  • Children exploited for the gold trade | DW Documentary

    Child labor, environmental pollution, human rights abuses and bloody conflicts: this is the global gold trade. What are lawmakers doing to protect children? Gold as a raw material is more in demand than ever. But few people bother to think about conditions in the gold mining industry. We visit Ghana, the Philippines and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where conditions are often life-threatening. Conditions in small-scale mining operations are especially bad. Children as young as 7 are put to work underground and underwater, and are exposed to high doses of mercury. Bloody conflicts are fought in pursuit of minerals such as gold and coltan. Rebel groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example, use the illegal gold trade to finance their war. In June 2016, the EU agree...

Rebel groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example, use the illegal gold trade to finance their war. In June 2016, the EU agreed on a regulation to stop the financing of armed groups through trade in conflict minerals: It requires companies to provide complete supply-chain transparency. Gold, coltan, tin and tungsten may no longer be imported to Europe from places where child labor, environmental damage and human rights abuses occur. "We need to break the vicious cycle between the trade in minerals and the financing of conflict," say EU representatives. But in eastern DRC, that goal remains a distant one. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

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
