Bonsoir mes amis je veins encore de vous pour vous donner la suite de mes pensé concernant notre pays Rdc.
cla mort du liberateur laurant kabila muzee plonge le pays dans le dilemme.la présence des milices faisant la loi sans le respect des droits humains tel que la D.U.D.H (Déclaration universelle de droits humains) le prône,les viols et tuéries massifs des,hommes et enfants,les pillages systématique continuelle.
En effets,la vie de lafemme congolaise,de beaucoups de veuve ou non reste sans doute cloué dans le malheur,car cela fait plus de 16ans.jours pour jour que la femme zoomorphisé par le fléau de la violnce sexuelle.
Toute fois,le gouvernement congolais par le billet du ministre de affaires intérieurs qui devait en principe mettre un terme à cette calamité qui ,ne fait que des dilogues avec les violateurs,causant ainsi la multiplicité des violnce et l;effondrement de la dignité fémininé.
le gouvernement ne doit plus se recroqueviller dans les affaires de viol et de crime de guerre mais plutôt déféres en justice les hors la loi.merci

Good evening, friends. I’m returning once again to give you more of my thoughts concerning our country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The death of liberator Laurent Kabila Muzee plunges the country into a dilemma. Military presence makes the law without any respect to human rights defined by the U.D.H.R. (Universal Declaration of Human Rights). It extols rape and the widespread massacre of men and children, systematic and continuous pillaging.
In effect, the life of the Congolese woman whether she be, as many are, a widow, or not remains without a doubt trapped in unhappiness because for more than 16 years, day by day, the woman has been zoomorphized by the plague of sexual violence.

Nevertheless the Congolese government by way of the Ministry of Internal Affairs which should, in principal put an end to this calamity, has had no discussion with the rapists and criminals, thereby perpetuating the violence and collapse of feminine dignity.

The government should not avoid the affairs of rape and crime during war, but rather should bring to full-fledged justice the word of the law. Thank you.

Merci!

Ma chérie Juslene,
Merci beaucoup pour les mots puissants ! Ta voix est passionnée et je veux l’entendre encore. Est-ce qu’il y a les manières spécifiques avec quelles le gouvernement Congolaise puisse changer le système judicaire ? As-tu des idées ?

Avec solidarité, ton amie,
Bridgette

Zoomorphism

Jusline,

Participating in this forum is not only a one way process in which I am able to support women who are abused, exploited or hurt. It also enables me to learn from them.

One concept I have learned today is the term ZOOMORPHISM. The word sounds interesting and pleasant. References define it as "an art that imagines humans as animals". Having the word "art" in the definition makes the term harmless or classy. But looking back at what you have shared, ZOOMORPHISM is undesirable because it means people are behaving like wild animals - killing and ravaging even their own kind. As you have related, there is pillaging, rape, and massacre of all ages - males and females alike, anytime, anywhere. This is horrific and I do not like to imagine the details!

Pardon me from buckling because I cannot stand animal behavior among civilized people. But you are admirable! You are strong, resilient and brave. I pray that you will remain as you are for your sake and others as well.

The first step

Dearest Jusline,

Thank-you for sharing - I completely agree that the government must treat situations like these as a priority. I hope you are successful in raising awareness, perhaps even enough to force them to change!

Best,
