#OccupyNigeria USA: Solidary protest to hold outside World Bank headquarters

by Hauwa Gambo

To show solidarity with our Nigerian allies who are risking their lives in taking on the #FuelSubsidyRemoval, Nigerians in the US plan to join the NLC strike on Monday with a peaceful protest. 

According to a statement: Much of this oil extracted from Nigeria is destined for U.S. markets. U.S. activists plan to hold a demonstration in solidarity with Occupy Nigeria, the Nigerian “We the People” coalition, and Nigeria’s organised labour sector, all of whom have called for a general strike in Nigeria to protest the soaring price hikes for oil on 9 January, 2012.

The U.S. solidarity demonstration will take place from noon to 1 p.m., outside the headquarters of the World Bank in Washington, DC, at Morrow Park, 1818 H Street, NW.

For those who can arrive earlier, they have been asked to meet at the Occupy DC encampment at 11 a.m. at 15th and K Streets, NW, to march together to the World Bank.
