Blood Coltan(2007)-Documentary

Coltan2..

The mobile phone is a remarkable piece of engineering. But look inside. There’s blood in this machine.

There’s blood in this device because your mobile contains tiny electronic circuits, and they couldn’t work without mineral called COLTAN.

It’s mined in the eastern Congo. There is blood here, the blood of Congolese who are dying in a terrible conflict.

Congolese miners dig at a gold mine in Montgbawalu

The West’s demand for Coltan, used in mobile phones and computers, is funding the killings in Congo. Under the close watch of rebel militias, children as young as ten work the mines hunting for this black gold.

Blood Coltan exposes the web of powerful interests protecting this blood trade. Meet the powerful warlords who enslave local population and the European businessmen who continue importing Coltan, in defiance of the UN.

  2. Unfortunately, the African leaders are victims of brainwashing and the search for Western validation is so strong,which hurts the poor people!
    These African leaders have forgotten how the Western countries took their own people, like circus animals were derided in zoos!
    Europe and America are not so different, justify that Europeans are not racist like the Americans are insane!
    Every community in this world is united and strong, but we blacks no!
    Last year there were numerous revolts in South Africa, the South Africans have treated the Nigerian migrants and other African migrants as invaders, intruders, they’ve beaten them, killed them, and threatened to death them! A horrible thing, a shame! The thing that did me more crap, and how they treated the white strangers, and the Afrikaners as the gods! It seems that the Apartheid, is a distant memory!

      • Last year there was the World Championship of Cricket, there was this white bitch in the subway, she was wearing the shirt of South Africa! I remember how this white bitch was staring at me! She was look like, how she was seeking for validation from me, she was going to say “look at me, I am more African than you!” “Are you fuck kidding me bitch?”
        These beasts, have captured our ancestors to erase all traces of African root inside us! How already I told you these white crack Africans,they suck me!
        All these things happen today, to let you think! Do you understand how us blacks, we don’t have right to be blacks and reclame what belong to us? Other peoples claiming their roots, but not us! Why?
        Because we have our ribs these cave beasts!

      • I know how they are. It’s very frustrating having to live around them sometimes. They really can drain your energy. Stay strong sista and keep your head up!

  3. This genocidal rush for recourses was started by a perfidious act – covered by Bill Clinton and Madeleine Albright – and presented upside down, the Rwanda tragedy perpetrated by the US Agent Kagame! “Rwanda, Half of the Truth is a Whole Lie: Twenty Years of Brazen Desinformation!” http://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2014/04/20/rwanda-half-of-the-truth-is-a-whole-lie-twenty-years-of-brazen-desinformation/

  4. Since a whole number of menth I´m busy to present the “whole picture” of the attack on the Southern Hemisphere, East Asia and all Non-Western countries by the WASP US Power Elite:
    “US Power Elite Declared War on the Southern Hemisphere, East Asia and all Non-Western Countries in September 2000”: https://wipokuli.wordpress.com/2016/03/13/us-power-elite-declared-war-on-the-southern-hemisphere-east-asia-and-all-non-western-countries-in-september-2000/

      • Welcome! I hope many people will spread this. The Neocon dominated US Power Elite is applying a depopulation policy. Biowarfare, usage of uranium covered amunition in their colonial wars and so on. We are confronted with a new Fascism covered by sweet talks about freedom and Democracy. At present they are “turning the Tide” in Latin America and for that they´re trying to give a deadly hug to Cuba. Let´s hope Cuba will resist! Cordial regards
