2015 Oxford African History Campaign: Don’t Bite the Apple
- As of this year, Apple is not the richest corporation on planet Earth. We love it’s Apple I phone and so on. But, Apple’s profits would not be possible without the labour of children in the Congo who damage their lungs mining the precious metal without which our phones and computers would not work. Join in writing to Apple asking them to stop using children as miners; use some of Apple’s vast profits to create infrastructure in the Congo and ensure that the miners of the Congo receive market values for the precious metals which Apple needs.
