Podcast Reveals Modern Day Slavery at CCP-Controlled Cobalt Mines in the Congo – by Bryan Jung (The Epoch Times – December 28, 2022)


A revealing podcast has again brought to light the problem of slavery at Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-owned cobalt mines in the Congo and the hypocrisy of green energy advocates.

Siddharth Kara, author of Cobalt Red: How The Blood of The Congo Powers Our Lives and a visiting Harvard professor, told his host Joe Rogan about his research and findings after his visit to the mines in the Democratic Republic of The Congo (DRC). He explained to Rogan the brutal connection between lithium battery powered devices and their source of origin in the CCP-controlled cobalt mines.

Cobalt is an essential rare earth mineral used in the manufacturing of almost all rechargeable batteries, including phones, iPads, smart watches, laptops, and electric vehicles.

Kara, who is an author and expert on modern-day slavery, human trafficking, and child labor, claimed that approximately 72 percent of the cobalt mined worldwide comes from the DRC. The professor wrote about how slave labor and child labor are used to operate the CCP cobalt mines in Africa under appalling conditions.
