Good news indeed!

Efter två veckor ouppkopplad, (förutom två restauranger med wifi, då det inte riktigt varit läge att ta tag i en överfull inbox!) sitter jag barnsligt exalterad på kontoret och fröjdas åt vad roligt det är med detta nät!

Och vill då också dela med mig av ett meddelande jag nyss ätit mig fram till i mailboxen!

Dear Stina,

Today, after years of activist and international pressure, Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda walked into the U.S. Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda and asked to be transferred to the International Criminal Court.

Bosco (aka “The Terminator”) is one of Congo’s most notorious warlords and was one of the leaders of the M23 rebel group. Ntaganda is wanted for crimes against humanity, including the use of child soldiers, rape, and mass murder.

Last year, we joined together to call on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to support the arrest of Ntaganda. Because of today’s events, we now have a chance to see “The Terminator” brought to justice.

Having Bosco Ntaganda in custody and — more importantly — putting him on trial, will send a strong warning to other warlords operating in the region and provides a rare chance for justice for the people of eastern Congo who were victims of his violence.

As the situation continues to unfold, we will inform you of further opportunities to call for action.
