The current political crisis in Senegal is concerning and deeply impacts the citizens of the country. We recognize the importance of allowing people to protest peacefully, as well as the power of our democracy. At the same time, we must recognize the importance of respectful dialogue and adherence to the law. We ask that all protesters remain calm and respectful, and remind them that violence and unrest will only lead to further suffering and instability. By respecting the Republic, its laws and its citizens, we can work together to create a brighter future for Senegal.
