Genocost 2024: A Call for Dignity and Justice.

Genocost 2024, Justice and Dignity

In 2013, the Congolese Youth Platform (CAYP) based in London challenged the legal framework of ‘genocide.’ Moved by the ongoing lack of democracy and justice, they created GENOCOST—a cry for justice against genocide for economic gain in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 1885.

This year, as we commemorate the 11th anniversary, join us in honouring the victims on August 2nd. Through this video, we are raising global consciousness. Stand with us in solidarity as we demand accountability and ensure that Congolese voices—our voices—are heard. Together, let’s ensure that the voices of our victims are never forgotten.
