Come Clean for Congo

See video

This is a one-minute video made in BC for a competition organized by to raise awareness about conflict minerals coming out of the Congo. The goal is to put pressure on manufacturers to clean up supply chains connected with controversially-mined materials that go into many of our every day technologies--computers, cell phones, etc. To the point and powerful, it's a lovely little example of the interconnection of global conflict and Canadian society, as well as our oft-neglected daily implication in these intricate conflicts.

Healy and Weber were just selected today as one of three finalists in the competition! Congratulations, boys!
