• 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...

The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo.

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.

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.

French/Nat The once thriving Congolese capital Brazzaville has been transformed into a virtual ghost town following four months of fighting in the country's bitter civil war. Almost all the residents of the city have fled and those that remain are too frightened to venture out. The streets are deserted, but for marauding bands of soldiers. APTV has this special report. The Congolese capital of Brazzaville has been ravaged over the last four months by a bitter civil war. Nearly all the town's civilian population has fled to the countryside or across the river to Kinshasa, in neighbouring Congo. Aid workers say only about 10 percent of the city's 800-thousand residents remain. The streets are now the domain of militia members from both sides. But the capital is held by rebel soldiers loyal to ex-president Sassou Nguesso. His rebel troops are known as the Cobras. For them, this is a war with few trained soldiers, little discipline and scarcely any vehicles. In Cobra-held territory electricity and telephones are nearly non-existant and fuel is in short supply. But the Cobras say they will continue fighting to protect what is important to them despite their poor equipment. SOUNDBITE:(French) "We are not fighting because we like it or for personal reasons of finance or anything else. The reason we are fighting is the protection of our families". SUPER CAPTION: Cobra Fighter The badly armed fighters have managed to hold at bay the better supplied troops of President Pascal Lissouba and have captured three quarters of the country, as well as holding their positions in the capital. Gunfire echoes regularly around the wreckage of the town, and the few people living there, the Cobras included, live in fear of Lissouba's helicopters, which have recently begun dropping heavy bombs. Outside the compound of former president Sassou Nguesso is a reminder of the origins of the war. This armoured personnel carrier was sent by President Lissouba to kill Sassou Nguesso in a move which sparked the conflict. The former president left Brazzaville when the fighting got too close for comfort. But his troops remain, patrolling the streets and manning checkpoints, their bravery fuelled by beer and their AK-47s, the only commodities they seem to have enough of.

Tanzania has signed a $346.9 million loan with the African Development Bank to build new roads that will help transform the country into a regional trade and transport hub. The East African nation wants to profit from its long coastline and upgrade its aging railways and roads to serve growing economies in the land-locked heart of Africa. Servacius Likwelile, permanent secretary of Tanzania's finance ministry has said part of the loan would be used to fund feasibility studies for rail and airport projects. Oil discoveries in Kenya and Uganda and gas finds in Tanzania have sent governments to undertake new infrastructure projects after decades of underinvestment.

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
