Some hours after having posted my latest article on paysages – “Come toi (As you)” – remembering the Chibokgirls with a song from Jean – Jacques Goldman – I read the news – that the Chiboksgirls had converted to Islam and had been married of. Even in the German media this terrible news was on the topic. Personally I was neither surprised nor shocked. This is the unsurprising reality in regions where groups like Boko Haram or Da’ech rule – exert their tyranny!
In the same time I discovered the tweet of Gisèle Deurst ““Mariées et converties“ une autre manière de dire „offertes en esclavage sexuel“. Intolérable. Inhumain. Inadmissible. (Converted and married off – another way to say – offered to sexual slavery. Intolerable. Inhuman. Inadmissible)”. The tweet is a Citizen outcry facing tyranny!
Converted and married off – it’s just another was to say – offered to sexual slavery! It is intolerable, it’s inhuman, and it’s inadmissible!
