UN on Congo: Dodd-Frank conflict minerals law increases conflict

 

KPFA Weekend News, 12.31.2011: 

A UN report says that the U.S.A.'s conflict minerals legislation, Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, is increasing rather than decreasing criminality and conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and that Bosco Ntaganda is now in control of minerals smuggling from the eastern Congolese city of Goma into Rwanda.  Ntaganda is commander of the CNDP militia that fought the Congolese army before being "integrated" into the Congolese army in January 2009. The Wikipedia identifies him as a Rwandan Tutsi and a former member of the Rwandan Patriotic Army, which seized power in Kigali, Rwanda's capital, in 1994.

Occupy Wall Street emerged in September 2011 as a movement against growing income and resource inequality. Can it find a way to stand with the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who have the lowest standard of living in the world, and the greatest number of war dead in any sustained conflict since World War II?

WBAI AfrobeatRadio host Wuyi Jacobs spoke to Kambale Musavuli and Bodia Macharia of Friends of the Congo, New York City and Toronto chapters respectively, Nita Evele of the Washington D.C.-based Congo Coalition, Jacques Bahati of the Washington D.C.-based Africa Faith and Justice Network, independent journalist Ann Garrison, Stanford Says No to War Founder, Occupy activist and writer Adam Hudson, and William Mitchell Law Professor, former National Lawyers' Guild President and international criminal defense attorney Peter Erlinder.
