We have signed on to an Africa Faith & Justice Network petition to Congress and thought you might like to join us! It encourages members of Congress to take a closer look at a new bill that will provide critical development aid to northern Uganda. Most of it is very good, but there is a section that would allow the U.S. military to support an attack against the LRA - a potentially disastrous move for civilians in D.R. Congo.
AFRICOM and the U.S. military will not bring stability to Congo or Uganda. We must stay committed to a diplomatic approach that emphasizes peace and dialogue.
