Congolese from Chicago plans a rally against Rwandan President General Paul Kagame on Saturday, June 11, 2011


The Congolese people from Chicago, Illinois, would like to invite you to come join them this Saturday, June 11, 2011 for a public protest against the presence of the Rwandan President, General Paul Kagame.

Paul Kagame has single-handedly been pointed as the person responsible for the instability in the Democratic Republic of Congo in order to enrich himself and his cronies by the UN Mapping Report on Congo published in October 2010.

Paul Kagame’s actions in the Congo have resulted in the death of 5 million Congolese people according to the United Nations and various humanitarian organizations.

Paul Kagame has provided support to various Congolese rebels who have enlisted child soldiers in their militia and raped women such as Laurent Nkunda.

Paul Kagame has stated that he will not extradite the notorious militia man, Laurent Nkunda, to the Congo or any international tribunal so that he could face justice because Nkunda is his personal guest in Rwanda.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health in May 2011 concluded that more than 400,000 woman and girls between the ages of 15 to 49 were raped in the Democratic Republic of Congo over a 12-month period in 2006 and 2007 or an average of 48 women and girls are raped every hour.

If you do not approve what General Kagame has done to the Congolese people, join us at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 151 East Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601, at 10:00 am to express your indignation for the atrocities he has committed in the Congo and your disapproval of his presence in Chicago.
