Togo....in Africa

[Updated : He resigned, maybe internationl SHAME on HIM, and accepts democratic votes for a new president. Constitution changed and all stuffs are forgotten.]
Faure Essozimna GNASSINGBE, is the new president of Togo after long-distance-President Eyadema Gnassingbe died beginning of February. Yes !! same name, it's his son, who is not elected, you're right.
Military high command annonced it hours later father died, and Parliament just adapted the blocking laws and re-amend the Constitution to help Son becoming new president until 2008.

In Paris, immediatly Togolese people rallied in the street and protest at Gnassingbe's seizure of power.
Top ressource about TOGO :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Togo where we can discover the general anthem of Togo : Salut à toi, pays de nos aïeux - Hail to thee, land of our forefathers
illustrated by the recent events : this anthem is still honored !

The current mood of meeting at www.imood.comIt's so cold today. Snow is everywhere in France, here in Marseille it's sunny yes OK but sssooooo cold (for me, sorry for people living in Canada,..)
