"APRES MOI, LE DELUGE." These are the infamous words spoken by the western backed dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, who ruled over the Congo -- which he renamed ZAIRE in 1972 -- from 1965 to 1997. Mobutu's prescient warning provedfar more true than anyone could have predicted.
The violence in the Great Lakes region of Africa has not subsided. At present, there are more than 500,000 refugees and some 2 million displaced persons in the region. There are all kinds of nasty lies and distortions and propaganda being printed about Central Africa -- being produced across the political spectrum, from the Nation magazine to the New York Times to the BBC.
Please watch this 27-minute video of selected interviews and support this documentary film and book project. We have changed the working title of the film to LE DELUGE (THE DELUGE). The video below is not the film, and it is not the trailer for the film: it is merely selected interviews compiled together to create a promotional tool.
The Congo is all over the news, but few of the most basic facts are ever told. Facts like the presence of Banro Gold Corporation, or how DHL (the shipping company) participates in the theft of minerals from Congo, or the involvement of US officials like Roger Winter (see: Special Report: Exposing US Agents of Low-Intensity Warfare in Africa), or the propaganda roles of academics like Dr. Eric Reeves at Smith College.
We know the names of the people responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity in Central Africa, and we know what needs to be done to change the horrible situation there. Most people who claim to be experts on the Congo go nowhere near -- and say nothing about -- the deeper realities, even when they have been told the facts.
Help us make this film and change the horrible situation in Central Africa and bring awareness about western media propaganda about Africa. Please support us today.
