Abstract:

In January and February 2007, government security forces brutally repressed a nationwide strike initiated by Guinea' most prominent trade unions to protest corruption, bad governance, and deteriorating economic conditions. What began as a peaceful, if somewhat unruly strike, gave way to violence and unrest in the of abuses by security forces and President Conté's breach of an agreement to appoint a consensus prime minister. As told, the crackdown resulted in at least 129 dead and over 1700 wounded, hundreds of them by gunshot. Members of the army, the police, and the gendamerie were involved in incidents of murder, rape, assault, and robbery of unarmed demonstrators and individuals.
