It’s 4th April- The day to defend Amina and many others like her who continue to suffer under Islamic Sharia law. There are protests and voices of support coming in from all around the world. Writer and filmmaker Caroline Fourest, one of the signatories calling for anInternational Day to Defend Amina has written about Amina in French here. You can sign the petition to Tunisian government here, which has now over 107,000 signatures. Let’s Breast Them!
In her last recorded statement given to a journalist,Amina said “I have no regrets“. Good on you,Amina!
Read about why an international day to defend Amina is important here. See Maryam Namazie’s statement on International Day To Defend Amina here. Keep yourself updated with what is being done in support of Amina here.
Say no to Sharia. Misogyny must be opposed in all of it’s forms.
Here I’d like to chip in what I experienced a few minutes back. A picture of Pakistani actress Misha Shafi was shared on Facebook by a page dedicated to photography. In the picture some part of her body was visible,and the comments that followed are EXACTLY why we must oppose Islamism. Here are a few comments:
Islamist mentality is the mentality that says that a woman if not hiding behind ten layers of black bin cloth somehow automatically becomes a ‘whore’ who is worth stoning. This is Islamism. This is Sharia. This is what must have our greatest opposition. Sharia law must be condemned and opposed because the question is not if the woman is a ‘prostitute’ or an activist,it’s utterly absurd to judge someone from their clothing/nudity, the question is, who the fuck are Islamists to decide?
I encourage everyone to continue opposing Sharia and continue to defend Amina and many others like her.
