On 30th November 2021 Citizen Commons International had a Monitoring and Evaluation visit from voice global to assess the From Protest To Action Project.
It was an interactive session to review the Project so far, build on the challenges and brainstorm on the best approaches to a more effective project going forward.
From Protest to Action: Activating our New Nigeria seeks to leverage the increased passion of young Nigerians to demand accountability and from at all levels of government? as well as take forward some of the learnings from the shortcomings of the #EndSARS protests. Conceived as an initiative to answer some of the key questions such as how do we ensure that renewed interest of youth is not wasted and the EndSARS protests do not go by the way of previous citizens’ actions? How do we ensure adequate protection and safety for youth leaders working to stick it all out, speak amid government crackdown and anti-citizens actions? How do we ensure the rights of protesters, women, vulnerable groups are protected as they continue to demand and fight for their rights.
