Texas in Africa: minerals, minerals, minerals
"The level of frustration with the advocacy community's conflict minerals narrative is palpable among people who live and work in the eastern DRC. I can't tell you how many Congolese, aid workers, and academic experts have expressed frustration about the narrative created by the Enough Project to me in these last few weeks. They don't understand why the overarching focus on minerals has come to dominate international discourse on the region while the vexing problems that actually drive the violence there - land tenure rights, citizenship rights, and the state's inability to establish a monopoly on violence - continue to fester."
