Gender Based Violence

Greetings my friends. I'm happy when I read your comments. I wanted to inform you that Monday 3/9/2O12 there was a clash between the air soldiers and the government soldiers at Nyabibwe in the South of South-Kivu at the boundary between South and Nord Kivu leaving 3 dead, others seriously wounded and a lot of looting. We are now asking ourselves; where is peace? What do people want? Why such actions? Were they sent, if yes by who? We Congolese ask what Congo had done to the world. We want peace and we say NO to Violence, NO to hatred, No to secession of the country. We say yes to the construction of our country, the preservation of Congo’s heritage. If we die today, it’s because of our riches. Every day we record deaths especially here in the East.

Gender based violence

Dear Adele,

In a world where women are routinely subjected to violence, we forget that the violence of war also affects men: either they are wounded and killed or their humanity is taken away from them when they commit acts of war.

Thank you for speaking out from your corner of the world.

Your sister in California,

Jan

Senseless violence

I am so sorry to hear of this senseless violence, but I thank you for speaking out and reminding all of us how frequently such things happen, and how so many lives are destroyed with each of these acts -- if not immediately, then through indirect consequences. Why do people still see violence as a route to peace? With enough voices to express the fundamental flaw in such an approach, maybe we can make progress, little by little. Keep speaking out, stay strong, stay proud!
