Slavery is Not a Game

Aunque esta campaña está escrita en inglés, ya que la organización internacional que la promueve es de habla inglesa, creemos que podría interesarte.

Most electronics devices contain minerals that originate in the mines of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, often called “conflict minerals.” 

And as you read this, men, women and children are being threatened with force – often at gunpoint – to work in Congolese mines where conflict minerals for our electronics devices come from. 

While many big electronics companies have already taken steps to get rid of conflict minerals in their supply chain, Nintendo has yet to join the electronics industry audit program for conflict-free smelters nor has it required its suppliers to use only conflict-free smelters – the bare minimum requirement for taking action on conflict minerals.

Call on Nintendo to take the first step toward ensuring their products are free of conflict minerals mined with slavery by auditing their supply chain according to industry standards and making this information public.

      Nintendo needs to ensure their products are free of conflict minerals that are actually mined with slave labor. If other electronic companies can take these steps, then Nintendo definitely can do this also. There is no excuse for slave labor in the world of 2014!
