Manal, Roula, Aminah, Latifah, Sonia, Christelle, Marguerite, and all the women who died of domestic violence will not rest in peace, because today the Lebanese Parliament passed a joke of a law, a joke that now legalizes marital rape. No women will leave or face her husband while her children remain at risk… no women will dare to speak up knowing that if she protects herself, her children will be the next boxing bag.
A law passed, it is for sure not the law we’ve been fighting for! All those thousands of people who marched weeks ago where not apparently enough to move our parliament, all those women who died, and those children who were/are bruised for life apparently are not enough reason for a fair law.
To hell with this country, to hell with every politician… all the blood of innocent women and children are on your hands!
KAFA, is calling for a public protest at 5pm in Riadh El Solh square… be many.
