§334 Is your ipod fueling mass rape in Congo?April 16, 2009
Me – There’s a deadly conflict in Congo DRC. Deadliest since WWII they say. One of the weapons used by the rebel forces is mass rape to innocent civilians.
You – Well, what can I do?
Me – Great! That’s the spirit! What can we do, what can we do…?
The electronic things you use all the time. Ipods, cell phones, computers – where do their minerals come from? Any idea? If not, make sure they’re not from Congo. The mines there are controlled by the very forces that do these mass rapes.
I know I will.
