Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From the news I have Darfur had a dramatic war. I have also received contradictory information regarding the fact that there were mass killings or genocide. I normally think the worst so I think it was targeted mass killings close to genocide.

But, we have also received information in Europe this last months that say there is no mass killing any more. There are actual negotiations right now..and they have been going on for quite some time.

The policy of EU is not vocal just in the most critical moment, now, in the middle of the peace conference.

Maybe the reports I read are wrong and the mass killing continue but this is not what the major broadcasters say (they could lie of course).

Regarding the other countries in Africa in adesperate situation...I have no idea what to do...As a first step it will be to leave them alone...but I have no power to force the mega corporations to stop bleeding Africa...

Other than that...I have my own ideas about Africa but I have not enough experience, background and knwoledge to give any advice....As always.. i would say: listen to Africa poor people and see what they say...and this history is really underreported.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
