A Story of Courage, Saved from Taliba...

15 Feb 2011

School teacher Gul Khandera’s stubborn resistance to the Taliban has made her a heroine in her hometown of Siljbon, and a voice for girls' education rights in Pakistan. The school where Gul Khandera was teaching, which also happens to be the school where Gul herself was educated, was threatened by the Taliban because it had female students.
Gul Khandera's refusal to comply with the Taliban's demands made her a personal target, forcing her to move to Mardan. When the Taliban were ousted from Swat, Gul returned and was relieved to see that her school had not been destroyed. Now a considered a hero, Gul has become headmaster of the school and is working to re-establish education for girls in the Swat Valley.

FAST DRIVING IN KANDAHAR
Kandahar, Afghanistan
By The Journalist Connection
27 Oct 2010

KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN: Last week a foreign military convoy zoomed through my neighborhood. I was going to the bazaar with a friend when I noticed it approaching.

My friend turned to me and said: “Hey, the street is not crowded, but still these soldiers are driving too fast.”

A taxi that was in front of the convoy did not slow down and make way, so a soldier fired one shot in the air as a warning. The driver got scared and stopped his car abruptly in the middle of the road.

I watched in disbelief as the first armored carrier bumped into the taxi and pushed it to the curbside. The convoy did not stop. A few seconds later all the armored vehicles had disappeared around the corner.

My friend and I walked up to the taxi. Two passengers were hurt. One woman held her neck and complained about the pain.

All the people in the street were displeased with the soldiers. One man said: “These foreigners can’t even take care of their own security, how can we expect them to protect us?” Another man said: “Look, they don’t care about us. They’re not here to help. They have their own aims.”

I think the second man was right. The people in the United States think that their army is here to help Afghanistan but if regular Americans came here to Kandahar to see how their soldiers behave they would understand that nobody really cares about us.

The small Muslim province of Ningxia is one of the places hit hardly by climate change, surrounded by two expanding deserts which the UN have already declared “unfit for human habitation”. Here, China has launched one of its largest operations to mitigate the effects of climate change; the worlds largest planned eco-migration, relocating up to half a million of its poorest peasant farmers, goat herders and their families from small rural villages of cave homes, to newly built urban centers, irrigated by the yellow river.

The war over Abkhazian, between 1992 and 1994, led to the displacement of mainly ethnic Georgians.

There are no running water in the rooms. The families have to collect the water from a post outside.
