Break The Silence #FreeCongo

Fridays For Future (FFF) Africa stands in unwavering solidarity with FFF DRC, extending our hearts to the victims enduring the double burden of conflict and climate crisis. The Congo Basin, our planet's vital carbon sink, diminishes daily under the weight of climate change and unchecked mining activities, exacerbating a humanitarian catastrophe displacing over 6 million people.
We cannot turn away from this stark reality: No Congo, No Phone, nor renewable energy. Ethics must guide every facet of our actions, from mining practices to safeguarding basic human rights.
The world cannot afford silence in the face of such urgent challenges. Join us in breaking this silence, for the sake of humanity and our shared future.

🌍 Join us for a Day of Action on May 17th! 🌍

Subject: Urgent Call to Investigate Human and Environmental Rights Abuse in the Democratic Republic of Congo Dear Citizens of the World, We, Fridays For Future Africa (FFFAfrica), representing concerned youth, individuals, and organizations from around the globe, urgently call upon the international community to address the grave human and environmental rights abuses occurring in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The DRC stands as the world's second-largest carbon sink, a crucial asset in combating climate change and preserving global biodiversity. However, the region's rich mineral deposits have led to conflict, exploitation, and unspeakable suffering for its people. In Goma, a silent genocide is unfolding before our eyes. Innocent children are displaced, subjected to slavery, rape, and murder, while families endure unimaginable horrors. The exploitation of child miners further compounds this humanitarian crisis. The tech industry's reliance on minerals like cobalt and lithium, sourced from the DRC, has propelled innovation but at a steep human cost. While the world seeks to transition away from fossil fuels, we cannot ignore the atrocities perpetrated in the name of progress. FFFAfrica urges international bodies like the United Nations (UN), African Union (AU), and European Union (EU) to support humanitarian efforts in the DRC. We demand immediate action from human and environmental rights bodies to investigate these atrocities thoroughly. It is imperative to ensure that the fundamental rights of the Congolese people are upheld and that ethical mining practices are enforced. We implore you to join us in solidarity with the victims of this genocide by signing this letter. Together, let us stand for justice, human dignity, and environmental preservation. An immediate stop to hostilities, safe passage for all people, and access to immediate humanitarian aid. Sincerely, Fridays For Future Africa
