Video: Toga Africa Solidarity - A protest in Washington DC on 3.25.10

I filmed this interview while in DC last March.
I intended to post this much sooner to help spread their message and voice for justice.
It was an interview I did with a group standing on the park across from the White House.

These were folks, who traveled from all over the US in representing Toga Africa, and they were trying to get a meeting with Obama regarding the Human rights violations and injustice that is going on and has been for too long.

I just happened to be walking by when I noticed they had signs a message to say.
I asked a few sign holders what it was about and thus is this recording from that day:

What I understand and have read is that the country has been oppressed and violently ruled by
one particular family / military for around 43 years.

There is not much information on Toga when I just searched the words "Toga Africa"...

But when I added the search words "human rights violations" along with "Toga Afric" lots of links popped up.

Trying to share what Im learning - please learn and share what you know about Toga' struggle for justice with others.

In Solidarity
