" A new documentary film, "Blood in the Mobile," powerfully addresses both the limits of the imagination and our sense of connection to atrocities committed on the other side of the world. Through a shaky camera in the damp and dark mines of eastern Congo, filmmaker Frank Poulsen introduces us to some of the young men (and even children) toiling at the first stage of Congo's lucrative business in tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold. But the wealth of this industry doesn't really benefit the Congolese miners for their back-breaking, perilous and poorly paid work -- not by a long shot. "

So ladies and Gents,this Holiday season please be aware of what you are purchasing and the millions of people murdered and suffering who brought the minerals and materials out from the mines in Africa..

Let's stop the exploitation of the innocent,we can help and make a difference.

Militia groups and factions of the Congo's army control many mines, imposing heavy "taxes" on miners for whom there are few alternatives for making a living. Juxtapose these gritty images of Congo with shots filmed at the headquarters of Nokia, the electronics powerhouse that sells these minerals in its consumer products, and you have a message that is difficult to ignore: the cell phones, laptops, digital cameras and other products we have come to rely on link all of us to the conflict in Congo.

What happens to these people if the demand drops? I can't figure how the problem can be fixed by no buying the materials. I think the solution can only be that all large enterprises need to share in a reasonable maner the profits with all workers.

That would be the over all goal..First creating awareness to what is truly happening and then working towards eliminating the tribal dictators access to the resources so the people can share in the wealth and fortunes.

Once the demand drops the money supply which is being used to purchase arms to keep the people hostage and docile,would be a major deterent against terrorist networks that occupy the area like the LRA and Al - Shabaab who are being empowered from activities such as this.


This would also help to shutdown the Somalia pirates and regional warlords that abuse, rape, kill and abduct children as soldiers into their armies.

Communication devices are necessary in this world and some jobs make them mandatory.

The karma goes to the world's mismanagement team, but the ones we can pin it on our leaders.

We hire, managers for our children's inheritance in our estate, that is our country and we expect stirling behavior, with win/win's for everyone, and very good rules of conduct. And they have embassy's and negotiators to educate and upgrade other countries.

Anything else is fraud, embezzlement and treason and we got shafted by a criminal and we need to not just wait for elections and not just wait for more of their crooks thrown up through party ranks, but form citizens groups that play hard ball and willing to toss them. And with citizens groups in every community educating the town, these groups can also be individual, and united.

If someone who won't play ball with a wide awake public, and there is support and outrage over it, and won't step down or create rules to eject any who are traitors to their positions, then I feel people should elect another leader and create a system within the system and starve the old system out.
