BETWEEN PROTEST AND INSURRECTION
So let’s try to check the THIN line between protest and insurrection. I hope to keep it as simple as possible.
Since the SHOCK I have been having about how USA is handling this #CapitolRiot, I’ve thought about clarification of protest’s legitimacy
A protest: “a statement or action expressing disapproval of or objection to something.”
Insurrection: “a violent uprising against an authority or government.”
So even by definition, they don’t look or sound the same. Was #EndSARS as a case study a protest or an insurrection? What is the thin line to measure this protest or insurrection then?
No, don’t let us destroy the gain of #EndSARS as a PROTEST.
When it started, it was a protest. How do you know a protest? “action expressing disapproval of or objection to something.” It was INITIALLY DEFINED!
So when did this clearly defined action expressing disapproval of or objection to SARS and Police brutality EXPIRE pls? At that point when the purpose was achieved. QED.
The purpose: End SAR.
The Action: Protest
The Result: SARS DISSOLVED!
When did it become an INSURRECTION: At that point when every action of #EndSARS leaders & supporters began to show “a violent uprising against an authority or government.” When did that happen? When YOU said they must not leave the street until you end BAD GOVERNANCE. HOW??
At that point that initial victory of the protest suddenly gave rise to this arrogance of SORO SOKE, “you messed up with the wrong generation”, #BuhariMustGo, “#EndBadGovernance before we leave the street” You know I warned you about wasting the victory?
Yes, at that point that all of YOU became the darling of CNN interview INCITING people never to leave the street like Falz & Aisha did (ayam afraid of dem🤣). At that point of saying it’s not just about #EndSARS but EVERYTHING MUST END.
At that point of saying Buhari MUST COME🤪
The whole CONCEPT of PROTEST & it’s legitimacy about #EndSARS ended when the IGP came of TV to dissolve the SARS unit on the 11th, 12th the C-inC came on TV to repeat the same. 12th @jidesanwoolu took demands to Abuja & #5For5 was accepted & implementation began. PROTEST ENDED!
From the point your SORO SOKE leaders of leaderless group began to push you on insisting “we must end this bad governance” & political game began to surface AFTER the initial demands have been met, everyone with COMMON SENSE knew it would never end well..INSURRECTION!
So, while America is already out dealing with PEACEFUL PROTESTERS who neither carried guns or any dangerous weapon to #CapitolRiots, those who led INSURRECTION in Nigeria that should be in jail already are on @LagosSarsPanel, on TV inciting people more, or on @CNN as CELEBRITIES.
You see, Protest & Insurrection aren’t the same, it can easily be differentiated.
#CapitolRiot wanted to stop legitimate government from being inaugurated. #EndSARS Insurrectionists wanted to stop legitimate government already in power.
The same people trended #BuhariMustGo abi😳
