Writing Human Rights Off - Bloggers call to Rise Again

Here is my official protest to the unlawful manslaughter of the nigerian man by the name of Osamuyia Aikpitanhi (23) who died on the Iberian flight headed towards nigeria.

He was an illegal immigrant, not an animal

He was a human being with two hands that were tied

Two legs bound as well

He had a head with a mouth like the rest of us, but he was gagged, like an animal prevented from uttering sounds

He had dreams and aspirations too, obviously, for a better life as that would be why he was an immigrant

But the vile and evil minded people, who chose to treat him lesser than their domiciled pets, cut these dreams short

He was put on a plane and covered with a sack, just like a bag of potatoes with no life or soul in it...

He died.

From the evil treatment

From the pain

He died the death even some animals would never face.

Bloggers, we did it with the Nigerian Proclamation....

Pay a tribute to the end of a life

Pay a tribute to a fellow human being

Pay a tribute to the abuse of humanity.

Unbelieveable.
>Sighs< well these are the same guys who brought you the Spanish Inquisition and a whole bunch of slavery-related crimes that we will not even go into at this point.

Perhaps they need a little more "Enlightenment"......
