Mick Barry TD Demands Release Of 'Revolution Now' Protesters by Tissaia(f): 5:19pm On Aug 05, 2020
Irish Politician Writes Nigerian Ambassador To Ireland, Demands Immediate Release Of #RevolutionNow Protesters

Mick Barry TD, an Irish politician and member of the Socialist Party, has condemned the arrest of #RevolutionNow protesters in Nigeria by security agent and demanded their immediate release.

Barry in a letter to Dr Uzoma Emenike, Nigerian Ambassador to Ireland, said it was sad that young people protesting against state repression and the dire economic conditions that currently prevail in Nigeria were oppressed in such brutal ways.

The letter reads, “Dear Ambassador, further to my phone call earlier today with Victor Adeleke,.the Deputy Head of Mission at the Nigerian Embassy, I wish to convey to you in writing my protest at the arrest of peaceful protestors in Osogbo, Abuja and Lagos.


Mick Barry TD
“I have received disturbing reports (including video footage) from Nigeria of the arrest and brutal attack on peaceful protestors on 5 August by members of the Department of State Services. I am aware that Dunnex Samuel, a member of the Movement for a Socialist Alternative and student leader at the Obafemi Awolowo University, along with Mandate, Oguntola Sunday and other protesters were whisked away to an unknown location by the DSS in Osogbo. I have also received reports of similar arrests and brutal attacks on peaceful protestors occurring in Abuja and Lagos, at the hands of the police, and that protestors are now being held in Area F police station in Lagos.

“It is completely unacceptable that young people protesting against state repression and the dire economic conditions that currently prevail in Nigeria should be oppressed in this brutal way. I demand the immediate and unconditional release of Dunnex Samuel and all of the other protestors and intend to make a public statement on this issue to bring this serious matter to the attention of the Irish public and the Nigerian Diaspora.”

Heavily-armed security agents on Wednesday across major cities in Nigeria clamped down on peaceful demonstrators participating in the #RevolutionNow protests to demand better governance from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Verdict: Nigeria currently lacks US, everyone seems to be enjoying the suffering and are comfortable with their N5 daily income, fueling their gen and others.... They all want to remain In their comfort zone doing nothing... If this protest had more support, cell for son full by now.

Ireland have no say in the affairs of a sovereign nation like Nigeria. Who's Ireland? Who's Berry? No government in the world folds it's arms to allow revolution happened to it,but peaceful protest is allowed as enshrined in our constitution. Revolution is equivalent of coup de 'ate on a democratically elected government. Look at how Egypt is today after the killing of Mouse! Try revolution in the USA not a peaceful protest and wait for Trump's action with fire and brimstone.

Some of your comments above is so childish and full of arrogance! Someone cannot protest in this country again? The hard/harsh dire economic conditions of this current administration is enough reason for any people to protest!

It is an irony to watch things play out these times considering the APC stages many protests in different forms during the PDP rule and nobody was hurt nor arrested. At some point, the PDP gave police escorts to align with protesters and their grievances! Even Mr Buhari protested on several occasions and nobody questioned him!

The precedence of this administration will bring anarchy and upheaval of care if not taken. We are not in a military rule, the people have the right to protest and protest they will!!

Come and help us release them nau grin, is like something is wrong with this man head.
First of all, fun little tidbit, a revolution is if its successful. A rebellion is if it fails. So , it has to succeed. Well, looking at history, it normally takes a while to build up. The changes wont happen one day and the next angered mobs with pitchforks and torches are standing at the gates of the presidential palace. It also needs a strong authority figure to inspire and lead them to victory, and it has to be popular. The White Russians (not racist, thats their name) lost against the Reds cos they didnt have popular support. The French revolution succeeded cos EVERYONE but the rich were pissed off.
So Nigerians agitating for revolution should use their heads.

Re: Mick Barry TD Demands Release Of 'Revolution Now' Protesters by Peace666: 8:09am On Aug 06, 2020
With what's happening in this country i just wish everyone can speak out.

If people act aggressively like those in Asia or other parts of the world with protests against the bad leadership of this country and not just APC this time, there would be real change.

But what can i say? 78% of the citizens of this country is corrupt.

Imagine sending a 10yr old Tunde to go buy fuel of 1000 naira for me outside.

He came back empty handed claiming he lost the money.

Only for his friend Aminu to come looking for him minutes later with that same N1000 I gave Tunde.

I questioned him and he said Tunde gave him the money to keep for him but his mum saw it and then asked him to return it.


Its in the blood.
