Many activists get in danger because of the cause their supporting. That can lead to physical or mental violence. For example in Pakistan a 12 year old girl named Malala Yousafzai fought for girls education, said guardian.com. A bad group of people in pakistan called the Taliban, were closing the schools for girls and Malala wanted to stop that. Also the Taliban slaughtered 2-3 people a night Because she was speaking out so much she started to get targeted by the Taliban.
My last example of a teen activist who risked their life is Iqbal, who was killed at the age of twelve because he stood up against child labor, in the freedom hero video he said to the students he was lecturing “I will do whatever it takes to stop child labor” this quote shows how teen activists are risking their lives by showing how even though some people don’t like what their saying and are threatening him he still gave speeches and lectures around the world. As you can see a lot of teen activists are risking their lives by fighting for their cause even though they are threatened by people, it also shows that teen activists are very
These men were Islamic and they wanted women’s rights to go to school to be taken away, so they made it their mission to burn down schools and kill men and women alike who went against their interpretation of Islamic law. Malala only a teenager at the time helped foster change in her in her country for women’s rights. Malala was a leader
Therefor, the Taliban thinks that if the girl go to school, God will get angry at them, thinking that the Holy Quran mention that women must stay at home. Nevertheless, people should realize the fact that the Holy book did not prevent women from getting an education or stop them from going to school, but the terrorist misusing the name of Islam for their own benefits. "They thought that the bullets would silence us, but they failed," Malala said in a speech at the United Nations on her 16th birthday. The terrorist thought that if they close the schools, they will silence the girls from seeking for their right, but they were wrong. Moreover, Malala Yousafzai is an inspiring icon because she let the whole world listing of her
She felt devastated that girls couldn’t get a good education like the boys could. It was all because of the Taliban, who was stopping her and many other girls across pakistan. She stood up for her rights and spoke out against them. She still attended school after many threats made towards her and her father. One day, while she was riding home from school, the taliban stopped her bus, and shot her straight in the head.
Mostly the Taliban confiscated stuff, gave a kick to someone’s rear, whacked the back of a head or two. But sometimes there were public beatings, lashings of soles and palms” (Hosseini 267). Journal Entry: (C) Rasheed uses violence as a way to control the defenseless women. He is able to nearly break Laila’s sense of self worth via this form on control. Likewise, the Taliban gain power through fear.
While in Don't give up the fight the narrator gets bullied and does not do anything about it. Closer to the end of the story Ava [ or the narrator] tells her friend and then they both tell the principal and then the coach and kid get in trouble. I believe the story Don't give up the fight shows a bit more of helping others than Making Sarah Cry because. I believe this because the narrator in Don't give up the fight does nothing for a long time about getting bullied. But after she broke her arm she then told her friend and her friend preserved her to go and tell the
Some people say that the people in Shay 's Rebellion were freedom fighters, nevertheless Shay and his followers were rebels because they protested violently, caused chaos in the country, and were criminals. To begin with, Shay would not peacefully protest, but instead he would use violence to be heard. According to Abigail Adams in Document B, Shay and other farmers started ¨riots in my home state.¨ (Document B, Abigail Adams) Abigail had lived in Massachusetts during the time of Shayś Rebellion, and she could see firsthand the riots the farmers had caused with their riots, and the aftermath of that display of violence. She would then go on to say that the protesting had one on to such a degree that the courts have been shut down in several countries.¨ (Document B, Abigail Adams) This evidence shows that Shay
Malala stated that no one had to die to go to school and that we can change the picture together. However, the Taliban was furious with Malala. Her name was looked up online and from the Taliban it said, “Should be killed” (Yousafzai 118). “Her words defied the Taliban, an oppressive religious and political group that ruled by militant force where Malala lived” (Rowell 10). She did the complete opposite of the Taliban.
In the beginning, the nurse urges the children not to go near their mother, for all she knew in her frenzy she could harm the innocent kids. She no longer wanted to hurt just Jason, but also everything that had to do with him. “I’ve seen her look at them with savage eyes. As if she means to injure them somehow” The nurse (About Medea and the kids) Even Medea herself says that: “Cursed children of a hateful mother-May you die with your father” Not only does she curse her children, she uses them as a ploy to earn time for planning her vengeance. But as discussed before, hatred was only a consequence of betrayal.
Others are in for revenge and keep that on their mind to kill people and sell drugs. Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
I thought of waging a war in protest against the killings all by myself, if no one else would help” (Moody 202-203). She did not realize it then but she was starting to form a fire within her. She wanted to fight against society and ensure hate crimes like Samuel O’Quinn do not occur again. Later in life, she recognized that these various events helped her to reach where she is but a lot of blood, sweat and tears occurred in her past in order to be determined enough to become a civil rights
McCormick made the point that running away is not as much of an option because of the threats of being beaten if one chooses that option. When Lakshimi first arrives at the brothel she fights back when a customer tries to rape her. Mumtaz does not like this so she beats her to the point where her entire body was scared. Lakshimi is scared to run away because she was told that Mumtaz’s goons will catch her and bring her back to Mumtaz to get beaten again. Lakshimi compares Mumtaz to a monster when she says “Only a monster can do what [Mumtaz] does to innocent girls,” (McCormick 231).The protagonist has been in the brothel the longest and she’s seen girls get kicked to fend for themselves or kill themselves, but she is “... afraid to imagine a life outside this place,” (McCormick 208).
The US border patrol was implemented to limit the way people can enter the US, apparently they wanted the “legal” way. But, the Spanish did not come legally. Nothing they did was legal, they raped our women and committed mass murders. The US picks and chooses what and who they get to call illegal and it always happens to affect people of
Their peers teach and give bad advices to them. Some peers give pressure or influence other teenagers ,for instance, to drink and go to parties and do things that are not proper. It’s really similar to the “Speak” book and what Laurie Halse Anderson wants us to understand from her written book and how peer pressure affects teenagers. By reading this book, we can be more careful all the time and do not listen to peer. Peers had several ways that they pressure or influence Melinda Sordino’s life; they were talking to her all time and give her bad advice (Halse).
