>Usually a spoonful of sugar & so on. Not now, though we are refraining from showing the worst of the photos of children. Please read the BBC's (Q&A Congo), or go here for the latest on Congo. If you're reading this, please go to Raise Hope for Congo, the Enough Project. If you're in the UK, France, or anywhere else, contact your governmental agency for international affairs. Something must be done & it can be but people must put pressure on their government. France has been trying to convince EU member countries to contribute troops but the answer has been an inexcusable "no."

From ABC News: Congolese women demonstrate in Goma, eastern Congo, Nov. 14, 2008, against war-related violence in the northern Kivu province. About 300 women responded to the demonstration called by local women's groups and nongovernmental organizations. The signs read: "Do you want us to also take weapons?" and "We are crying for our children killed in Rutchuru."
