During his visit to Maela Refugee Camp, U.S. Congressman Joe Pitts said, "Ethnic minorities are not well known in Congress. That is why I am here. I will take back and report to the congress, to the International Relations Committee, to the Human Rights Sub-committee, to Human Rights Caucus, to our leaders about the plight on the terrible sufferings of the ethnic minorities that is not well known in Congress."
He continues, "Once we can get that information out and get more publicity in our press as well as around the world and we’ll get the word out in Britain in Jubilee Campaign, you know, in working in several countries."
"I think perhaps we can put more pressure on the international organizations to not only investigate but also act to stop genocide and there are many tools that we can mobilize," he added.
In conclusion he said, "I think if the international community is aware and the parliamentarians began to speak and call and educate the public opinion. I think the public will demand that something should be done."
