PEACE AND SECURITY/L'ATTAQUE PERPETREE SUR LE CAMP DES DEPLACES DE MUGUNGA

Ce week-end passé, dans la nuit de samedi 02à dimanche 03/12/2012 une attaque venait d'être lancée sur le camp des déplacés de Mugunga par les hommes en uniformes portant les armes. Les familles des déplacés hébergées dans ce camp se sont vues dépouillées tout simplement de l'aide en vivres et non vivres qu'elles venaient de bénéficier en vue de soulager leurs souffrances. Pendant ce temps, plusieurs sources concordantes confirment le viols de plus ou moins 10 femmes cette même nuit, car cette attaque avait commencé à 23 heures.
De ce qui précède, il faut être inhumain pour continuer à infliger la souffrance très atroce aux personnes se trouvant en détresse. Nous continuons à dénoncer tous ces faits qui ne sont autres que des pures violations des droits reconnus à la personne humaine, lesquels ne doivent pas rester impunis.

Peace and Security/ The Attack Launched on the Refugee Camp in Mugunga

This past weekend, starting Saturday night the 2nd of December and lasting until Sunday morning, December 3, 2012, an attack was launched on the refugee camp of Mugunga by men in uniforms carrying weapons. Refugee families housed in this camp watched their women, living and non-living, as they were stripped in the hope of relieving their suffering. Many sources agree and confirm the rape of more or less 10 women this night since the attack began at 11 PM.
In the future, they will continue to inflict atrocious suffering on people found in distress. We continue to dismiss these actions that are nothing but pure violations of recognized human rights. They should not go unpunished.

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

Merci

Chère Madeleine,
Merci beaucoup. Tes mots sont vraiment courageux et puissants. C’est horrible le case de cet camp de déplacés. Et sans doute, il ya beaucoup d’histoires similaire partout le RDC. A mon avis, ces camps sont très vulnérables et susceptibles à des attaques. Est-ce qu’il y a des manières de protéger les familles là?
Merci autrefois.
Ton amie,
Bridgette

Bonjour
Merci pour ton courage
Je suis persuadée que la paix n'est pas pour demain en R D Congo car les hauteurs de ces crimes seront demain,responsables,hauts dignitaires ,cadres du pays.Les hommes ont compris que pour avoir le pouvoir,il faut appuyer sur l’accélérateur:c'est-a-dire:violer,piller,tuer...
Cette fois-ci,nous devons prendre des dispositions pour que la paix reviennent dans le plus bref délais possible.
Que Dieu vous bénisse
Merci
