A standing ovation for the nobel peace prize laureates Mukwege and Murad

the Applause and the standing ovation never wanted to end when the 25-year-old yazidiern and the almost 40-year older congolese doctor praised for his fight against sexual abuse against women used as a weapon of war.

But Murad and the death of his speech elicited even tears. Rarely have two fredspristagares testimony about the violence in the world has been so powerful and evoked such emotions. Among the audience in the Oslo town hall was, among other things, the Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallström, called the laureates ”Two incredible heroes”.

Nadia Murad looked a bit taken out of the resurrection when she and Mukwege received their medals. Then she held her speech at the nordkurdiska dialect of the kurdish people and told them about the genocide that yazidierna victims of the terrorist organisations IS.

to speak, he gave an almost unbearable picture of the vidrigheterna is going on in his homeland. With peace, the French sue he told me about a violence who does not know any boundaries. The first patient he operated on in his hospital in Bukavu was a woman who was shot in the genitals.

One day, there was a 18 months old girl to the hospital by ambulance. The baby was bleeding profusely and was taken to the operating room.

" When I arrived cried the nurses. Your baby's bladder, the genitals and the anus, was seriously injured, said Mukwege and made a konstpaus before he continued:

– By penetration of an adult.

It was painful to hear his words. Crown princess Mette-Marit was one of those who cried during the ceremony.

Mukwege discovered that the perpetrator of the crime was a man who belonged to the regional parliament, and that scared the villagers into silence. His political immunity meant that he could not be punished. The damaged babies was followed by many more.

" When the 48:th the victim arrived, we were desperate. With the help of the defender of human rights we went to a military court. Eventually were prosecuted for the rapes and they were judged as crimes against humanity, said Mukwege and noted that the rapes are continuing in other parts of the country and the number of dead in the conflict in his home country is six million.

" just Imagine, the equivalent of the entire Danish population decimated, said Mukwege and noted that the UN peacekeeping forces also not spared.

a terrible reality became Mukwege to require to the world instead of just condemning the need to take action.

" We love our beautiful cars, jewels, and appliances. I have a smartphone myself. These gadgets contain minerals from my country. Often, these are collected from the mines where children are working and where they become frightened, and victims of sexual abuse. Take a minute and reflect on the human cost to produce these things, " said Mukwege, who also took the opportunity to pay tribute to his colleague, Nadia Murad, and said that her courage, boldness and ability to inspire hope is a source of inspiration for him and for the world.

with what war and sexual violence means. When ICE took her by Kojo at Sinjarberget in northern Iraq killed her mother and six brothers. Himself was captured, she was raped and abused as a sex slave before she managed to escape to Germany.

Four years later, her fight for justice for his people and for all women who are victims of sexual violence resulted in what is known as the world's finest price.

From the pulpit, found Murad that this is a big day for her, a day when the good defeated the evil and one day when the children and women who are victims of persecution have triumphed over those who committed all these crimes.

" I hope it marks the beginning of a new era, where peace is given priority and that the world can begin to define a way to protect women, children and minorities from persecution, particularly victims of sexual abuse, said Murad and repeated the death of his words that all of the condemnation now must be followed by action.

the Royals on the front row, went in the face of the young girl in the podium and the applause in the town hall never wanted to end.
