December 7, 2009:

San Diego State University hosted Silent Cry committed from United Kingdom to bring an unprecedented attention to the current struggles that behalf's the Ogaden Community region, which currently inhabits ogaden people, as well as many other ethnicties. Silent Cry film was showed to the audience followed with an intense Question and Answers session, and an outstanding plea of action from everyone as a community. " Every one needs to get involved and take action against the oppression that is currently taking place in the Ogaden region by the Ethiopian government" this was the message that I felt resonated with me after watching the short film documentary Silent Cry. Below are few pictures of the audience, one can not help but notice the amount of diversity displayed in these photos, how we as students of the future can come together and be agents for change.
