“In Germany they first came for the communists and I didn’t speak up then because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up”.-Pastor M .Niemoller

A Message to the AU: Why Justice Matters

When African leaders assemble in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on June 30 for the African Union summit, they will discuss numerous challenges confronting the continent. No doubt economic and political issues will take center stage, but international criminal justice is also likely to be in the spotlight.

More than 125 African-based civil society organizations from more than 25 countries have come together to urge African leaders to use this important opportunity to show their support for the International Criminal Court (ICC) and to press for cooperation with the court. I am proud to be part of that effort. Read the rest of this entry »
