    Years of war have left Congo's infrastructure in ruins. In a country with no airport, no viable rail system and where the roads are almost totally unusable, transporting goods has become a serious problem. A journey of a few hundred miles can take a month. We accompany the 'Prince of the Highways', Domingo, as he navigates his truck, laden with goods and passengers, through swamps and jungle. Despite the assistance of three escorts, the journey becomes a nightmare.

Movie by Intel about the war for minerals in Congo. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced that Intel achieved an important milestone and is now manufacturing and shipping 'conflict-free' microprocessors. Intel for ridding the world of conflict minerals. INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, Las Vegas, Jan. 6, 2014 -- Intel Corporation CEO Brian Krzanich today outlined a range of products, initiatives and strategic relationships aimed at accelerating innovation across a range of mobile and wearable devices as well as individual inventors' own connected creations. He made the announcements during the pre-show keynote for the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show to be held here this week. Krzanich's keynote painted a vision of how the landscape of computing is being re-shaped and where security is too important not to have it embedded in all devices. The world is entering an era of integrated computing defined not by the device, but by the integration of technology into people's lifestyles in ways that offer individuals new utility and value. As examples, he highlighted several immersive and intuitive technologies that Intel will begin offering this year. For example, the company is bringing human senses to Intel-based devices in a new family of hardware and software products called Intel® RealSense™ technology. Intel's CEO also discussed how Intel is addressing two critical issues casting shadows over the consumer electronics industry: data and device security and conflict minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). He said Intel had achieved a critical milestone and the minerals used in microprocessor silicon and packages manufactured in Intel's factories are "conflict-free" as concluded by third-party audits or direct validation by Intel's supply chain organization. "Two years ago, I told several colleagues that we needed a hard goal, a commitment to reasonably conclude that the metals used in our microprocessors are conflict-free," Krzanich said. "We felt an obligation to implement changes in our supply chain to ensure that our business and our products were not inadvertently funding human atrocities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Even though we have reached this milestone, it is just a start. We will continue our audits and resolve issues that are found."

French/Span/Nat Angolan troops were guarding the strategic Congolese port town of Matadi on Sunday after rebel forces trying to oust President Laurent Kabila deserted their positions. The Angolans took control of Matadi over the weekend after the rebels put up only light resistance before fleeing into the surrounding forest. The loss of Matadi, one of the last major rebel strongholds, is a blow to the insurgent force that just weeks ago seemed poised to take the capital, Kinshasa, about 350 kilometers to the northeast. This is the town of Matadi, just over 350 kilometers south-west of the Congolese capital Kinshasa. After a brief outburst of fighting on Sunday, it's now a government prize. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The armed forces have had to take control of the whole south western border area with Angola so that enemy elements don't return. Because there has been too much fighting between Matadi and Songololo. There has been a lot of resistance because the rebels have the support of U-N-I-T-A." SUPER CAPTION: Faustin Munene, Interior Minister D-R Congo Angolan troops are now guarding the strategic port which was one of the last major rebel strongholds. President Laurent Kabila's government in recent days has regained ground nearly as quickly as it was lost to the rebels - believed to be backed by neighboring Rwanda and Uganda. A fire at Matadi's port - the only major Congo River port serving inland southwestern Congo - raged in one warehouse, but the shipping facility was otherwise undamaged and city streets were deserted. Kabila's cabinet director, Abdoulaye Yerodia, earlier had described major destruction at the port saying it was a signal of what would come if rebel plans to take Kinshasa succeeded. Angolan troops teamed up with Kabila's beleaguered military more than a week ago and have helped turn the tide against the rebel force - a coalition army of ethnic Tutsi fighters and former soldiers in Kabila's army. Zimbabwe and Namibia are also fighting on behalf of Kabila. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) - (paraphrased) "The Angolan forces came to help the legitimate government of the Democratic Government of Congo. At the same time we are defending vital Angolan interests." SUPER CAPTION: General Joao de Matos, Chief of Staff Angolan Army Away from Matadi, the capital Kinshasa was quiet on Sunday after days of pitched combat on its western and eastern suburbs. The fighting in the capital left bodies scattered through the streets and triggered a vicious spree of lynching and summary executions. Officials say hundreds and perhaps thousands of rebel fighters have surrendered or been killed just in the past few days of fighting. Rebel leader Jean-Pierre Ondekane, however, remained defiant and insisted the fight to oust Kabila would continue.

http://www.scaruffi.com/politics/slavetra.html 1117: Slavery abolished in Iceland. 1214: The Statute of the Town of Korčula (today in Croatia) abolishes slavery. 1335: Sweden (including Finland at the time) makes slavery illegal. In 1807 Britain outlawed slavery. In 1820 the king of the African kingdom of Ashanti inquired why the Christians did not want to trade slaves with him anymore, since they worshipped the same god as the Muslims and the Muslims were continuing the trade like before. What these records show is that the modern slave trade flourished in the early middle ages, as early as 869, especially between Muslim traders and western African kingdoms. For moralists, the most important aspect of that trade should be that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the African kingdoms were paying with their own people. In most instances, no violence was necessary to obtain those slaves. Contrary to legends and novels and Hollywood movies, the white traders did not need to savagely kill entire tribes in order to exact their tribute in slaves. All they needed to do is bring goods that appealed to the kings of those tribes. The kings would gladly sell their own subjects. (Of course, this neither condones the white traders who bought the slaves nor deny that many white traders still committed atrocities to maximize their business). This explains why slavery became "black". Ancient slavery, e.g. under the Roman empire, would not discriminate: slaves were both white and black (so were Emperors and Popes). In the middle ages, all European countries outlawed slavery (of course, Western powers retained countless "civilized" ways to enslave their citizens, but that's another story), whereas the African kingdoms happily continued in their trade. Therefore, only colored people could be slaves, and that is how the stereotype for African-American slavery was born. It was not based on an ancestral hatred of blacks by whites, but simply on the fact that blacks were the only ones selling slaves, and they were selling people of their own race. (To be precise, Christians were also selling Muslim slaves captured in war, and Muslims were selling Christian slaves captured in war, but neither the Christians of Europe nor the Muslims of Africa and the Middle East were selling their own people). Then the Muslim trade of African slaves declined rapidly when Arab domination was reduced by the emerging European powers. (Note: Arabs continued to capture and sell slaves, but mostly in the Mediterranean. In fact, Robert Davis estimates that 1.25 million European Christians were enslaved by the "Barbary States" of northern Africa. As late as 1801 the USA bombed Morocco, Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli precisely to stop that Arab slave trade of Christians. The rate of mortality of those Christian slaves in the Islamic world was roughly the same as the mortality rate in the Atlantic slave trade of the same period.) Christians took over in black Africa, though. The first ones were the Portuguese, who, applying an idea that originally developed in Italian seatrading cities, and often using Italian venture capital, started exploiting sub-Saharan slaves in the 1440s to support the economy of the sugar plantations (mainly for their own African colonies of Sao Tome and Madeira). The Dutch were the first, apparently, to import black slaves into North America, but black slaves had already been employed all over the world, including South and Central America. We tend to focus on what happened in North America because the United States would eventually fight a war over slavery (and it's in the U.S. that large sectors of the population would start condemning slavery, contrary to the indifference that Muslims and most Europeans showed for it). Even after Europeans began transporting black slaves to America, most trade was just that: "trade". In most instances, the Europeans did not need to use any force to get those slaves. The slaves were "sold" more or less legally by their (black) owners. Scholars estimate that about 12,000,000 Africans were sold by Africans to Europeans (most of them before 1776, when the USA wasn't yet born) and 17,000,000 were sold to Arabs. The legends of European mercenaries capturing free people in the jungle are mostly just that: legends. A few mercenaries certainly stormed peaceful tribes and committed terrible crimes, but that was not the norm. There was no need to risk their lives, so most of them didn't: they simply purchased people. As an African-American scholar (Nathan Huggins) has written, the "identity" of black Africans is largely a white invention: sub-Saharan Africans never felt like they were one people, they felt (and still feel) that they belonged to different tribes. The distinctions of tribe were far stronger than the distinctions of race.
