The Orinda-Lafayette Presbyterian Congo Team has begun organizing a network that they can activate to pressure the U.S. government, as European activists have, to pressure the U.S. government to stop supporting the Rwandan and Ugandan regimes implicated in the Congo conflict and to help advance the cause of peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Rena Myers Dahlkamp, the team's coordinator, encouraged anyone who would like to become a part of their network to contact her at 925-247-0482.

FOTC's Maurice Carney said that targeting M23 officers in Congo was like slapping sanctions on street corner drug dealers instead of those really responsible, meaning President Generals Kagame and Museveni. Loyola University Professor Brian Endless told AfrobeatRadio he wasn't sure that was quite the analogy he'd choose, but it's close enough.

Global Rally for Congo November 28th

KPFA Evening News, 11.25.2011

Congolese, Rwandan and Ugandan activists are asking their allies to sign petitions, and call the office of UN Ambassador Susan Rice, to ask her to stop blocking a serious UN Security Council response to the latest report of the UN Group of Expert on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The report documents Rwandan and Ugandan backing and control of the M23 militia fighting in Congo. Last Monday the militia seized Goma, the minerals trading hub and capital of Congo’s North Kivu Province. KPFA spoke to Friends of the Congo's Student Coordinator Kambale Musavuli about why they are asking allies to call U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and attend a global rally for Congo on November 28th.
