The Struggle for Freedom in Togo Continues
Yesterday, the government of Togo reopened the primary and secondary schools that were closed a week ago in the wake of police violence against demonstrators that left two dead. In addition to the 12 year old boy shot in Dapaong, a 22 year old student died of cardiac arrest after being hospitalized for wounds sustained during the protests. Many teachers, however, have boycotted returning to work adding to their demands that the Togolese security forces responsible for the two deaths be brought to justice.
