Nintendo: Slavery is Not a Game
Hallo! Das ist eine gesponserte Petition, von der wir dachten, dass Sie interessant für Nutzer aus (Deutschland) sein könnte.
Nintendo has been a leader in the gaming world, but it has failed miserably on the problem of ‘conflict minerals’ mined with slave labour and violence in the Congo in Africa.
Armed groups in the Congo round up villagers at gunpoint and force adults and children to dig for minerals used in electronics, from your cell phone to your gaming console.
While other big companies like HP, Apple and Microsoft have taken steps to make their products conflict-free, Nintendo has just been ranked dead last in the industry with a score of zero in a report by the anti-genocide group, the Enough Project.
Tell Nintendo: Slavery is not a game. Please take the first step towards making your products free of 'conflict minerals' mined with slavery by auditing your supply chain and making the information public.
- CEO of Nintendo
The violence and slavery associated with the production of minerals in the Congo is devastating. While other leading brands are making efforts to make their products free of slave-mined 'conflict minerals', we are disappointed by your score of Zero in the Enough Project's recent industry ranking. Please take the first step towards making your products free of conflict minerals by auditing your supply chain.
