I support the comments of Prof Soyinka. The National Sovereign conference is long overdue. Many a politician are toying with the lives of Nigerians. We need to sit down and redesign and negotiate how we Nigerians want to leave together and share the resources we have. The conflicts in Nigeria are on the increase because it is very clear that the handed down structures from the Colonialists – internal and external are totally not in tandem with the wishes of all Nigerians
On AMANPOUR. today, we focus on human rights and freedom of speech in China. Christiane speaks, in a global exclusive, with leading Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. Ai Weiwei, who designed the “Bird’s Nest” stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has continued to highlight injustice through both his art and through social media like Twitter, despite surveillance, threats and physical attack. We ask Ai Weiwei about his art, the role of the social web and digital activism in China and beyond, as well as about the challenging role he plays on the world scene as an artist and social activist in China. That’s not the only story we are focusing on today. Here are some perspectives.

The Amanpour audience expressed interest regarding the story of the use of rape against women as terrorism. Most agreed with this concept and added it was not only “an act of terrorism but it was also a criminal offense.” Additionally, the Israeli novelist, Oz Amos proved popular among Amanpour viewers. Many felt inspired and stated they hoped peace could be accomplished in the Middle East.
Comments about rape against women equaled terrorism in Africa
Agbai E Agbai i think rape is a criminal offence and not a terrorist act.
Ezumah Davis Its terrorism if u use it as a weapon of war, Vis a vis d Congo.
Robin Young In parts of Africa, as in Bosnia, rape has become a political tool of subjugating the enemy by having armies rape thousands of women. By breaking up families and forcing women to bear children conceived by the rape, it has long term consequences after an army has been withdrawn or loses. With the lack of counseling and help for these women, their lives can be ruined, especially if social tradtions cause them to be expelled by their families.
