LONDON, Westpapuanews.Org  — African activists from Senegal gathered at Trafalgar Square in London, England on Saturday (05/09/2023) yesterday. They demanded that Senegalese opposition leader Ousmane Sonko, who was detained by the police, be immediately released.

Ousmane Sonko was arrested by armed police for no apparent reason when he was at his home in the capital Dakar, in conjunction with Senegal’s national holiday on Friday (28/7/2023).

Sonko’s lawyer, Juan Branco, said the Senegalese politician was currently locked up in the basement of the courthouse.

Senegalese activists at the demonstration said Senegalese President Macky Sall, who was a French puppet tyrant, was behind Sonko’s arrest by the police.

The activists also rejected ECOWAS’s military intervention in the Republic of Niger, where the French colonial-driven military attack plan was also supported by the tyrant Macky Sall.

Ousmane Sonko and his party, the PASTEF Party, are considered dangerous for the tyrant Macky Sall’s power in Senegal. Macky Sall, who has been in power since 2012, has absolute support from French colonialism.

Ousmane Sonko, who once placed third in the 2019 presidential election, is very popular among the Youth. His supporters believe the charges against him are an attempt by the tyrant Macky Sall to block his candidacy in the 2024 presidential election.

British Papuan activist Serogo Tabuni said the Papuan people represented by Papua Militant International are now standing with the people of Senegal in England demanding the release of Ousmane Sonko.

Senegal is the only country on the African continent which, when led by President Léopold Sédar Senghor, first accepted the Papuan people by opening a representative office for the Free Papua struggle in Dakkar.■
