The Congo's Midas Curse (http://motherjones.com/photoessays/2010/02/congo-photo-essay-gold-mining-diamonds)

This is a compelling photo essay on what the Congolese people have to do to make a living to supply the wealthier nations with their "Bling".

Companion Story well worth the read. Blood and Treasure. (http://motherjones.com/politics/2010/02/congo-gold-adam-hochschild)

I'm rather emotional after having seen that, especially of the baby who had died.
