Congo, Conflict and the Corporations: How Multinationals Are Fueling The Unrest In The DRC

International Rescue Committee says that as many as 5.4 million people have died from war-related causes in the Congo since 1998. A staggering 45,000 people continue to die each month, both from the conflict and the related humanitarian crisis. Amidst the deadliest conflict since World War II, hundreds of international corporations have reaped enormous profits from extracting and processing Congolese minerals. While people die, corporations are getting rich and the world community just looks on.

GUEST: Maurice Carney is the Executive Director of the Friends of the Congo. He has written extensively about the involvement of multinational corporations in fueling the unrest in the Congo.
