Congolese children work, fight and die for our cell phones and diamonds

Rape Crisis in Congo Tied to Mining Activity

Dominique Soguel, Women's eNews: "Activists concerned by this year's escalation of sexual violence in eastern Congo are trying to turn up the heat on those benefitting - directly or indirectly - from illicit mineral extractions. 'Conflict minerals power our entire electronic industry,' John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, told US senators at a May 13 hearing on sexual violence in eastern Congo and Sudan."

Orphaned, Raped and Ignored

By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF

Sometimes I wish eastern Congo could suffer an earthquake or a tsunami, so that it might finally get the attention it needs. The barbaric civil war being waged here is the most lethal conflict since World War II and has claimed at least 30 times as many lives as the Haiti earthquake. Yet no humanitarian crisis generates so little attention per million corpses, or such a pathetic international response.
