Nigerians Make History: Protest for Justice in 20 Countries

History was made this past Friday June 29th. For the first time ever, Nigerians around the globe rose up in one voice to protest the inhumane killing of Osamuyi Aikpitanhi by Spanish Authorities and also put the world on notice. Protest letters were concurrently delivered to Spanish Authorities in Madrid, Valencia and to Spanish embassies in Sweden, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Nigeria, UK, Hungary, Canada, Switzerland, Brazil and the USA. The following are summaries of the protest around the world.>>>>>

Next Steps:

1. We are engaging high-powered lawyers to represent the Aikpitanhi family to get adequate compensation and punitive damages from the Spanish Government.
2. We are accepting donations for the Aikpitanhi family. Please visit nigeriavillagesquare.com if you're inclined
3. We will closely follow up on the Federal Government's investigation into this matter.

Thanks for helping make this happen. Stay tuned for more projects that will make us a proud people.

Global protest against the inhumane killing of Osamuyiwa Aikpitanhi

Dear all!

Information on the killing of Osamuyiwa Aikpitanhi during a forced deportation from Spain to Nigeria was already sent to the e-mail lists. During the last weeks, something happened.

The Nigeria Village Square, a virtual village square for Nigerians and Friends of Nigeria all over the world, published a Protest Note to Spanish Authorities, which is signed by more then 3.000 people until now.

They write on their webpage: http://www.zookoda.com/go/?474C43455B54424E425A4957414556525F48

"Protest Note will be delivered to Spanish embassies around the globe at NOON on FRIDAY June 29th We have volunteers in Cyprus, Sweden, Dublin, Ireland; Cairo, Egypt; Istanbul Turkey; Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; Germany; Switzerland; Ottawa Canada; South Africa; Brazil; Paris France; Spain; Italy; Nigeria; UK; USA., Shanghai China; Vienna Austria; Dakar, Senegal, Malaysia, and more Do you want to coordinate your city? PM Admin"

There is a call to "Participate in the protest to Spanish authorities on the inhumane killing of Osamuyiwa Aikpitanhi" It's not so much time left until friday, but if u like to participate in this action, it would be nice:

One of the coordinators wrote in an email: "We will be extremely delighted if your members could help deliver the letter in Vienna and in other European countries."

I asked about the updates on the actions told that i can send the information to other people in europe (this list). The answer: "Please let me know in which other countries your members are, so we can coordinate with you. We will also need your help in getting media coverage all across Europe and beyond."

If u like to participate in this coordinated action, please contact nigeriavillagesquare@gmail.com
