RE: Living in terror: My government is a terrorist organisation

in Hive Naija9 months ago

thanks for sharing, I am gonna share this with friends in various countries.

It's a little confusing cause i don't know much about the history and politics and demographics of Nigeria at all, I'm piecing it together now. I am not able to spend so much time researching but I give a little bit of time to Nigeria every day right now.

Of course I want to give my attention to other places like Thailand and Congo and Belarus, there are so many things happening in the world, but I have you guys right in front of me at Hive and I feel it's my job to focus more on Nigeria as it's suddenly closer than ever at Hive.

I've experienced protests and talked to protesters in a few countries over the years....it's ridiculous how similar the tactics are everywhere. I really feel the best chance we have to fix this worlds problems is to change the way we use the internet to connect with each other more...that is my main goal at Hive now.

Sort:  

The internet was immense in this particular protest. Sadly, the worst is yet to come. The country is in turmoil because the people they sent to disrupt the peaceful movement are out of control. They've weaponised poverty for so long and now it is working against them.

The only sad thing about this situation is that the politicians don't suffer. It is the common people that bear the brunt of the problem and at the end of the day, they will say it is because of the protests

sure....it's definitely not a pretty situation and there are always people trying to steer protests in a direction that benefits them, or to hijack them.
it happened in Egypt and other countries in the middle east. Hopefully we can learn the lesson from that...I don't know what it will take to prevent a similar situation but I believe it must at least be possible to reach a better situation thanks to these protests.

I think it is a function of the type of leadership. Some people cling on to power and see criticism as a threat to power. Fundamentally, an idiot
