I personally don't know who funds Pole Institute and I did not want to enter the raging debate about it among DRC media and fora, you can imagine why: the lack of rationality in the debate leaves me almost indifferent to the theme. I can say it positively: If all DRC media and fora are after Pole Institute, it means the latter may be actually doing something good, but I am not finding out. What I like about L.'s comment that I am posting below is that he thinks we still have a younger generation of people who are more concerned about what is better for their country. But as L. says so well, the international community will do whatever to hamper them, so we got to support them!

Pole institute in Goma is sponsored by German protestant church. It is a kind of mission for the right belief disguised in facts. We know what kind of foreposts missions have had and still have in Africa. They pave the path for the theft of mineral wealth in Africa. The loser are African people who live in complete poverty while in Europe and Germany a minority does not know where to throw away their money.
If one tells this fact, one is blamed as envy.
Germany as world champion of export has giant greed for raw material and does everything to get hold of this. So there is no mistery when Germany hosts such FDLR leader Dr. Ignace Murwanashyaka - now living in Bonn. Germany is léopoldizing Congo as Belgians do.
Laurent Nkunda did no other than Mr. Kamara in Guinea did. Germany gets 70% of it's aluminium ore from Guinea for such a low price with result that Guinea's population is one of the poorest in the world. Mr. Kamara put an end to this. Suddenly we hear an outcry from the international comunity: lack of democracy, human rights abuse, etc.
Of course it is wrong to punish thieves of wealth in the eyes of this so called comunity. We must admit that war criminals live in safe heaven and innocent people like Laurent Nkunda are blamed as war crminals without proof as repeatedly is spread in international press.
