• 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. Those in charge of the mine operate legally. And above all there are no militia groups who finance themselves by smuggling resources. The long civil war is the biggest problem in east Congo - funded by the resource wealth in the ground. 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 n...

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.

On the 50th Anniversary of of Che Guevara’s secret mission to Congo photographer Jan-Joseph Stok and filmmaker Ben Crowe will follow in Che’s footsteps to the land of the spirits, where every dream has its shadow.

To help: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1948277923/che-in-congo From Jan-Joseph and Ben: On the eve of the 50th Anniversary of Che Guevara’s secret mission to Congo we will follow Che’s footsteps to Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. CHE IN CONGO is a unique approach to understanding Congo's past, present and future by award-winning photojournalist Jan-Joseph Stok and Palme D'Or nominated filmmaker Ben Crowe. Through photography and film we will explore this unrevealed chapter of Che Guevara's life. How do Che's ideals of liberty, equality, justice and self determination resonate with Congolese people today? On our journey we will document the issues faced by the people of Congo and hear about their dreams for a better future. Because of the nature of this project - experimental and personal - it makes it hard to finance in a conventional way. Journalistic assignments demand a certain way of working and certain kinds of images. This project will have its own independent character and needs to be free in its approach in order to be successful. We will be giving voice to people we meet on the road and in villages. We'll be off the beaten path embracing the randomness of encounters. The creative nature of this project and the difficult conditions of working in Congo mean that we need to break the project into two steps. The first step is this Kickstarter funded trip planned for late 2014. In 2015 we aim to make a second field trip funded by other sources like grants. The money that we raise will go to funding: Material for a PHOTOBOOK PROJECT AND EXHIBITION based on work in Tanzania and DR Congo. Jan-Joseph will focus on documenting the different aspects of Che's mission and the lives and stories of the people we encounter, capturing the feeling and essence of the places where Che Guevara and his men lived and fought. He will use different photographic techniques to express the journey - reportage, strong portraits and landscape photography (panorama/360degrees photography) - revealing the past and present and how the two are intertwined. A series of SHORT EXPERIMENTAL DOCUMENTARY FILMS for multimedia, art gallery and international film festivals. This will be a moment for creative filmmaking and experimentation to find different filmic responses - aesthetic, political and ethical - to the journey and stories we uncover. The video materials will also form part of a wider feature-length documentary film planned for 2015 which we hope to fund from other sources. The Kickstarter campaign will be at the vanguard of this journey! Over the course of the project, we will be working closely with Teun van der Heijden (www.heijdenskarwei.com ), Photobook Maker, who is also part of our team, and who will be involved throughout. In 1965, at the height of Cold War, Che Guevara left Cuba on a secret journey to Eastern Congo. His mission was to support the Congolese revolutionary insurgency against imperialist forces. What became known as the Simba rebellion pitched a dozen Congolese politicians and commanders including latter day President Laurent Kabila against the Congolese army led by Joseph Mobutu, white mercenaries and CIA trained anti-Castro Cubans. With a few hundred Cuban and Congolese fighters, Che and his men fought for six months in the forests and hills of South Kivu and Katanga province. The mission was a disaster. encircled by enemy forces, Che and his men evaded capture in an ignoble escape across Lake Tanganyika. Just a few days later, Mobutu deposed the President of Congo in a coup d’etat and made himself ruler of the newly named Zaire: a tyrant of the people for the next thirty years. Two years later, Che was killed during a similar doomed mission in Bolivia. His ‘revolutionary heroism’ and sacrifice – both celebrated and despised in equal measure – laid the foundation for the global icon of revolution we know today.

I am not only talking about mineral resources that lie in the ground unextracted so far, but also a diverse package of natural resources. On top of this, labor is the cheapest in the world. You can run a company paying people from $50 to a maximum of $1000 a month, and people will turn up to work for you regardless of how hard work conditions are. I am talking about 70 million of Congolese with approximately 20 million available for work. Let me come back to investment opportunity. Consider the cultivable land itself, only 3% of the 2,5 million sq km land area are used for agriculture. The lowest rate of used land. Almost 100% of Congolese land is cultivable, and fertile, for God sake only 3% has been used. Come on. That is what I am talking about. You put your money in agriculture, you become a giant in food industry , a tycoon in the world by feeding the entire African continent and some part of the world. I am serious. Put aside the timber industry, put aside oil in the Congo basin, in the lake albert, put aside, Gold, diamond, zinc, cobalt, Uranium, copper each of these mineral in trillion of value right there sitting in the Congo and waiting for smart investors, put aside the potential for cattle herding, Congo also have high value hydro electricity potential to feed each African country with power. High value wild animal reserves. Those are other opportunities for investment. I mean what are we waiting for people? Come on. All it takes is only to pacify this region, which depend of the will of the power of this world to bang on criminals in that region, who are Paul Kagame and Yoweri Museveni, and the current leadership of the Congo. These are the stumble blocks for that region development. A pacified Congo will not only benefit investors, but it will open job opportunities for Uganda, Rwanda , Burundi and every nation that will provide expertise, and open a way for exportation of all that wealth.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Dutch managed to dominate world trade, and they did all through the pioneering use of corporations and finance. Well, they did also use some traditional methods like violently enforced monopolies, unfair trade agreements, and plain old warfare. You'll learn how the Dutch invented stuff like joint stock corporations, maritime insurance, and futures trading. Basically, how the Dutch East India Company crashed the US economy in 2008.

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. Those in charge of the mine operate legally. And above all there are no militia groups who finance themselves by smuggling resources. The long civil war is the biggest problem in east Congo - funded by the resource wealth in the ground. 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

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

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!

In the DRC, according to the United Nations, nearly 5,000 people are being forced from their homes every day. The internal displacement is due primarily to a continuing conflict between tribal groups and government troops in the Central Kasai region. The situation has left millions without access to food and water. VOA's Kevin Enochs reports.

He said their mandate will now allow them to enforce peace if necessary. "The intervention brigade will address all this violence and will try their best to protect human life and human rights and human dignity of all the people here." This part of Congo is close to Rwanda, which is accused of helping the M23 insurgent group, currently involved in hostilities with the Congolese army. Meanwhile, the World Bank has announced an aid package totaling a billion dollars, to finance health, education and Hydro electric projects. It'll also try to stimulate development and cross border trade. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews
