Let’s take the fight against Dictator Yaya Jammeh to his friends and collaborators in our oppression!
Let us not sponsor our own oppression – Lets hit our oppressors in the pocket!
As you may have already heard, the Senegalese musician, Thione Seck, is preparing for a tour of the United States, beginning in Atlanta on March 21st, 2014. Some of the most loyal fans of Senegalese musicians are Gambians. Unfortunately, some of the most renown and celebrated stars including, Thione Seck, are no friends of Gambia!
Ladies and gentleman; this man is no friend of the suffering people of The Gambia. Thione Seck is an unapologetic supporter and promoter of the Butcher of Kanilai, but he is counting on our slavish and unconditional allegiance and ignorance! It is time to send a strong and unmistakable message to all those who partake in the looting, oppression and rape of the Gambian people and economy.
It is time to make Thione Seck eat his own words when he slapped us in the face with his recent comments and excuse for sleeping with Dictator Jammeh. We need to promote our own, be proud of our own and promote only those who support us. Well, that is a topic for another day!
An economic boycott is one of the most effective and proven tools against Dictator Jammeh. We need to put it to use right away and right now. Please tell your friends and family all over the U.S. This is one opportunity by which we can put our money where our mouths are, or vice versa, so that we can free our people and beleaguered country of Gambia.
For all those associated with promoting Thione Seck, please re-consider your actions and its implications, not to mention the hypocrisy of promoting someone who promotes the Dictator who has his boots on the neck of your own families and friends back in The Gambia!
Excellent campaign, Kabba. I wish we all heed to your plea. It doesn’t cost us a dime and yet collectively we can make a resounding impact.
I cannot understand Gambians. Thione Seck is just like dictator Jammeh. They are both rude beggars. Yahya Jammeh gets most of his help from the EU and he is always rude to the west, if Thione Secka is telling the diaspora, I don’t care about you, why should they attend his show.
