FNDC interrupts its call to demonstrate to “give one

The FNDC, the group that led the protest in Guinea against former President Alpha Condé, announced yesterday that it was canceling its call for a demonstration scheduled for Thursday, which was announced as the first major protest rally during the ruling junta in Conakry. The National Front for the Defense of the Constitution (FNDC) stated in a statement that it wanted to “give a chance” to the dialogue proposed by the head of the transitional government, Mohamed Béavogui.

The FNDC had demanded to take to the streets on Thursday and override the ban on all demonstrations adopted by the junta that came to power by force in 2021 by overthrowing President Condé. At the same time, the FNDC noted the “declaration of intent” of Prime Minister Mohamed Béavogui and announced that it would suspend the march scheduled for Thursday and observe a “one-week ceasefire”.

“In view of the measures taken with the national coordination of customary and religious leaders, traditional organizations and associations, but also civil society organizations and other good offices, (…), the FNDC informs national and international opinion that it observes a one-week ceasefire of interrupting citizens and peaceful march, evidence this Thursday, June 23, 2022 in Greater Conakry until June 30, 2022. FNDC recalls, however, that in the absence of convincing results during this period of repeal of his motto, he will find himself guilty to renew its call to demonstrate in order to satisfy its legitimate demands ”.

The Prime Minister says about the transition, Mohamed Béavogui, appointed by the junta, reached out on Monday. “I urge all the living forces of the nation around the dialogue table,” he said, arguing for the “reality (…) violent” in the state of the country he and his government faced during a four-week “immersion” in the provinces outside Conakry.
