The story of how militia bullets shattered two-year-old Memuna’s arm and killed her grandmother as she cradled Memuna during a 1998 attack in the Sierra Leone Civil War is well-documented. Dubbed “Peace Girl,” Memuna went on to testify before Congress.

Please sign the petition in order to get justice for Adedire here:
“Adedire Olarewaju Ososanya a rising star of his generation and a 3rd year student of Morgan State University was killed in a cold blood car crash on Thursday December 17, 2015 by a hardened and a repeated drunk driver in Largo Maryland. The offender has multiple traffic and criminal records. The alleged drunk driver is James Scott Calero, son of a state senate. James Calero is from Bowie Maryland. WE WANT JUSTICE FOR ADEDIRE PERIOD.”
Nobody is above the law. Ososanya was just 20-years-old. He was a promising young business student at Morgan State University. No mother should have to bury her child! Please sign the petition, it only takes a few seconds. This is our African brother.
when we say “West Africa” let’s remember that we’re talking about a region that consists of 15 countries, over 300 million people, hundreds of different languages and cultures—one that spans over two thousand miles.
3 young Sudanese men killed
‘execution-style’ in Indiana, but where is media coverage:
Police in the US state of Indiana say they are yet to identify a motive for the “execution-style” murders of three young Muslim-American men last week, in a case that has barely caused a ripple in mainstream media in the United States
The three men - 23-year-old Mohamedtaha Omar, 20-year-old Adam Mekki and 17-year-old Muhannad Tairab - were found dead in a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Wednesday, The men, who police said hailed from Africa’s eastern Sahel region, had all been shot multiple times. Police said the murders were not believed to be gang-related.
“Eidi Mohamed, 20, a student, remembers all three of the Sudanese boys in middle school as “really into sports, specifically soccer.” “There are a few news channels here covering but it really isn’t getting attention like the Chapel Hill shooting” he went on to say. Asked whether or not the area has a history of overt racism towards Blacks or Muslims Mohamed recalled, “I’ve always heard about racist things going on in Fort Wayne, parts of Fort Wayne have a lot of African Americans and African Immigrants.” -http://muslimmatters.org/
Since the media won’t cover the story, we will. Sad to see that the few times the media covered this story, they tried to paint the victims as thugs, criminals, etc. This story is just as important as any other story repeatedly talked about in the news.
