Where do computers come from? And phones? Some of you maybe will think: “from the store” but, in fact, there is a long story behind any tech devices. Some of the components which these machines use are made from minerals which come, in their majority, from Africa. The problem is: not all the mineral industries in the African continent are treating their workers correctly. Most of them, are what we know as modern slaves.

In a few days, the European Parliament it is going to vote new laws and regulations about where all this minerals come from and if they are from fair trade. It is in this moment when, if you really appreciate tech, you can really help people in Congo and in other regions to have a better life. Please, go to this page from Walk Free and sign the petition. Ask for a fair trade.
