Congo

Posted by PoliticsWTF on May 1, 2008

I’m recently coming to realise that here are some evil things going on in Congo, much worse that I have ever heard before. These acts show how true the hatred of women is there. Some are so horriffic that my utter and complete disgust cannot be put into words. The systematic rape of women and girls is being carried out in the Democratic Republic of Congo every day as a result of conflict. The problem is epidemic.

Anxious Black Woman lists the tonnes of people who blogged about this, so go over and check them all out. I heard about these two links from the F Word and the Burning Times respectively: Zawadi is a woman who lives in the Congo, her story (note: the contents is very disturbing ) can be heard here. This is about a film called the greatest silence: Rape in the Congo. The video at the bottom of the page is just…..unbelievable.
