#Telema means stand up in Lingala. It is a global Congolese movement unfolding both in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in the Diaspora.
Launched in the wake of the January 19, 2015 uprising in the Congo, #Telema aims to support, develop and sustain an organized popular movement in the Congo for peace, justice and human dignity.

"To educate the masses politically does not mean, cannot mean, making a political speech. What it means is to try, relentlessly and passionately, to teach the masses that everything depends on them; that if we stagnate it is their responsibility, and that if we go forward it is due to them too, that there is no such thing as a demiurge, that there is no famous man who will take the responsibility for everything, but that the demiurge is the people themselves and the magic hands are finally only the hands of the people." - FRANTZ FANON
