[Advocacy news] Alliance Guinea to meet with State Dept. officials

I received the following message from our colleagues at the advocacy group Alliance Guinea:

We have been invited by the State Department, to a special briefing for representatives of Nongovernmental Organizations, on the Current Situation in Guinea. The Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of African Affairs, William Fitzgerald, will discuss ways that the United States can help facilitate the establishment of a democratically-elected government, restore economic and political development programs in Guinea this Friday, March 5, 2010 2:00 – 3:00 the State Department.

Alliance Guinea will be represented and we would like to make sure that we are representing your voices, so we are reaching out to all Alliance Guinea members to gather your message for the State Department.

What would you like to see the State Department doing to support the transition to democracy, and help bring justice for the victims of crimes against humanity committed during last year dreadful events, in Guinea? Any questions or concerns that you would like the State Department to address?

Please take a moment to write few lines addressing the questions above and send us your reply no later than Thursday March, 4th.

We look forward to hearing from you,
Thank you,
Alliance Guinea

I haven't heard back vis-a-vis my query but you can do one of two things. You can either leave your thoughts in the comments section here or email me ( I received the message from them via Facebook and can pass along your comments via that method. But please do so by tonight. Thanks.
