I heartily encourage students around the world and all those who desire for a lasting peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to participate in this event, which runs from October 19-25, 2008. I especially encourage the students to make this your event to share with the Diaspora. Do not allow the programs and their talking points to be facilitated by foreign policy think-tanks that present themselves as human rights groups. Stick to the Diaspora-based sponsors. Ask the difficult questions and discuss them openly. You can help bring lasting peace to the Congo, both collectively and individually.
