A new opposition demonstration dispersed by the police.


On March 22, 2018, Police dispersed the protest of the Guinean opposition demonstrating against the results of the local elections held on February 4th 2018.
In Guinea, a new day of opposition mobilization took place onThursday, March 22. Its leader, Cellou Dalein Diallo, continues to challenge, since February 4, the results of the local elections. At the call of the UFDG, his party, activists and sympathizers demonstrated. If the march was accepted by the authorities, the route was not validated. Tibou Camara, minister advisor and emissary of the presidency even tried a last minute mediation at the home of Cellou Dalein Diallo, before the departure. But the leader of UFDG camped on his positions. From the beginning of the demonstration, clashes erupted between protesters and police. On the transversal number 3, the throwing stones of the demonstrators fuse against the tear gas of the police under the dazed look of the inhabitants of the district. “What we see in our country today, it really worries us a lot,” says one of them. We did not believe that it could happen in Guinea. In less than an hour, the large police force pushes the demonstrators back to the crossroads Cosa, one of the strongholds of the opposition. In front of the market, and before fleeing the stones thrown by the police, a student worries about the deleterious situation. “If there is a mess in the country, we can not study! Moms will not be able to go out to get money, how are we going to eat? She asks. Since the communal elections of February 4, the opposition still disputes the results, says one of the sympathizers. “We dispute what came out and we want the real result and not the one that was given, because it’s trickery.” In a meeting with its activists, the leader of UFDG Cellou Dalein Diallo, does not intend to give up. “This fight we will continue until victory,” he said. Be still mobilized, we are not right to give up since many have already died. According to the opposition, more than 90 people have been killed during demonstrations since 2011.
