Bring Back Our Sisters! KDIS Students rally for the abducted Nigerian school girls

May 26, 2014

KDIS Students rally for the abducted Nigerian school girls   International students at Korean Development Institute of Public Policy and Management (KDIS) on Friday, May 26 embarked on a peaceful walk through the streets of Seoul to raise awareness about the over 240 girls abducted from their boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria by a group called, “Boko Haram and also pray for their release. Boko Haram is an Islamic extremist group. The name means “Western education is forbidden.” The organization claims responsibility for kidnapping the over 240 young girls from their school. Boko Haram is now threatening to sell them into slavery. Over 30 students from different parts of the world, faculty and staff convened at the lobby of KDI School for the march. The event began with a moving speech delivered by Malika Ibragimova from Uzbekistan. Her speech succinctly sums up the message of the demonstrators thus; “Our generation is under attack, from the child marriages rampant the world over, to child soldiers and now the kidnapping of our fellow sisters from school, we will not keep quiet, we will not allow the present and future of our countries be dictated by a few bad seeds, in the likes of Boko Haram and its subsidiaries.” She also called upon African leaders to take the lives of their citizens more seriously, pool resource and expertise together to bring back our sisters. With Messages of hope and “bring back our sisters” written on placards in several international languages, the students marched peacefully through the streets of Business School of Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Hoegi Station, through to the Kyunhae University streets and back to KDIS campus. The #bringbackourgirls awareness drive is now a global event, and the demonstrators believe they can also add their voices to keep the conversation going and prayers for the release of the girls. KDI School has highest number of international students in South Korea. Organizers believe the march was important because it increased awareness on the agony the missing girls and their parents are facing to people in Hoegiro, Seoul.
