#BringBackOurGirls ….. It’s day 183!!


~~October 14, 2014~~ 

It’s been months since heavily armed attackers stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted nearly 300 girls during the night of 14-15 April. The majority of the schoolgirls have not been seen or heard from since and are feared to have been sold into “marriages” and sexual slavery in Nigeria, and potentially, in neighboring Cameroon and Chad.

The militant group, Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates to “Western education is a sin,” reportedly claimed responsibility, stating, “Western education should end. Girls, you should go and get married … I will sell them in the marketplace.” In a further alarming development, early in the week of 4 May, suspected Boko Haram gunmen abducted at least eight more girls – some possibly as young as eight years old – from a village in Borno State, Nigeria.

On 6 May, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights stated that such human rights violations – selling the abducted girls as slaves – could constitute “crimes against humanity.”

However, efforts to rescue the girls have fallen desperately short.

Please join Equality Now and our Nigerian partners, Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative, Echoes of Women in Africa, Women for Justice and Peace, and Alliances for Africa, in urgently calling on the Government of Nigeria to:

Take immediate action to locate and rescue the girls and provide them with support services upon their return
Prosecute those responsible for the girls’ abduction and exploitation
Take steps to protect schools from attacks so that they are safe places to learn
Immediately institute, in consultation with women’s rights organizations, measures to protect the safety and human rights of women and girls throughout Nigeria, which are further endangered by the volatile political situation in the conflict areas

Also call on the Governments of Cameroon and Chad to swiftly determine whether the girls were transported into their countries and to assist in their rescue.

#BringBackOurGirls …. can’t let this go!!


~~May 9, 2014~~ 

The plane went missing and media coverage was incessant.
200 schoolgirls forcibly taken from school and there’s silence. The girls were sitting their final Physics exam. They live in a region that has the lowest girl child enrollment in Nigeria. The girls were abducted by Boko Haram because they wanted an education. Not enough is being done to honor their courage.

The #BringBackOurGirls hashtag is keeping this story in the media. If it stays in the media hopefully the inept Nigerian government will act. If these girls had been kidnapped from an elite Nigerian boarding school, if they were children of the wealthy, it would be different.
However these are the children of the poor, and in Nigeria’s deeply inegalitarian society they are insignificant.
Hoping for the best, but fearing the worst.

Please sign the petition, keep the hashtag alive on all your social media channels and contact the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, an advocacy organization that can advocate this case to the UN Security Council.
At this stage UN involvement is critical. Please share these photos and this information.
Thanks in advance.

“In Nigeria, over 200 girls were recently abducted from their boarding school and are reported to be eventually sold as brides for $ 12 each. This petition calls on all World Leaders and enabled parties to rescue them.

The abducted 200+ girls are victims of an ongoing conflict within Nigeria that they did not create, and their voices need to be heard.

We can only imagine what these 200+ girls have been through, and solicit that more effort be put to save them.

I am a young person who believes every child regardless of their sex, should not be denied access to education. We believe that more can be contributed to the efforts of the Nigerian government to ensure the safe return of these girls.

By signing this petition we express our solidarity with the kidnapped girls and implore the world not to forget them, support all efforts to ensure their safe return, and that efforts are made to ensure all schools are safe places to learn, protected from attack.”

After this event took place, little was reported in the mainstream media. It’s been the social media: Facebook, Twitter, the Blogosphere, etc, which has taken over to spread this information and report on updates. These girls have no voice now. It’s up to all of us to speak for them. 

Please, keep this going. 

The more, the “merrier” … for lack of a better phrase. Keep the pressure on. This is now in the eyes of the world!!

“Bring Back Our Girls” …. Nigeria!


~~May 6, 2014~~

How More Than 300 Girls Were Kidnapped By Extremists

The girls in the school dorm could hear the sound of gunshots from a nearby town. So when armed men in uniforms burst in and promised to rescue them, at first they were relieved.

“Don’t worry, we’re soldiers,” one 16-year-old girl recalls them saying. “Nothing is going to happen to you.”

The gunmen commanded the hundreds of students at the Chibok Government Girls Secondary School to gather outside. The men went into a storeroom and removed all the food. Then they set fire to the room.

“They … started shouting, ‘Allahu Akhbar,’ (God is great),” the 16-year-old student said. “And we knew.”

What they knew was chilling: The men were not government soldiers at all. They were members of the ruthless Islamic extremist group called Boko Haram. They kidnapped the entire group of girls and drove them away in pickup trucks into the dense forest.

Three weeks later, 276 girls are still missing. At least two have died of snakebite, and about 20 others are ill, according to an intermediary who is in touch with their captors.

Their plight — and the failure of the Nigerian military to find them — has drawn international attention to an escalating Islamic extremist insurrection that has killed more than 1,500 so far this year. Boko Haram, the name means “Western education is sinful,” has claimed responsibility for the mass kidnapping and threatened to sell the girls. The claim was made in a video seen Monday. The British and U.S. governments have expressed concern over the fate of the missing students, and protests have erupted in major Nigerian cities and in New York.

The 16-year-old was among about 50 students who escaped on that fateful day, and she spoke for the first time in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. The AP also interviewed about 30 others, including Nigerian government and Borno state officials, school officials, six relatives of the missing girls, civil society leaders and politicians in northeast Nigeria and soldiers in the war zone. Many spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing that giving their names would also reveal the girls’ identities and subject them to possible stigmatization in this conservative society.

The Chibok girls school is in the remote and sparsely populated northeast region of Nigeria, a country of 170 million with a growing chasm between a north dominated by Muslims and a south by Christians. Like all schools in Borno state, Chibok, an elite academy of both Muslim and Christian girls, had been closed because of increasingly deadly attacks by Boko Haram. But it had reopened to allow final-year students to take exams.

At about 11 p.m. on April 14, a local government official, Bana Lawal, received a warning via cell phone. He was told that about 200 heavily armed militants in 20 pickup trucks and more than 30 motorcycles were headed toward his town.

Lawal alerted the 15 soldiers guarding Chibok, he said. Then he roused sleeping residents and told them to flee into the bush and the nearby hills. The soldiers sent an SOS to the nearest barracks, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) away, an hour’s drive on a dirt road.

No help arrived.
