Adam Hochschild on Eastern Congo

From my mate Dan Moshenberg:

Adam Hochschild (in “Mother Jones” magazine), who does know something about the Congo, takes us there, and indicts pretty much everyone. Especially foreign multinationals, Western consumers. Many of us. Remember, the civil war is a war of plunder, not ideologies. Particularly interesting is Hochschild’s analysis of blood diamond legislation, which is pretty grim.

Read it and see.
