The low, vevre woman did not have much of themselves, but Frangiza Huseynova beaming of stoltheit under the høgtidelege ceremony and dinner in Oslo in the summer of 2013. She had online received the Fritt Ord foundation's press on behalf of the zone Today. He received the award for his photographic documentation that revealed how the corrupt regime in Azerbaijan carried out serious abuses against the people. He himself had been denied utreiseløyve to accept the award.
I was so lucky to have Frangiza to sit down during dinner and be able to also rose the oldest son of her, Emin. He is also a verdskjent, respected gravejournalist that has avdekka gross corruption from the authorities in the oil-rich country. There is much heat and hard work behind to have raised two such brave sons, I said.
It says: the deep the respect of the mødrer who manages to raise their children to be upright, engaged human being in a corrupt regime like Azerbaijan. Daily, they must take the opinion of and they shall teach your child to work hard and be faithful, but at the same time risking to not get used to their abilities because all the relevant studiestader or jobs in place will be taken by them with the appropriate contacts. Or are you going to bite it in you, and rather pay what it costs for that child to get the grades they deserve, a relevant job and a career?
In your community menneskerettsbrot is norma - dare the mothers take the opinion about to urge their children to stand on your rights, defend the other, say from when it happens somewhat unfair, and take the risk that comes with? Or to protect the children by teaching them to go quietly in gangane and adapt to the system?
And not least - one should take the chance to tell their children that it is ok to tell out, to be happy in any of the same sex, and at the same time the risk that they are exposed to discrimination and violence?
When Frangiza was badly sick in July 2018 sat Today jailed for his journalistic work. Emin had been granted asylum in Switzerland after serious accused and abuse in the country and could not travel home. 6.august died Frangiza without some of the zones by his side after the hospital not took the necessary thought to cure hjarteproblema her. Today had first come out a few hours to participate in the funeral.
About time went tadsjikiske tryggleiksstyrker on board on a plane in order to remove the ten-year-old Fatima, bestemora and the uncle to her and prevent them from leaving Tajikistan. What wrong had they done? Mother is Fatima, Sjabnam Khudojdodova , political activist, and was not afraid to comment critically on the authoritarian rule of president Emomali Rahmon both in the homeland and in exile in Russia.
After trugslar about deportation also from Russia, went Sjabnam to Belarus, but was there imprisoned for eight months and threaten with deportation to Tajikistan on false speech about extremism.
When she after great effort from the Norwegian helsinki committee and the other was set free and should gjenforeinast with his daughter, was his daughter that had to suffer for moras political involvement and refused entry. Once again, it was only thanks be international pressure and assistance from organizations such as the Norwegian helsinki committee that Fatima finally got to travel out and could be gjenforeint with her mother in safety in Europe.
So lucky was not , Russian Anastasia Sjtsjevtsjenko . She is also a political activist, but in the organization Open Russia, with offices both in Russia and the united Kingdom. Anastasia was trebarnsmor and had a desire to contribute to that Russia would be a better country to live in for all.
While the Russian government put the british branch of the organization her on the list of introduced an unintended international organizations was Anastasia the very first of which is the anklaga to participated in the activities of the Russian branch, which is not even on the list. She risks six years in prison for his political activity after a law has been strongly criticized for undermining the organization and the freedom of speech.
Anastasia has a seat in house arrest since 23.January and was only allowed to leave home in a few hours the 30.January to visit the oldest daughter in the hospital. The seventeen-year-old girl were on the internatskule due to an incurable illness and was suddenly worse after his mother arrest. A few hours after that Anastasia finally had been given permission to visit her at the hospital, died the young girl.
at the same Time have his mother continue the fight against the Russian courts for the right to criticize a corrupt, authoritarian regime with a number of life on conscience.
the World is full of mødrer who want the best for their children and their family. But not all have to sacrifice just as much for the country they live in, to offer a future also for those who are not willing to compromise with justice and human dignity.
Send them like a thought in the day – Frangiza, Sjabnam, Anastasia or one of the other brave mothers like yourself working for change or to support the children who have taken the difficult option of helping others.
