Democratic Republic of Congo is bleeding and the world is silent about it

 Democratic Republic of Congo is bleeding and the world is silent about it!

Democratic Republic of Congo is bleeding and the world is silent about it!

If you travel through aeroplane  or if you're using a smartphone —know that

approximately 60% of the raw materials used in the production of your smart phones are gotten from the D.R.C. !!!

Congo's cobalt is used in the production of lithium-ion batteries used in smart phones such as iPhone and other gadgets.

There are many foreign companies in DRC such as Apple, Glencore, The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin etc who looting their resources and carrying away all the money while underdeveloping the region to keep the people in extreme poverty in order to maintain the status-quo of cheap labour in the D.R.C!

1) Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services.

2) Glencore plc is an Anglo-Swiss multinational commodity trading and mining company

3) The Boeing Company is an American  multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide.

4) Lockheed Martin Corporation is an American aerospace, defense, arms, security, and advanced technologies company with worldwide interests. 

Poverty and child labourers has become a norm in the D.R.C. Many children revealed horror of working in mines ⚒ because they have to risk their lives to mine cobalt for the multinational foreign companies in order for them to earn money to buy food and provide shelter for themselves.

Many Congolese child die when some these mines collapsed.

Due to the abundance of natural resources in D.R.C, these multinational companies are sponsoring insurgency in the region in order to keep the people in fear of controlling their own resources!

It has been estimated that over 6 million people have died in D.R.C since 1996 till now! Why is the turning blind eyes to the Congolese people? Why is nobody questioning or petitioning these multinational companies?

What is happening in D.R.C is happening in many other countries in Africa, but when a leader rise to nationalize these resources for his people, the rogue dictators from the outside world will demonize him and call him names or they'll get rid of him by assassinating him!

That was how Belgium  assassinated the first Prime Minister of D.R.C , Patrice Lumumba who refused to be their puppet. He was murdered, buried, his remains was later excavated, cut into pieces and dissolved in sulphuric acid. What kind of evilness and injustice is that?

Why do African Union continue to accept this indignity? I think African Union needs to understand that any acceptance of humiliation, indignity or insult, is an acceptance of inferiority! When are you going to stop these parasites from impoverishing our people? 

I keep asking the United Nations and United Nations Human Rights — why is it that our lives don't count in Africa? What exactly is the purpose of your organization if we as African people are being treated like second-class citizens of the world?
