The NYT ran a story on the terrible problem of rape in the Congo. The story doesn't mention it, but this is "Breaking the Silence: Congo Week 2008."
On Wednesday, anybody can participate in The Cell Out.
At NDSU, we are running a general "Refugee Experience" simulation on Thursday. I've never tried to organize a simulation; should be interesting.
On Friday, I am participating in a more focused consciousness raising presentation.
Breaking the Silence: A Congo Week Presentation
Dr. Kevin Brooks, Department of English, will share information about
devastating wars that have resulted in nearly 6 million deaths in the
Democratic Republic of Congo since 1996. He will show clips from three
films that can start one’s education about the DRC, and he will
provide a guide to further resources. This presentation is part of a
global awareness initiative called Congo Week: Breaking the Silence.
The purpose of the Break the Silence Congo Week is to raise awareness
about the devastating situation in the Congo and mobilize support on
behalf of the people of the Congo.
