“Our future is slavery, West gets everything”

https://www.rt.com/news/395079-congo-minerals-documentary-mining/

RT Documentary travels to the vast, landlocked Democratic Republic of Congo, prized for its mineral resources, but plagued by centuries of colonial rule, dictatorship, civil wars and lawlessness, and meets people trying to make a living in one of the most desperate places on Earth.

The documentary crew’s key to understanding the country, seven times the size of Germany, was Bernard Kalume Buleri, born in 1960, the same year DRC was granted its independence from Belgium. Buleri served as an interpreter, guide, and finally the hero and symbol of the country, having been a direct participant in some of its bloodiest chapters.

“I can’t say that the Congolese, we are in control of our destiny. No, because the ones who benefit from our minerals are not the local population, but Western countries are the ones who are taking everything. They make themselves rich, while we are getting poorer and poorer,” says Buleri.

The country of almost 80 million is one of the world’s largest exporters of diamonds, coltan – essential for electronics – and has massive deposits of copper, tin and cobalt.

“I’m afraid even for my children. Because they will continue in this system to be slaves forever. We’ll never be powerful enough to challenge the Western countries. So, the future will be the future of slaves,” Buleri continues.

  1. a trump EO was leaked early on that said they were going to remove the restrictions on american companies that limit their ability to buy ‘conflict’ minerals. obviously, companies are buying the stuff right now – they get (corrupt) certification companies in ghana and elsewhere to ‘certify’ the minerals as being conflct-free. there are ‘non-conflict’ mines e.g. in brazil, but the african stuff is still cheaper.
