Democratic Republic of Congo: Victims of brutal crackdowns between 2015 and 2018 deserve justice now

In the lead up to the December 2018 elections, we documented gross human rights violations in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The DRC government brutally clamped down on peaceful protests organized by the opposition and civil society groups against the extension of President Kabila’s time in power beyond the 10 years (2 terms of 5 years) allowed by the constitution. 

Between 2015 and 2018, 300 Congolese were killed in relation to this brutal repression, according to the UN. Youth were systematically and brutally attacked by security forces. Opposition members were systematically arrested, forced to flee into exile and prevented from freely expressing their opinions.

On 30 December 2018, the presidential elections were finally held, and Felix Tshisekedi was declared the winner. On 24 January 2019, he was sworn in as president, succeeding Joseph Kabila who held the power since 2001. President Tshisekedi’s   party, Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), has over the past three decades campaigned for justice and the rule of law in the DRC. Now in command, he can act against impunity in DRC.

Demand Justice for Dalit Killings in Nepal

A series of killings of young Dalits in Nepal, including a 12-year-old girl found hanging from a tree after she was forcibly married to her rapist, show that caste-based discrimination is rampant in the country. The government is failing to enforce laws against discrimination, the Dalit community needs protection, and the perpetrators must be brought to justice.

Given the involvement of local government representatives in both tragedies and the fears of the victims that justice will not be delivered, it is important that there is sustained pressure on the authorities.
