Blood Diamonds

Front Page

By H. Kirkpatrick and A. Shepherd

Recently smugglers were arrested in Devon.
They were going to trade guns with blood diamonds.
We could prevent to pass buns to Africa.
But this smuggling case is just the tip of the iceberg.
Why African people want to get guns?
Some African countries are in the civil war, or even countries that the war was finished, their government is still unstable.
People want to get guns under such a circumstance.
Why they are in the civil war? Why their government is so unstable?

We colonized African countries in the old days and used their natural resources.
We scramble for the resources. That’s caused dispute in African countries.
Yes, we are partly to blame for the civil war and unstable government.
We have to hate dispute and continue to keep watch African circumstance with interest.
