Kenya & Colombia: Sex against the power and violence!


National sex boycott in Kenya
 
In April 2009, the leaders of the G10, a group of associations of Kenyan women decided to practice a national boycott sex for a week, from April 29 to May 6, 2009 to compel Kenyan leaders to put their differences to bring about political reforms (especially crucial reforms on the ground, youth unemployment, or a new constitutional framework). The sex strike observed including the wife of Prime Minister, Mrs. Ida Odinga was an unexpected success!
        
Following this unexpected abstinence, James Kimondo decided to pursue four leaders of the movement in the High Court in Nairobi. "Since the women called for the boycott sex, my wife refused to perform his conjugal duties. This caused me anxiety and insomnia."
        
He spoke to reporters of "anxiety, stress, headaches and poor concentration."

Colombia: Operation "legs tight" against violence

         In September 2006, to compel their fellow criminals or killers to settle down, hundreds of women had started a sex strike in Pereira, the bloodiest city in Colombia.
        
At the initiative of the mayor of Pereira (ex-Antiguo Cartago), located in western Colombia, girlfriends and wives of hundreds of young offenders and killers Colombians decided to start "a strike of the thighs tight ".
         At the origin of this unusual initiative, Julio Cesar Gomez, head of security for mayor of Pereira: “Work has been done on young women to cease to be perceived as sexy, their companions when they are armed and wearing military fatigues."

         The motto is simple: "Refuse to have sex with your partner for a week unless it agrees not to carry weapons or not to be violent."

        
Young women were convinced by the approach: "This is our way to explain to our spouses that we do not want to be widows and our children deserve to be educated by a father. I'm sure that with such arguments they will hear us," said a mother of two children, aged 18.
        
According to official statistics, 90% of deaths in Pereira are due to firearms, and 84% are victims of gangs, aged 14 to 25 years. It has 500 homicides per year.
        
Capital of the department of Risaralda and the coffee region "Eje Cafetero" west of Bogota, nicknamed "The City without doors," Pereira with a population of over 800,000 people received the title of Cultural Capital Americas in 2002
