Un Américain émet le voeu que son pays aide à l'alternance pacifique au Togo
Guy Bouaka

En réaction à l'appel à une action lancée par M Ayite Gaba, appel que j'ai mis sur plusieurs sites, y compris Togoforum, voici la contribution de M John McCann, une contribution très encourageante. J'espere que nous Togolais, premiers concernés pouvons faire mieux que de penser uniquement aux intérêts mesquins de nos bords politiques.Lisez plutôt. Le texte est en Anglais.


Dear Mr. Wysham:

I am a returned Peace Corps Antrac Volunteer who spent two and a half years in Northern Togo (Timbou and Dapaon) between May 1983 and November 1985.  Like most volunteers, I have wonderful memories of Togo.  I learned a great deal and remain extremely grateful for the opportunity Peace Corps provided me.    Along with good memories, I also remember numerous instances of police brutality and the chilling sound of screams coming from the Dapaon police station at night.  Eyadema's was a regime of fear long before the mass killings of the early 1990s.

Increasingly, Togo seems poised to join its neighbors in bloody anarchy.  If Eyadema succeeds in rigging yet another election, and the economy continues to deteriorate, we may be looking at another Sierra Leone or Liberia.

Please do what you can to ensure a fair and democratic election. (Although with Olympio's exclusion this looks impossible.)  Please use the power of the United
States to ensure that Eyadema's corrupt and brutal regime ends without a descent
into chaos.

Sincerely,
John McCann
