Take action to support the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Petition Details

We want the Government to provide support to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to help them defeat rebels and regain their land. We also want sanctions to be imposed on nations that are supporting these rebels, and new regulations around the cobalt supply chain.

Additional Information

Since 1996, conflict in eastern DRC has led to approximately six million deaths. As a world and as humans we should care that this is happening to innocent people men, women and children. We are huge consumers of the minerals that they are doing this for and therefore should have a duty of care to ensure that this is sourced ethically.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
