DRC: Demonstration for Congolese in Belgium

Renouveau Congolais announces (Fr) that Debout Pour Le Congo [Stand Up for Congo] is organizing a demonstration today in Liege, Belgium against the “regular explusion [of Congolese] in collaboration with the Congolese government, author of many crimes and ongoing violations of human rights.” The demonstration will also demand that Belgium take a “different look at the Congolese's situation in Belgium in light of the history linking the two peoples.” DPLC also asks that Betu Bernard's asylum petition be granted. Betu Bernard is a UDPS member who was arrested and beaten by Congolese authorities during a demonstration against the prolonging of the transition period last June.
