The deputies of the Ecowas (Economical Organisation of West African States?)
are gathering for a special summit in Lomé on the 10th to talk about how to enforce
democracy. By now several states of the western world support the West African Union and
waiting for the outcome of their next steps. The reaction of the togolese people will also depend
on it – we await the outcome of this day!
The expected amnesty has been given today, but only today. Only in Lomé 1498 inmates
have been freed.
Radio France International, an internationale radiostation are beeing jammed
or the relais are shut off, since they “apparently support the opposition”.
Demonstrations have only been banned until the end of the 60 day election period.
The opposition is calling for peace marsh anyway.
