Since Guinea gained its independence from France, in 1958, the country has since been led by ruthless and incompetent regimes, caracterised by dictatorships. The 1st President, Sékou Touré, came to power in 1958 and died while in power in 1984.
General Lansana Conté took over after a coup and reigned until when he died in December 2008. Few hours after Conté's death, a junta, led by Colonel Moussa Dadis Camara seized power and formed a Government of Transition. The junta promised to organise, in six (6) months, free and fair elections in which the junta and the members of the Government of Transition will be not take part.
As the junta leader started breaking his promise not to take part in the elections, the political parties and the civil society organised, on 28th September 2009, a meeting in Conakry, at the Stadium of 28th September. Several thousands of people attended the meeting.
While the people were in the stadium, the army barged in and fired on the civilians, killing over 150 people and injuring thousands more. Several women were tortured, publicly rapped and also abducted for the same purpose. This was denounced by the whole international community and the crimes were considered as crimes against humanity.
This situation created a crisis. Early December 2009, the leader of the junta survived from an attempt on his life. In January 2010, the Agreement between the junta, the Civil Society and the Political Parties was signed in Ouagadougou, under the mediation of Blaise Compaoré, president of Burkina Faso. Under the Agreement, free and fair presidential elections in which the junta and the members of the new Government of Transition must not take part must be organised in six (6) months.
The first round of the Presidential Elections took place on 27th June 2010 and after over four months of delay, the second round was held on 7th November 2010.
The Florida State University chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law International Fraternity will be holding a state conference for the Florida chapters from March 28th, 2008 - March 30th, 2008. The chapter will be charging its members $40 to attend the conference.
During the conference, those participating in mock trial will not be able to attend the dinner on Friday night, nor will they be able to attend the various activities and speakers on Saturday aside from the banquet and social, however they are still being asked to pay for all of the events. The members of mock trial are asking to pay only for the amount of the banquet.
Many members of the Leadership Board have also contributed a great amount to the conference and as a result are asking for a reduced rate of $20. The Executive Board may determine whom the "contributing members" of the Leadership Board are.
However, if a question results about whom is considered a "contributing member" of the Leadership Board, the Leadership Board reserves the right to call for a vote to decide.
The grand theft auto series has been one of the most popular sagas to date. It has been an excellent experience. However, with the new title, GTA Vice City, I was informed it would not be online. That is what everyone is begging for. So we come here to request that rockstar either make the game online or create a GTA online.
If Rockstar decided to do this, it would help PS2 internet make an earlier debut. That would surely make the console the ALPHA system. That is all PS2 needs is a game like this, with the pleasures of multiplayer capabilities
