How much BLOOD did your mobile cost?

Meandering Matrix highlights this incredible article from the Independent.  It is long but please take the time to read a few paragraphs.

It shows that through our consumerism we are fuelling the violence in Congo.  It is because of the gold, diamonds, and materials used to make mobile phones and tin cans that millions of innocents are being killed, raped, mutilated, forced to kill their own families.

I am at a loss about how to respond.
