Since the second week of October 2020, Nigerians have taken the streets in protest to demand the end of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) police unit.  In this podcast we break down the issues with interviews from those on the ground in Nigeria to help paint a picture of the situation. Young Nigerians speak on their experiences with SARS and why they are compelled to fight for change, the problems with the Nigerian Police Force, how SARS affects Nigeria's Queer community, and how you can support from outside the country.  Further reading: Donations:
