Event Description:

CONGO
CRISIS IN PERSPECTIVE
:
Artists, Activists, Researchers Speak Out.

The civil, regional and global war in the Eastern Congo has been going on
since 1996. During this period, more than 5.5 million people have
been killed—more casualties than in any conflict since WWII. An
estimated 1000 people die every day as a result of death and disease
resulting from war. Uncounted numbers of women and girls have been
brutally and systematically raped and tortured. Yet, one has to
search the media for any coverage at all. Reuters refers to the war
in Congo as “the forgotten crisis.” Please join us for a
series of upcoming events that will provide the Chicago community
with information about strategies, actions and organization for peace
and change in the Congo.
