Dear all!

The Nigeria Village Square, a virtual village square for Nigerians and Friends of Nigeria all over the world, published a Protest Note to Spanish Authorities, which is signed by more then 3.000 people until now.

They write on their webpage:

There is a call to "Participate in the protest to Spanish authorities on the inhumane killing of Osamuyiwa Aikpitanhi" It's not so much time left until friday, but if u like to participate in this action, it would be nice:

One of the coordinators wrote in an email: "We will be extremely delighted if your members could help deliver the letter in Vienna and in other European countries."

I asked about the updates on the actions told that i can send the information to other people in europe (this list). The answer: "Please let me know in which other countries your members are, so we can coordinate with you. We will also need your help in getting media coverage all across Europe and beyond."
