One by One, Opposition Parties Saying “Conde’s Got to Go” Here is Bloc Liberal’s Statement

Crise politique : les flèches de Faya Millimouno contre le régime d’Alpha Condé

Fidèle à lui-même, Faya Millimouno a dans une déclaration dont nous détenus copie chargé le régime d’Alpha Condé. Millimouno accuse le régime de Conakry de violation répétée de la Constitution et des accords politiques signée sous l’égide des nations unies. Lisez cette déclaration:

Dans tout pays qui se veut démocratique ou en voie de démocratisation, comme la Guinée, le Président de la République doit suivre strictement les principes cardinaux qui constituent les fondements de la démocratie. C’est l’engagement sacrosaint qu’il prend le jour de son investiture. Ces principes inaliénables sont, entre autres: (1) le respect de la Constitution et des codes y afférents, (2) la tenue d’élections transparentes, dans les normes légales, et (3) la séparation des pouvoirs. Malheureusement, de 2010 à 2015, le Président Alpha Condé a systématiquement violé ces principes. Ces innombrables violations, qui vont en contresens de la Constitution Guinéenne incluent, parmi tant d’autres:

      1. 1.La fixation unilatérale de la date des présidentielles de 2015 par le Président Alpha Condé, supportés par des membres de la CENI, qui sont à sa solde. Cependant, il faut ajouter tout de suite que cette décision a été dénoncée et désavouée par d’autres membres démocrates de la CENI qui déclarent:

«L’organisation des élections à travers le monde entier est un processus professionnel, qui repose sur un cadre légal bien approprié… Aujourd’hui, des décisions prises ailleurs [par le Président Alpha Condé] voudraient nous imposer un agenda caché; ce que nous refusons catégoriquement quel que soit ce que cela va nous couter» fin de citation.ÂÂ

      1. 2.La dissolution des conseils communaux, en violation des articles 77, 80, 100 et 105 du Code des Collectivités Locales. En effet, ces articles stipulent respectivement que la durée de suspension d’un conseil communal ne peut excéder trois (3); que le Conseil d’une collectivité locale dont le tiers au moins des membres ont été reconnus coupables par le Tribunal d’avoir commis des crimes ou délits peut être dissous par décret sur proposition du Ministre chargé des collectivités locales, et que le conseil dissout doit être remplacé dans un délai maximum de six (6) mois. Malheureusement, ces dispositions et délais n’ont pas encore été respectés par Monsieur Alpha Condé.Â
          1. 3.La violation de l’accord obtenu entre le Gouvernement et l’Opposition Guinéenne en 2013, sous l’égide de l’envoyé de l’ONU. Cet accord, dispose que la tenue des communales devraient avoir lieu avant la fin du 1er trimestre de l’année 2014. Jusqu’à maintenant, ces élections n’ont pas eu lieu à cause de manœuvres politiciennes de Monsieur Alpha Condé.

ÂÂÂ

  1. 4.
    1. La non signature des accords obtenus en Juin 2014 lors du dialogue Inter-Guinéen. Ce dialogue, il faut le rappeler, a réuni les membres du gouvernement, les représentants de la Mouvance, de la CENI, ceux de l’opposition, et les deux facilitateurs nationaux. Ces accords, comme ceux de 2013 ci-dessus mentionnés, portaient, entre autres, sur la tenue des communales avant fin 2014. Cette décision, malheureusement, n’a pas été respectée jusqu’au moment de la publication de la présente déclaration. Il faut ajouter aussi que les communales n’ont jamais eu lieu depuis 2005. Ce qui malheureusement crée un vide organisationnel qui entache gravement la pratique de la démocratie à la base.ÂÂ
        1. 5.La tenue forcenée des élections Présidentielles avant celles des communales, comme voulue par Monsieur Alpha Condé et des membres de la CENI qui sont ses affidés.

Considérant la gravité des violations ci-dessus mentionnées commises par Monsieur Alpha Condé; violations qui relèvent du parjure, le Bloc Libéral déclare que Monsieur Alpha Condé s’est juridiquement disqualifié sur deux plans: d’abord pour la continuation de son mandat en cours et, ensuite, pour sa candidature quant aux élections présidentielles de 2015.

Quand le destin national est en danger, les patriotes de tout corps de métier, de tout parti politique et de toute religion; doivent se lever pour défendre leurs vies, celles de leurs familles et des générations futures, et le bien-être de la nation. Considérant que le destin de la Guinée se joue en ce moment grave de notre histoire nationale, le BL demande à tous les Guinéens d’unifier leurs forces pour catalyser le départ de Monsieur Alpha Condé, afin d’assainir notre univers politique et permettre à la Guinée d’émerger.

Que Dieu bénisse et protège le peuple de Guinée!Â

Guinea Opposition Party “Bloc Liberal” Proposes Holding Next Elections in 2015 Running Presidential and Legislative Races Simultaneously

MILLIMONODR. FAYA MILLIMONO, LEADER OF GUINEA OPPOSITION PARTY, BLOC LIBERAL

Bloc Liberal (or Liberal Block), is the newest political party in Guinea and it is aligned with the opposition. The leader of the party is Faya Millimono, who is a firm critic of Alpha Conde and his administration.

Bloc Liberal has introduced a plan to end Guinea’s political crisis which calls for a postponement of elections until 2015 and running  the presidential and legislative elections simultaneously.

This makes a great deal of sense because there are too many deeply-rooted problems in Guinea’s socio-political fabric to try to resolve them with a quick fix.  If the election is scheduled for two years from now, long-lasting remedies to long-standing problems can be sought and, maybe, the people of Guinea will be able concentrate on the qualities of candidates rather than worrying about being disenfranchised at the ballot box.

Liberal Bloc memorandum concerning crisis in Guinea

Friday, March 8, 2013 9:27 p.m.

logo_Le_BL_Bloc_liberal_01 Guinea has experienced in 2010 its first presidential elections on the basis of a genuine hope for democracy and a final return to constitutional order and social peace. The election of the President of the Republic should contribute to ending the long transitional period that knows the country by holding elections, free, transparent and credible. Unfortunately, two and a half years after the inauguration of the new President, the transition is far from over and the country fell into political stalemate and the social divide. Violation of rights and freedoms is fragrant. Impunity and insecurity are characteristic of the country’s current situation. Guinea is more fragile than ever and social tensions are high. Peace and national reconciliation are deeply compromised. Economic activity is slowing. Unemployment and poverty will crescendo.

However, December 21, 2010, the date of his swearing in, President Alpha Conde had yet said it is “the president of all Guineans …” He added that “the change we advocate is not against a political party or against an ethnic group, much less against a social class or socio-professional. ” This speech had yet raised much hope is far from reality that Guinea lives today.

The current socio-political crisis is the result of a lack of consensual framework for dialogue and worse policy based on exclusion and contempt for the other.

Given this situation, the Bloc Liberal notes with regret that the Guineans still continue to bear the brunt of arbitrary maintained by the State in disregard of the Constitution and the laws that protect every citizen. In the absence of strong republican institutions, and with impunity legendary, these atrocities continue to be part of the same logic of political violence known as the Guinea in January and February 2007, 28 September 2009 April 3, 2011, September 27, 2011, the night of 3 to 4 August 2012 at Zogota, etc. September 21, 2012. All these unsolved crimes plunge the country into a situation harmful.

In view of this, the Bloc Liberal reaffirms its commitment to the following principles:

  • preservation of national unity and territorial integrity;
  • respect of freedoms, the rule of law and human dignity;
  • safeguarding democracy and institution building;
  • protection of citizens and their property.

Recalling that the country is still in an unfinished transition and with reference to the principles listed and the Bloc Liberal recommends a momentary pause and reflection can avoid precipitation. Because, in the rush, this is once again an important decision on the future of Guinea would be taken without consulting the people under the pretext that we are running out of time. In addition, in a rush, and once again, it would be de facto a repetition of history, the conquest of an ideal which demonstrated its shortcomings, thus replacing the system that has fault.

In accordance with this recommendation, the Bloc Liberal adopts a proposal to end the crisis centered around the following points:

1. Immediately release all political prisoners and compensate those who have been arbitrarily arrested and those whose properties were looted or stolen by the police including traders who lost their goods.

2. Arresting systematically all the activities of INEC over the entire national territory.

3. Coupled organize elections (presidential and legislative) in 2015. The parliamentary elections now will only plunge the country into a deep crisis with unforeseeable consequences and devastating.

By 2015, it will:

  • Establish an independent electoral commission with real skills and real powers. This technique is the image of the organ in charge of elections in Ghana and has a permanent and independent electoral administration. This will require a new law on the establishment, organization and functioning of the National Electoral Commission (CENI) and the revision of the Electoral Code.
  • To recruit an independent operator responsible for developing a reliable electoral register, through a revision of the existing file with transparency.
  • Develop, adopt and implement a timetable for the effective holding of fair and credible elections in a peaceful environment.

4. Establish a national unity government, offering the support political and social mainly composed of competent and honest managers, led by a prime minister with extended powers that the President will not resign by the end of the transition 2015. The choice of prime minister will be made ​​on the basis of a profile to be defined by consensus.

5. Establish a framework for consultation during the transitional period with a high-level international facilitation. The technical certification of the reliability of the electoral register will be made ​​by international mediation.

6. Establish a true national reconciliation program at local and national level. This program should be based on the establishment of a “contract local social cohesion” and the establishment of truth and justice.

7. Reforming the National Council of transition (CNT) to adapt to new realities.

8. Revise and adopt the Constitution by referendum based on the realities of the country and not a constitution copied and pasted, tailored and written the name and place of the people. Community consultation should be preferred.

9. The establishment of a permanent monitoring system reliability File electoral experts and the mainstream opposition.

A roadmap will accompany this memorandum in the coming days.

NB: all managers of the transitional period, including the President of the Republic will not be candidates for presidential and legislative elections.

GUINEA: Massive Opposition Funeral Procession, Tomorrow, Friday, March 8 and Conde Gov’t. Making Threats Against Lives of Opposition Leaders

Following are two articles from the Guinean press. The first describes plans for the funeral procession to bury nine opposition activists tomorrow, Friday, March 8. The second concerns apparent plans by Conde’s government to physically eliminate at least three opposition leaders: Jean Marc Telliano (RDIG), Mouctar Diallo (NFD) and Faya Millimono (BL).

In the past, Guinean security services have met funeral processions with tear gas and live fire. Please see the following Guinea Oye post of October 3, 2012 and the shocking account of Conde’s security services firing on a funeral procession on September 28, 2012:

(PICS) On the Third Anniversary of the 2009 Massacre, Guinea Security Forces Fire Into Funeral Procession – Four Wounded

If you combine the violence which took place during and after the February 27 march with what surely will be a massive funeral procession, along with threats against the lives of some opposition leaders, tomorrow, Friday, looks as though it could be a very dangerous day.

Stay tuned . . .

Funeral of nine opposition activists on Friday, a long procession at high risk …

posted March 7, 2013 at 9:47 am

This is a joint statement by the Alliance for Democracy and Progress (ADP) of collective political parties to finalize the transition (Collective) and club Republicans (CDR) signed yesterday regarding arrangements for the funeral of nine opposition activists which will be held this Friday, March 8, 2013.
Killed by bullets or knives, the young opposition activists were killed on the day of the march of the opposition, on February 27, and in the days that followed. That is why the member parties of the ADP, the collective and the CDR-organizers of the said event, ask their “activists and supporters and all Guinean citizens who love justice and freedom to participate massively in the funeral to pay a final tribute to the illustrious dead. ”
According to the opposition, funeral ceremonies begin at 13 hours by removing the body from Donka Hospital, followed by prayers at the Grand Mosque Faisal. Before burial in the cemetery of Bambeto, the funeral procession will leave the mosque to take the route of Prince highway, through Dixinn, and reach Hamdallaye Bambeto. The opposition “also invites the people of Guinea to make this day Friday, March 8, 2013 a day of recollection for the repose of the souls of the nine martyrs and all victims of political violence in Guinea. ”
The mourners can meet at the mosque and proceed to the cemetery in Bambeto. Slogans can be sung by young people who accompany their dead friends, speeches (more caustic) by political leaders, and especially the likely reaction of RPG (Conde’s party) militants as the procession passes by their headquarters based in Hamdallaye … more than one in Conakry is risk averse concerning this funeral Friday, March 8.

Guinea Opposition Announces June 7 March, 60 Opposition from 5-10 March Still in Jail — Children and Elderly . . . and Torture

Camp Boiro Prison

A  hell where former president, Sekou Toure, sent his fellow citizens to be imprisoned, tortured, and killed

 

**UPDATE:  Late today, the opposition met and decided to postpone the march until Tuesday, June 12**

 

Opposition March – Thursday, June 7

Late Monday, the Guinean opposition announced that its next march will be Thursday, June 7. If you recall, a march was scheduled for May 24th, but the opposition cancelled it because it looked like a set-up for an attack on the opposition. Three or four days before the planned march, information circulated in Conakry suggesting there would be a counter march by the RPG party, the party of Alpha Conde. Suddenly, Conde announced his departure for a whirlwind tour of Asia. Next, more information surfaced suggesting that a massacre of opposition supporters was planned for May 24, not necessarily by RPG alone, but also, take your pick: Donzos, Conde’s ethnic militias, one of Conde’s many mercenary forces lying in wait, or some combination of the foregoing. The opposition decided that it would not participate in a march for which a massacre was planned, especially with Conde out of the country allowing him to use his trip as the “perfect” alibi.

Stay tuned . . .

Men, Women, Minors, Small Children and a Baby Still in Jail Since May 10 March and Oh Yes, Torture

Over 60 opposition supporters are incarcerated in Coronthie jail after being arrested for the May 10 march. In addition to several arrests on the day of the march, police continued to make brutal arrests on May 11, when they burst into homes to apprehend supporters. Perhaps the most outrageous arrest was of a nurse with a baby, both of whom are still languishing in Coronthie jail. In addition, the opposition detainee list includes children under 10 years old, young adolescents and adults, including some elderly. A delegation from the opposition leadership visited their supporters in jail over the weekend. The delegation deplores the conditions of detention and denounces the injustice of the arrests, demanding all supporters be released immediately.

In addition opposition detainees say they were tortured and violated in a police substation in the neighborhood of Hamdallaye before being transported to Coronthie jail. During their visit, delegation members witnessed several instances of torture.

A member of the delegation, Faya Millimono, denounced the torture and violent attacks on the detainees by national police and gendarmerie saying that the Hamdallaye substation was “a real Camp Boiro,” referring to the primary facility where former president Sekou Toure sent his fellow citizens to be imprisoned, tortured, and killed.

Preliminary negotiations are underway to release the detainees. As with most things in Guinea, we shall see.

GUINEA UPDATE 4-13-12: Conde Taking Opposition Leaders to Court, CENI Doing a Census?, Guinea Bissau Coup “No Foreign Involvement,” Opposition March April 19

GUINEA UPDATE: 4-13-12

[This update is based on information found in several Guinean websites: africaguinee.com, aminata.com, guineenews.org, guineelibre.com, guinea58.com, guineepresse.info]

Conde’s Attempts to Criminalize the Opposition Leadership
The prosecutor for the trial court of Dixinn summoned four opposition leaders to appear before the court, next Wednesday, to answer questions about a March 17 attack at the headquarters of Alpha Conde’s party, RPG.  You may recall that March 17 was the date scheduled for the opposition’s first mass rally at Colea stadium. The government prevented the opposition from meeting, even though all administrative requirements were fulfilled with the local authorities beforehand.

Unable to enter the stadium, opposition supporters and their party leaders headed back to their headquarters. On the way back, the entourage passed by the RPG headquarters. An aide to Lansana Kouyate said RPG members threw rocks at the car they were riding in. Opposition members say the RPG threw rocks first and the RPG says the opposition hurled the first stones. RPG claims injuries and damage to several cars. Alpha Conde promised that the perpetrators would be held to account.

The opposition leaders called to appear in court are: Lansana Kouyate, Sidya Toure, Mouctar Diallo and Faya Millimono.

Thus far, two opposition parties have responded to these legal proceedings. A spokesperson for Lansana Kouyate, suggests that rather than a complaint against opposition parties, the opposition should be lodging a complaint against the RPG for attacking the opposition entourage on March 17. Mouctar Diallo called the charges ridiculous.

Guinea Bissau Coup
If you blinked, you may have missed the overnight coup in Guinea Bissau. Since the first round in the presidential election, in which prime minister Carlos Gomes, Jr. and former president Kumba Yala, finished first and second respectively, there has been a dispute regarding the transparency of the election, Yala charges that the first round was fraudulent and demands that the results be nullified. Further, Yala states that he will not participate in the second round. 

Given that the second round takes place within a few weeks, ECOWAS appointed Alpha Conde as its mediator in the conflict. Yala and four other opposition candidates, at a press conference, stated they did not want Conde to come to Guinea Bissau, suggesting he would not be able to fairly negotiate a resolution.

Last night, the Guinea Bissau military arrested interim president, Raimundo Pereira, as well as the prime minister, Carlos Gomes, Jr. Pereira has been released, while Gomes remains in custody. The military states that the reason for the coup is that it rejects any foreign involvement in Guinea Bissau and that it obtained proof of a secret deal between Pereira, Gomes, and the Angolan government to have Angolan troops enter the country. Perhaps, the appointment of Alpha Conde to mediate the conflict in Guinea Bissau, Yala’s strong rejection of his mediator services, and his close association with Angola, which is training ethnic militias for Guinea, all combined to make the coup even more imperative.

The election, originally scheduled for April 22 has just been postponed to April 29. 

In a Bait and Switch, CENI Sneaks in a Census and Hires 4,200 Election Operators in a Less than Transparent Manner

Rather than gearing up to conduct a revision of Guinea’s electoral rolls, as previously announced, it appears that the electoral commission (CENI) will do a census instead. If so, this is a highly controversial turn of events for the opposition which has fought a census for a long time because it does not believe that government officials will do it in a transparent manner. A census has far-reaching impact beyond that of an election.  Census data is used as a basis for many things: allocation of government services, distribution of funds, and figure significantly into international funding projects. One of the most politically sensitive aspects about doing a census in Guinea is that it will depict the percentages of each ethnic group in Guinea. Given that Alpha Conde has made discrimination against the Peul ethnic group a central part of government policy, the opposition is certain that the government will manipulate ethnic group numbers. The largest ethnic group in Guinea is Peul.

In another CENI sleight-of-hand, Louceny Camara announced that 4,200 people would be hired to input data associated with the revision of electoral rolls prior to legislative elections – presumably, the task is a census, now. CENI tested all applicants for the positions and the highest scorers were promised jobs. When the final list was confirmed, many top scorers were not on the list. Further many with much lower scores were on the list, as well as names claimed to be fictitious. On Wednesday, there was a demonstration in front of the CENI to challenge the selection process.

Opposition Plans March for April 19 – Gathering at September 28 Stadium

The opposition will hold a march on April 19 to express concerns about the Conde administration intention to commit fraud in the upcoming legislative elections. In addition, the opposition will call for the cessation of all activities of the electoral commission, the CENI, headed by Louceny Camara.

It should be noted that the site of the kick-off of the march, the September 28 stadium, is the same place where the September 28, 2009 massacre by government force occurreds. Further, two of the most notorious perpetrators of the massacre, Tiegboro Camara and Claude Pivi, are in the employ of Alpha Conde.

-Mouctar Diallo, a Peul politician who helped organize the Tuesday march decried the police’s actions, saying that they deliberately blocked the movement of people in Peul neighborhoods.: “Yesterday the government promised to ensure the security of our peaceful march, but in fact what we are now witnessing is an assault by the gendarmerie exclusively on neighborhoods that are favorable to the opposition,” said Diallo.

Guinea: Fear of Death Squad Action Against Opposition Party Leaders, Plus Conde Due to Meet with Obama in DC, July 29

Guinean websites are reporting that leaders of parties in opposition to Alpha Conde may be targets of government death squads.

The UFDG, party of Cellou Dalein Diallo, reports on its website there is growing evidence that the lives of opposition leader are in serious danger.  UFDG is in possession of a “blacklist,” established by the government, that contains the names of at least five opposition leaders to be targeted.  They are as follows:

1.       Mouctar Diallo, Président du parti « Nouvelles Forces Démocratiques » (NFD) ;

2.       Etienne Soropogui, Vice-Présidents des NFD ;

3.       Dr Faya Millimono, Directeur de Campagne (2010) du parti « Nouvelles Générations pour la République » (NGR) ;
