    These so -called communiques from the opposition are coming thick and fast and are nothing more than empty rants from a bunch of cowards.These opposition figures have no clue as to what constitutes a concerted effort in getting rid of a dictatorship.They are just brandishing pieces of paper with lists of demands,which they fully know Conde will ignore.I hope at the next UFDG congress that the incompetent Diallo is given his marching orders and replaced with someone who has balls.The founding fathers of FOUTA DJALLON will be turning in their graves as to the cowardice of their descendants.
