Ferloo.com blog hails the civic spirit [1] [fr] of the 23 June Movement protesters (M23) in Dakar : “Under a scorching heat,the place de l'Obélisque demonstrators drank heaps of water as well as cold and hot drinks. It's a rare fact, not to pass unnoticed: they picked up and threw in the  trash cans thousands of plastic bags, paper cups and empty bottles.”
