Junta invites leaders of civil society and political parties to meet
Little by little, the Alpha Condé page is being turned. In another press release released this evening, the Guinean putschists continue to justify their coup against the Alpha Condé regime. According to them, the act they have taken today is “an inaugural action to create the conditions for a rule of law”. Communicated
The gesture we are taking today is not a coup d’etat but an inaugural action to create the conditions for a state. More precisely a rule of law. Because the political history of our country, marked by violence, injustices and inequalities proves that in Guinea the will of the strongest has always supplanted the law. Since gaining independence, the authoritarian spirit has triumphed over the spirit of the just and the reasonable. And it is moreover because we consider this deeply abnormal and unjustifiable situation that we have decided to act, to make a gesture around which we want to mobilize all good conscience in order to get our country out of the political curse.
Our action is not a coup d’etat. It only reflects the legitimate aspiration of people to want to live in an environment where basic human needs can be met. Where it is possible for everyone, without fear, to enjoy life, to study, to take care of themselves, to work humbly without being subjected to the constraints of informal networks. Where, finally, power is responsible for its population.
We want to reconcile politics and people. Our gesture is therefore nothing other than the expression of our desire for dignity that you certainly share with us. However, it is because respect for our dignity has been flouted since 1958 by a minority which confiscates power and its economic advantages that we have taken the initiative, summoned by a sense of duty, to create the conditions for a new political and social departure. The action we are taking today is therefore a first step. An inaugural moment.
