The March 23 Movement, sometimes abbreviated as M23, is a rebel military group based in eastern areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), mainly operating in the province of North Kivu. It was formed on 4 April 2012 after close to 300 soldiers, all former members of the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), mutinied against the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC), complaining of poor conditions. General Bosco Ntaganda, also known as "The Terminator", has been accused of leading the group, and President Kabila called for his arrest on 11 April 2012. The group is currently involved in a conflict with the DRC, which has led to the displacement of large numbers of people. (via Freebase)
