Students in Georgetown against the use of coltan from the Congo
Sadly, the value of diamonds and some minerals can distort economies and lead to horrendous situations, as in conflict diamonds.
"No Blood for Coltan" is a campaign to raise awareness of the role of coltan in fueling one of the most devastating human catastrophes since World War II. The war over coltan is estimated to be responsible for the deaths of four million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 1998.
