Nigeria: Eyewitness report by arrested Democratic Socialist Movement organiser

A peaceful protest called by activists on Saturday 13 February to protest the decision to reopen Lekki tollgate to business was openly and brutally repressed. This new repression following widespread protest against police brutality last year, has unmasked the Buhari government as a major enabler of police brutality and repression.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.
