Although the protests were called off for today and the main organizer for CST said that they need to find other ways to bring about their desired change, I hope that they do not just give up. I hope that they continue taking to the streets ahead of October so that when the election comes, the Togolese can choose the government that they want, with no corruption, no fraud, and no voter intimidation.
