Good evening everyone.
I am okay. I refused to run. I walked with my fist high up. @PoliceNG were all shooting at me as I walked away. I came out of the fence they cowardly built around themselves and about 4 of them came at me at the junction throwing bottled water this time
With my fist still raised i told them how shameless they were. One of them cursed me and I gave it back to him. Only one of the bottled water they threw at me touched me slightly and from anyone far away with 4 of them throwing water bottles at me it would have seemed they had me One of them had pushed me and the raised hand might be what some saw as a slap. No, I wasn’t slapped and I refused to cower and I turned and gave them a piece of what I thought of their pathetic selves and if I am going to die, it would be with my fist high up and my mouth open I wasn’t sure as my eyes were streaming from all the tear gas. I raised my fist high up and the few protesters with me also raised their hands . The truck just kept following us. Across the road they kept firing at the rest of the protesters that were on that side. Very shameless
They kept firing canisters of tear gas at the protesters on the other side. I walked towards the Ministry of finance bridge with some of the protesters. I told them to disperse so as not to be targets of the little minded pathetic and snivelling cowards we had as police officers.
I went across the road and had started walking towards Unity Fountain when some of the other protesters met me and asked we walk the road down to the Ministry of finance side. We took that road and they came after us with their huge truck that looked like the hot water truck.
