#RevolutionNow: Organisers To Gather Masses, Civil Societies In Lagos On Monday
The Coalition for Revolution has announced that it would gather Nigerians and activists for a mass march in Lagos on Monday in defiance to the Nigerian authorities.
The event will feature members from human rights organisations such as Amnesty International, SERAP, Nigerian Union of Journalists, Enough Is Enough, National Association of Nigerian Students among others.
The Nigerian Government on August 3, 2019, arrested co-convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore, for planning anti-government protests nationwide.
The peaceful protests, which held August 5, 2019 nationwide, witnessed armed repression from the government leading to the detention of many participants.
In a statement on Sunday, CORE said, “In view of the stepping-up of government repression within the past days following the peaceful #RevolutionNow protest, the Coalition for Revolution is organising a working consultative assembly of activists and organisations against the draconian development and the detention of scores of activists in the Department of State Services cells.
“This is in continuation of our popular struggle. Consultation and mass education are necessary in the struggle for change.”
