WONGOSOL mobilizes to #bringbackourgirls

The Women NGO Secretariat of Liberia and the women of Liberia, in collaboration with her international partners called on Boko Haram to “BRING BACK THEIR GIRLS”. The call came as a result of the relationship that Liberia shared with Nigeria as member of the ECOWAS body. On Thursday May 15, 2014, the women of Liberia dressed in red T-shirt & black trousers/shirts and with posters went at the Nigerian House in Liberia saying “# Bring Back our Girls” as a means of solidarity with the Nigerian families whose girls were taken by the terror group Boko Haram. The women of Liberia condemned the act; mention that is a violation of ARTICLE 4 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights— NO SLAVERY or servitude “No one shall be held in slavery”. A Statement was also presented to the Nigerian Ambassador to Liberia.
