Portrait of Congo's first Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba.

Lumumba inspires the current non-violent youth movements calling for free and fair elections and respect for the Constitution. For many Congolese, Lumumba is an icon of independence. He was assassinated in a U.S. Belgian plot to maintain influence over Congo and its resources in January, 1961.

Cassy Dale is a US-based illustrator and digital artist. She has been a Congo champion for years, lending her talents to the cause by raising awareness about past and present Congolese heroes.

“The political situation in Congo is bad right now. We don’t know whether or not elections will take place. There are almost no politicians that still support the people. They want to enrich themselves while keeping their people in poverty. I believe that in the past, Kabila was the democratically elected President. People believed he will work to develop our country and ensure peace. But now, he just needs to respect the Constitution as he said he would and schedule elections.

I will continue to denounce disrespect for the Constitution. I train and support women to be politically engaged. One day, if we have elections, they will be able to be candidates and win.

People must come together and support LUCHA RDCongo. The non-violent youth movement for democracy deserves our support. One day, each person in Congo must decide that enough is enough and take to the streets to protest disrespect for the Constitution.”

Every Monday, we share stories from Congolese peace leaders as part of our "I #StandWithCongo" series.
