Since the month of April 2012, North Kivu has been facing a serious crisis as a resultof the insurrection of certain elements of the Armed Forces of the Democratic
Republic of Congo, insurrection that has been transformed later on into an
aggression of the DRC.
And since then, a humanitarian crisis has followed with 1 million or so of internally
displaced people and about 100.000 Congolese forced to cross the borders either
with Rwanda or Uganda.
Sometimes without substantial assistance, these men, women, children and old
people innocently die, some on their wandering ways and others in their places of
concentration often resulting from the lack of efﬁcient care.
IS NOT THE SILENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY GUILTY?
Since the crisis started in North Kivu, speeches have been made about “we are
concerned, we are carefully following what is taking place in the Eastern part of the
DRC, we request that all the external support to the M23 be stopped, we warn
against any attack on the United Nations, we are going to take to court such or such person…” end of quote.
