The Minor Miners - Stop child mining in Africa
 
05:04
https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/c3e2506c The film "The Minor Miners" is about the plight of child labor in Mali and the dreadful experiences of the children who are artisanal child miners in Mali. The film hopes to bring the issue to wider attention, but the fundraising is not simply geared towards the making of the film but to sponsor child education and to form an NGO.

Desperate men and children scour underwater mine-shafts in this terrifying report. Breathing through nothing more than a thin pipe connected to an air compressor, going 30 foot deep underwater for hours in search of gold is all in a day’s work for 16-year-old Gerald. "I'm afraid, if the earth collapses, I will get buried underneath" says the teenager. Surrounded by rock walls in the pitch black darkness of the water, the men chip away at walls for 3 hours. They find no gold. For many like Gerald school is a distant memory, and illegally diving for gold the only alternative to starvation. Hundreds of deaths by electrocution, drowning and even the possibility of Mercury poisoning have had little impact on compressor mining activities, which continue un-policed and unregulated. There appears little hope of change on the horizon. "If I could only give job opportunities - I will take them away from compressor mining. It is just that I have no alternative at this point" says Ricarte Padilla, Mayor of Jose Panganiban - Philippines' so-called "Gold Coast". As it is, the children and family men unearthing 60-80kg of gold per month see the lions share of wealth disappear into the Chinese black market.

Black Lives Matter – Exposing the Dangers of Artisanal Gold Mining in Mali

Crowd Funding to End Child Slavery and Educate as to the Dangers of ‘Bling’ → http://news.massmediaseo.com/black-lives-matter-exposing-the-dangers-of-artisanal-gold-mining-in-mali/ → http://www.massmediaseo.com/staff/login Human Rights Watch has recently announced that 20,000 – 40,000 children are used as slave laborers in the artisanal gold mines of Mali. Repetitive injuries to the neck and spinal cord from lifting heavy loads in confined spaces and heavy exposure to toxic substances such as mercury often lead to early death. Many of the children have never attended school and receive little MONEY for the labor they endure, while young girls are often sexually exploited. Under international law, the government of Mali is required to protect these children from economic exploitation, trafficking and abuse. There is no evidence of these protections as the Malian government is one of the primary beneficiaries of artisanal mining. Film maker Moctar Menta, and producer of the independent film Gold of Dangers, perilously penetrated these child-slave communities and covertly obtained footage documenting the lives of these children. However because of the difficulty of concealing audio and video equipment, the footage he was able to gather was highly limited. Much to the chagrin of the Malian government, Mr. Menta has recently announced that he intends to return to the mines and expose the human rights abuses that these children endure daily in an effort bring awareness to the issue of modern day child slave labor. Gold accounts for 75% of all Malian exports and due to an unstable Euro, the demand is increasing as more child laborers arrive daily. Human Rights Watch has pleaded with the Malian government to “immediately take steps to end the use of mercury by child laborers”. It seems their pleas have fallen on deaf ears as conditions have only worsened in the more than 350 mining sites across Mali. Lack of access to education is one of the causes of child labor and artisanal mining. The net enrollment rate was 60.6% and only 56.3% of children completed primary school. Many children are born into these remote mining communities where there is no school infrastructure, these children have never seen a world outside of Mali’s dark and dirty mining industry. The communities that do offer access to education are expected to perform their labor in the mines as well as their scholastic responsibilities; most eventually abandon the schools as the exhaustion of a 10 hour day consumes a 10 year old body.

Here is a short movie about the artisanal miners and the way they work in Mali. This is the biggest gold rush in modern history and it is on now as we watch. We have tried to estimate how many people are working but it is very hard. The miners on the gold fields make a very good living from the hard work and they are using metal detectors, machines and normal pans to get the gold. We are very happy about the gold rush and it proves that hard work pays, in gold.

Artisanal Gold Mining Mali
 
04:20
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING: The people mining this gold are local people who own the right to the gold through ancestral domain. In other words, they are not working for dirt under exploitative conditions. These are farmers who mine gold and fish between harvest and planting seasons. It is the only way some of them have to earn cash. They keep all the gold they find and sell it themselves at the fair market rate. They are not getting ripped off, and they are not being poisoned by mercury. Yes, there are mines in the hills near this location wher people are exploited and work under very dangerous conditions. I visited one of the bad mines and was not welcome, which is very strange anywhere in Mali. Anyway, these people are doing it voluntarily and receive full value for their take. This is: People panning for gold using traditional techniques on the Niger River, Mali, West Africa. They seem to get about one or two US dollars-worth in an afternoon when sold at local market (probably a lot more than that now). There are few other ways to earn cash there. Plus, this is during the hottest time of year and working in the river isn't so bad... Check out my book about traditional fishing and hunting in Mali: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H7XPCI8

M/S Woman sits with child M/S Child SCRIPT Mali: Foreign miners close in as Malians chase fool's gold Government plans to end the practice of traditional, untaxed mining for gold in Mali could threaten the livelihoods of many ordinary Malians, whilst boosting investment opportunities for foreign companies. Whole families work in Mali's so-called "traditional" gold mines, where they use basic tools and their bare hands to search for pieces of the precious metal. Those working in traditional mines do not have to pay taxes, but they exist without social security. They dig without proper geological surveys and with highly limited safety precautions. Rocks are extracted manually before being pounded, sifted and washed. If the enterprising miner gets lucky, hours of back-breaking labour will yield small grains of gold. These precious pieces will be taken to the market and sold for a few dollars a gram. The money will then be divided between all those who went down the pit - sometimes as many as 1,000 miners. Adama Tsanal, a worker in the mines expressed his discontent at the system: "I'm not happy as I work more than I get. It's not for pleasure - it's a hard job and it's disproportionate." The majority of gold from Mali, Africa's third largest producer, is exported to Europe and China for jewellery. The game of luck is, for many, the only way of earning a buck. Yet, their work is under threat. Gold - one of the country's few thriving industries - is apparently being eyed by foreign corporations, and the government is keen to regulate the highly lucrative sector. Lassana Guindo, president of the National Direction of Geology and Mines, explained: "The activity reached a huge scale - we lose a lot. The black market is growing. There is no tax system. We don't get a penny from it." Opposition to the gold mining industry state that traditional gold mining does not improve the life of its workers, but exploits them to the benefit of the owners and exporters of the precious metal. Vindication for this claim derives from the fact that Mali's gold exports have more than tripled in the last decade, yet ordinary Malians have not seen the benefits of increased sales. Change to the trade is seen as necessary by many in Mali, but mine owner Broulaye Diallo questioned whether the government's proposals had the people's best interests at heart: "Will these others change anything to the better for people? It's a big question and that makes me sad." Industrial mines, often referred to as "government" mines, are mostly privatised, with only 20 percent of their revenues being paid into the country's coffers.

Right To Play: A Visit to Yanfolila, Mali
 
03:11
Right To Play CEO Kevin Frey went out to Yanfolila, Mali, to interview local children about how Right To Play's Jam Suka ("Child Protection") program is helping them. Children in Yanfolila used to be forced to work in wildcat gold mines to support their families. The mines are dangerous, no place for children to be, but local mine owners wanted cheap labour for their mines. Now, the village's elders have forbidden the owners from using children as miners, and the children of Yanfolila go to school instead.
Nigeria gold rush is killing children

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Hundreds of children in northern Nigeria's Zamfara state have died because of gold mining. More than 400 have perished in the past two years, and thousands of young children are at risk of disability as they are being poisoned by lead, which is used in the mining process. And non-compliance of safe mining options and lack of simple low-tech machinery has not helped the cause. International medical humanitarian group, Doctors Without Borders, believes it is "the worst outbreak in modern history". Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Abare in Zamfara state.

The case of the AngloGold Ashanti Iduapriem Mine in Ghana
 
08:16
The Iduapriem gold mine is owned by Anglo Gold Ashanti, the second largest gold mining company worldwide, based in South Africa. The World Bank owns part and has invested into the mine for more than ten years. The mine is located in the Wassa West District, Ghana, which has the highest concentration of gold mines in Africa. What the Iduapriem mine does to the local communities is to literally eat up their land and local infrastructure: farming gets increasingly impossible, water supplies become short or contaminated and children have dropped out of school because they cannot reach there anymore. Teberebie is a resettlement village of 700 inhabitants. They have already lost their traditional lands, now they are loosing the land they farm to a huge waste rock dump. In 2004, an agreement was reached to provide the farmers with new land. So far this commitment is on paper only.
