DRC Congo- Rebels continue to use the defense of an ethnic group as a defense, and first world woes as a cover to perpetrate their actions

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Agenzia Fides 10/10/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Agenzia Fides reports (10/10/08) that using the media fog over Africa, the excuse of the defense of an ethnic group, and the misdirection of the global attention to internal issues such as financial issues, and terrorism- the Congo rebels continue to wage war on their government- displacing 1.2 million people.

Unlike Sudan- countries like the DRC, and Somalia which also are facing unjust aggression, and internal conflicts from different parties against others and for their own benefit- do not receive the needed media attention to help stem the tides of these conflicts and humanitarian situations- rather- these stories are oft kept out of the media- and when they appear in it, often nothing is done to better the situations- leaving western citizens believing the situations either solved, or because of inadequate efforts in the past and present to stop these conflicts- that they will not be solved by external aid.
