Laurent Nkunda, leader of the National Congress for the Defence of the People, allied with the MRC in July 2006.

The government pardoned all previous crimes he may have committed.

The MRC, the FNI, and the Front for Patriotic Resistance of Ituri (FRPI) agreed to disarm on August 22, 2007.

Famous quotes containing the words revolutionary movement and/or movement:

    Women, because of their colonial relationship to men, have to fight for their own independence. This fight for our own independence will lead to the growth and development of the revolutionary movement in this country. Only the independent woman can be truly effective in the larger revolutionary struggle.

    The parallel between antifeminism and race prejudice is striking. The same underlying motives appear to be at work, namely fear, jealousy, feelings of insecurity, fear of economic competition, guilt feelings, and the like. Many of the leaders of the feminist movement in the nineteenth-century United States clearly understood the similarity of the motives at work in antifeminism and race discrimination and associated themselves with the anti slavery movement.
    Ashley Montagu (b. 1905)
