NOUS RÉCLAMONS LA PAIX AU CONGO

Nous femmes de la R.D. Congo, nous réclamons la paix, une paix durable, c’est pourquoi nous invitons tout le monde à apporter sa contribution dans le but de pouvoir trouver une solution.
La guerre : est la source du déséquilibre que subit la femme congolaise sur tout le plan :
Physiquement, psychologiquement, socialement, économiquement et légalement.
Physiquement : Nous avons constaté que la guerre est venue pour les femmes et les enfants, ils sont les 1ère victimes, les femmes sont soumis à des viols, et toute forme de violence sexuelle entre autre : l’esclavage sexuel, l’enlèvement, le torture, mutilation des sexes …., blessures, transmissions des IST , VIH/SIDA, grossesses non désirées ,handicapes physiques.
Psychologiquement : Nous ne cessons pas de dire que la plupart des personnes est traumatisée suite aux guerres,ceux dont nous vivons quotidiennement nous affecte moralement, c'est gravé dans nos mémoires: tueries,massacres,incendies,viols, pillages,droits bafoués et inexistants, chacun l’est de sa façon, et si nous pouvons évaluer d’une manière globale nous voyons que le niveau de traumatisme est à 3 degrés, nous citons: le degré mineur,moyen et aigu
Socialement:les femmes sont stigmatisées,discriminées,marginalisées suite aux problèmes qu'elles ont contracté lors des ces guerres;des ruptures des foyers,ruptures des fiançailles, Exodes ruraux,Mouvement des populations,déplacement massif dans son pays, déscolarisation accrue, les enfants sans pères sont nés, les conflits naissent du jour le jour.
Économiquement: ici chez-nous les femmes sont devenues les actrices productrices génératrices de revenues dans leurs foyers par manque d'emploi aux hommes, les hommes abandonnent leurs familles pour aller à la recherche de l'argent dans de carrières minières et cela sans retour. toute la charge incombe sur la tête de la femme:soins des enfants au cas où les coups de soins de santé est élevé ,scolarité des enfants et toute leur survie,
Légalement: si nous pouvons parler de la justice, nous pouvons dire que les vulnérables n'ont pas droit à la justice,et la voix des sans voix n'est pas écouté les couches les plus démunis en subissent les conséquences.les droits des certains sont oubliés,tout ceci à cause de l'impunité.
NOUS FEMMES DE LA R.D.C,NOUS RÉCLAMONS LA PAIX,NOUS NE VOULONS PLUS DE GUERRE

We Demand Peace in Congo

We, the women of the DR of Congo, demand peace, a lasting peace, which is why we invite everyone to contribute to the goal of finding a solution.

War is the source of the imbalance that Congolese women suffer in every aspect of life: physically, psychologically, socially, economically and legally.

Physically: We have come to realize that war is waged on women and children. They are the first victims. Women are raped and subjected to all types of sexual violence, including: sexual slavery, kidnapping, torture, genital mutilation, transmissions of STIs such as HIV/AIDS, unwanted pregnancies and injuries leaving them physical disabled.

Psychologically: We cannot stress enough that the majority of people are traumatized by the wars that we live on a daily basis and which affect us morally. Each in their own way, the horrors are engraved in our memories: slaughters, massacres, fires, rapes, pillaging, rights which are scorned and nonexistent. And if we look at it on a global scale, we can see that the level of trauma affects us in three degrees: mild, moderate and severe.

Socially: women are stigmatized, discriminated, and marginalized following the problems that they encounter in these wars: the breakdown of homes and relationships, rural exoduses, migration of populations, massive displacement within a country, the increase of children who lack education, children born without fathers. Conflicts arise day to day.

Economically: here, women are the active generators of income in the home due to a lack of jobs for men. Men abandon their families in search of money in the mining industry and do not return. The burdens fall on the women’s shoulders: caring for children when medical costs are high, educating them and ensuring their survival.

Legally: if we can talk of justice, we see that those who are most vulnerable do not have the right to justice, and that the voice of the voiceless goes unheard. The poorest classes suffer the consequences, and all of this can be attributed to impunity.

WE, THE WOMEN OF THE DRC, DEMAND PEACE. WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE WAR.

Chère Bajira, Je vous

Chère Bajira,
Je vous remercie pour partager vos idées avec le monde. Il y a une force dans votre récit qui m’inspire. Il est terrible de voir les injustices et les violences que subissent les femmes et les enfants. Mais je vous demande de continuer ce que vous faites, car c’est le meilleur moyen de atteindre la paix durable que vous cherchez.

Bien à vous!
Pilar
