• CONGO: MBUJI-MAYI: DIAMOND TRADERS NERVOUS ABOUT REBEL ADVANCE

    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

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 government forces of Congolese President Laurent Kabila. The diamond trade is a crucial source of funds for the Kabila government. The vice governor of the province says its people are ready to defend the diamond-producing city. Six African governments are involved in the war -- Rwanda and Uganda have sent troops to help the rebels, and Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, have backed the government. A ceasefire was officially signed by African leaders last weekend in the Zambian capital Lusaka. The government and its backers have signed, but the rebels refused after a row over who was to head the mainstream Congolese Rally for Democracy the (R-C-D), which has split into two factions. The rebels say their war will continue, and the capture of Mbuji-Mayi and its diamond wealth threatens to deal a major blow to both the Kabila government and the peace process. Diamond traders talk of tough times ahead. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Prices (of diamonds) are rising everywhere. Traders are getting nervous and living conditions are not good at all." SUPER CAPTION: Eduard Kazadi, diamond trader But local newspaper headlines are optimistic: 'Ceasefire is on the horizon' and 'Victory for Yerodia," the Congolese Foreign Minister. But diamond traders know that if the rebels manage to take the city, their business is finished. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We the people of 'Kasai' do not want the rebels to take Mbuji-Mayi. Once they take the city we will not be able to trade diamonds anymore, and we expect there would be a famine." SUPER CAPTION: Zephyrin Kamanga, diamond trader At a grass roots meeting, the Vice Governor of Kasai province said it is Congo's neighbours who are to blame for the war. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Our country is the victim of an invasion by Burundi and Rwanda." SUPER CAPTION: Francois Kalala, Vice-Governor of the Province of Kasai Local citizens say they'll defend Congo's sovereignty, using the familiar language of the breakup of the Balkans into smaller states. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The national and international community must learn that we the people will always defend the sovereignty of our country. We will never accept the Balkanisation of the Democratic Republic of Congo." SUPER CAPTION: Rachelle Binene, attendee of meeting Most residents say they simply want peace. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We do not want war because war brings destruction. We want everybody to understand one another." SUPER CAPTION: Raymond Kapinga, resident of Mbuji-Mayi This is not how the authorities of Kasai see it. The Vice Governor puts on a more confrontational front, insisting that the people are united in wanting to defend the province if the need arises. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The enemy wants our wealth (diamonds) and even with the signing of the ceasefire they are still trying to capture the city, but the people are united and understand that they need to defend the province and support Kabila."

In small groups, bare chested, knee deep in murky water, they sieve gravel for hours until they spot the glitter of one tiny diamond. In town, we interview an illegal trader who compares diamond dealing to the blood diamond trade in a warzone. He takes out a small paper package from his trouser leg and slowly unwraps a cluster of uncut jewels. He carries them to bribe his way out of any difficult situations. The De Beers diamond cartel is keen to stop the illegal diamond trade. A spokesman maintains that most of Angola'’s diamonds are smuggled out the country and are therefore denied to the people of Angola. “We would like to develop a first class diamond field and build a proper mining operation. In this way the country can be further developed.” Local mining companies depend on private security firms to guarantee their safety.

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 African kingdoms were paying with their own people. In most instances, no violence was necessary to obtain those slaves. Contrary to legends and novels and Hollywood movies, the white traders did not need to savagely kill entire tribes in order to exact their tribute in slaves. All they needed to do is bring goods that appealed to the kings of those tribes. The kings would gladly sell their own subjects. (Of course, this neither condones the white traders who bought the slaves nor deny that many white traders still committed atrocities to maximize their business). This explains why slavery became "black". Ancient slavery, e.g. under the Roman empire, would not discriminate: slaves were both white and black (so were Emperors and Popes). In the middle ages, all European countries outlawed slavery (of course, Western powers retained countless "civilized" ways to enslave their citizens, but that's another story), whereas the African kingdoms happily continued in their trade. Therefore, only colored people could be slaves, and that is how the stereotype for African-American slavery was born. It was not based on an ancestral hatred of blacks by whites, but simply on the fact that blacks were the only ones selling slaves, and they were selling people of their own race. (To be precise, Christians were also selling Muslim slaves captured in war, and Muslims were selling Christian slaves captured in war, but neither the Christians of Europe nor the Muslims of Africa and the Middle East were selling their own people). Then the Muslim trade of African slaves declined rapidly when Arab domination was reduced by the emerging European powers. (Note: Arabs continued to capture and sell slaves, but mostly in the Mediterranean. In fact, Robert Davis estimates that 1.25 million European Christians were enslaved by the "Barbary States" of northern Africa. As late as 1801 the USA bombed Morocco, Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli precisely to stop that Arab slave trade of Christians. The rate of mortality of those Christian slaves in the Islamic world was roughly the same as the mortality rate in the Atlantic slave trade of the same period.) Christians took over in black Africa, though. The first ones were the Portuguese, who, applying an idea that originally developed in Italian seatrading cities, and often using Italian venture capital, started exploiting sub-Saharan slaves in the 1440s to support the economy of the sugar plantations (mainly for their own African colonies of Sao Tome and Madeira). The Dutch were the first, apparently, to import black slaves into North America, but black slaves had already been employed all over the world, including South and Central America. We tend to focus on what happened in North America because the United States would eventually fight a war over slavery (and it's in the U.S. that large sectors of the population would start condemning slavery, contrary to the indifference that Muslims and most Europeans showed for it). Even after Europeans began transporting black slaves to America, most trade was just that: "trade". In most instances, the Europeans did not need to use any force to get those slaves. The slaves were "sold" more or less legally by their (black) owners. Scholars estimate that about 12,000,000 Africans were sold by Africans to Europeans (most of them before 1776, when the USA wasn't yet born) and 17,000,000 were sold to Arabs. The legends of European mercenaries capturing free people in the jungle are mostly just that: legends. A few mercenaries certainly stormed peaceful tribes and committed terrible crimes, but that was not the norm. There was no need to risk their lives, so most of them didn't: they simply purchased people. As an African-American scholar (Nathan Huggins) has written, the "identity" of black Africans is largely a white invention: sub-Saharan Africans never felt like they were one people, they felt (and still feel) that they belonged to different tribes. The distinctions of tribe were far stronger than the distinctions of race.

French oil company Total has decided to abandon its ''Pointe-Noire Grand Fonds'' oil field in the Republic of Congo, citing the decrease in global oil prices, Jeune Afrique has reported. According to Total officials, 15 to 20 million dollars had been spent on this project yearly which produces about 12,500 barrels per day. According to an Executive Director of Total in Gabon, Congo authorities have understood the situation. The company had renewed its operating license just a year ago… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2016/06/29/congo-total-abandons-oil-field-citing-decrease-in-global-oil-prices Africanews is a new pan-African media pioneering multilingual and independent news telling expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa.

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. So, as my video shows... PROOF that the MOORS were the greatest Race Traitors black history has ever seen!

Thousands upon thousands of African Grey Parrots are are caught in the wild and exported to South Africa and emerging markets. Caught in nets and snares at drinking points. Chicks and eggs poached from wild nests. Hundreds dying during capture and transit when traders see them as having NO value. Fed on peanuts and crammed into crates like stuffed toys. Only when the trader drives away from the airport in South Africa do the remaining parrots become worth a lot of money. Who cares where they came from or what they went through to get there? We need to HALT all further imports of wild-caught African Grey Parrots into South Africa. Import levels have peaked at levels that make it impossible for local parrot breeders to compete and remain in business. We are seeing a trend developing that spells doom for African Greys in the wild. Stand up and be counted. Together we can stop this...
