Blood in the mobile

25 Marzo 2011, 13:56

A lo largo de los últimos 15 años, 5 millones de personas han perdido la vida a consecuencia de una guerra civil en el Congo. El documental Blood in the Mobile del director danés Frank Piaseckik muestra la conexión entre esta guerra y nuestros teléfonos móviles.

“We love our cell phones and the selection between different models has never been bigger. But the production of phones has a dark, bloody side. By buying so-called conflict minerals the phone companies are financing the civil war in DR Congo that, according to human rights organisations, has been the bloodiest conflict since World War II. The illegal mine industry is controlled by armed groups. The war will continue as long as armed groups can finance their warfare by selling minerals that end up in our phones”

Os dejamos el trailer del documental y el enlace a una entrevista con Piaseckik realizada por el diario El País
