In my high school english class, we're learning about genocides. Currently we're working on ways to prevent genocides from occuring. As you may know, there is a genocide happening right now in Congo, a result of fighting over the country's resources. This loss of human life is increased because there aren't many restrictions for companies that use the resources found in Congo. Please strengthen the restrictions so that conflict minerals are not used by any electronics companies, and thank you for your effort in preventing conflict minerals from being traded along with people's lives.
