    Having spent some time in the eastern congo volunteering I must say thank you for bringing attention to the area. One thing to point out is that there are some amazing local groups doing work over there.
    In particular it is worth checking out heal africa http://healafrica.org/cms/
    They do very good work and are worth supporting (no, i don’t get any kick backs)

    Sadly, this is just one of many holocausts that will be continued to be ignored because it can’t be used as a weapon in our local, parochial politics. If you can’t use it to bash Jews or Yanks, no one wants to hear about it.

    A few years back a bunch of the Twa (we’d call them “Pygmies”) somehow managed to make it to New York to complain to the UN about their upcoming, violent extinction. They just got blank stares and a few questions about “..but what does this have to do with the Palestinians?”

    I would be pleasantly surprised if the thread here was devoid of comments about how criticism of the behaviour of any Africans is racist and a prelude to an invasion next week.

    Begin sarcasm:
    Because, as we all know, there is nothing in between sitting around on our fat assess going “Tut, tut!” and a full-blown military invasion and occupation.
    End sarcasm:
