Congo, My Precious: The Curse of the Coltan Mines in Congo (RT Documentary)
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ “Geological scandal” is a phrase often used to describe one of the world’s most resource-rich countries – the Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite having extensive deposits of gold, diamonds, tungsten, and uranium, amongst many others, the abundance of internationally valued minerals has failed to bring any kind of prosperity to the country’s people. Colonial exploitation and a bloody civil war have left the Congolese with nothing from their country’s natural riches but misery and poverty.

Human cost of mining in DR Congo Minerals that produce cell phones etc
 
00:33
Rebels in DRC Congo overtly go on charm offense with local people in Eastern Congo where coltan -- base mineral for cell phones and video games are extracted. In an Executive Order President Obama commissioned Special Op forces to rein in the rebels. In light of the President's Executive Order and the presence of U.S. Special Ops in Congo it can be deduced that such overt actions by the rebels is condoned.

The Mineral Which Powers Your Mobile Phone Also Fuels Endless Violence in the Congo (2009)

Congo Connection (2009): The mineral Coltan has fuelled a technological revolution in the West, but in the DRC it has become a talisman of brutal violence.

Is our appetite for the latest gadgets fuelling rebel fighting in the Congo - threatening the survival of central Africa’s great gorillas? On the inside of many devices like mobile phones and laptops is the mineral ‘Coltan’, which has made our gadgets smaller and more complex. In the mineral-rich Congo, armed militia watch over the children digging this mineral from the ground. “"The government only pretends to help us"” says one miner, who pays a government official just to work. “"The Congo is a shifting sands of various militia, the largest of which is the Congolese state itself”," explains an expert on blood minerals. Yet the miners depend on the little they get from mining to survive. Electronic giants like Apple now claim they will no longer use Coltan from this area but experts are convinced the militias will “smuggle it onto the market” regardless. For local miners, the move away from African minerals is “just another way of penalising Africans”. Coltan fuels a conflict, which has seen national parks become war zones, gorillas killed for meat and hundreds of houses set on fire in turf wars over mineral territory. Yet it also feeds 400,000 petty traders. Why did it take a mobile phone to make us appreciate the injustice in the Congo?

Laurent Nkunda: Warlord or Liberator?
 
10:16
The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo has issued an international arrest warrant against General Laurent Nkunda for war crimes, and human rights monitors like Refugees International say that his troops have killed and raped civilians and pillaged their villages. He denies the charges. "I'm not a warlord ... I'm a liberator of the people," he said. "The central reason for the nearly six million dead in the Congo since 1996 is not ethnic strife but rather the scramble for Congo's enormous treasure trove of diamonds, gold, copper, cobalt, coltan, tin, timber and more," says Maurice Carney of Friends of the Congo. Carney is not alone. Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Wangari Maathai has assessed these misconceptions and said "these wars when you look at them, they are all about resources and who is going to control them." DRC harbors the richest, purest minerals in the world, many of them vital to the U.S. defense industry. There is not one person who is reading this who does not benefit by mineral extraction and exploitation in DRC. For example, Congo has from 64%-80% of the world's reserve of coltan. Oil may arguably be the non-renewable resource which is front and center in every American's mind, but coltan is found in cell phones, laptops, digital cameras, and video game consoles. Coltan is the engine behind our communications systems, and 1500 people a day are dying in this region while Americans profit from corporate greed, take Congolese resources, turn our backs, and power-up our cellphones. Make no mistake about it, there is a violent resource war happening in Congo and a great wall of silence has been erected around it. While foreign corporations and American consumers benefit, 1.5 million people are in IDP (internally displaced persons) camps in Kivu Province alone. The World Bank has estimated that a whopping 75% of Congo's copper and cobalt reserves were basically given away to multi-national corporations. Novelist John le Carré (The Mission Song) op-ed in the Boston Globe "Getting the Congo's Wealth to Its People" explains, "As the deals presently stand, the main profit Congo state will make is from taxing the operations and exports of the mining companies. For a minimal return, it has signed away millions -- if not billions -- of dollars' worth of copper and cobalt for 35 years."

BLOOD IN THE MOBILE PHONE! - 1
 
08:32
What is Coltan? Coltan is short for Columbite-tantalite - a black tar-like mineral found in major quantities in the Congo. The Congo possesses 64 percent of the world's coltan. When coltan is refined it becomes a heat resistant powder that can hold a high electric charge. The properties of refined coltan is a vital element in creating devices that store energy or capacitors, which are used in a vast array of small electronic devices, especially in mobile phones, laptop computers, pagers, and other electronic devices. I, Wemba-koy Okonda citizen of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the President of OKONDA NON GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION plead to you on the behalf of my people. There are ONLY 6,000,000 Congolese dead so far from the war that you are supporting if you are a user of cell phone, computer, play station etc... I said "ONLY" because you were silent until now and remain silent as you are reading this. You are not standing up for my people. Foreign Corporate exploitation Although the countries mentioned above directly exploit coltan, foreign multi-national corporations have been deeply involved in the exploitation of coltan in the Congo. The coltan mined by rebels and foreign forces is sold to foreign corporations. Although, the United Nations in its reports on the Congo do not directly blame the multi-national corporations for the conflict in the Congo, the United Nations does say that these companies serve as "the engine of the conflict in the DRC." So how many more do you want to be killed? Need I bring up that Hitler had 6,000,000 Jewish people killed? I was there when you stood up for the killing in Iraq, the killing in Mumbai, the killing in New York (9/11), the killing in France, the killing in Spain etc... but why can't you stand up for my people? I am crying right now with pain. What can I do? I am just a simple black man and a fellow Congolese without power. Because I am so weak, to consolate myself I am just crying for my people. Everyday there is bad news from my home country. What have my people done to you that you cannot forgive????? That cellphone you are using has the blood of my people. It is a weapon against my people. Please, I am not asking you to throw away your technology, but I am asking you to stand up for my people. The 6,000,000 "ONLY" Congolese dead are enough. I can not afford one more death. The population of the State of Washington (U.S.A.) is 6,395,798. Imagine 6,000,000 Congolese dead. If you took 6,395,798 - 6,000,000(deaths) you would be left with 395,798 people. We all are the people of the world, but why are you excluding my people as citizens of the world? By the way, if your cellphone rings think about those that are dead because of "COLTAN", the source of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo. What are some of the uses of coltan in modern society? • Laptop computers • Cellular phones • Jet engines • Rockets • Cutting tools • Camera lenses • X-ray film • Ink jet printers • Hearing aids • Pacemakers • Airbag protection systems • Ignition and motor control modules, GPS, ABS systems in automobiles • Game consoles such as playstation, xbox and nintendo • Video cameras • Digital still cameras • Sputtering targets • Chemical process equipment • Cathodic protection systems for steel structures such as bridges, water tanks • Prosthetic devices for humans -- hips, plates in the skull, also mesh to repair bone removed after damage by cancer • Suture clips • Corrosion resistant fasteners, screws, nuts, bolts • High temperature furnace parts. • High temperature alloys for air and land based turbines

Congo War: The most craved after minerals on earth
 
13:31
The Democratic Republic of Congo is the richest country on earth, but the most exploited. It sits upon $24 trillion dollars worth of minerals that is more than the $18 trillion worth of oil in Saudi Arabia. Because of its vast wealth every major corporation is in there exploiting its minerals that make space technology work, uranium for atomic bombs and coltan for our laptops, mobile/cell phones, Video game consoles, as well as the copper, gold and diamond industry to function that depends upon the vast wealth of the Congo. If the minerals in the Congo were to cease from being exploited and exported, the entire modern world would come to a stand still.

Congo: how to stop the killing | The Economist
 
04:25
More people were killed in a recent civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo than in conflicts in Vietnam, Syria, Iraq and Korea combined. The African country may be sliding back in to war, but one man is hoping a message of peace can overcome violence. WARNING: this film contains distressing images. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy It's one of the deadliest countries on the planet - wracked for decades by civil war, rape, murder, and genocide. Now the Democratic Republic of Congo is in the midst of another crisis and potentially another civil war. But one group of young people is taking a stand - not with weapons but with a message of peace. Fred Bauma risks his life every day campaigning for peace in the DRC, a country that has grown used to killing. Between 1998 and 2003 a brutal civil war, and the starvation and disease that came with it, tore the country apart, killing between one and five million people. That makes it one of the single most deadliest conflicts since 1945. Sitting on vast mineral wealth and situated at the heart of the continent, the DRC could be the crossroads of Africa - if it were peaceful and functional. But the country remains extremely undeveloped. Only one person in seven earns more than $1.25 a day. Life expectancy is just 63 years. The President Joseph Kabila is standing down after almost 20 years and a battle for who succeeds him is underway. The election due to be held in December will undoubtedly be an unfair fight. At worst, it can plunge the country back to Civil War. The favourite to replace Mr. Kabila could be as bad for the country as the current dictator. Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary is from the same party as Mr Kabila and is seen as a potential puppet for the president. The two best known opposition figures are Moïse Katumbi, a charismatic former governor, and Jean-Pierre Bemba, a former vice president and rebel leader who this year was acquitted of war crimes. But both candidates have been excluded from the race. Mr. Bauma is a member of Lucha, a youth group that does not engage in politics but protests against the government's failure to provide services. In the face of mounting violence, Lucha's peaceful protests provide an alternative to the bloodshed that has plagued the country for decades. Fred's fears are justified. One of his colleagues Luc Nkulula was burnt alive in a house fire that was allegedly started by government forces. If Congo could find stability then the whole of Africa would benefit however it is unlikely that a presidential election will bring about real change. It is a risky moment for this fragile country. In almost 60 years since independence Congo has never had a president peacefully step down. There's a real chance that the country could fall back into civil war.

Coltan: Conflict minerals in Congo
 
04:32
Fungamwaka - a mine in the east of Congo. These men work so that we can make telephone calls. They are mining coltan, which is indispensable for the production of mobile phones. The Democratic Republic of Congo is the world’s second-largest supplier of this rare mineral. Fungamwaka is a model mine. There is no child labour, state controls are carried out, taxes are paid. Those in charge of the mine operate legally. And above all there are no militia groups who finance themselves by smuggling resources. The long civil war is the biggest problem in east Congo - funded by the resource wealth in the ground. Ninety percent of the mines are managed by small-scale miners in remote border areas - an El Dorado for rebel groups who demand a share of the yield and sell it the global market via neighbouring countries like Rwanda. The ore is separated from the sand with a shovel, just like in the old gold-digging days. The price of tin has dropped to 5 euros a kilo in the provincial capital; at least coltan still fetches 20 euros. That is why organisations like Misereor have been demanding for a long time that organisations should be legally obliged to ensure that human rights standards are maintained throughout their supply chain from raw materials to finished product- and to cover the costs of this. In Fungamwaka it’s only the miners who pay for the controls- they earn less. www.misereor.org twitter: http://www.twitter.com/misereor

Smartphones: The world in your pocket - The Congolese Blood in your hand
 
09:27
Google, Apple, Intel and other tech companies revealed that minerals sold to fund combattants in the Democratic Republic of Congo and nearby countries may be used in the manufacture of their gadgets. Everyday its an emergency in east of Congo due to crisis war and sexual violence. The disclosures come thanks to the reform-focused Dodd-Frank Act, which now requires thousands of companies to release an annual report detailing the use of so-called conflict minerals. Tungsten, tin, tantalum and gold-products common in electronics and known collectively as "3TG" are mined heavily in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other central African countries. Proceeds from some of the mines are used to fun an ongoing war that's become the deadliest armed conflict since World War 2, according to one study. However, because such materials travel through a variety of smelters, manufacturersand distributors before they end up in a phone or laptop, vetting the entire manufacturing line is a difficult, expensive process. The SEC has estimated that compliance with the new rule cost companies $3 to $4 billion in the first year and will cost $206 to $609 million in subsequent years. In regulatory filings, the tech giants continuously said they did not have sufficient data to fully determine whether conflict minerals were present in their products. Google wrote in its filing that "based on our due diligence, we have reason to believe that portion of the 3TG used in our products originated from the covered countries, but we have not identified any instances of sourcing that directly or indirectly supported conflict in the covered countries". The company disclosed that about 36 percent of its smelters in the Democratic republic of the Congo region have been certified as not trafficking in conflict minerals, but it could notmake a firm determination about other suppliers. Apple, which began tracking the practices of individual smelters in 2010, said that 80 percent of the smelters it does business with in the region do not use conflict minerals. But like Google, Apple said it did not know enough to definitively say whether the other suppliers use them. Intel, meanwhile, said that its microprocessors and chipsets are conflict-free, but it could not determine the conflict status of its other products. And Amazon said "majority" of the suppliers that contribute to its kindle pipeline are not using conflict minerals. Every company which made a disclosure said they would pressure their questionable suppliers to be certified as compliant with conflict-free standards. overall, the reports indicate that tech companies are at least advocating for the manufacture of conflict-free products, but they are finding it difficult to implement such initiatives on a practical level. No ones is keen on abandoning the region entirely-despite raised awareness of conflict minerals, the Democratic Republic of the Congo's share of tantalum production actually increased in 2013, according to the Wall street Journal. Some companies even argue that continuing to draw minerals from the region could allow them to be a force for good. "Rather than simply funneling its demand through a limited number of verified smelters or those that are not sourcing in the Democratic Republic of the Congo," Apple wrote, "Apple believes the best way to impact human rights abuses on the ground in the Democratic Republic of Congo is to have critical mass of smelters verified as conflict-free, so that demand from other questionable sources is reduced."

On The News Line - Congo in crisis
 
10:08
These are the headlines we are tracking for you in this episode of On the News Line: Congo in crisis The Democratic Republic of Congo is in crisis. Violence is raging on in the Kasai region in the country's southwest. The violence erupted last August after government forces killed a tribal leader who had defied the government of President Joseph Kabila. The Kamwina Nsapu militia then took up arms and began a bloody struggle against the government. The militia fighters are mainly made up of Luba people, an ethnic group living in the Kasai region. They started a rebellion against the central government and called for the expulsion of government forces from the region. The violence has sparked fears of a wider ethnic conflict in the region, which is rife with ethnic rivalry over rich mineral resources. Sino-Indian tensions Tensions between china and India are once again in the spotlight with the two sides digging their heels in over the Doklam region territorial dispute. To further compound the situation, China has held live fire drills near the disputed border region in the Himalayas. The exercises come after Beijing stepped up its warnings to Indian troops to get out of Doklam. Indian troops entered the region in June after New Delhi's ally, Bhutan, complained that a Chinese military construction group was building a road inside Bhutan's territory. Beijing says the border dispute has nothing to do with India. But New Delhi believes any construction would have serious security implications for India. New Delhi and Beijing are members of BRICS group of nations which also include Russia, Brazil and South Africa. But there has been no effort by the developing economies to resolve the dispute between china and India.

Congo the Movie: The Lost City of Zinj - Sega Saturn - Intro & Stages 1-3 Gameplay [2K 60fps]
 
21:56
Not every game Sega released was gold and Congo was one such example, that's us being kind, as this is a real disaster of a first person shooter. Based on the Paramount Pictures film / B movie of the same name, Congo was a rather average film about killer gorillas that in turn was also loosely based on the Michael Crichton's novel. The game itself follows it's own plot you play as Butembo Kabalo a member of one of the research teams sent into the jungle to find diamonds. On the face of it an FPS which had you exploring ancient temples and jungle forests should have been quite good. Alas the Sega Away Team and Jumpin' Jack Software the developers behind this title clearly struggled with the game. As it is mired with problems, ranging from awful level design, poor frame rate, enemies able to attack from out of no where then able to hide again so you can't damage them and having the turn circle of a slug super glued to the floor. It's just awful in every way and you can see why this game remained in North America only. The best part of the game is the live action cutscene acted by Steven Anthony Jones who give quite a good performance as the hero stranded in the jungle.

🇨🇩 Congo and the General | People & Power
 
25:01
The Democratic Republic of Congo has been engulfed in conflict of one sort or another since 1996. The fighting, between the government and a complex, ever-shifting array of rebel militias, has resulted in the deaths of an estimated six million people and the injury, rape and forced displacement of a great many more. The international community has tried many times to help the country resolve some of these problems - or at least to mitigate their consequences - with the United Nations maintaining a peacekeeping presence since 1999. Known as MONUSCO (United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the DR Congo), it is currently the largest and most expensive such mission in the world, comprising 21,000 uniformed personnel from 50 different nations with a budget of just under $1.5bn. But for all its size and resources, the force has frequently been criticised in the past for being ineffectual, overcautious and for failing to meet its responsibility to protect the country's vulnerable citizens from harm. In practice this has meant that while civilians have frequently sought and found sanctuary at UN bases, its troops have rarely been allowed to venture out of those compounds to engage with the armed groups and militias. Indeed, on more than one occasion, the most brutal acts have been carried out even as the peacekeepers looked on. For example, as recently as last July, a militia known as Mai Mai Cheka took over a town called Pinga, decapitated civilians and threw the severed heads at the local UN base, shouting: "Take these, you’re the ones who like meat." But at long last things are changing. The UN force now has sharper teeth and new rules of engagement. In March last year, the UN Security Council sanctioned the creation of a new Force Intervention Brigade (FIB), made up of 3,000 well-equipped combat troops from South Africa, Tanzania and Malawi and gave it a mandate to "neutralise and disarm" the various armed groups. It was a crucial decision because it meant that for the first time in the organisation's history, soldiers wearing the UN blue helmet were being allowed to go on the offensive, rather than having to sit helplessly by as atrocities took place. In other words, the peacekeepers could become peacemakers. As it took shape last summer, this beefed-up force was placed under a new commander, Lieutenant-General Carlos Santos Cruz, an energetic 62-year-old Brazilian. He was tasked with cutting through the inertia that has brought the UN so much criticism in the past. Half-way through his one year appointment it is already clear the general has wrought some dramatic changes. The first tangible signs of the new approach came towards the end of last year when the Congolese Army, the FARDC, closely supported by the new UN force, successfully defeated the rebel M23 group, which had humiliated the FARDC a year earlier when they marched largely unopposed into Goma, the regional capital of North Kivu province. On that occasion the UN did not intervene, even when troops from both sides went on a rampage of looting and raping women and children in the area. But in October and November 2013, under General Santos Cruz's watchful eye and provided with better training, intelligence, back-up and logistics support, the FARDC was both more effective and (for that moment at least) more disciplined. Crucially, the fact that they were also fighting alongside a potent UN force that was prepared to go on the offensive made a significant difference. As the general explained later, this new proactive stance is now the UN's guiding principle in the DR Congo. "We are going to protect the civilians, eliminate and neutralise the threats," he said. "We are not going to wait for the threat to come here against the civilians." To find out what this means in practice, People & Power went behind the scenes with the general and his FIB force as they consolidated their gains, gathered intelligence on rebel activity, and prepared to launch a new joint UN/FARDC offensive.

We Need Conflict Free Video-Game Consoles - Bandi Mbubi Interview
 
07:22
Apple Shame Unethical Mineral Supplies, Will Nintendo Do the Same? Progress isn't always a good thing. New consoles, gadgets and services can hold a hidden price beyond what we pay at retail. The minerals that are used to create much of our technology are often obtained from conflict ridden parts of the world, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, where profits potentially fund guns, crime and war. Apple has started to publicise which of its suppliers may be sourcing minerals from conflict zones. Their list details 104 suppliers that were unverified for compliance with ethical guidelines, helping to put pressure on them to comply. It also highlights 59 smelters that were compliant. Technology and Gaming Console firms are being pressured by human rights groups to influence suppliers to improve their ethics. "The ethical sourcing of minerals is an important part of our mission to ensure safe and fair working conditions," Apple wrote in its annual Supplier Responsibility Report. "In January 2014 we confirmed that all active, identified tantalum smelters in our supply chain were verified as conflict-free by third party auditors, and we're pushing our suppliers of tin, tungsten, and gold just as hard to use verified sources." Bandi Mbubi, director of http://www.congocalling.org/ Congo Calling, a UK-based campaign group calling for greater transparency in the sourcing of minerals told the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-26144981) that Apple's announcement was to be applauded. "What we want is the whole industry to start transforming the way they do their business," he said. "The way Apple has gone, even though it is not 100%, is something that is quite encouraging." Talking to us recently on the topic of conflict minerals in games consoles Mbubi suggested some positive action Nintendo gamers can take. "If you have a Nintendo console you can write to them to say I want you to only buy conflict free minerals. Then [Nintendo] will know that their consumers only want them to use conflict free materials. The more people that write to their technology company the better." The interview was shortly after Mbubi's emotionally charged http://tedxexeter.com/2012/09/20/bandi-mbubi-on-ted-com/ TEDxExeter talk that called for the audience to reassess how they chose technology. Unusually though, this was not a plea for abstinence from the tainted tech but to use it as a part of the solution, to get the message out about conflict minerals. Intel also recently announced that it wouldn't use conflict minerals in its microprocessors. It seems likely that companies like Nintendo (and Microsoft and Sony) will also have something to say on the matter as a law passed in 2010 gave companies until May 2014 to start reporting the source of its raw materials. Mr Mbubi told the BBC that he hoped the moves from Apple and Intel would spark a race for other technology companies to show they too were taking action.

Congo calling back: Bandi Mbubi at TEDxExeter
 
06:06
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Bandi Mbubi's talk at TEDxExeter 2012 was featured on TED.com. He has returned with an update about his work with the Congo Calling campaign, and how our actions are beginning to make a difference. Congo Calling was launched at TEDxExeter 2012 following Bandi Mbubi's powerful call for the development of fair trade technology which uses ethically-sourced, conflict-free minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). We are delighted to welcome Bandi back to TEDxExeter to share the many successes of Congo Calling and his vision for the campaign. "My wish is to convince everyone to do one simple thing: to insist on fairly traded mobile phones, tablets, and games consoles, and in so doing, transform an industry and the world. The illegal trade in minerals for these devices has fuelled two decades of violent war in my home country, the DRC, and in so many others, but one small action by many could help end the violence." — Bandi Mbubi, July 2013. http://www.ted.com/talks/bandi_mbubi_demand_a_fair_trade_cell_phone https://twitter.com/BandiMbubi https://twitter.com/CongoCalling At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.

Afghanistan's Secret Billion Dollar Emerald Mines
 
27:50
Hidden Gems: After suffering the Soviets, the Taliban, and the War on Terror, Afghanistan has had its share of turmoil; but can 1,000 billion dollars worth of emeralds lift Afghanistan out of poverty? Subscribe to Journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For similar stories see: Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines https://youtu.be/c7iv1fef6qo Zimbabwe's Blood Diamond Killing Fields https://youtu.be/k9Bk5VIhjiY The Children Risking Their Lives In Underwater Gold Mines https://youtu.be/P1L_pxYZVwE "We have a lot of requests from Europe because the Emeralds from Afghanistan are the best in the world", Raphael says. He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Anonymous #OpColtan Phase II
 
02:33
http://pastebin.com/aP7JHQuw OpColtan Phase II 1876 Leopold II of Belgium found a fake scientific association. The real aim of the association was to organize the exploitation of Congo's rubber and ivory. In a few years lots of people in Congo where forced in slavery. The member of the association of Leopold II directed the exploitation in Congo and usually tortured the people in Congo. 1998: A civil war grow up in Congo. The UN in 2001 proved that the war was a conflict for Congo's minerals. Firms like Sony, Nokia, Siemens, Toshiba, Apple, Intel etc... where involved in the war. They payed warlords in order to collect great loads of coltan illegally. At least 200.000 people died in the mineral war in Congo. NOW: Mr. Ntaganda, a warlord formerly involved in the war of 1991, is fighting a new war in Congo. This obviously shows that RDC (democratic republic of Congo) is now a war area. The previously mentioned firms declare that they don't buy minerals from war areas. Great mineral dealers make great business with Congo, as the email of Mr.Thierry Manda Kalumba (+260955363702 , +243997012175, [email protected] ) proves. The email was sent in 2012 and we found it in Traxys database. Citizens of the world: your mobile phones, DVD players, video game systems and computers are made with the blood of Congo's people and animals. Remember that it is our greed for technology and products from these companies that destroy our planet. We can change this trend by not supporting these companies and recycling our own technology.

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
 
04:38
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Congo's Forgotten War
 
07:21
April 2008 Every month, another 45,000 people are killed in the DRC, in a war that was supposed to have ended five years ago. Congo remains one of the world's most dangerous and isolated places. "We live like apes. Our future is to die", states one 18 year old. Despite the agreed ceasefire, war is still raging here. At the Cheverie refugee camp, 5,500 families share one tap. There is no toilet. "Our life here is pitiful", laments one woman. Bands of militias roam the countryside, killing civilians and burning down villages. Gang rape has become the most common weapon of war. Sifi, 18, was kidnapped by rebel soldiers. Months of repeated rapes left her paralysed and incontinent. She became pregnant but her baby was stillborn. And it's not just young women who are at risk. Even toddlers and septugenarians have been raped. Many of those who survive contract HIV or are ostracized by the community. "When my husband realised I'd been raped, he abandoned me", states Odette. "He abandoned our two children as well". The rebels prevent food supplies reaching refugees, leading to acute malnutrition. Every month, more than 20,000 children die from hunger or easily preventable diseases. The war in Eastern Congo has gone on for so long, few can remember anything else. Every attempt to bring peace has failed. Susan Schulman
