It seems that the lucrative business of cobalt mining also results in landgrabbing...
Al Jazeera reported in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, authorities want to pay around 10 thousand families to move away from lucrative cobalt mines to make way for foreign mining companies. However, many people are refusing to leave because they do not trust the government to provide fair compensation..
An update from Amnesty International:
"Thanks to you and our supporters around the world Microsoft are beginning to bow to pressure."
Microsoft released a report in October 2018 setting out the steps they’ve taken to map their cobalt supply chain. While this is progress, Microsoft has a long way to go to meet our concerns and international standards.
The company has yet to tell us exactly how they’re identifying, preventing and addressing potential human rights abuses in their cobalt supply chain.
We’re halting our action for the moment, but we won’t let Microsoft rest until they follow up on their commitments, and there is real evidence of change on the ground in the Democratic Republic of the Congo..
