Millions of people are facing starvation in Niger. Are we to believe that this is another “natural” disaster, as the media would like us to? The fact is that there is food available in the markets of Niger, but the people cannot afford to buy it. Again, profit comes before the lives of the poor.
A series of very successful rallies have been taking place all over Nigeria against the fuel price hike. Here we provide the pdf format of the article we published earlier, Nigeria: Endless fuel price hikes. This was widely distributed at the Lagos rally, and we are making it available as a PDF file for anyone to print out.
Yesterday there was a
gigantic rally of protest in Lagos. The mood of anger simmering below the

Nigeria. This process marks the beginning of the end of the Obasanjo regime.
Nigeria is poised to join the many other countries where the masses have
successfully overthrown rotten regimes that are there only to serve the rich.
