Posted by on January 01 1970 00:01:33

The Congo Reform Association exposed gross and rampant abuses of labour and by public servants in King Leopold II of Belgium's Congo Free State, leading to the annexation of Congo by Belgium in 1908. In March 1904 Dr. Henry Guinness (1861-1915), Edmund Dene Morel and Roger Casement founded the Congo Reform Association. The movement was formed to aid the impoverished workforce of the Congo by drawing attention to their plight.

A J Moreton Bell is recorded in the Times ( Dec 23 1908) as Chairman of the Stroud Auxillary of the Congo Reform Association.
