1969 - 20-year old American who burnt himself due to killings in Biafra

Bruce Mayrock, the 20-year old American student who burnt himself to death in 1969 at the United Nations headquarters in New York to protest against the killing of the Biafrans during the civil war in Nigeria. So many uncelebrated heroes!

Tributes to Mayrock

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for the survival of a people. We are here Bruce, we made it alive. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my brother.

Brother Bruce Mayrock, there was an attempt by the evil ones to bury your history with you. Fortunately, with God's special grace, we the children of Biafra of this generation have discovered that history of selfless scarify which you gave at out of high emotion, sympathy and conscience based on the humiliation and injustice towards us. I am happy to have discovered your history and still searching for more about you to build up a good hero's historic documentary to the world to remember you.God bless shall continue to bless your soul Brother Bruce! You came to this world to see the injustice meted out to man. You cried, the unjust heard your voice, but didn't take any action to wipe your tears. You said you'd rather leave this wicked world than watch millions of Biafrans exterminated. You were not an African much less a Biafran, but you showed the world that it didn't matter your race, origin and color, that evil being perpetrated anywhere is evil being perpetrated everywhere. Though the world may not remember your sacrifice, Heaven will forever talk about your love and sacrifice for humanity. I will make sure my people the igbo race of Biafra immortalize you here on earth and the world must hear more about your sacrifices. We shall going to set up a date as your special day of remembrance in the world. You have written you name with a golden pen.Please meet with Zik, Ojukwu, Okpara and Ibiam and go to God, and ask HIM to save us the Biafra people in the hands of the wicked world. Our people are being systematically killed and our land cries for help.Rest in Peace Brother. We love you!
