LUCHA'S NONVIOLENT YOUTH-ORGANIZED FIGHT FOR PEACE, PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY
In working solidarity with LUCHA Youth Movement, Socent Studios is producing Arise Congolese! to share the ground-truth story of Congo's youth-organized fight to restore DRC's constitution back to power.
LUCHA (fight for change) is a nonviolent, non-partisan, youth-organized citizen movement made up of Congolese from all walks of life, origins and religions who share in a united desire for a truly independent, constitutional, democratic and prosperous Congo, and who militate for its advent through nonviolent actions.
Today LUCHA poses the greatest resistance to Congo's dictator, Joseph Kabila. As a result, LUCHA youth have been captured, tortured and killed by the Kabila-led state government.
Socent Studios stands with LUCHA in their nonviolent fight for peace, progress, and return to noble prosperity for all Congolese.
Since 2016 students and church leaders in the Democratic Republic of Congo have led non-violent protests demanding that Joseph Kabila, President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, allow for free and fair elections mandated by the Congolese Constitution.
Since then, Joseph Kabila has rebuked the Constitution and refused to step down as President. Protesters are being arrested, beaten and killed. Recently, Kabila's police have taken to firing live ammunition and tear gas at youth, church goers, and Priests.
In response to Kabila's lethal action against The People, U.S. Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) have introduced a resolution calling on President Kabila to hold peaceful elections by the end of 2018.
To our American readers, we at Socent ask you to join us in supporting life and liberty in Congo by encouraging your Senators to sign the Resolution below.
