For Florence, for Hussein
For all the hostages
For the Afghan people
For the Iraqi people
Away war from history
Women in Black Italian Network gathered in the annual meeting on May 28th and 29th ASKS:
Freedom for Clementina Cantoni and for all the war hostages, for Florence Aubenas and for her translator, Hussein Hanoun Al-Saadi;
Peace and freedom for the Afghan people, for the Iraqi people and for any woman and man victim of wars;
We EXPRESS our solidarity to relatives, to women and men friends and aid-workers of Care International, the organization working in Kabul to a project in favour of the thousands Afghan widows, in a country crossed by a war aged more than 25. We ASK the withdrawal of the Italian troops from any war set.
During this painful waiting we, Women in Black, will silently scream in streets and squares until they will release Clementina, Florence, Hussein, all the hostages, Afghan and Iraqi peoples. Until the war will be throw away from history. Because the war in Afghanistan as in Iraq, as any other war and any terrorism kill human lives and our same humanity.
In order that fire ceases, in order that a permanent and global war, itself producing terrorism, ends, in order that nobody is stolen from life for the weapons’ control madness.
Bombs kill our hearths and minds,
between killing and dying, we, the women, choose living.
