There is a war occurring in the Congo that most of us know nothing about. The war in Congo is considered to be a resource war. The Congo is home to abundant rich minerals that are used for much of our electronics today such as cell phones, computers, etc. For this reason, neighboring countries have been invading the Congo since 1994 killing more than 5.4 million people according to warchild.org. The main two groups fighting in this war today are the Congolese army and the Democratic Republic of Rwanda. The soldiers fighting in this war are preferred to be young boys rather than adults because they are easier to brainwash. Most boys never even get to go to school nor do the majority of them live past their fifth birthday. Young boys hold guns bigger than them and stand in the front lines of war, while boys that are too small too hold guns have only a whistle to blow in hopes that they will scare off the enemy. They don’t have an option of whether they get to live or die, they are forced to face death. The inhumanities occurring in the Congo are atrocious and far too complicated for any human to comprehend let alone endure. The reason I chose this topic is because my sorority, Phi Mu, orders shirts and buys whistles in order to spread the word and let people know of what’s going on since it is the only way to stop it. I feel like this is the complete definition of injustice because this is considered to be the deadliest war and we are doing nothing to stop it. Be a whistleblower for peace!
