Right to Life over illegal gold profits !
Nothing says “I love you” like… 20 tonnes of mining waste?! That’s how much waste rock is dug up and discarded to produce the amount of gold in a single ring!
Have we become individuals so utterly manipulated by marketing, reduced to only our consumerist function,? Are we just shoppers – eager to buy and consume anything and everything, compulsively, frantically, ostentatiously – without any consideration of the consequences of our choices?
The legal gold mining industry wants you to think that gold is an important mineral for clean energy and technological devices. But the reality is that 92% of gold produced annually is used for jewelry and investments (i.e., to sit in bank vaults).
Why is mining gold one of the world’s most destructive industries? This short documentary from Deutsche Welle looks at gold’s “value” in society and how mining this “precious” mineral is one of the most destructive industries in the world.
The dark truth behind your jewelry:
Indigenous peoples use the water in the rivers and streams in their ancestral territories for drinking, cooking, bathing and fishing.
Legal Gold mining: The environmental impact of Barrick Gold and other corporations in the gold industry is devastating. Indigenous children and their families are poisoned by cyanure because of legal gold mining in their territory.
Illegal Gold mining: The environmental impact of illegal gold mining is devastating. Indigenous children and their families are dying from malnutrition and mercury poisoning because of illegal gold mining in their territory.
That’s a lot of negative impacts for a luxury item!
Gold mining and other extractive industries contaminate the water, poisoning people, wildlife and the soil.
Please help Indigenous peoples, Nature and wildlife by boycotting all products from deforestation; gold, palm oil, gemstones, exotic wood, soy, beef, etc.!
We need to reconsider our relationship with all of the living world and no longer think like consumers in an economy but recognize that we are organisms in an ecosystem.
How are you being manipulated by the gold and diamond jewelry, watches and accessories industry? The more you know, the less gold glows!
