The breaking news came this morning : after being rejected for the second time by the Senate in France, the Parliement and the Senate came to a final agreement : victims of incest and other sexual abuse will have 20 years after their majority (18) to press charges instead of 10 years. This is such an achievement, we have struggled so much in the last few months. So many of us, male and female survivors, members of http://www.inceste.org have had the courage to speak out, crushed the law of silence and stood up in front of the Senate house to protest for the very first time.
I am so emotional writing this message ! I want to scream it to the world !
We are now continuing the struggle to make sexual abuse against children a crime against humanity.
We have won ! I am so proud, so proud ! Now I am crying !
Love to you all
Caro

Caro I am so proud of my brothers in France for what has been accomplished. We have similar laws here. As a matter of fact I do not think that there is any limitation here.

Exellent mes amis

Thank you Howard ! We are currently developping programmes to talk in schools about sexual abuse and also we are continuing the struggle to make sexual abuse of children a crime against humanity.
Yes people can change the world ! One person can make the difference and remember: we are not alone anymore !!!!!
