I’m being super lazy. Deal with it.

An effort on US university campuses and others around the world to raise awareness about issues facing DR Congo is in full force this week. One of the activities to show solidarity is a ‘cell-out’ from 12pm – 6pm today, to recognize the use of coltan and the resulting abuse of workers in bad conditions, including children, in the mining of coltan / tantalum.

Join in a WaPo sponsored chat with Congo Week organizer Kambale Musavuli at 12 noon EST today.

Interestingly enough, Kambale Musavuli is a student at an NC university.
