Climate Protesters Block Boris Johnson, UK Prime Minister's Convoy by obafemee80(m): 8:43pm On Jul 25, 2019

Boris Johnson’s motorcade was briefly blocked by climate protesters while on his way to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen before he officially become Prime Minister.



The police motorbikes and car flanking the incoming prime minister’s armoured Jaguar XJ Sentinel appeared to be caught off guard by the Greenpeace protesters who held hands to block the path of Boris Johnson.



The police along with Range Rover escort SUV quickly rushed to the scene to disperse the protesters before Johnson’s car was eventually able to get through.

Unlike the motorcades of United States and Russian President that boasts of dozens of armoured cars and motorbikes, UK Prime Minister's convoy only has few police motorbikes and two to three other SUVs.



The Greenpeace demonstrators had planned to hand the incoming Prime Minister a letter asking him to recognise there is a climate emergency. The police also confirmed that no arrest was made during the protest.

The question is --- Can demonstrators block the convoy of any African President be it a peaceful protest or a violent one?

Protests in Nigeria, whether peaceful or violent always end in death. Its the fastest way to meet with your creator.

Its either you're tear-gassed, severely beaten or shot by our trigger-happy Police, pummelled and brutalized by soldiers or killed by stray bullets. As a matter of fact, protesting in Nigeria should be included in 1000 ways to die.

Here in Nigeria the news will read something like this. 35 dead, hundreds injured as police open fire on unarmed protesters.

IGP will vow to bring the killer policemen to book.
Nigerian youth will go violent on social media.
Senate will feature the incident in one of their sessions.
Buhari would tell those that don't like Nigeria to park their load and go.
Femi falana will release statement.
tinubu will blame Evans.
IPOB will release statement.
Obasanjo will write letter.
Afenifere will release statement.

then the case will dissolve like all others before it.

me I'm tired of this country o I want someone to take me out of here even if it's Ghana I'll manage it.

In Nigeria, even if the pritest isnt disruptive, even if the police has been able to overpower and disperse the protesters, they somehow just have a way to still level their rifle to release a live fatal bullet. It's a tradition done just to fulfil all righteousness.

Just because some group of people block road they normally block during their religion processes. And common chief of Army staff felt that his life is more important that thousands of life. Killed them without remorse and nothing happened. cry
