The situation in the Congo has escalated tremendously in recent days. Congo Global Action, Friends of the Congo, the Africa Faith and Justice Network and their allies are asking all people of goodwill and those who participated in Congo Week to participate in a vigil in support of the people of the Congo.
There will be a vigil in front of the Rwanda Embassy on Friday, October 31, 2008 from 4 pm to 6 pm EST. The vigil will address the escalation of tensions in the East of Congo and Rwanda's implication in the instability in the region.
The location of the vigil is:
1714 New Hampshire Ave NW
Washington, DC 20009
For questions, call 1-888-584-6510 or 202-884-9780 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
