City Hall Rally to #BringBackOurGirls
- New York 05/13/2014 by Linda Perry (WBAI)
While a new video was released by the islamist group Boko Haram on Monday which shows some of the kidnapped girls and threats by the terrorist leader, a rally in support of the abducted Nigerian school girls was held at City Hall.
It was organized by the Chair of the City Council's Women's Issues Committee, Laurie Cumbo. She says, "This is not only a women’s rights issue, but a matter that concerns everyone because the kidnapping is a crime against humanity."
Give a listen.
