René Claude Niyonkuru from L’Association pour la Paix et les Droits de l’Homme (APDH) in Burundi attended a human rights seminar in Helsinki in September and showed us some new grassroots comics. These very vivid and accomplished comics are used in village meetings in Northern Burundi in APDH's activities aimed at community awareness. Samples of the comics are shown below.
