Belgium’s museum reflects colonial oppression against DRC

A controversial museum, focusing on Belgium’s colonial past, is re-opening after being closed for a year.

The event is being overshadowed by demands from former colonies, like the Democratic Republic of Congo, that it return some artefacts.

Curators say the renovated museum outside Brussels, takes a critical view of colonial rule in what was then the Belgian Congo.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler reports.

  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

  4. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
