The #BringBackOurGirls and ‘Women For Peace and Justice‘ movements have announced and encouraged everyone around the world to wear red on Nigeria’s Children’s day which is celebrated on Tuesday 27th May 27 2014.
The movements have called for this to show the world’s solidarity with the missing Chibok girls.
“This movement is a reminder of how in unity we are powerful. We the people in Nigeria and our friends around the world have brought international support to find the missing girls and have put pressure on the Nigerian Government to do more but until these girls are back with their families it is not enough.” says Aisha Oyebode, an initial promoter of the #BringBackOurGirls movement and a leader of the Women For Peace and Justice Movement.
She concluded by saying; “It is important that we keep the momentum up so that these girls do not become yesterday’s news until they are safe. So please spread the word”.
