Deka Issa Douhour

Corporal of the Djiboutian republican guard and a singer for the band who resigned June 5th 2020 due to the deplorable conditions of detention displayed by Fouad Youssouf Ali on facebook. As a result of this she was detained by the republican guard camp on June 12th for 27 days. She was separated from her two sons, age one and age three, during her detention. Because she stood up to the government she lost her job and was wrongfully detained. Deka was awarded the prestigious ROSA PARK INTERNATIONAL PRIZE for her courage and civic contribution to fight injustice and to do triumph over democracy, freedom and peace.
