    #BringBackOurGirls

    Bring Back Our Girls - Toronto

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AngadK and her husband attended a protest demanding that more be done to rescue the more than 200 schoolgirls who were kidnapped in Nigeria weeks ago. The protesting happening in Toronto, Canada, on May 3, and was organized through social media. She says many of the protesters were Nigerians who were trying to raise awareness about the incident and were marching in solidarity with the missing schoolgirls' families. 'The protestors from Nigeria spoke specifically about the Nigerian government not doing enough in this situation, and this situation being representative of the larger issue of lack of support and protection for education, girls, and public safety,’ she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Advocates for the missing girls in Nigeria, gathered at Dundas Square and marched to City Hall in Toronto, chanting, "Bring back our girls!" and singing the Nigerian and Canadian national anthems. Several speakers from Nigeria expressed their hopes that people coming together around the world would result in positive action to find the missing girls and also begin to challenge the status quo of the Nigerian government's commitment to education and public safety.
