[RPCV news] Guinea Solidarité Facebook page and website

A Facebook page has been started to "in support of the Guinean people and of an end to military rule and dictatorship and a beginning of freedom and prosperity."

It noted: On September 28, 2009, the Guinean military brutally cracked down on the unarmed population protesting military rule and junta leader Moussa Dadis Camara's likely candidature for president. By many accounts at least 200 people were killed and women and girls viciously raped in the capital city of Conakry that day.

This group has been formed in response to these atrocities as a show of solidarity with people in Guinea and to serve as a forum for organizing in support of a transition to the democracy that has eluded Guinea for the past 51 years of independence.

The Facebook page can be accessed here.

They've also launched a web site, which can be found at:
