War in the Congo

Almost total­ly unre­port­ed in the U.S. media, the wars in Cen­tral Africa are get­ting even more bloody. Reports of the most bru­tal mas­sacres are com­ing out of the Congo’s Ituri province. Make sure to read Sarah Left’s fact­sheet explain­ing the war. From the UK Guardian, once again one of the few sources of good infor­ma­tion on inter­na­tion­al affairs. There’s also a good intro in June 18th’s Coun­ter­punch What’s Behind the Killing in Cen­tral Africa?.
