English translation by PulseWire member MESSA

We women, we want peace
We Congolese women, we want peace and not war. Precedent wars left us widows and we lost our children. War left us in a situation we are unable to get out of. And now we women, we do not want Congo to be divided into two parts. If the country is to be divided into two, war will still break out and we will be the victims to the reserved fate. We mothers, we call on the authorities or the hierarchy of the country to think of how to solve such animosity which is taking place here in Congo.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

nous femme nous voulons la paix

Merci d'avoir publié cet article, ça fait plaisir de savoir que vous vous levez pour décrier une situation tout en donnant l'avis et la position des femmes congolaise face à cette situation. Beaucoup de courage et continuez à condamner la guerre car ses conséquences sont néfastes.

Ghnadi un jour a dit, tout finira bien par s'arranger, et si tout ne s'arrange pas, ce que ce n'est pas encore la fin. Femme, garde espoir!!!!

Ghandi once said it will all get well at the end, and if it doesn't get well, then it is not yet the end.

There is power in peace

Hamisi,

when elephants fight, the grass suffers. Indeed, when men make the decisions that cause war, our children suffer and our country is torn apart. However, we are not powerless as women. We have to stand together and speak up and make the people listen. They cannot ignore you forever.

Keep up the fight,

Angela

YES. I agree with you, Hamisi. If only politicians would listen to the people, to the mothers...
Take care and keep speaking up,
Shelley
