Blood Minerals

Conflict Minerals won in Congo

Millions of people died in the last years because of minerals electronics companies use for electronic devices such as mobiles and PCs.
Our society is dependent on this technology, but we should maybe ask ourselves whether it is necessary to always have the newest computers or mobile phones considering that people are actually dying because of it.

 

Viviane Stroede interviewed Meabh from Congolese Women Ireland about the blood minerals which are won in Congo and used for our mobiles.
