Guinea: Victory over Dictatorship?

Seckasysteme comments on the end of a national strike in Guinea last week that resulted in the signing of an encouraging agreement with the Lansana Conte regime (Fr): “The 17 days of violence with their arrests, killings, persecutions and sacrifices of all sorts were worth it for the valliant people of Guinea. Forever and especially since 1957, date of the Independence of Guinea, never have Guineans been so close to the end of the tunnel after 50 years of dictatorship by Sekou Toure and Lansana Conte.” (No permalink available; link is to blog home page.)
