• War in the Central African Republic (Full Length)

    Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News The Central African Republic's capital of Bangui has seen its Muslim population drop from 130,000 to under 1000 over the past few months. Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims. CAR has never fully recovered from France's colonial rule, and it has only known ten years of a civilian government - from 1993 to 2003 - since achieving independence in 1960. Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN a...

  • Central African Republic: On the Brink of Genocide

    Unabated violence between Christians and Muslims has plagued the Central African Republic since a coup by Seleka fighters to overthrow former president, Francois Bozize in March 2013. Thousands of Muslims have fled Bangui during the past several months to escape killing, looting and harassment by the anti-balaka Christian militia. The brutalities began to escalate when the country's first Muslim leader, Michel Djotodia, stepped down and went into exile last month. The French government has dispatched thousands of troops to the country, but they have appeared to be unable to prevent inter-communal clashes that erupted after Christian militias attacked the mostly Muslim Seleka group. Thousands are dead and nearly one million are displaced, in a country of only 4.5 million people. The United ...

  • Documentary: In Central African Republic, Suitcase or Coffin?

    For Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the situation in Central African Republic (CAR) was unique: seeing a country descend into violence before its very eyes, being surround by killings and witnessing an entire community being targeted without being able to provide protection. When the Seleka offensive began, MSF teams were already firmly established in the country. This documentary explores many of the questions raised by this situation: Did the teams know what was to come? What did they make of the increasing violence and the events taking place? What operational response was called for? Should MSF call for armed intervention? And what should the international community be doing? What assistance can MSF provide now?

Music and dance form an integral part of Aka rituals including ceremonies related to the inauguration of new encampments, hunting and funerals.

Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN and international community looking confused and impotent. In March 2013, the Séléka, a mostly Muslim rebel alliance, rose up and overthrew the corrupt government of François Bozizé, while bringing terror and chaos across the country - pillaging, killing and raping with impunity. In response, mostly Christian self-defense forces, called the anti-balaka, formed to defend CAR against Séléka attacks. Clashes grew more frequent throughout 2013 as the Séléka grew more ruthless. In December 2013, French and African troops went in to disarm the Séléka and staunch the bloodshed. The anti-balaka, seizing on a weakened Séléka, then went on the offensive. CAR had no real history of religious violence, and the current conflict is not based on any religious ideology. The fighting, however, turned increasingly sectarian in the fall of 2013, with revenge killings becoming the norm. And as the Séléka's power waned, the anti-balaka fed their need for revenge by brutalizing Muslim civilians. "Too few peacekeepers were deployed too late; the challenge of disarming the Séléka, containing the anti-balaka, and protecting the Muslim minority was underestimated," Human Rights Watch said in a recent statement. The bloodshed has not stopped. The UN is still debating whether or not to send peacekeepers. Even if a peacekeeping operation is approved, it will take six months for troops to be assembled.

The present-day capital of CAR, Bangui, rests beside the River Ubangi. Places of interest include the colourful Central Market, the Boganda Museum, the Arts and Crafts School, the cathedral and the Saint Paul Mission. 2. At Bouar, in the east of the country, see burial mounds thought to be thousands of years old, studded with tanjunu (upright megaliths). About 2,500 years ago local farmers set up megaliths weighing several tons each near Bouar. The cooperation necessary to make and position these monuments suggests that they were built by large social units. 3. Boali is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ombella-M’Poko. Situated on the Mbali River, Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric dam. The Falls of Boali are 250 m wide and 50 m high. 4. The population of the Central African Republic has almost quadrupled since independence. In 1960, the population was 1,232,000; as of 2014, it is approximately 4,709,000. The nation is divided into over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own language. The 2 official languages are French and Sango, CAR being one of the few African countries to have an African language as their official language. 5. From the 16th to 19th century, the people of this region were ravaged by slave traders. The French occupied the region in 1894. After World War II a rebellion forced the French to grant self-government and in 1960 it became independent. 6. The three most important parks are Manovo-Gounda St Floris, known for its high concentration of hippos; Bamingui-Bangoran in the north; and Dzanga-Sangha in the southwest. The game population of these national parks is impressive. It is also possible to view gorillas in Bayanga. 7. Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2014, the country had the second lowest level of human development, ranking 187th out of 188 countries.

UNESCO: Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity - 2008 URL: https://ich.unesco.org/en/RL/polyphonic-singing-of-the-aka-pygmies-of-central-africa-00082 Description: The Aka Pygmies living in the south-west region of the Central African Republic have developed a distinctive vocal musical tradition, which involves a complex type of contrapuntal polyphony based on four voices, mastered by all members of the Aka community. Music and dance form an integral part of Aka rituals including ceremonies related to the inauguration of new encampments, hunting and funerals. Unlike polyphonic systems that are written down in notation, the vocal tradition of the Aka Pygmies allows for spontaneous expression and improvisation. During performances, each singer can change his or her voice to produce a multitude of variations, creating the impression that the music is continuously evolving. The songs are generally accompanied by various percussion and string instruments, each one played for a specific occasion.Among the most common instruments are a local type of drum (enzeko), a harp-like instrument known as the geedale-bagongo, and the single-string bow (mbela). The songs perpetuate essential knowledge for the cohesion of the group and the preservation of community values. The dances are performed to the accompaniment of vibrant hand-clapping. Depending on the ritual, some dances feature men only, while others may be executed by couples or by male and female solo dancers. Relying entirely on oral transmission, the Aka Pygmies have succeeded in preserving their musical knowledge within the community by including children in rituals from an early age. The lifestyle of the Aka Pygmies has been drastically disrupted due to the changes currently taking place in the Central African Republic. The scarcity of game resulting from deforestation, the rural exodus and the folklorization of their heritage for the tourist industry are the principal factors contributing to the gradual disappearance of many of their traditional customs, rituals and skills.

Over the last few months, the UN Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign has been working with PSI (Population Services International) and our UN partners to get a life-saving bed net to every family in the Central African Republic. Thanks to the hard work and contributions of our supporters and Champion Mandy Moore, we are currently delivering those nets to help protect families from malaria for years to come. In this video, Danwe N'Dikwe of PSI describes his personal experience with malaria, and how working together is the best way to beat this deadly disease. Send a net. Save a life! Together we can cover a continent. Learn more at NothingButNets.net.

Here are a few short wildlife clips I have compiled over the last 5 years living in the Central African Republic, taken with my cheap point and shoot cameras. Most are shot in the Chinko River valley in the South-Eastern part of the country, where the conservation NGO, the Chinko Project is operating (the region I have worked since 2008). The elephant and lowland gorilla clips were shot in the Dzanga-Ndoki National Park in the South-Western part of the country. (My friend Ernie shot a couple of the clips). The cute baby Weigns Duiker was returned to its mother successfully and unharmed after the clip at the ending. The music is from, Milo Greene, and is called "Wooden Antlers". I do not own any rights to the music.

But human rights campaigners are striving to change the course of the country’s history. UN in Action, Episode #1488 Script (Pdf): http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/unia1488escript.pdf
