1. The Congo is a central storehouse of strategic minerals for the functioning of modern society, particularly as it relates to the mining and technology sectors. We must demand that foreign countries and corporations implement humane policies toward the Congo.

2. The Congo sits in the heart of Africa and is bordered by NINE other countries, therefore as the Congo goes so does the rest of Africa. We must work with the Congolese and other Africans to make sure that the Congolese and NOT external forces determine the future and direction of their country.

3. The Congo has a history of being pillaged and the people being used as fodder in a rush for natural resources. The Belgian King, Leopold ll, ruled over a death chamber from 1885 - 1908, when conservative estimates put the number of Congolese dying as a result of Leopold's personal rule at 10 million. During Leopold's era the resources at the root of the suffering of the Congolese was ivory and rubber, today its coltan, diamonds, gold and copper to name a few.
