malian students, rules using racketeering, corruption, electoral fraud. Its most striking arguments are machetes but its "warriors" do not disdain Kalashnikovs. Here, these union leaders learn techniques of government that they will apply tomorrow when become political leaders, they will settle on the opposite hill, the "hill of power".
