PRAGMATIC & EFFECTIVE PEACEBUILDING

2015 07 03 Fred Bauma

URGENT!

FREE OUR COLLEAGUE, FRED BAUMA 

110 DAYS IN PRISON. 

#FreeFred 

110 days ago, on Sunday March 15, Fred Bauma was arrested along with 30 others for peaceful demonstrations. Today, Fred and his colleague Yves Makwambala are still in prison. Fred is the President of La Lucha, a youth organization based in eastern DR Congo that fights for change. The number 1 principal of La Lucha is non-violent action.

I know Fred personally and I know other members of La Lucha. These are brave young men and women who risk arrest and torture to peacefully demonstrate on issues that matter to them and their community — clean water, police brutality, democracy.

YOU CAN BE A PEACEMAKER

4427921003_4x6In Syria, four-year-old boy walks with his family across the desert to get to a UN refugee camp. In the DR Congo, a 15-year girl is taken by rebels to be a commander’s sex slave (‘wife’, he says). In Kosovo, a brave young mother passes her 2-year-old through the barbed wire fence into his grandparents’ waiting hands, and safety, on the other side.

How many times have you watched these events unfold right in front of you on the news and wished there was something concrete you could do to help?

Pragmora provides you with the means to take action and to be an effective peacemaker.

Pragmora’s next advocacy campaign launches in May — for the DR Congo.
