Support Democracy!

December 17 - The Democratic Republic of Congo is facing a constitutional crisis.  Protests are happening across the country, many led by young people.  Repression and violence has been the government's response to date. 

Telema (meaning "stand up!" in Lingala) is a large youth movement in Congo organizing on social media.  Follow them at  Donate to their cause.  Pray for peace.  Understand the context - read the recent article from Human Rights Watch.  Stay informed.
