Survivors of Extreme Abuse: The Awful Rowing Toward Social Emancipation S.M.A.R.T. PRESENTATION August 2010 “Survivors of extreme abuse have intimate knowledge of unspeakable treachery going on behind closed doors, including the deliberate, trauma-based dissociation of children, child, drug and arms trafficking, child pornography and murder. We can also identify the criminals committing these crimes, some of which are perpetrated by vast organized crime syndicates. In spite of great efforts by those in power in the last few years to normalize torture and state-sanctioned murder, the public would not abide these horrors if they had this information, if they knew what was going on.” http://www.scribd.com/doc/39485949/The-Awful-Rowing-Speech

Almost a third of girls say they have been subjected to unwanted sexual contact at school, a poll found yesterday. Many more face harassment such as name calling on a regular basis, the poll revealed. The survey of almost 800 16 to 18-year-olds found that 29 per cent of girls questioned had been the victim of groping, kissing or touching while at school. Around one in seven (14 per cent) of the boys questioned said the same.
UN envoy says over 15,000 raped in eastern Congo By Edith M. Lederer, Associated Press Writer – Oct 15, 2010
UNITED NATIONS – More than 15,000 people were raped in the volatile eastern region of Congo last year, according to the best data available, the top U.N. envoy in the African nation said Friday. Roger Meece, who heads the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Congo, said the scale of the security problems in the east, including sexual attacks, is “enormous.” Meece told the U.N. Security Council that the “horrific” mass rapes in late July and early August by rebel militias in eastern Congo’s mineral-rich Walikale region underscored the importance of protecting civilians….Somewhat different but equally troubling figures were provided by the U.N. Population Fund, which determined there were 17,507 sexual violence attacks throughout Congo in 2009 — including more than 9,000 in North and South Kivu which have been at the center of the conflict in the east.
