Alipate slapped and kicked out of home for wearing the Black Arm Band

Alipate ITIRD (not his real name) was slaped by his father and kicked out of his own home for wearing the Black Arm Band, on the 2nd May 2009. His father a very high ranking military officer, and famous for his firery speeches and warnings through the media, warned him to take off the BAB at a 'church' meeting. Alipate decides not to, and when they get home, his own father slaps him, swears at him and chases Alipate out of the house. Alipate has since contacted us here at FYU, and we have varified his true story. There are people like Alipate, out there. Making a difference and impacting lives. They know that to claim their future and prove that they can be leaders of today, they have to stand up to the injustices, even if the injustice is in their own home. This is a peaceful protest. And it runs from the 29th of April to the 29th of May. It involves brave people with black arm bands, on the 'Heart' (left) arm. No SPEECHES and no VIOLENCE. Just the start of peaceful resistance. We salute Alipate and the many people out there that choose to wear the BAB. You are all brave people. WEAR the Black Arm Band today.
