    I am Congolese and always sympathise with any action regarding my country. But while we are marching to contest or protest “Others” with diferent objectives and interests are seeing opportunities for profit. What are our benefits or priorities? Is it to see kabila out, to have water and electricity running 24hrs/7, free school for every child in congo, improved housing and welfare conditions, fight corruptions or stop multinationals dealing for their own benefit. We should be able to follow and understand that when the world talks about climat change, how does it affect comgolese? What can we do about it, marching or learning more to contribute effectively? The world is moving fast we may not catch it but we can do more to influence changes in Congo. to
