Peace and Development

Charlotte SimonA WOMAN HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PILLAR OF A SOCIETY. SHE IS A WIFE, A MOTHER AND A CARER. I AM AMAZED BY THE LOAD A WOMAN CAN CARRY. IN AFRICA, I HAVE SEEN WOMEN CARRY SUCH A BIG LOAD ON THEY BACK COMING FROM THE FIELD, A LOAD BIGGER THAN THEIR NORMAL HEIGHT JUST SO THEY COULD CATER FOR THEIR   FAMILIES. IN EUROPE I HAVE SEEN WOMAN WORK SO HARD JUGGLING BETWEEN THEIR JOBS AND HOME TO KEEP THEIR FAMILIES HAPPY.

Justina MutaleGenocide to Recovery in The Democratic Republic of Congo

Universal Peace Federation and Mothers of Congo Event

Lancaster Gate, London, Friday 21st March 2014

I would like to start by quoting Edmund Burke, who once said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men (and good women) to do nothing."

The issue of the genocide in the Congo is not just another African story.  It is a global issue. The lives and deaths of millions of innocent Congolese people, the death of these innocent men, women and children are directly linked to each and every one of us gathered here tonight.  In fact, in this age of modern technology, the lives and deaths of our Congolese brothers and sisters and their children are linked to each and every person on the planet who uses modern technology or benefits from its advantages.
