Occupy-Nigeria Los Angeles Protest Scheduled For Jan 14

London protets last week
By SaharaReporters, New York

Nigerians in Southern California (NISC) have announced a solidarity meeting for Saturday,
January 14 to decry the oil subsidy removal by the government of President Goodluck Jonathan

In a statement, today, the group sent a specific message to Mr. Jonathan, reminding him that “A
leader who demands loyalty, but offers nothing in return builds tyranny; and tyranny offers
nothing but failure. Empower every citizen, and you will gain strength. Offer security and
justice in the form of liberty, allowing every citizen to be safe from conviction without cause or
prison without charge - to work, eat, and live on the sweat of his or her own brow – and you
will be great. Not only will you receive the loyalty of your people, but their love as well. GEJ,
this is your chance to be great - don't waste it. Lead from the heart.”

Describing the hardship that removal of the oil subsidy removal will bring to the average
Nigerian, NISC said the government should:
• Revamp all the refineries and build new ones;
• Provide regular power supply;
• Provide public transportation systems such as railways;
• Repair the roads;
• Eliminate the corruption associated with supply and distribution of petroleum products in
the downstream sector of the oil industry;
• Trim excess wages and entitlements allocated to high government officials;
• Adhere to the rule of law;
• Be transparent;
• Be accountable;
• Govern well; and
• Lead by example

Saturday’s rally, to which all Nigerians and their friends are invited, will hold at10 A.M at:
6430 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028-7906 (Near CNN Building).

Your children and unborn children (Politicians) will receive all the punishment from GOD

Oil subsidy removal

Remember Ghadafi, Mubarak and Ben Ali lost their legitimacy because they refused to listen to the cry of the people . Remember how they rented crowd and use police brutality to defend their anti people policy . Remember how these rulers ended. President Jonathan, no matter how good u meant listen to the voice of the masses of Nigeria.

This is not only subsidy

Nigerians are not tired of poverty yeah, when they are.... They'll know what to do. This is our golden moment to carry out revolution, I salute all my fellow Nigerians who are out there to make their voices heard. The world is listerning to You this is the time to fight corruption in Nigeria, and clean up our Nation, like Ghana did many years ago, today Nigerians runs to Ghana for s better life. Everyone, both home and abroad should join hands keys clean up. This is not about fuel subsidy but about getting rid of corruption, its about turning a new page in the history of our Country, its about redeeming out shattering image, its about a getting rid of the old wilds who has been terrorizing our economy and foreignty; Any Nigerian who doesn't support this move is Nothing but a hypocrite. Arise fellow Nigeria, You have the world support. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

selling what belongs to all to themselves

Selling what belongs to all to themselves, is not new to some leaders who want to continue acquiring. I agree with you let both the buyers and the sellers of government properties be brought to book and our properties be returned. It is stealing and a crime to say the least.

correction of oil subsidy

Impeaching GEJ is of no point if those who have been around before GEJ join politics are still there. All we want is those who diverted money should bring the money back. If they run abroad inter-pol will be used to catch them and their account frozen. Let's rid the nation of corruption first before talking of diverting subsidy money for other uses otherwise this money will be divided by this group of people as usual. LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

Surrounded by wolves

President Goodluck Jonathan was a nice man I voted for him for nothing because I believe no one from his region has headed Nigeria before, so he should be given a chance. Unfortunately for GEJ he was not groomed enough to know that he's surrounded by wolves. Those who organized million people match for/against Abacha still hovering around the corridor of Aso rock. God help us. I can never blame you Mr. President only God will see you through. Just take it easy and pray for God's guidance.

Nigeria Oil subsidy removal

I'l like to thank God and those who created internet. That electronic stuff is created for Africa and its citizenry who have been exploited over the years and could not talk for lack of information. Now is the time that God wants to take vengeance against oppressors. Pls my people and people of the world do not despire,continue in the struggle for the liberation of the masses. In the past the NLC officials have always been bribed to give up the struggle but now this is beyond the NLC, in case they finally get bribed and NLC withdraws from the struggle the rest of us should continue until our requests are met. We are tired of being deceived by only these few people who have made themselves permanent residence in the corridor of power. We shall not relent whether or not NLC gives up. Corruption has to be dealt with now or never. Transparency is of paramount importance in this issue. God bless our great nation Nigeria.

YOU SHULD SEE THIS

follow follow

looking at yourslf, I see in you those fearful Nigerians who hardly can afford a square meal and yet afraid to support a change

Thank

The average Nigerian have sacrifice more than enough for this country to be great but our leaders are just too selfish to sacrifice a step in the right direction. Please, support us to erode these bunch of people out of our system.

"power currupt and apsolute power currupt absolutely"

That is the case of our president

@KULKAT May GOD grant you all you wish for

Corruption has eaten up the brains of every Nigerian. I bet you,some of those Nigerians protesting in Los Angeles,can not pass corruption detective test. GEJ was dumb in the timing of the fuel subsidy removal without restructuring the nations refineries and those protesting over fuel subsidy are engaged in the nations mistaken priorities.How can two wrongs make a right? Why are there no protest all over Nigeria in regards the unjust killings of Christians/Muslims? Those Nigerians protesting in the USA are as corrupt as their fellow counter-parts in Nigeria's National Assembly . After all, most of those senators in Nigeria have dual citizenship of either US or else where. If you oppose my opinion show me your solution?

Nigeria! Curruption free zone.

We need to focus our attention more on Curruption. Curruption is our number one enemy not the government. We Nigerian are currupt, we become part of the system and we make the government currupt. We Nigerians as a whole are responssible for the curruption.  Everyone that ever a bought government property must be made to give it back.

Every Nigerian  that bought government property must not only give it back, who ever sold it must go to jail as well.

Everyone that  profited from oil subsidy must give it back to the people.

We must declared Nigeria a CURRUPTION FREE ZONE.

Everyone must do his or her part. I promise not to give bribe to anyone anymore for anything.

Can you make the same promise?

On the oil subsidy removal

Please, leave GEJ alone. What he has done is the right thing. It is long overdue. The oil cabal and their cronies are the ones confusing the ordinary Nigerians to take to the street. It will amaze everyone to know that if put to vote; those supporting the removal may be more than those opposing it. Let us give him a chance and watch him over a couple of months.
If NLC, TUC & OTHER PRESSURE GROUPS love the poor masses of this country (as they want me to believe), why have they not organized a nationwide protest against the boko haram? A lot of Nigerians are been murdered in cold blood across the North, even in the various churches.
I think I see selfishness in all these, and the NLC and TUC are become political tools to fight government unjustly.

Goodluck is tyrant

Certainly,Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is a tyrant.He was a man of God-pastor before and now,a devil.

Fuel subsidy Removal

I appreciate the concern and struggle of all Nigerians both home and abroad. There can be no better opportunity for govenment to correct the anomalies and gross enefficiencies in the system than now. In addition to the proposals mentioned by Nigerians resident in California, USA, Government should make public offices less attractive so only those who genuinely want to serve the public will occupy the offices.

ACTUALIZATION OF NIGERIA'S DOOM

I want the President to hardened his mind and block his ears from hearing so that the Predicted doom of Nigeria will come to pass. I can see it is already happening, the blood of the innocents already massacred for this fraud of a country will not rest untill it haunt down those murderers. They have murdered sleep, so they will never find sleep, President Jonathan has caught the bug, he is living the transformation dream, from a naive zoologist to a Nebuchadnnezer. His admnistration will usher in the death of the amalgamated geographical entity called Nigeria. May the Prediction already prophesised come to pass during the reign of Goodluck Ebelemi Jonathan. Amen.

subsidy removal

Corrupt what?Did i hear ELIMINATE CORRUPTION?Not Jonathan and his cohorts and I think this is an invitation for our ZOMBIES to take over again.

PERFECT

IF THEY DO THESE, WHO ELSE WILL PROTEST?
