My Trip

I will soon be traveling to the Democratic Republic of the Congo for a work trip.  I will be researching the exploitation of the native people there. Below is the Dictionary.com definition of exploitation.

 

ex·ploi·ta·tion [ek-sploi-tey-shuh n] noun.
1.use or utilization, especially for profit
2.selfish utilization
3.the combined, often varied, use of public-relations and advertising techniques to promote a person, movie, product,etc.

 

If you were unaware there is a huge conflict going on withing the DRC.  The native people are being taken advantage of by very corrupt, evil people.  They are being terrorized into working in mines to give us valuable minerals.  I will be updating this blog with my personal findings and opinions as I stay in the DRC.
