Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With, "The Rape of a Nation", Marcus Bleasdale exposes the sub-human working conditions that Congolese miners are subjected to as a result of the consumer Western Worlds unquenchable thirst for diamonds. The miners, of whose back breaking work is used to extract the highly sought-out jewels, are not provided a living wage, basic medical care, or general safety or protection. The only certainty in this tangled web of deceipt and treachery is the financial enrichment the miners will provide for the lives of those who selfishly allow their misery to continue.

Due to the ongoing conflict of armed rebels and warlords who violently fight for control of this most beloved natural resource, 45,000 people a month unnecessarily lost their lives at the time of this books release as a result of these two warring factions lust for complete control of this precious symbol of wealth and stature. In a more generous world, these jewels would be used to enrich the lives of those who tirelessly labour day in and day out to unearth them instead of forcing upon them a down trodden life of poverty, heartache, and sexual exploitation.

Thankfully, Bleasdale shines a light of hope on ths dark atrocity by compassionately documenting with the lens of his camera the horrors the miners face to bring this stone into the reach of those whose greed and lack for human compassion knows no bounds. Although this book will not put an end to this unjust cycle of unmerciful exploiration, there is one thing that those who have read or own this book can do as consumers to make a difference. When purchasing jewelry embroidered with a diamond(s), simply ask the sales representative , "WHERE DOES THIS DIAMOND COME FROM".
