Upendra Singh, regional Guide for the northeastern US, reports about the protests in front of the Gabon diplomatic missions
in Washington DC and New York City:
"For us protesting peacefully in the cold weather in two major cities, it was such a heartwarming experience to be in action to free Jean Rene Ogoula in Gabon, one of the Raelian Guides there.
Both our teams started the protest at 1pm. We spoke with people, held our posters, and gave out flyers proudly as people walked in and out of the Gabonese Embassy/Consulate Office.
What was interesting in both cities was that the staff and the visitors were very curious about what we were doing, and they wanted to know more. The ambassador (in DC) and the consul (in NYC) now have our letters in their hands.
In NYC, our team got interviewed by a journalist who shared the same building with the consulate. In Washington, DC, the florist who was going in and out of the embassy tipped
us off that the letter was being "discussed". She said 'it's working!' :) Very soon a staff form the embassy came out with his iPad and started taking our pictures!
We are all proud to be part of this peaceful global revolution. Love and support to our dear brother Jean in Gabon. We are demanding his immediate release from jail."
