Can the citizens of the Great Lakes region and their friends around the world project the picture of atrocities being committed by Kagame and Museveni into the homes of Westerners’ families? They know that most of these Europeans don’t have anything against them and would be appalled to learn more about those crimes, the responsibility of their governments, and do something about it

This is what the campaign Dying in the Great Lakes is trying to do. Please join us in Piccadilly Circus [London] on October 19th, 2013 from 11:00 am.

The group is inviting people especially living in London to participate to the event organised this coming Saturday 19/10/13 at Piccadilly Circus from 11:00 onward and denounce continuing atrocities being committed in the Democratic Republic of Congo where Congolese and Rwandan youth forced into fighting are killed in masses. And this has been going almost for the last 20 years. The West has become indifferent to that situation. The group is mobilizing Africans to come out in numbers to tell the West to stop their indifference.

Today in 1977, brotha Steve Biko’s life was taken in Azania / South Africa by the racist Apartheid regime

officially

he was actually already dead from having been captured and tortured by the Police almost a month before. he was then driven to Pretoria pointlessly. all he wanted was his people to be free: mentally, spiritually and culturally. that’s all most Africans want. he gave his life for the cause. our efforts may pale in comparison but… at least make the effort

only 30 years young
