Before watching Unwatchable in the community channel, I did not know anything about the Coltan, this blood mineral. After I watched, I decided to do something about it. So, I made this image to inform other people who may not have heard about it.. In the hope that these horrible events stop and these poor unfortunate people find peace in their ordinary life for good.
Tantalum from coltan is used to manufacture electronic capacitors, used in consumer electronics products such as mobile phones, DVD players, video game systems and computers.
