Things are still pretty chaotic in Nigeria, in response to the recent announcement that fuel subsidies were going to be eradicated, and now protesters outside the troubled nation are supporting their compatriots and protesting against what they consider an extreme injustice to the citizens of one of the most populous countries in Africa.
From Accra, Ghana to New York City, protesters are making it clear that just because they are not physically on the battlefield doesn’t mean their voices can’t or shouldn’t be heard. An unhappy but spirited group gathered outside the Nigerian Consulate in New York City on Tuesday and yesterday and they probably will be back today.
It’s quite admirable to see the strong support and solidarity being formed all over the world in response to events that can potentially cripple an already wobbly nation.
Not sure how much the worldwide demonstration will help but it will show the powers that be that their unfair actions are not going unnoticed.
