ST. LOUIS WILL HOST BRING BACK OUR GIRLS PEACE RALLY
On April 15, 2014, over 200 girls were abducted from their school in Nigeria by the terrorist group that goes by the name Boko Haram. Our country and many countries around the world are outraged and saddened by this horrific act of terrorism. This inhumane act of terror on innocent children is unthinkable and is unacceptable. There is an outcry in the St. Louis community to rally together as a unified effort to express empathy, sympathy, and support for the families and the young girls who were abducted.
The Egbe Omo Yoruba of Greater St. Louis and concerned citizens have collaborated to host the “Bring Back Our Girls” Peace Rally. The rally will be held in front of the Central Library, located at 1301 Olive Street in downtown St. Louis, on Friday, May 16, 2014 from 6pm-7pm. Supporters should bring signs that state “# Bring Back Our Girls.” Children, teens, college groups, all organizations and civically-minded people are encouraged to attend and stand unified on this issue.
Please forward this blog post to friends and concerned citizens in the St. Louis area in solidarity with the ongoing campaign to bring the abducted Nigerian girls back home. This concerns everyone – make it your business to speak against terrorism! Come out and join us!
