Flew from Prague to Mona stir/ Tunisia
5th June 2001, I and girl-friend travelled to Tunisia and there we stayed for ten days. We slept at the Brousten Hotel. We were a trip to Hammamet and Nabuel, which were particularly romantic and were much interesting. For example: Muslim town, fish-erman's wharf and the ocean.
A brief story about Tunisia
Tunisia is a country situated in the northern part of Africa. We knew well that in the 19th century Tunisia was of French Colony, after time existence. All the black people wanted a free country. They proved a high degree of enthusiasm so their aim was reached in the 20 century- now is a republic with a president as the head of the state. We visited Nabuel, which has many monuments and it is the leading producer of hand made souvenirs and carpets, too.
I and girl-friend visited a school for the deaf children and adults in Nabuel. We met the director of the school Mrs. Saad Hamida, PH D. and the other educators. She studied at the university of education in France, after studying needed to know how deaf children study at school. She made a system of oral. About 50-60 deaf children and adults attend the school. There they study to learn to read Arabian language, but they not do use much sign language. I brought the presents/ boileds and pens and papers/ for them. The deaf children were very pleased by them.
|We met at a school, Nabuel. She is as a director of the school for the deaf children and adults.||The building is named Tunisian Association for the Deaf People, school for the deaf children in Nabuel.||The students are making to draw the dishes. Saw some of students were really capable!|
It is quite bad, they do not know much sign language. I am sorry for them. I think I am convinced that all of educators need a better system of education of the disabled. I know the Tunisia Association of the Deaf people was not set these days to support the project for sign language etc. Really I want to support the deaf children in Tunisia. I was reading in a magazine that the Summit Organization of Africa Unit met in Zambia-Lusace. The summit is closed 38 years of existence of this organization, and it announced a change of the African Union (AU), after the model of European Union! I think that the best will be coallice countries, prepare in change information of educational in all Africa. Just send you the story to the world federation for the deaf people in Finland. I hope that it will help the deaf children in Nabuel. I must keep in touch with them.

About 9000 deaf British people demonstrated it.
July 8th 2001, was 70 000 for deaf people in England. 9000 of them went to
streets to demonstrate for the official recognition of the British Sign
A big procession of deaf people marched through the centre of London past the Victoria Station Big Ben and Westminister Abbey. They stopped at the Trafalgar Square and spoken the protest "Love Sign Language as their first language"
Famous Mr. Rachill Bastikar who works as a moderator of the television programme for the deaf people in England, called "See Hear". He informed that about 300 had been sent to the members of British Parliament. Several deputies answered. But during the demonstration none of them joined them. British Association of the Deaf and Federation of the Deaf people were preparing this project carefully the whole year. During this year managed to get about 51 000 signatures for legal acknowledgement of the British Sign Language. They sent their petition to British Prime Minister Mr. Tony Blair.
I think and I am feeling that the British people spoken the hardest and their
aim. It is an important things, because they are what live in future.
Of course, are used sign language as both language! Maybe the deputies are
accepted of their petition. "Put the rules of British Sign
I know well that the British Association of the Deaf people in England, which is still the hardest organization, all of voluntaries are working good, too.
