On Saturday April 11th a large group of Sierra Leoneans coming from as far away as New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Ohio gathered at LaFayette Park in front of the White House in Washington D.C. to protest what they say is the abuse of Sierra Leone’s constitution. The cross section of protesters included members of the Kono Progressive Union, supporters of the SLPP and APC party and Sierra Leonean citizens with no political affiliation. The protest in DC was preceded by a similar protest in London that took place on April 9. These protests are a first of their kind in Sierra Leone’s recent post war history.
