Crunch Time in Ivory Coast (part 2)

It’s crunch time in Ivory Coast. The opposition has planned a march on state television for Thursday. From his U.N.-guarded hotel that serves as headquarters, Alassane Ouattara may have the backing of the international community but Laurent Gbagbo remains in control of the loyalist army as well as cocoa, oil and other main sources of revenue. Who will blink first, and can a bloodbath be avoided?

A debate with François Picard and guests

Douglas YATES, Professor of Political Science at the American University of Paris
Cébastien GNAHORE, Representative of the Independent Electoral Commission of Nord Pas-de-Calais and President of the Ivorian community in Nord Pas-de-Calais
Germain YAO, Member of the RHDP, in charge of international relations
