A #FreeZakzaky protest march has been called for today Friday 15th December, 2017 in front of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland to mark the second year anniversary since the horrific attacks by the Nigerian army in Zaria, Nigeria.
The protest march is scheduled to hold from 1:00pm to 3:00pm local time, and will call for the immediate release of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, violently arrested in the wake of that brutal but unprovoked attack by the army, but remains in detention despite the Nigerian judiciary ordered for his immediate release. The protest will also demand for an end to unprovoked attacks by the Nigerian authorities on peace-loving Shia Muslims in Nigeria.
Invitation letters calling for participation have since been circulated in both French and English. A copy of the English invitation is reproduced below:
Tuesday December 12th 2017 marks two years since the revered scholar Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky was violently taken into custody by the Nigerian military in Zaria, Nigeria, after a brutal attack where over 300 of Sheikh Zakzaky’s followers were killed.
Whereas the Nigerian judiciary ordered his immediate release earlier this month, Sheikh Zakzaky remains in custody today.
We invite you to join us in a peaceful protest to demand the release of Sheikh Zakzaky and en end to unprovoked attacks on peace-loving Shia Muslims in Nigeria on Friday 15th December from 1pm to 3pm in front of the United Nations (broken chair).
We look forward to your attendance.
