30 Days of Advocacy Against Witch Hunts

I'm sure you have read the stories, innocent people being beaten, maimed and murdered, in Africa,  because they are thought to be witches. They are not witches. Like many before, they are helpless, outcast, victims of someone's perversion of religion. Please add you voice to protest these human rights abuses.

I have forwarded my letter as recommended at the above site. If you wish to add your signature, all you have to do is copy and past, then email the letter as directed. 

In addition, as suggested,  I will be lighting a candle each day, beginning today, March 29, through April 27 in memory of the many victims - children, women, men - who suffered horrible and violent deaths at the hands of maniacs killing in the name of their god. I cannot even imagine the terror of these people - the children tortured and killed, an elderly woman doused with kerosene and set on fire after being tortured. Can this really be happening in this day and age? Yes, it is happening and we all must do what we can to stop it. 

Even if you are not Pagan or a witch, I know you cannot condone these horrors. Please, let yourself be heard, add your voice. Click on the link above for more information about what you can do. 
Blessings nine!


  1. Beautiful post on awareness of the witch hunts in Africa. I will be posting on it this month also. Thank you :) I'm also following you now!

  2. Thanks for posting this. Stepping Stones Nigeria and their Nigerian partner organisations have launched a global campaign to Prevent Abuse of Children Today (PACT), especially those who've been accused of witchcraft and subsequently abused, abandoned and at risk from traffickers. To help end this terrible abuse please add your name to the PACT: www.makeapact.org
