RD Congo: the sacrifice of the innocent, the greed of the multinationals and the regional political interests

Conference
Aug 11 2016  9:00 - 11:30

Greed for raw materials brings the Western and Chinese multinationals to turn a blind eye to the killings of innocent people and to promote a regional policy of chaos in order to better exploit the country’s resources. In particular, it will be presented the case of eastern Congo, where people are sacrificed to economic (multinationals), political and regional interests (Rwanda and Uganda) and the maintenance of political chaos, carried out by the current President Joseph Kabila of Uganda. At the closing, will be presented some examples of peaceful resistance: LUCHA (struggle for the change of the youth of Goma) and Beni-Lubero.com site of Fr. Vincent Machozi, Assumptionist, who was assassinated in March.
