Tonight we will focus the entire hour on the annual Spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, which will take place here in Washington DC, in our back yard, from April 14-15. What is the importance of these meetings for the African continent? Are these institutions still an important tool of US foreign policy on the continent, or are they in crisis? We will focus on the Democratic Republic of the Congo and discuss what role the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have played in the exploitation of the DRC’s resources, and how can we stop corporations from exploiting the Congolese people for profit. Join us at 9:00pmET on WPFW 89.3FM.

Guests:

Maurice Carney, Friends of the Congo
Sameer Dossani, 50 Years Is Enough

Nita Evele
