• 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?

    Living with obstetric fistula causes extreme suffering. Incontinent and ostracised, these women have countless health issues. In January 2012, 50 women from villages across the northwest Central African Republic came to a MSF hospital in Boguila. 17-year old Awa was one of them. She developed a fistula two years ago during the birth of her first child. Awa (woman in local dialect) I came here because my bladder was torn, so the doctors could cure my injury. MSF sent a message to the chief of my village and he told me I could come here for treatment. Fistula can be avoided but it requires trained staff and care during delivery.

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.

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 Nations has estimated that about two million people are in dire need of humanitarian assistance. On this week's INfocus, we travel to CAR to see how international forces are using violence to re-colonize the country and how ethnic tensions are being stirred up.

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.

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.

In 2013, a Muslim rebel group named the Seleka led a coup in the Central African Republic (CAR), overthrowing the Christian President Francois Bozize and bringing the country into an ethno-religious civil war. Later that year, VICE News traveled to the CAR to cover the conflict which has left over 5,000 dead and nearly a million displaced. Due to the combination of the upcoming February presidential election, the looming exit of French peacekeeping forces, and the total handover to the MINUSCA United Nations troops, the situation in the CAR is extremely fragile. With the conflict entering its third year, questions remain about how to quell the violence, which the UN describes as "The Silent Crisis." VICE News returned to the CAR in 2014 to further document the ongoing conflict and to meet those living through the prevailing chaos. Producer's Note: This documentary was filmed in July and August 2014 in the Central African Republic (CAR). An earlier version of the documentary cited statistics regarding internally displaced people (IDPs) in CAR — namely that 100,000 IDPs are living in a camp near the M'Poko International Airport. According to a January 2015 report by The Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS) regarding IDPs in CAR, these figures have become outdated. They have been removed from this version of the documentary. Approximately 20,000 IDPs are currently living in the camp, according to the ACAPS report.

Living with obstetric fistula causes extreme suffering. Incontinent and ostracised, these women have countless health issues. In January 2012, 50 women from villages across the northwest Central African Republic came to a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital in Boguila. 17-year old Awa was one of them. She developed a fistula two years ago during the birth of her first child. Awa (woman in local dialect) I came here because my bladder was torn, so the doctors could cure my injury. Médecins Sans Frontières sent a message to the chief of my village and he told me I could come here for treatment. Fistula can be avoided but it requires trained staff and care during delivery. Over two million women suffer from fistula worldwide, most of them in Africa. An Médecins Sans Frontières surgeon goes from hospital to hospital offering surgical treatment to these women. After three weeks of convalescence, they can return to a normal life.

Due to extreme violence, 1 million people in the Central African Republic have been uprooted from their homes. Across the capital city of Bangui, more than 60 camps have sprung up. The IRC is there, providing basic assistance such as food and shelter, as well as helping to protect women and children.

Ivan Bulik, adventurer, travelled through all of Africa. However, one of his dreams stayed unrealized for a long time. He desired to capture the life and customs of the smallest people on Earth, untouched by modern day civilization; The Pygmies. His search begins in the Central African Republic, where the local natives take him illegally across the border of war-torn Congo. During his adventurous trip, he comes face to face with Mountain Gorillas and is threatened by Jungle Elephants. Finally, deep in the jungle, he comes across the people who for millennia have sustained themselves by traditional hunting and gathering and whose joy of life, dance and music seems to be endless. They may be the last real, "children" of the jungle, who are not only endangered by our civilization, but also by one of the largest war conflicts since the end of WW II.

In which John discusses the ongoing war in the Central African Republic and how complex news stories that don't meet our expectations can go ignored, even when they're very important. REMINDER: EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS ARE ALLOWED TO BE OVER FOUR MINUTES. A much more detailed and very interesting overview of the conflict beginning in 2012: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_African_Republic_conflict_(2012%E2%80%93present) The (slightly out of date but still very helpful from a historical/demographic background perspective) CIA Factbook on the CAR: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/ct.html Further background from the ICRC on the internal displacement in the CAR: http://www.icrc.org/eng/resources/documents/update/2013/11-25-central-african-republic-displaced-health-risk.htm Good story about the CAR from the Economist: http://www.economist.com/blogs/baobab/2014/04/central-african-republic
