Protest in Nigeria - level 2

Protest in Nigeria - level 2

12-05-2014 07:00

Islamists entered an all-girl school in a village in Nigeria last month. They packed the girls onto trucks and they disappeared into a remote area. They kidnapped the girls.

People want the girls saved, and they think that the government is not doing enough. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets last Monday. The march began at a popular bus stop and ended outside the state government house. People waved banners and chanted, “Bring back our girls!”

One protester said that this was a beginning. She said that more and more people will protest. The plan is to protest every Monday.

Difficult words: remote (far from a city), kidnap (to take somebody who does not want to go somewhere), chant (to say something again and again).
