1. CDC GAMBIA CALLS FOR PROTEST IN LONDON

The Campaign for Democratic Change Gambia (CDCG) is organizing a protest match in London on November 11, 2013.


Below is a press release issued by the CDCG:

Under the auspices of Campaign for Democratic Change Gambia (CDCG), a number of Gambian groupings in The United Kingdom are holding a protest match in London against recent events in Gambia. These include the unconstitutional and unilateral withdrawal of the Gambia from the Commonwealth of Nations; the Gambian President’s diatribe directed at the Mandinka ethnicity of the Gambia with intent to sow seeds of tribal disharmony; the continuing arrest, abduction and detention of Gambians without due process.

The Demonstration further compliments protests carried out recently by Gambians and friends of the Gambia in Washington DC and New York. The demonstration aims to showcase the Human Rights abuses in Gambia and disregard for The Rule of Law.

Assembly point: Trafalgar Square

Date: 11 November 2013

Time: Midday (12 sharp)

THE LONDON EMBASSY PROTEST REPORTS;

1. Protesters Besiege Gambia’s UK High Commission

Gambians on Monday blocked the entrance to their country’s High Commission in London, England, for four hours, in protest against their government’s bad governance punctuated by gross violations of human rights.


The protest was a response to a call by the Campaign for Democratic Change Gambia (CDCG). Gambians have taken to the streets to express their dissatisfaction against President Yahya Jammeh’s “irresponsible, unilateral and unconstitutional decision to withdraw the Gambia from the Commonwealth of Nations.”

The protest also coincides with the 19th anniversary of the extra-judicial killings of Gambian soldiers on November 11th, 1994. The coupists, purportedly led by the late Lt. Basiru Barrow, were executed in mysterious circumstances. The junta has since refused to publicly release the exact number of executed soldiers.

Dozens of protesters began the protest at Trafalgar Square in Central London before proceeding to the Gambian High Commission situated at 92 Ledbury Road. They found Metropolitan Police Diplomatic protection team already stationed at the Gambian mission. As a result, protesters were barred from entering the Gambian mission complex, let alone laying siege inside.

However, their presence at the front of the mission has disrupted business as usual for at least four hours. Apart from police officers on guard, diplomatic officials were not able to welcome anyone inside. Fearing a repeat of the September 2012 occupation, diplomatic officials shut their doors to business to even those who showed up for appointment. One Portuguese citizen who came for a visa application appointment could not have access to the mission.

During the siege, protesters were chanting slogans such as “Jammeh Must Go; Down, Down Dictator; We’re Gambians; We Don’t Want Yahya Jammeh; Go to Hell Yahya Jammeh.”
