Having finally authorized the NDFC march of this Thursday, October 24, 2019, the power has offered a life-size survey. The street opposes any constitutional change, with or without a third term. This is the message chanted by thousands of Guineans who swept through the streets throughout the country. The monster demonstration is added to the one organized the day before and which saw women protesting the killings.
The motto remains unchanged: no question of a third term for Alpha Conde. The protesters demand that the latter make a public statement to completely bury the project, which, in the opinion of many observers, would threaten the stability of the country and possibly that of the West African subregion.
