The community of Guineans in the USA demonstrated in Washington yesterday in support of the general strike back in Guinea. Above is a link to Aminata.com, a site which has so far had the most up to date information. I copied this picture from the ones posted.
The news of the strike and the police retaliations has started to permeate the western, english- language press. It seems that with the war in Iraq still raging only many deaths will penetrate the news organizations. I hope it doesn't came to that!
Here is a link to a Washington Post article yesterday: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/25/AR2007012500730.html?referrer=delicious
Maybe as the price of aluminum goes up, the world will take notice.
