Alliance Guinea was founded in the aftermath of the masacres of September 28, 2009 , a day when the military brutally cracked down on tens of thousands of unarmed pro-democracy protestors, killing at least 150 people, wounding over 1200, and viciously raping more than 100 women and girls. This alliance of Guineans and friends of Guinea was founded in honor of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day and to promote what our sisters and brothers were fighting for: the right of all citizens to self-determination and fundamental human rights.Alliance Guinea’s Mission: To promote democracy, human rights, and unity in Guinea.
