The #OccupyNigeria movement is our response to the government. Its Wikipedia page gives some idea of the situation and its effect on the nation:
We assert our right to occupy Nigeria because we are Nigeria; we are the people, we are the country. We assert our right to demand fair treatment that is sensitive to our needs and enables an acceptable standard of living. We assert our right to a country that seeks to make our lives better and more stable, not harder and more chaotic.
Mass protests and a nationwide strike are scheduled to start today in Nigeria. I know some people are doubtful that anything will change, but I choose to believe that this situation must be turned around. I choose to believe that the people are finally taking a stand to halt oppression and insenstivity, to actively influence government policies, to resist bowing their heads and “coping” because they feel they can’t do anything. They can do something, and they’re doing it by demonstrating against an unfair action.
