VIOLENCES DES DROITS HUMAINS EN RDC (suite)

SOLUTIONS
1. Respecter l’article 16 de la constitution qui stipule ceci : La personne humaine est sacrée. L’Etat à l’obligation de la respecter et de la protéger.
Nul ne peut être tenu en esclavage ni dans une condition analogue.
Nul ne peut être soumis à traitement cruel, inhumain au dégradant.
Notre pays est devenu un champ de baille où les citoyens sont victimes de tuerie, massacre, viols sans omettre la famine qui bat son plein.
2. Punir les violeurs de droits humains.
3. Développer le pays à travers ses ressources.

Our country has become a battlefield where citizens are victims of murder, massacre, rape not forgetting famine which is in full swing.

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.

Hi Lubala

Thank you for letting us know, first hand, what is happening in your country.

I always say that the first step to stop violence, is to recognize that violence IS poverty.

Poverty will be lessened, only when violence is defeated. I know it is difficult to stay calm when violent people surround you.

But think about this: When you look at a violent man in the eye, and tell him something like: "Go ahead, be as violent as you can be, kill me, kill us all, as YOU will become a murderer and ruin your life, while I will become a martyr, an innocent killed by a heartless assassin. Go ahead. Be violent, but don´t stop until you kill me"

When I said something like that to a violent man, his violence subsided. At that time, I didn´t know I was DEFEATING HIS MORALE.

That is exactly the point: women need to win the morale of the violent ones, and that will only be achieved by being NON VIOLENT, acting NON VIOLENT, and affirming NON VIOLENCE as a way of life.

Hugs my dear, from the other side of the world.

Love,´

Jackie

Violences en RDC

Rosalie,

La situation en RDC met le reste du monde dans une situation de desespoir profond. Nous n'arrivons pas a comprendre comment et pourquoi le gouvernement ne fait rien pour proteger la population et cela depuis des annees.
C'est une catastrophe humanitaire et a l'etranger, toute la communaute se bat pour que cette situation trouve une solution dans les mois a venir.
Courage et restez toutes tres fortes et solidaires. N'oubliez jamais que vous avez des droits meme s'ils ne sont pas respectes en ce moment.

It is often difficult when

It is often difficult when legislation voices the words of justice and yet does nothing when injustice occurs. Sadly you live in a place where achieving these basic human rights is not close at hand. However by continuing to use your voice and share your struggles and hopes you can create an awareness that can eventually turn into change. Stay strong and encourage those around you to stand up to violence and demand the achievement of human rights for all women.

Good luck and best regards.
