French/Nat At the same time some of the states involved in the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo signed up to a peace agreement last Saturday, rebels were advancing the diamond capital of Mbuji- Mayi. Some reports say the rebels may have taken the southern city of Kabinda, an important staging-post on the road to Mjubi-Mayi, only 100 kilometers away. APTN visited the town and discovered that diamond traders fear their business may collapse. Diamond traders are nervously watching rebel movements towards their city and fear that even a ceasefire won't stop the advance of the rebels. They say the market is jittery, with nervous trading pushing up prices. Mbuji-Mayi - the capital of the Kasai province - is heavily defended by Zimbabwean troops who back the govern...

For minerals to remain truly conflict-free, their flow has to be kept separate from tainted materials. It’s a challenge. The mines validated as conflict-free can be just a few hills away from those controlled by armed groups. And the trade is messy, with miners and mineral traders operating independently and constantly on the move across the region. Conflict minerals can easily leak into the supposedly clean supply chains. See more here: https://www.irinnews.org/feature/2017/02/09/who-pays-hidden-price-congo%E2%80%99s-conflict-free-minerals

The hidden history of Arab Muslim slave trade of Africans
http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/slavetra.html 1117: Slavery abolished in Iceland. 1214: The Statute of the Town of Korčula (today in Croatia) abolishes slavery. 1335: Sweden (including Finland at the time) makes slavery illegal. In 1807 Britain outlawed slavery. In 1820 the king of the African kingdom of Ashanti inquired why the Christians did not want to trade slaves with him anymore, since they worshipped the same god as the Muslims and the Muslims were continuing the trade like before. What these records show is that the modern slave trade flourished in the early middle ages, as early as 869, especially between Muslim traders and western African kingdoms. For moralists, the most important aspect of that trade should be that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the Af...

Anyone denying there were black Moors is deluded. Research the term "black-a-moor." Were there any other races of Moors as well? -- I'm sure there were. The Moors were an integrationist group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpoAM_fxa54 They were a group of Arabs and Black Africans who had accepted Islam, and later they included Europeans once they settled there. Hence the whites who identify as Moors today, even though the word itself means swarthy. And from there we have a hodgepodge of moorish history, traditions and ideas. Ultimately, this video is NOT intended as a conversation to wypipo. This is a black conversation from one black person to others. Wypipo continue to show their obsession with poking their lice-infested nose and opinions where they are neither wanted nor requested. ...
