Message to the US Administration: Militarization is NOT The Answer

Americans and others in the West often ask what does the conflict in Congo have to do with us? Well, our governments continue to finance, train and arm destructive forces in Congo. Both the New York Times and Washington Post have reported US backing of military operations by Rwanda and Uganda, the United States staunchest allies in Central Africa. Both governments are responsible for gross human rights abuses, crimes against humanity and according to the United Nations maybe even genocide. In addition, both governments and their business elites have systematically looted the Congo.

Let your governments know that the militarization of the Congo in particular and Africa in general is not the answer and certainly NOT the change the people of Africa is looking for from a new U.S. Administration. Take Action Now>>
