Solidarity action: I walk with
At the International Women's Pre-Synod 2018 the solidarity action "I walk with..." was transferred for another year. After Suzan Mark from Nigeria and her commitment to gender justice and peace for disadvantaged women were at the centre of the action at the last women's presynod in June 2017, it is Obertina Johanis from Indonesia who will be in charge until the next women's presynod in 2019. The pastor is a financial manager and consultant in the "Pasundan-Durebang", a centre for victims of human trafficking and domestic violence in Bandung. It belongs to the Pasundan Church (GKP). Obertina fights intensively against human trafficking and for the rights of young migrant worker girls who go in large numbers to Hong Kong or Malaysia and are often abused and exploited there. Many of them return to Indonesia heavily traumatised, if alive at all.
