#CongoIsBleeding
Democratic Republic of Congo has been at the centre of the deadliest series of conflicts since the Second World War

“The Great Congo Wars” which took place, essentially between 1994 and 2001. Of course conflicts continued in regions of the DRC after 2001.
In the boardrooms of mining corporations and munitions corporations in Europe, Canada and the United States the champagne and caviar are flowing.
With the goal of squeezing out every possible cent in order to have it flow into their already gorged coffers these human vampires have the blood of all of these victims on their hands. But it goes virtually unnoticed.
The corporations who provide the never-ending stream of reports on celebrity marriages do not find telling the truth about the system to be profitable. It would be interesting to learn how many members are on the board of mining and weapons companies, or maybe even all three.
But this will not bring back all of those lost lives. I remember these words from Nelson Mandela: “Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.”
I would add that the unbridled, profit-driven, death cult that is the weapons industry and the mining industry can also be overcome. It is definitely not natural. It is man-made. It can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.
