Help end "Blood Gold" sales

Tell the SEC: implement rules that will end mining's financing of human rights abuses

TAKE ACTION

Click here to tell the SEC to help put a stop to "Blood Gold".

Right now, gold mining is financing war, murder and rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo and nearby countries.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is drafting rules that, if thorough, will discourage sales of this “Blood Gold” – putting a significant dent in its trade.

The end goal: to reduce the associated human rights abuses in the DRC and nearby countries.

Unfortunately, many companies and industries that will be bound by this rule are pushing the SEC to water them down.

TAKE ACTION: Please tell the Securities and Exchange Commission that their rules must get “Blood Gold” out of the gold supply chain!

The SEC needs to hear from you! Comments are due by next Wednesday, March 2nd.

Tell the SEC you don't want any more Blood Gold in your electronics and jewelry!

More information:

Under the Dodd-Frank Act passed by Congress last year, companies listed on US stock exchanges that manufacture with gold have to declare if that gold is DRC Conflict Free or Not DRC Conflict Free. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is working on finalizing its rules defining exactly how that reporting works. Comments are due by next Wednesday, March 2nd.
