Why is the DR Congo Genocide Being Ignored?
A Talk by Professor Yaa-Lengi Ngemi, an international expert and consultant on Africa, historian, scientist, author, and lecturer.
March 2, 2011, The Brecht Forum, New York, USA
Moderator: Wuyi Jacobs
An article by Yaa-Lengi Ngemi (2017): Why Is AIPAC Inviting Paul Kagame To Speak At Their Annual Conference?
Where are the world’s investigative media, democratic governments, and the United Nations pledge of “NEVER AGAIN”? Blackmail, corruption? Or is the “Never Again” pledge ONLY applicable to Jews? Is that why to AIPAC an African holocaust or genocide does not matter?
He is also the author of the book Genocide in the Congo (Zaire): In the Name of Bill Clinton, and of the Paris Club, and of the Mining Conglomerates, So It Is! (2000)
Ryszard Kapuściński said in 2006:
My experiences come from the Third World. In my opinion, because the 9/11 took place in the USA, it was given the publicity on the American scale, i.e. gigantic. From my point of view – too big. Of course this attack had huge impact on our times, but I think there are many more important events from the point of view of the whole humanity. I myself have been a witness of far worse scenes. I was in the Congo. That was in the beginning of 1961. From that time till this day there is bloodshed in this country. Non-stop there is war. According to the assessments of international institutions 4 million people have died since that time. This is – given the number of citizens – a small country! These are gruseome statistics! Horrendous numbers! People are still dying there. And who didn’t die or was killed, is a disabled person. If not physical, then for sur psychical. So the tragedy of 9/11, among other tragedies of the 20th and 21st century, is just one of many. The difference is that cameras were not present during other tragedies .
Professor Yaa-Lengi Ngemi also spoke about the Congo on April 20, 2011 in New York City during the Q&A session of the meeting about Libya, Ivory Coast and the future of Africa [from 1:07:20 till 1:11:34 in the following video]:
