International Day of Non-Violence

Martin Kobler, chief of MONUSCO, advocates non-violence for lasting peace in DRC


Kinshasa, 2 October 2015 – “The road to non-violence is often the most difficult to follow, but it is the safest one to guarantee stability and social peace. Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela have demonstrated during their lifetime that non-violent action is not only possible but also the most effective way to obtain lasting and tangible results. The use of non-violence is a proof of courage and conviction,” declared Martin Kobler, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC.

Over the past twelve months, hundreds people were either killed or injured in attacks carried out across the country, especially in the east. Innocent victims, children, mothers and fathers were traumatized by the slaughters inflicted on the Congolese people.
