Six months ago, last January, artisan baker Stéphane Ravacley went on hunger strike to oppose the expulsion of his apprentice Laye Fodé Traoré.

This fight had aroused strong emotion and a significant citizen mobilization which resonated beyond our borders.

Today for both of them this fight sets an example and continues to help young foreigners once of age to continue their apprenticeship.
