Yesterday, 9/2, at least 74,700 protesters took part in dozens of protests around #HK: secondary & university student strike rallies, general strike rally, medical workers at several hospitals, students at dozens of schools, Mong Kok police station. Not bad for a rainy day.
In all now, 7,889,781 demonstrators have taken part in at least 83 demonstrations in the #HK freedom movement of the summer of 2019. medium.com/@KongTsungGan/…
That's a conservative estimate, given that there are no precise head counts for 19 of those protests & they're therefore not included in that total of 7,889,781. Just since last Thursday, hundreds of thousands of #HK people have participated in 7 major protests.

Before these 45, only 1 of the 199 arrested in relation to #HK protests had reportedly been charged. The 44 'riot' charges is a very significant development. It is clearly part of the #CCP & #HK govt & police strategy for ending the 8-weeks-long protests:
First, ban as many protests as possible (2 so far). Second, #CCP, #HK govt & police speak out in unison about 'violence', 'rule of law' & 'the bottom line'. Third, arrest people in large numbers & immediately charge them with serious offenses w potential long prison sentences.

Majority of Nigerians were not alive when the events of June 12 unfolded. These 2 men below were evil personified. The one wanted to perpetuate himself in power while the other lent himself to evil. It culminated in the evil rule of Abacha and death of MKO #June12 #DemocracyDay
After years of rigmarole and deceit, the one agreed to elections which took place. The other in connivance with the one, set up the "Association for Better Nigeria". ABN procured a never before heard of midnight injunction from a criminal Judge that the one used to annul June12
When The Evil One, the man who took pleasure in being addressed as the "Evil Genius" annulled the elections, there was an uproar of unprecedented proportions and he was forced to "step aside". A term he coined to avoid the disgrace of being forced out

Please nobody should abuse my late father here o, I didn't come to your page to comment: All this sudden noise and write up to show that "Buhari was playing politics"......

When did it become a crime for politicians to play politics?
Will it be wrong to develop our roads, infrastructure, free education, return oil blocks to d State instead of individuals?
What is this noise all about?
GEJ was voted for by d SW in 2011,d same SW voted for Buhari in 2015,what is all this noise all about d SW going for Buhari?
Obasanjo, d direct beneficiary of #June12 is from the same State with MKO, why didn't he play politics and declare June 12?

Jonathan had opportunity for 5 years to do same, he rather gave Abacha from d North posthumous honor, pardoned Ex-convict from the West, Alams from d South

When did it become a crime for politicians to play politics? Were they not voted in to play politics?
Will it be wrong to develop our roads, infrastructure, free education, return oil blocks to the State instead of individuals? What is this noise all about? GEJ was voted for by the South West in 2011, the same SW voted for PMB in 2015, what is all this noise about SW going 4 PMB?
