On the gas attack to schoolgirls in Afghanistan
The recent gas attack targeting schoolgirls in Mahmud Raqi, Afghanistan, is just another "signal", if we want t use such a word.
A "signal" that learned, independent girls and women are not wanted at all by those insecure, ferocious fellows who claim acting in name of Islam.
I'm indignant, and outraged, of this attack.
I add up: we'll multiply all our energies just for this: doing our best so that girls have access to study, can learn as boy do, and are not banned, either directly of by indirect discrimination, by all fields boy can access.
The value of instruction for the future of our World is strategic, no less important that our species future. And this is especially important towards women, as their contribution, until now largely neglected, is one of the keys to construct the viable future we all human beings expect for our descendants.
And am sure, hatred will not win, if we all stay unite and supportive. If we ask strongly our Governments and Institution to take a stand in favor of instruction as a primary right, to be enforced when necessary.
I'm doing with my Government, and wish other people will follow.
To the despicable cowardly fellows who have done the attacks, and no doubt plan others, I say: Stop violence against girls and women. Immediately. We're vigilating, and will do our best to make your lifes miserable. We're millions, and together.
