• 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...

    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.

    The Republic of the Congo (French: République du Congo), also known as the Congo Republic,Congo-Brazzaville or simply Congo, is a country located in Central Africa. It is bordered by five countries: Gabon and the Atlantic Ocean to the west; Cameroon to the northwest; the Central African Republic to the northeast; the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the east and south; and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda to the southwest.

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

Banks often consider low income customer too risky and too expensive to serve. This leaves poor people with no choice but to resort to informal, unregulated and often unreliable means of savings, credit and insurance. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, microfinance bank FINCA is breaking new ground in the supply of formal financial services to the poor by employing an innovative agent banking business model and biometric technology. The project is supported by IFC and The MasterCard Foundation through the Partnership for Financial Inclusion, an initiative that aims to scale microfinance and advance mobile financial services in Sub-Saharan Africa.

What is a trade deficit? Well, it all has to do with imports and exports and, well, trade. This week Jacob and Adriene walk you through the basics of imports, exports, and exchange. So, you remember the specialization and trade thing, right? So, that leads to imports and exports. Economically, in the aggregate, this is usually a good thing. Globalization and free trade do tend to increase overall wealth. But not everybody wins. Crash Course is on Patreon!

General Laurent Nkunda, rebel leader of the National Congress for People's Defence (CNDP), has said he wants to re-examine a $5bn dollar deal the Congolese government has struck with China. The deal gives China access to Congo's vast mineral riches in exchange for infrastructure development, including hospitals and football arenas. However, critics say China is behaving just like the imperial powers of the past. Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports.

The Republic of the Congo (French: République du Congo), also known as the Congo Republic,Congo-Brazzaville or simply Congo, is a country located in Central Africa. It is bordered by five countries: Gabon and the Atlantic Ocean to the west; Cameroon to the northwest; the Central African Republic to the northeast; the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the east and south; and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda to the southwest. The region was dominated by Bantu-speaking tribes, who built trade links leading into the Congo River basin. Congo-Brazzaville was formerly part of the French colony of Equatorial Africa.Upon independence in 1960, the former colony of French Congo became the Republic of the Congo. The People's Republic of the Congo was a Marxist–Leninist one-party state from 1970 to 1991. Multi-party elections have been held since 1992, although a democratically elected government was ousted in the 1997 Republic of the Congo Civil War and President Denis Sassou Nguesso has ruled for 26 of the past 36 years. The political stability and development of hydrocarbon production made Republic of the Congo the fourth largest oil producer in the Gulf of Guinea and provided the country with a relative prosperity despite the poor state of its infrastructure and public services and an unequal distribution of oil revenues Song: Lache-Moi Le Morale by Piérette Adams Sources: Republic of Congo country profile http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-14121191 Congo, Republic of http://www.infoplease.com/country/republic-of-congo.html Republic of the Congo on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_the_Congo

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 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.

Conflict cellphones are casuing a war in the Congo that every one of us is responsible for. A nearly two decade long war in the eastern Congo has been the deadliest in the world since World War II. That means worse than Korea, Vietnam, all the conflicts the Middle East. Why don't we ever hear anything about it? Why the cover up? According to a study released by the International Rescue Committee, an estimated 5.4 million people have been killed in the the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 1996. That's a death toll equivalent to the entire population of Colorado. 45,000 deaths occur every month!! And all this is taking place in an International news media blackout. In addition hundreds of thousands of women have been raped over the past decade. Who is responsible for this unspeakable horror? Could it be (pause – point at camera)... you? The protracted wars in the Congo have led to massively wide and diverse violence against civilians by an variety of armed groups. Sexual violence has become a tool of war and control on an immense scale for all the armed groups in the Congo. Both sides. But wait how can you be to blame for this, you are asking? I'll tell you why. Do you own a mobile phone, a laptop computer? A Nintendo or PlayStation? Perhaps you should ask, “How many people died today in order to manufacture my cell phone?” Our cell phones and almost all other electronic equipment contain an essential element called tantalum. Tantalum is comprised of two minerals: columbite and tantalite. The combination of these two elements is known as coltan. And 80 percent of the world’s coltan is mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Extraction and mining of this element has fueled vicious civil wars in the Congo since 1996. Everyone involved in the mining and sale of coltan are part of this civil war. Any household electronic, phone, remote, or a laptop can contain minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Armed rebel groups connected with crimes of rape and murder profit from trade of these minerals. Sale of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold mined in the eastern part of the DRC finance the militia groups that contribute to the ongoing violence in the country. These armed groups that reap enormous profits from the mineral trade in eastern Congo regularly commit shocking atrocities as they fight to control the region's most valuable mines. As well as the transportation routes and opportunities to impose taxes on everyone involved in this trade. The world's news media totally ignores this conflict. Could it have anything do do with... well draw your own conclusions why the lives of these victims are so devalued and ignored. The armed groups perpetuating the violence generate an estimated $144 million each year by trading in four main minerals, gold, tantalum, tungsten, and tin. All of of these are required to make our consumer electronics products function properly. The global demand for coltan increased when cell-phone and other electronic manufacturers discovered that this element could be used to make the products more compact. Tantalum capacitors are essential to the miniaturization of our cell phones and other gadgets. Cobalt is an important component of rechargeable batteries in mobile phones, laptops and digital cameras. Since the beginning of 2009 there has been an alarming increase in reports of sexual violence which has coincided with the renewed offensive by the Congolese armed forces against the FDLR, a Rwandan Hutu militia whose leadership was responsible for the Rwandan genocide. Many of these incidents have occurred in and around mineral rich areas of the eastern Congo. Coltan is mined by hand in the Congo by groups of men digging basins in streams and then scraping off the surface mud. A team can mine one kilo of coltan per day. Children work in mines under horrible conditions. Women are violently raped by rebels and soldiers alike and abandoned by their communities. The entire process of putting that cell phone in your pocket results in indescribable horror at every step of the way. Because war costs money weapons, ammunition and equipment have to be purchased, troops must be paid and fed. The armed thugs either occupy the mines and force civilians to work there, or they block the roads and airports on which the minerals are transported so they can illegally tax the drivers, pilots and traders. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is as large as Texas, California, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado combined. Within this huge area there are only 300 miles of paved roads. Every day, porters carry 50 kilogram backpacks of this valuable rock across a 40-mile footpath to reach one of the many mines. Only to be met at the end of the trail at gunpoint by government soldiers who refuse reimbursement for their deadly trip.make up to five dollars a day for this work. http://www.facebook.com/conspiracyfiles http://www.youtube.com/conspiracyfiles
