During a protest by the opposition collective "Sauvons Le Togo"
(“Let’s Save Togo”) on August 28 in Togo’s capital Lome, several female demonstrators spontaneously dropped their trousers in front of police forces to provoke them, to the great amusement of fellow protesters, bystanders and journalists.
The day before, the collective had called on its female members to join a week-long “sex strike”
, designed to motivate more men to join them in their fight
against President Faure Gnassingbé. For the moment there is no way of knowing if this appeal to “close their legs”, as local journalists describe it, has been adhered to.
Another demonstration is planned for next Thursday, where this time women have been openly invited to undress.
These two photos, taken on August 28 in Lome, are circulating on social networks.
