Summit

Dear Akonkwa, Coordinator of OSODI Congo,

The Francophonie Summit quickly approaches and it is time for OSODI to have a voice during it. Our partners from the Nobel Women’s Initiative published a high-level declaration for the leaders of the world and the participants of the summit, calling for strong actions towards the prevention and elimination of rape as a war tactic and calling for access to medical care, emancipation initiatives, and restitution for survivors.

They call for:
1. A strengthening of the justice system and of the mechanisms used by the International Criminal Court to bring an end to impunity
2. Sexual violence to be treated like a security problem by the international community
3. The full implementation of national and global action plans, as asked for in the Security Council’s Resolutions 1325 and 1820
4. Women’s advancement.

We invite OSODI and other participants of the summit to write open letters to the leaders of Francophonie, particularly emphasizing their personal experiences, their witnessing of gender-based violence in their community, and their calls to action. Please invite all OSODI members who visit the internet café this week to write their open letters in their respective PulseWire journals. In addition to OSODI, please also include the tag “Francophonie,” so that these letters can be included in the Nobel Women’s Initiative declaration during the summit.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
In solidarity,
Akonkwa
