Two years ago the EndSARS movement against police brutality took place. The Nigerian Feminist Coalition supported the demonstrators with food, protection…When the central bank of Nigeria banned the them from using the traditional financial infrastructure to collect donations, they started using Bitcoin to fund their activities.
“We had previously spoken about how Bitcoin is good because your government may shut your bank account down but it was all sort of theoretical but in the last month we were actually living through this. All this stuff we have been saying is actually true and we should be putting a lot of our money or at least enough where you can survive and control it.” — Ire Aderinokun, Nigerian Feminist Coalition
2 years ago the @feminist_co in Nigeria had their bank account closed because they supported #endSARS demonstrations.— Anita ⚡🏳️🌈 Bitcoin for Fairness (@AnitaPosch) October 20, 2022
They started accepting #bitcoin donations and were able to support the activists again.
