Lome - Women in the civil rights group "Let's Save Togo" said they will have a week long sex strike to demand the resignation of President Faure Gnassingb.

The plan to withhold sex from their husbands for a week will start on Monday, said Isabelle Ameganvi , leader of the group's women's wing.

Ameganvi, a lawyer, told the AP that her group is following the example of Liberia's women who used a sex strike in 2003 to campaign for peace.

The women's protest is part of a campaign by a coalition against Gnassingb. The opposition group National Alliance for Change held a peaceful demonstration against the president on Saturday.

Gnassingb has been in power since 2005, following the death of his father Gnassingb Eyadema who ruled the West African country for 38 years.
