AFJN staff visited the gold mine of Mukera in the Fizi territory of South Kivu Province as well as Goma, the Capital of North Kivu province. AFJN's visit aimed to bring the voices of the artisanal miners and concerned Congolese civil society groups together to demand the release of the rules of section 1502. Each day the much needed mining sector reform is delayed is another day of conflict and insecurity in DRC. We believe a strong conflict mineral policy will help stop the ongoing violence which began in 1996, has claimed nearly 6 million lives, displaced millions, and continues a climate of crimes including corruption, assassination and mass rape of women and men just to name a few.
