A Petition from Amnesty International:

"The situation in the DRC remains on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe. The priority at the moment is reinforcing the capacity of the UN’s peacekeeping force, MONUC, to protect civilians and to ensure people have access to humanitarian assistance. At least 250,000 civilians, most of them women and children, were displaced by the recent fighting. These people are in a desperate situation, without sufficient food, water, medical supplies or shelter.

"Call on the US government to ensure that the UN Security Council takes further steps to protect civilians in eastern DRC."

      There are far too many civilians in DRC, who have been killed, who died from lack of food or medical help due to the war and far too many women have been raped.

      I feel this is an important pledge becuase innocent tamils and singalams are getting killed because of this war. If the government wants to fight then why not fight with the tamil tigers instead of killing many innocent people. This problem between the tamil tigers and the government will get bigger and bigger. Please Obama take a stand to stop this ancient war that has been going on for too long.

      thank you

      EVERYONE LISTEN UP!!! we can't let innocent people suffer so horribly! It IS our responsibility as a greater nation to step up to the plate and help them! If you were starving somewhere every night, waiting for some outside force to save you, wouldn't you want your prayers to be answered? I know i would!!!
