Congo: From Lumumba to Neo-colonialism

Friday 14th – 6pm – Nuffield G13
The conflict within the Democratic Republic of the Congo has to date claimed the lives of over 5 million people, but has been a crisis poorly covered by the Western media – suppressed by neoimperial interests and impulses including conflict materials and the rich resource reserves in the region.The Pan African Students Union, along with Birmingham ACS and BEMA, invite you to an evening discussing the history and current situation of the crisis, as well as what diasporic youth and students can do to raise awareness of the conflict in the DRC.

Featuring guest speaker
Benoit Mussanzi wa Mussangu, Chairman for Centre Resolution Conflicts (CRC) in both the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the UK, and a current PhD student at Bradford University.

We look forward to seeing you there.
