Gambian demonstrators came out in London against Jammeh's regime

London : Wednesday, 20th April 2016 

 

On Wednesday, 20th April 2016, UK based Gambians turned out against Yahya Jammeh's 22 years regime amidst the recent killing of Ebrima Solo Sandeng (the UDP's National Organising Secretary) by Jammeh's forces, and Lawyer Ousainou Darboe's imprisonment along with several members of his United Democratic Party (UDP).

 

The demonstrators started at the Gambian Embassy near Nottinghill Gate Tube Station - located in one of the affluent areas of London before heading to Downing Street, official residence of the British Prime Minister. The turnout was less than expected despite a huge presence of Gambian nationals in London, but those who came to exercise their constitutional rights were united by a single purpose: to oust Yahya Jammeh from political power and put an end to what international human rights organisations describe as : a 22 year reign of terror, dictatorship, secret killings, kidnapping, torture and lack of democracy. Many of the people who actually showed up came from the North of England and the Midlands. Tamsier Joof, reporting for The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio joined the demonstrators and interviewed some of the attendees and organisers.

You can listen to the event and full interview by Tamsier with some of the organisers and demonstraors on our podcast page : www.seereerpodcast.org
