"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Nigerian schoolkids are out in the streets protesting the enforcement of the sharia rule mandating women wearing the hijab.

Secondary school students in Ibadan yesterday took to the streets of the Oyo State capital, protesting the continued disruption of their studies by Muslim youths out to enforce the use of veil (hijab) in public schools in the state. The students in their thousands stormed the state secretarial complex Agodi Ibadan, demanding to hear from the state governor, Alhaji Lam Adesina, what his government was doing about the hijab crisis in the state.

If they were protesting a Chirstmas tree American media might care.
