Togolese protesters

On Friday, there was a group of protesters identifying itself as the "Demonstration of Togolese Diaspora" in front of the South Loop Post Office. They were singing and carrying signs asking President Bush to help them. I guess they're dissatisfied with the present regime in Togo and are looking for some sort of support from Washington.

UPDATE: Well, I guess they got it. The State Department has cut off all military assistance to Togo and is endorsing sanctions in response to the illegal coup.
