Film: The Stoning Of Soraya M.
I have seen footage of a stoning and wrote a bunch of amnesty letters to various governmental agencies (I was in the amnesty club in high school and writing is a powerful tool). In 2002 Amina Lawal Kurami , a Nigerian woman, made headlines after being sentenced by an Islamic Sharia court, to death by stoning. Her crime was for adultery and the evidence was having a child out of wedlock. This caught worldwide attention after Oprah made a plea to write letters to the Nigerian Government. It was eventually overturned.
Although no countries actively admitted to this kind of punishment there is proof that it has happened in Somalia, Afghanistan and Iran in this century. So much more needs to be done.
I forced myself to watch this film (and to watch the stoning) because it is real and it is true and I believe that by becoming part of it, in mind, I can lessen the pain of another.
The injustice is extreme and infuriating, and happening right now.
In my humble opinion you should watch this film and get sad then mad.
