Somali protestors demand teacher resign over Mohammed cartoons
by Alex Stonehill and Alex Garland
Controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed hit home in Seattle recently, culminating in a protest outside of southend refugee service provider on Friday.
A group of Somali Americans gathered outside the Refugee Women's Alliance (ReWA) on Martin Luther King, Jr. Way to demand the resignation of a teacher who showed the cartoons to her teenage students on the day after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.
"We're not gonna be silent when it's something that's not right," said Hassan Aden, who was one of between 15 to 20 people who attended the protest. "We're trying to show that we're not happy with what she did."
