On Tuesday January 22nd, Anjuli Brekke, who will be subbing for Cynthia Lin every Tuesday for the next few months, discussed a crisis with far reaching consequences, a crisis that despite its extraordinarily high casualty rate is often neglected in the media. An immense country full of resources, the Democratic Republic of Congo has been at the heart of a conflict encompassing many African countries. The Second Congo War propelled the country into a humanitarian crisis which has claimed millions of lives and the conflict persists today. The guest for the hour was Maurice Carney, Executive Director of the Friends of the Congo.
