A year ago today, @policeng murdered journalist and human rights activist, Alex Ogbu in cold blood during a Shiites protest he was covering. We are in court to seek justice. Here with me is Alex Ogbu’s 2-year old daughter at the FCT High Court today. #justiceforalexogbu
The neoliberal bipartisan establishment wants to focus on reuniting itself in the aftermath of Trump. But the reality is you can’t unite a nation that’s half for white supremacy & half for multiracial democracy anymore than you could unite one that was half slave & half free.
When the @HQNigerianArmy claimed not to be at the Lekki Toll Gate, they forgot there were survivors. Two friends of one of such survivor came to social media to criticize the Army. @fisayosoyombo reveals that the two friends were killed three days apart.

BREAKING: In new letter, 135 civil and human rights groups OPPOSE creation of a new domestic terrorism charge.
Be clear: DOJ already has more than 50 federal statutes it can use to investigate & prosecute individuals who participated in the insurrection.
#ImmigrantsAreEssential, today & everyday.
We are working with the incoming administration to prioritize workers' protections, COVID relief, healthcare, fair wages & citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who call this country home.
A group of us came together during some of the bleakest days of the pandemic and Trump presidency to paint a picture of the future we need and deserve. Now we must work together, with love and fire, to turn it into a lived reality. The stakes are... everything.

#NoamChomsky, former @UN Gen Assembly President @mfespinosaEC, & #BLM co-founder @opalayo are just a few co-signers on a call for a "true pandemic pivot" by our @johnfeffer:
Just spoke with Bobi Wine and team. Their home is still surrounded by the military, and those inside unable to leave. Bobi et. al have had no access to food for days.
How embassies, in-country, have not demanded entry with food is beyond me. A total abdication.
Please don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK
For #HumanRightsDay I joined some powerful friends to call @MBuhari to account for the brutality against #EndSARS protesters. We penned an open letter in @nytimes & will continue to demand justice until all Black Lives Matter. Read, sign, share. 🌍🙏🏾
