Some 10,000 people took the streets of Bukavu, provincial capital of South Kivu, in a peaceful demonstration to demand payment of back salaries by state functionaries and against the wide insecurity. As referred to MISNA by sources of the Catholic Radio Marie broadcast, contacted earlier in the east Congolese city, students, teachers, merchants, police and soldiers, accompanied by religious figures of all confessions, took the streets this morning at 9:00a.m. local time, to make the government understand that the people are ready to dictate their own future. If authorities do not pay the salaries, say the demonstrators, they will not pay taxes. The population of Bukavu is also demonstrating against the violence that continues afflicting the region, theatre to an armed attack on July 9 that resulted in at least 39 victims.
