Local Protestors Bid To Highlight Congo Genocide (from Waltham Forest Guardian)

"IT'S not only Sir Bob Geldof who is interested in the plight of people in Africa.

Local resident Tuku Yoto, 35, is getting ready to take on Downing Street.

Mr Yoto, of Oliver Road, Leyton, along with over 500 protestors, will be taking part in a three-day demonstration to highlight genocide since 2001 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The three-day demonstration starts on Thursday, June 30, to mark the DRC's 35 years of independence from Belgium."
