Flag of the Democratic Republic of the Congo ​​WBAI Talk Back, on the post-election political crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Occupy Wall Street, and international solidarity, 12.21.2011:

Occupy Wall Street emerged in September 2011 as a movement against growing income and resource inequality. Can it find a way to stand with the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who have the lowest standard of living in the world, and the greatest number of war dead in any sustained conflict since World War II?

WBAI AfrobeatRadio host Wuyi Jacobs spoke to Kambale Musavuli and Bodia Macharia of Friends of the Congo, New York City and Toronto chapters respectively, Nita Evele of the Washington D.C.-based Congo Coalition, Jacques Bahati of the Washington D.C.-based Africa Faith and Justice Network, independent journalist Ann Garrison, Stanford Says No to War Founder, Occupy activist and writer Adam Hudson, and William Mitchell Law Professor, former National Lawyers' Guild President and international criminal defense attorney Peter Erlinder.
