There is no need to say that young people of the 21rst century are indeed facing challenges regarding exclusion, discrimination and violence. Institutions, civil society and governments are aware of that. However we still experience some disappointing discussion with Member States when it comes to promote the concept of ‘’democratic innovation’’ (one of the priority of the director general of Democracy of the Council of Europe).

Last night there was a 'Remember the Congo' event held by Mothers of Congo and Universal Peace Federation (UPF)-UK as a part of Black History month. Speakers included 'Mama' Charlotte Simon (photo left), founder of Mothers of Congo, Humphrey Hawksley, BBC World Affairs Correspondent, who has made two documentaries on the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tatiana Giraud, the founder of the TG Foundation that supports several clinics for the care of rape victims and Florence Billi, who made an impassioned plea for an end to the suffering the people in the North and South Kivus. The documentary 'Crisis in the Congo' shocked many of those present when shown during the evening. A number of those who spoke later said they had been moved to tears by the images of the brutal treatment of the Congolese people during more than 120 years.
