PROTEST


Austria: The protest against unjust imprisonment of Joshua Esosa
By Uzoma Ahamefule

June 1st, 2012 will go down in history in Vienna, Austria as the day Africans announced boldly that the fear of racial arrests by the police and detentions in Austria was over.  They made a statement that they could no longer be intimidated to submission.


It was the day Africans trooped out on the street in mass in a peaceful demonstration that closed the ever busy road of Landesgerichtsstraße for almost 1 hour as the protesters marched from Volkstheater to the front of the prison in Landesgerichtsstraße which was strategic because behind it will be the hosting building of tomorrow's court hearing.

The solidarity support was for Pastor Joshua Esosa who had been accused to be a street drug dealer and had been sentenced 15 months last year in Wiener Neustadt in Lower Austria, when every evidence provided in court had shown almost 99% that Pastor Joshua Esosa had not been the one. One of the infuriating evidences used against the pastor had been yam powder found in his house which the police had not deemed neccessary to cross-check in the laboratory before they had concluded that it had been cocain powder.

This protest was very historical not only that many Austrians with good heart were part of it or that Nigerians from different ethnic groups turned up reasonably after all many Nigerians also had turned up during the gruesome murder of Marcus Omofuma by the police in 1999,  but it was historical because for the first time in Austria more of the protesters were Africans from different countries like Nigeria, Congo, Ethiopia and Kenya etc. unlike the usual trend of national, ethnic or religious solidarity associated with Africans that makes their presence invisible in any protest.
Will justice continue to elude Pastor Joshua Esosa in this case? June 6th, 2012 (tomorrow) should answer this question because that will be the day of the appeal hearing in Wickenburggasse 22, Saal 305/3 at 9.30 am. Be there!

Many thanks to Nigerian/other African internet news reporters and Nigerian print media houses that have done justice to the plight of Pastor Joshua Esosa by publishing/re-phrasing the earlier article that brought this case to the world audience titled " 'I Am Innocent' - Nigerian Pastor Joshua Esosa Sentenced 15 Months In Austria For Drug Cries For Justice." Please you can google this headline to get a clearer picture of the case.
 
Special thanks to AIT (African Independent Television) for their continuous airing of this sad fairy tale to their audience and to all individuals and cooperate bodies that have contributed to the success of the case in any form so far. I want to remind all that the battle is not yet over until the case is won.   
As it stands now, we have managed to progressively move from genesis to Job and that tomorrow will be the day of revelation which is the big day we all have been waiting for. We should all endeavour to stand up for justice unrelentingly until the judge fairly hammers out the last judgement.
"The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis preserve their neutrality", John F Kennedy attributed this quotation to Dante Alighieri while Martin Luther King Jr. added to it that "He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it." He added "He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it." Where do you belong?

See you in court those living in Austria and speak to you those living in other parts of the world after the court.

Pastor Joshua Esosa deserves a fair hearing.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
