    Great event with a thought provoking film and interesting discussion. It was all very nicely organized. I told all my friends to educate themselves about the situation in the Great Lakes region. I hope that events like this will lead to more effort to catch the warlords/war criminals.

    Hej everyone, I unfortunately can no longer attend. Was really looking forward to see it and the discussion because I am working on a documentary covering a related dynamic, ie the resource wars in Eastern Congo. I'm not usually one to make a plug however if you are interested in the material please check out the This is Congo link http://www.thisiscongo.com/ or look them up on Facebook.

    Cheers,
    Andrew
