As a Peace & Human Rights Advocate I won't be silent

For some time I'd thought about applying for exchange programmes to gain more experience in conflict resolution.

Last April after seeing an advert for a summer school in Kosovo with an American organisation, I decided it was time I gained this new learning so I applied. Today I want to share my…

July 9, 2011, South Sudan independence was met with great jubilation across South Sudan including the people of Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile and of course the beloved people of Abyei.

The decision had invoked appreciation from human rights’ groups and anyone who was sympathetic with her, if not the cause. However, two days after her release, she was forcibly re-arrested as she had continued her hunger-strike. The…
