UN Security Council and Other Reports/Resolutions/Videos on the Congo

February 26, 2010

Updated April 1, 2010; April 16, 2010

note: there are quite a large number of UN Security Council resolutions on the Congo. They take some time to read, but by so doing, one gets quite a bit of useful information.

The entire list of UN Security Council Resolutions/Reports since 2003 (and some a bit earlier) can be found at the site entitled `Democratic Republic of the Congo – UN Documents’

I include here – for the moment – two particular reports – plus a U-Tube short skit on Africa and the IMF which sums up pretty much everything

  1. The first is entitled `Report from the Panel of Experts on the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources and Other Forms of Wealth of the Democratic Republic of the Congo’ . UN Security Council – Congo S-2003-1027. It is 41 pages long
  2. The second one comes a bit earlier, in 2002. It is 59 pages. Its annex includes the names of companies and countries that have profited off of the illicit trade in mineral and other natural resources from the Congo. When it came out, it created quite a storm and helped clarify much about what the war in the Congo has been about. s-2002-1146 – UN Security Council on Congo
  3. U-Tube on Africa and the IMF
  4. Le Roi de Zaire PartOne: No 1 –  In French. This video in several parts traces Mobutu’s consolidation of power around himself after his visits to China and North Korea where he saw first hand the power of `the cult’ of the personality. He then created a personality cult around himself with African trimmings
  5. Le Roi de Zaire Part One; Suite – In French.

    Yes, that U-Tube piece does sum it all up very succinctly.
