The Malinese musicians Amadou & Mariam are the latest recruits to IANSA’s campaign for a Gun-Free World Cup. Amadou & Mariam are on the bill of the historic World Cup concert on June 10, 2010, at the newly-renovated Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg. Speaking in London, where Amadou & Mariam were launching their autobiography, Amadou Bagayoko said: “We want peace in Africa. No arms, no war, just joy.” See iansa.org/worldcup
