Confrontation at Ivory Coast Embassy Washington

As part of the slowly emerging battle of the embassies around the world between Laurent Gbagbo and Alasanne Ouattara, I was on hand with my video camera for this, the first confrontation of the sort in Washington.

Surprising how much truth was told so quickly and with humor by the protesters to the military guards behind the glass, a situation which removed from the dangers of Ivory Coast seems harmless but reflects a crazy reality of a country with rival presidencies, one backed by his army, the other by half the country and most of the rest of the world after another chaotic African election.
