In light of the escalating humanitarian and human rights crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Amnesty International will be holding an International Day of Action on November 23. AI USA will organize an emergency rally in front of the White House at 2pm on Sunday, November 23, in order to raise awareness about the crisis. We will call on the US government to support the UN peacekeeping mission and to commit to a long term involvement in human rights issues in the region.
For more information please see our DRC country website at www.amnestyusa.org/drc and our flyers:
