Please support Milouda!
There is no reason she should lose her job or be threatened and harassed simply for performing a necessary public service.
She was merely doing her job educating the public and raising awareness to combat the spread of AIDS, while working for an anti-AIDS nonprofit organization in a country that has 25,000 recorded cases of AIDS infected patients.
Now she's being harassed and threatened for causing embarrassment to the Muslim community, after she was shown on French TV educating Moroccan youth and prostitutes at an anti-Aids conference on how to apply a subtle technique to use a condom, especially when a sex partner refuses to use protection.
The spread of AIDS continues to be a global menace that affects us all!
Milouda should be hailed as a brave and courageous woman for going all out to raise awareness on a serious public threat and should NOT be ostracized for doing her job.
Clearly her intentions are good and not meant to cause harm or embarrassment to anyone.
Thank you for your attention to this critical matter.

Little trick with a condom cost Moroccan woman her career
RABAT - Milouda can be seen only briefly on the Internet. "But those ten seconds, have ruined my entire career," she says. Milouda is a Moroccan woman with a headscarf shown on a clip via Youtube, demonstrating how to put a condom on a penis with your mouth . She is being threatened ever since.Her aim was so praiseworthy. In the fight against AIDS, she wants to get prostitutes and young, inexperienced girls acquainted with the condom. Milouda worked at Doctors Without Borders for ten years she says on Tuesday on the Moroccan newspaper Akhbar Alyoum, and since 2007 she is working for the ALCS, a Moroccan anti-AIDS organization.In late March the ALCS organized a conference on HIV and AIDS in Casablanca. In response, the French news agency AFP made a movie about HIV and AIDS in Morocco, which was broadcast on French television. Afterwards, the clip ended up on Youtube.
It's a neat movie. Himmich Hakima, president of the ALCS, explains that in Morocco around 25 thousand people are HIV positive. An HIV patient says that no one dares to talk about her illness and we hear that condoms are not popular in Morocco.
The movie also shows what ALCS does in terms of AIDS prevention. One of the actions is a weekly briefing for prostitutes - and the camera zooms in on the educator, a woman with a black head scarf in the back with a condom. That woman is Milouda.Milouda explains how a prostitute can handle customers who do not want the condom. "If the customer does not want to, tell him that you have something new," says Milouda. "He will enjoy it." Milouda then crumpled the condom in her mouth and let it slide down on one of the colored fake penises in front of her on the table.[I think this is the part that's most telling]
Morocco's conservative Islamic party PJD said it was a disgrace. Sex education, fine, but this woman went into too much detail. She didn't need to say how men like to be satisfied. Even chief editor Rachid Niny of Al Massae, who is known as enlightened, thought this was a no no. The combination scarf and condoms, that was what most critics found repugnant.
