Posted August 19, 2013 from Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security. This is seen in some counties, for others it is just a dream.The following drama happened in DR. Congo the previous day: a group of people holding guns attacked MUTARULE in UVIRA territory/ South Kivu. They killed 10 persons among them 5 children under 10 years of age, burnt houses and 4 injured persons. This drama happened not far from Congolese military camp, police station and United Nations peace keepers in KAMANYOLA. None of the intervened. The bad news is that there is no investigation so far so as to identify assailants. Can you imagine? a country where we have institutions, a great number of international and governmental organizations with human right activists. A country where there are more 17 thousand United Nations peace keepers.If really all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, why can't the same principle of protecting human rights be applied for at least 90 percent of people around the world? love is what we have to share, not sadness. As soon as we privilege discrimination in terms of Human Development, we will not achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
