Rerum cognoscere causas

This is a “fossil blog”. It was born in October 2008 in Goma, DRC, and died peacefully on March 26th,  2010. For a year and a half,  “Stop the war in North Kivu” was a means to explain the reality of Goma and North Kivu at that time (I was working there as a project Director in four IDP Camps for the Jesuit Refugee Service). “Stop the war in North Kivu” also tried  to interpret -sometimes descipher- and explain the dynamics of violence and war in North and South Kivu.

Thanks for stopping by,

Nicolás

    Thanks a lot for the message! That is exactly what we need, because if we don´t do it the media won´t do it for us

    Great blog! With the mainstream media basically singing from the same songbook as powerful Western governments and multinational corporations, the internet seems to be one of the few tools available to bring this conflict to attention! I have spent a long time trying to find out why conflicts like that in the DRC cannot attract and maintain attention. I have written a book on the subject (called Stealth Conflicts) and have recently started a blog under the same title. I will link your blog. Let’s keep up the pressure!

    This is a great, and important blog. I’m so happy to see people writing from ‘the front line’ so to speak. I only wish more journalists would do the same.

    I’m starting a blog on the subject of the lack of media coverage on the DR Congo crisis to coincide with my masters thesis which will study it in comparison with the Gaza conflict, might be interesting for you to follow perhaps. And I’d be really delighted if you had any input, also.

    Keep up the great work!
