"In recent years, the people of Darfur have been systematically attacked by the Sudanese army and by proxy-militia controlled by them as well. These militia bands are called Janjaweed" (Xavier 4). After many years of neglecting the needs of the Darfurian people and the Darfurians
The novel A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah is a book about the civil way in Sierra Leone which took place during the early 1990's all the way up until the early 2000's. During this civil war many human right were violated and some were even taken away from the innocent citizens of Sierra Leone by a group of men and children that called themselves the rebels. They were rebelling against the Sierra Leone government and their ways of showing their anger was by raiding villages and brutally attacking whoever was in the town at the time of attack. Then before they left the town they would burn down all the houses and buildings to ensure that no one could return to the village and survive. Some of the rights that were taken away from these citizens by the rebels were the right to life and the right to food and shelter for all.
Of the 47 million Sudanese people, over two million have died due to the civil wars raging on in Sudan(Military). This war has caused more than 50,000 people, from twenty different countries, to be resettled in Utah and has displaced more than four million. Of the millions of refugees in Sudan only about 70,000 are permitted into the United States each year. More than 80% of the refugees are single mothers who know little to no English(Cortez). A collection of kingdoms make up the country of Sudan.
This event caused thousands of Tutsis to migrate to Uganda because of rise of Hutu violence against Tutsi. Around 1990, Tutsi exiles know as the Rwandan Patriotic Front(RPF), attempted to invade Rwanda. The invasion is thwarted by the Rwandan army with the help of French and Belgium troops. The attempted invasion caused a civil war between the two ethnic groups for 3 to 4 year. During the civil war, Rwanda’s main export coffee goes through a recession
Editorial Speech In the world these days, many schools and other places are having an issue about gunfire with mental kids. Due to this, many people have died and got injured, causing fear and tragedy for many families. Some people even move to other countries to avoid living under fear constantly just because of gun shootings. I personally think what Kent state university did to William Koberna, banning him from the school because of a tweet he uploaded about shooting the campus was a wrong thing to do. First of all, this was a stupid behaviour because all William Koberna did was upload a tweet.
The killers were also thought to be bullied victims or jock haters since this stereotype was also often associated with school shootings. Also when the shooters were killing students they were asked by one girl why they were doing this and the killers responded with “it was because we were bullied last year” which wasn’t true because the killers
The al-Shabaab militant group has become known around the world in the past few months for their infamous acts involving Somalia. The militants Involved with this group are making it increasingly hard to reach the people of Somalia who are still living in drought and famine conditions. Barricades and walls have been built by these such militants causing major problems for the aid groups trying to help stranded refugees. In addition, fighting has begun on the border of Somalia and Kenya due to the al-Shabaab and their plans to regain “several chunks of territory” (Gettleman, “Fighting Erupts on Border”) they had lost in the past month to the Somalian Government. Due to the fighting a majority of the Somalis retained in camps in Kenya were forced to leave and scatter among the devastation, some fleeing as far as the other side of the border, on Somalia’s soil.
Society has become such a cesspool for violence, it’s a no brainer that there is enforcement all over the place making sure that young adults obey the law. It is unfortunate that it had to get this far, but who is to blame for the violence in schools? In the past two decades, our collective attitude toward children and youth has undergone a profound change that’s reflected in the educational and criminal justice systems as well as in our daily discourse. (Fuentes, 610) The crackdown on youth has had no control over the subsequent events. Assured, you can lock a child up for violence and take him off the streets, but then that just causes a domino effect.
Others join armed groups out of desperation. Child Soldiers are not morally responsible for the acts they commit during wars because they are drugged up, are given no choice, and brainwashed. First, child soldiers are so drugged up on weed and cocaine that they have no real understanding of what they are really doing. According to Institute for War and Peace Reporting, “Child soldiers are drugged by militia leaders. They become violent and addicted...” The fact that children under the age of 20 are being forced to take hard core
These poor parents are wondering why on earth would someone want to shoot defenseless children? My life has changed till that day, I feel so bad for the families behind all these children and adults. If I were put in the same situation where I sent my child off to school, and later realized that I will never be picking them up, I would be heartbroken. The teachers are heroes for risking their lives to help save as many children as possible. This is one of the main reasons why I believe that in the 2nd amendment “the right to bear arms” needs to hold back on the right to have weapons because of all the crazy people we have in this world.
