This is a movie about diamond mining in Sierra Leone. Since the brutal civil war the Sierra Leone diamond industry is known as the source for the so called "Blood Diamonds". Diamonds that were mined under forced condition and traded on the illegal markets to purchase weapons. More than 10 years after the war, entrepreneurs rehabilitating the mining sector; for more traceability and fair prices paid to the miners.

Diamonds and Sacrifices (Excerpt from 'United in Hate: Central African Republic')
 
03:31
In March 2013, the Seleka, a coalition of predominantly Muslim-armed groups from the northeast, marched on the Central African Republic's capital Bangui and seized power. They committed mass atrocities against the population, and to the largely Christian population in the southwest, Muslims began to be associated with violence. They took up arms to form a Christian self-defense militia called the anti-balaka, and carried out revenge killings. By the end of 2013, the Central African Republic had descended into civil war. Under pressure from the international community, the Seleka were forced to give up power and retreated towards the northeast, where they regrouped. A United Nations peacekeeping mission and a French military operation were able to stem the fighting, but despite their presence, the transitional government has not been able to regain control of the country outside Bangui. With the anti-balaka controlling the southwest, and the Seleka controlling the northeast, the Central African Republic is de facto partitioned along ethno-religious lines. For those who find themselves on the wrong side of the divide, life has become hell. In this excerpt, the coordinator of the anti-balaka movement in Carnot takes VICE News to a diamond mine he oversees, which was reclaimed from Muslim owners during the recent conflict.

Royal African Diamonds, Diamond Wholesalers South Africa - Africa Travel Channel
 
02:25
At Royal African Diamonds, the journey begins deep in Africa, where the rough conflict free diamonds are sourced from mines. The rough diamond sorters, then look specifically at their colour, clarity, carat and shape. Planning is the first stage of the cutting process; where the final shape of the diamond is determined, so as to retain its maximum weight. The laser saw, has revolutionised the conventional cutting, enabling virtually any stone, to be cut in a limitless assortment of wondrous shapes. The diamonds are now bruited, which removes the pointed edges, and then polished, which is the final stage of the cutting process. The stones are then onto the Brillianteering stage, giving life to the stone by enhancing its brilliance and fire. At the next process the diamond is inspected and approved and then cleaned to a radiant shine. Finally, the diamond is ready to be set in jewellery, where you can select one of their custom design options. Royal African Diamonds has been selling quality, internationally certified diamonds wholesale to the public since 1966, and their range of unique jewellery and loose diamonds is sure to lure you.

Illegal Diamond Trade Flourishes in Angola (1996)

Dirty Diamonds (1996): Angola boasts the most dangerous and illegal diamond mines in the world. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures# Synopsis: From an aerial view, hundreds of men dot the crater ridden landscape. In small groups, bare chested, knee deep in murky water, they sieve gravel for hours until they spot the glitter of one tiny diamond. In town, we interview an illegal trader who compares diamond dealing to the blood diamond trade in a warzone. He takes out a small paper package from his trouser leg and slowly unwraps a cluster of uncut jewels. He carries them to bribe his way out of any difficult situations. The De Beers diamond cartel is keen to stop the illegal diamond trade. A spokesman maintains that most of Angola's diamonds are smuggled out the country and are therefore denied to the people of Angola. We would like to develop a first class diamond field and build a proper mining operation. In this way the country can be further developed. Local mining companies depend on private security firms to guarantee their safety. While filming, bandits with grenade launchers and machine guns take our reporter by surprise. After much bargaining, she is finally allowed to leave the area.

SOUTH AFRICA: DIAMOND TRADE
 
03:53
E English/Nat Diamonds used to be a girl's best friend. However today, with Western diamond-buying nations trying to stop the entry of so-called "blood" or "dirty diamonds" onto the market, the sparkling gems have become a political minefield. Civil wars in countries like Angola and Sierra Leone are believed to be funded largely by revenue from diamonds. Now experts from around the world, including war-torn Sierra Leone are to meet in South Africa on Tuesday (September 19) to thrash out ways of solving the thorny problems connected with the trade in diamonds It is the trade in these allegedly illicit diamonds that American lawmakers and the European Union amongst others are trying to curb. Now experts from around the world, including war-torn Sierra Leone are scheduled to meet in South Africa this week to thrash out ways of solving the thorny problems connected with the trade in diamonds It is estimated that about six percent of the world's diamonds are in the hands of Angola's rebel Unita movement. This figure helped a recent European Union decision to impose new diamond-related sanctions on the rebel group. And the United Nations' ban on the import of diamonds from Sierra Leone is gathering support. Smugglers are believed to be moving vast amounts of diamonds from countries like Angola and Sierra Leone, through neighbouring states and on to European diamond centres like Antwerp in Belgium where 85 percent of the world's rough diamonds are traded. The World Diamond Congress has imposed a package of measures to track diamonds from the mines to the jewellers stores. In the United States a group of lawmakers are presently trying to get Congress to pass a law requiring proof of origin of all diamonds sold on world markets. One suggestion is that diamonds be sold in sealed containers with a certificate of origin. At it's meeting in July, the World Diamond Congress supported a system of certification. Some argue that such controls could inflict significant economic damage on diamond-producing countries such as South Africa. De Beers diamond company which controls more than half of the world's diamonds, claims it is virtually impossible to tell where a diamond is originated. Johannesburg diamond merchant Max Barker agrees. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The question is, can you tell the source of rough stones and you can't. Not, not as a rule you can't. You can't. As I say you might have a suspicion but you can't. It's not like a motor car or a wrist watch or something which, it's you know ... there are ways and means of finding out the origin, with a rough diamond, it's very difficult." SUPERCAPTION: Max Barker, Managing Director, Diamond Supply Corporation Setting up and enforcing a certification system for the $6-billion-a-year industry would be at best difficult to control. SOUNDBITE: (English) "In one month there is probably millions of stones being sold worldwide or probably hundreds of millions traded worldwide every month. I mean, how? First of all you don't know the source of the stone and secondly if you did how are you going to control it?" SUPERCAPTION: Max Barker, Managing Director, Diamond Supply Corporation But consumers are starting to ask where their diamonds come from. Gone are the days when the simple act of buying an engagement ring was just an expensive, but romantic gesture. Nowadays pictures of victims of wars in African countries awash with minerals are starting to raise questions. Will the simple purchase of a diamond help result in further massacres? Consumers in the United States are regularly asking whether their gems are "conflict-free".

Sierra Leone Pastor finds 706 Carat Diamond which could be the 10th Largest EVER
 
03:49
A Christian pastor working in a Sierra Leone mine has found a 706-carat diamond, which could be the tenth largest ever found. The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country. It will be sold in Sierra Leone in a 'transparent' bidding process to benefit the country, according to a government statement. It read: 'A 706-carat diamond was presented to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma yesterday evening. 'Receiving the diamond President Koroma thanked the chief and his people for not smuggling the diamond out of the country.' Diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said it could be 'between the 10th and 15th largest gem-diamonds ever recovered' and such a find is very rare in a small mine. He said: 'Most recent exceptional diamond discoveries have been made by large commercial miners that mine very large volumes of kimberlite ore and process it with advanced equipment. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion.' Zimnisky said the stone would likely be sold outside Sierra Leone, despite the government's assertion, for better access to buyers. Without a professional assessment of the diamond's potential flaws and colouring it is impossible to value the stone. However, a polished stone cut from the Jonker, which is the 10th largest gem-diamond ever recovered until now at 726 carats, will go on sale in Hong Kong in May. A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million (£1.78 million to £2.75 million), or $88,000 to $144,000 for a single carat, Zimnisky said. A 1,111-carat diamond was discovered at a mine in Botswana in 2015, the biggest find for more than a century. That gem is second in size only to the Cullinan diamond which was unearthed in South Africa in 1905, at 3,106 carats uncut, according to the Cape Town Diamond Museum. The Cullinan was cut into several gems, including two set into the sceptre and crown of the British Crown Jewels. Historically, Sierra Leone has had a controversial role in the diamond industry. The sale of 'blood diamonds' helped finance civil wars across Africa in the 1990s and often funded military dictatorships on a continent that the London Diamond Bourse estimates provides 65 percent of the world's diamonds. Rebels allowed traders to exploit diamond mines and ship the gems abroad via Liberia. In one of the most notorious cases, former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor was found guilty of supporting the rebels in exchange for diamonds mined by slave labour. The district where the 706-carat diamond was discovered is where US-Belgian businessman Michel Desaedeleer, accused of enslavement and diamond trafficking during Sierra Leone's civil war, is alleged to have committed his crimes. He died in jail in September before he could stand trial. The death toll from Sierra Leone's civil war is estimated at 120,000. The country has a population of roughly six million people, making it one of Africa's deadliest conflicts in recent history.

Herkimer Diamond Mining "Behind the Scenes"
 
00:52
One goes to great lengths to mine for Herkimer Diamonds! Now the source and formation of Herkimer Diamonds is of particular interest to us here at American Geode because the Herkimer Diamond was formed in "pockets" not unlike the pockets that formed geodes. Most quartz crystals grow, over the course of millions of years attached to a matrix, attached to the surrounding rock or stone. So in those formations only one end of the quartz crystal grows to its point. With Herkimer Diamonds forming inside pockets, freed from the surrounding matrix stone, they grow points on both ends. The Herkimer Diamond began forming nearly 500 million years ago in pockets within a sedimentary rock called Dolostone (Dolomite and Limestone). Sedimentary rock, different from its two cousins Igneous rock and Metamorphic rock, is formed by layers of mineral and organic matter under hundreds of million years of pressure. As more layers of mineral and organic matter are deposited, this increases the pressure and weight on the lower and earlier layers of sedimentary rock below. The Dolostone covered Herkimer County during the Cambrian Age, when Herkimer County was also the bottom of the sea that spanned across North America. Now this is the part of the Herkimer Diamond formation that is similar to the way geodes are formed: organic material, plants and sea life would die and be buried under new layers of sedimentary stone. When these plants and other sea life would decompose under the rock, they release gases, and this gas is what formed the "pocket." Evidence of this organic, plant material succumbing to decomposition is clear when you see the black shiny flakes of Anthraxolite that surround or leak from these pockets. Anthraxolite is a carbon compound and by-product formed when organic material breaks down. So as the organic material decayed and broke down it became a gas, trapped below layers of sedimentary stone. Air creates its own pressure inside a substance, so the air pressure was carving out its own cavity from the inside out. These air pockets became the pockets we rockhounds discover as we crumble, break, and peel away layers of the dolostone. Over the course of 200-250 million years the layers of sedimentary rock increased and grew, and this increased the pressure and heat on the buried dolostone. Also inside each of these air pockets were various quartz and carbon elements and other compounds "feeling the heat" from being buried below layers of sedimentary rock. Under this pressure of the sedimentary layers of rock, and the ensuing heat, the quartz and other compounds inside these pockets began to transform themselves. Finally, over the course of 300 million years, the glaciers that sat atop Herkimer County began to melt, and washed away layers of the sedimentary rock, and allowed the compounds and elements inside these pockets to cool down and then crystallize. An important question to answer right now is "why are the Herkimer Diamonds double-terminated?" The answer is that quartz does not adhere to the dolostone, therefore the quartz trapped inside these air pockets did not attach to the surrounding matrix host stone. The process left the quartz crystals free to fully crystallize unattached and allowed both of the ends to grow into fully terminated points. Many Herkimer Diamonds are found as clusters attached to one another. They adhered to one another during their crystal growth formation, but again did not adhere to the dolostone interior of the air pocket. The value of Herkimer Diamonds is determined by size and their opacity or translucence. The larger and more translucent Herkimer Diamonds are worth more to a collector or jeweler than the smaller opaque specimens. Knowing the history and background of the Herkimer Diamond however lends a premium in our opinion when you are considering adding Herkimer Diamonds to your collection. They are not commercially mined due to various New York state laws limiting mining in the state, and most of Herkimer County is being used today by happy grazing cows, sugary apple orchards, tart cherry trees, farms of squash, cabbages and onions, and wine grapes. We have recently gained access to heretofore unmined and barren acres in the Herkimer County area on the same geologic slope and ledge as the traditional Herkimer Diamond mines.

Largest diamond in Angola, Africa: 404 carat diamond found by Lulo Diamond Project - TomoNews
 
01:40
ANGOLA, AFRICA — The largest diamond discovered in Angola, Africa was announced Monday, Feb. 15. The 404.2 carat gem was mined by Lulo Diamond Project, a partnership between Australia's Lucapa Diamond Company Limited; Endiama E.P., Angola's national diamond company; and private investor Rosas & Pétalas. According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the diamond, found in Angola, could be worth more than $20 million in Australian currency, or $14.3 million USD. And according to the announcement by Lucapa, New York-based diamond retailer Yehuda tested the new diamond's color and clarity and categorized it as a Type IIa stone, meaning it's virtually flawless. It is the largest found at the Lulo mine in Angola, where the project commenced in August 2015. The Lulo Diamond Project explores a 1,148 square-mile plot of land in central Angola and the area has so far produced more than 60 "large special diamonds," the company said. It is the 27th largest recorded diamond in the world, the first being a 3,106 carat gem, called the "Cullinan." It weighed in at 1.3 pounds and was discovered in South Africa in 1905. That stone was cut to adorn the royal scepter, one of Britain's crown jewels, and is on display at the Tower of London. The second largest weighed 1,111 carats and was found in November 2014 in Botswana. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

With shocking evidence now uncovered, Zimbabwe’'s diamond trade faces suspension. "We were told ‘here are the guns, sitting in the truck, do you want to stay?’" says Andrew Cranswick, CEO of the mining company who owns the rights to mine diamonds in Marange. After his company was evicted, the Marange fields were opened up to the people and tens of thousands of Zimbabweans came to dig, paying the police a commission. Yet the police didn'’t always play fair - "$15 million worth of diamonds were confiscated", says one former miner – and soon the police were replaced by Mugabe’s own military. "Mugabe needed a way to buy the loyalty of the army" says Ken Roth, "the military were ordered to kill". In the first week of November, helicopter gunships launched a massacre on the Marange diamond fields. Evidence has been collected of 200 deaths. Those who weren’'t killed were raped or crippled. "They told us if we wanted to go home we had to sleep with the men", says one woman, "the soldiers watched and laughed". Next month, the Kimberley process, the international body charged with stopping trade in conflict diamonds, will decide whether Zimbabwe should be suspended. Yet with many Western governments involved in Zimbabwe'’s diamond trade, a former delegate of the Kimberley process believes this deadly business may yet be protected.

But in Botswana, it’'s a different story. The diamond has transformed Botswana from one of the poorest countries in the world, to one of the most prosperous and stable countries in Africa. An inspiring initiative has seen Botswana’'s vast diamond reserves, worth about three billion US dollars a year, being used to share wealth throughout the nation. Trade Consultant Ntetleng Masisi says “they used diamonds to bring about health facilities, education and a markedly improved quality of life. "The earnings from our exports of diamonds have really done a lot for us.”" But Botswana’'s reliance on diamond revenue means that the whole of the country’'s future is now in the hands of the diamond dealers….

25 Things You Should Know About Blood Diamonds

Tweet this video! - http://clicktotweet.com/6Pl2d Although most of the products we buy have a sickening back story laced with exploitation, violence, and greed, there is unfortunately not much that can be done about it. At the very least we don't need to be ignorant. These are 25 things you should know about blood diamonds. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-things-you-should-know-about-blood-diamonds Here's a preview: Also known as conlifct diamonds, hot diamonds, and war diamonds, blood diamonds are mined in war zones and sold to finance insurgencies. These areas usually include central and west african countries Warlords use extreme violence in order to force the locals into extracting their diamonds For example, during the civil war in Sierra Leone a group known as the Revolutionary United Front killed, threatened, and even cut off the arms of people in the diamond villages until they took control of the mines Many times government officials get paid off to let diamonds through or they get smuggled accross borders into legitimate trading channels. In Sierra Leone 20,000 people were mutilated and millions fled the country According to National Geographic News blood diamonds are responsible for 4 millions deaths. The problem wasn't really made known to the public until Leonard DiCaprio starred in the movie Blood Diamond The Diamond Industry repsonded to the movie with successful PR campaigns -- people kept buying. Several years earlier in 2002 the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme was create to regulate diamond trading and prevent legitimate diamonds from entering the market It was envisioned by diamond industry and instated by the United Nations De Beers and the rest of the diamond industry now claim that 99.8% of diamonds are conflict free. These certifications are then attached and sealed along with the diamonds as they are exported How is this possible? The Kimberly Process relies on the hopelessly corrupt governments of diamond producing countries to check and certify their diamonds are legitimate. In 2006, however, the United Nations and the US government released reports showing that nearly $23 million of blood diamonds from the Ivory Coast were smuggled into Kimberly One of the founders of the Kimberly Process, Ian Smillie, even resigned from the group not long ago citing its ineffectiveness. This is not to say that the Diamond Trade is all bad. Legal diamonds promote development in underdeveloped nations. The Kimberly Process did, at least initially, managed to curb a significant amount of violence related to blood diamonds. So what can be done? As a consumer, not much. There really isn't any way to know where the diamond came from. Well, you could try synthetic diamonds. The natural diamond monopolies hate those and good ones are chemically indistinguishable. You could fly to Africa and make sure the diamonds are legit with your own two eyes. You could also just try to stay informed about how the things you buy everyday get onto store shelves through channels of violence and exploitation. At any rate, the diamond industry continues to grow every year For better or for worse this provides underdeveloped economies with jobs and corrupt political systems with money

Blood Diamonds and Religious War: Diamonds and Division

The Central African Republic is one of the poorest countries in the world, but it is also rich in natural resources. One of the official mining sectors has collapsed amid the country’s ongoing conflict, and now both sides are benefitting from the illicit trade of gold and diamonds. Clashes over control of the many mines have also created religious tension in places where there previously had been none. VICE News traveled to mines located in the heart of the Central African Republic to see how the battle over natural resources is playing out in one of the world’s most violent conflicts.

THE HISTORY OF DIAMOND MINING AND DIAMONDS IN SOUTH AFRICA The 1867 discovery of diamonds in the Cape Colony, South Africa, radically modified not only the world’s supply of diamonds but also the conception of them. As annual world diamond production increased more than tenfold in the following 10 years, a once extremely rare material became accessible to Western society with its growing wealth. Today South Africa maintains its position as a major diamond producer. The story of diamonds in South Africa begins between December 1866 and February 1867 when 15-year-old Erasmus Jacobs found a transparent rock on his father’s farm, on the south bank of the Orange River. Over the next few years, South Africa yielded more diamonds than India had in over 2,000 years. The first diamond discoveries in South Africa were alluvial. By 1869, diamonds were found far from any stream or river. First in yellow earth and below in hard rock called blue ground, later called kimberlite, after the mining town of Kimberley. In the 1870′s and 1880′s Kimberley, encompassing the mines that produced 95% of the world’s diamonds, was home to great wealth and fierce rivalries, most notably that between Cecil John Rhodes and Barney Barnato, English immigrants who consolidated early 31ft prospects into ever larger holdings and mining companies. In 1888, Rhodes prev Unlike the proverbial cat, one may expect the Premier Mine to enjoy only four lives. The first lasted from the discovery of the diamond pipe just before 1902 – and the formation of the Premier (Transvaal) Diamond Mining Company – until the outbreak of World War I when the mine was shut down and operated on a caretaker basis. By January of 1916 it was working again and production continued up to 1932 when diamond mining operations ceased due to the depressed state of the diamond industry. Working resumed in 1945, but its fourth life really began in 1979 with the opening up of the mine below the Gabbroe sill, a 70-meter geologic intrusion of barren rock which cuts right through the pipe some 400 meters below the surface. Production from this new source has not only given the mine its longest life, but one that should enable production to continue for another fifteen years. In the early years of its existence, the Premier Mine produced many large diamonds, including, of course the Cullinan in 1905, and since working was restarted in 1945 the mine has continued to yield some exceptional stones. One of the most exciting moments was early on Sunday, May 22nd, 1954, when a diamond measuring just under 51 mm long, just over 25 mm wide and 19 mm thick unexpectedly appeared on the grease tables at the recovery plant. It was immediately apparent to the officials present that this, later known as the Niarchos diamond (426.5ct), was an exceptional find.
Namibian Diamonds from Precious Earth Jewelry

When people think of diamonds poverty is not usually the first think that comes to mind. The reality is diamonds are mined in some of the poorest countries on earth. One might think the answer would be simply stop buying diamonds from continents like Africa based on the injustices of the past (and unfortunately ongoing in Zimbabwe) but this would only make things worse for those struggling to survive. At Precious Earth we believe the answer is to responsibly harness the economical potential of traceable diamonds and empower the local people through jobs and education in the territories, like Namibia, where diamonds are mined. Namibia Diamonds are the only diamonds that feature the Team Namibia* logo and come with a validation certificate. This assures you that your diamond is a natural, ethically sourced diamond that has been polished in the Namibian Diamond factory. We hold high hopes that this Namibian diamond cutting factory will soon create thousands of jobs and empower a generation of people. *Team Namibia is a monitoring body that endorses Namibian companies that offer socially responsible products and services. Namibian Diamonds follow a strict chain of warranties and are in full compliance with the Kimberely Process. Video Courtesy of Namibian Diamonds.

Africa's Diamond Mines and the Contradictions of Visual Anthropology

Africa's Diamond Mines and the Contradictions of Visual Anthropology Daniel Hoffman (University of Washington) Membership Lecture, The New Mexico History Museum Auditorium Thursday, November 4, 2010, 6:30--7:30 pm For Dr. Daniel Hoffman, the anthropologist with a camera, the diamond mines of West Africa present definite contradictions. Deep in the West African rainforest, mines on the Sierra Leone and Liberia border are politically volatile, dangerous landscapes. Yet the mines are also strangely beautiful, where the vibrant forest canopy, the hues of yellow mud, and the poetics of laboring bodies create striking visual portraits of postcolonial Africa. What does it mean to be a visual anthropologist today—simultaneously a witness, an archivist, and an artist, roles that are frequently contradictory and challenging to reconcile?

The Black Diamonds
 
02:12
I am making no claims to what these black shiny rocks are, so forgive me for making an educated guess. It's my own idea from my own research. I say they are black diamonds because this is the only ID I have for them. A buddy and I found these in the Columbia River. I took the time to research and have a Geologist do tests on these rocks and I stumped them. A jeweler here in Tri-Cities WA was amongst the folks who are stumped. And these black rocks were only on one section of this beach, we had to walk at least 50 ft down the beach to discover them. We, a buddy and I who are connected to the underground military base below Twin Sisters, found these rocks. I have had dreams of a tunnel and this same buddy of mine and four others of use-to-be-close friends have had the similar dream where we all see a large tunnel under the Columbia River, 50 or so feet below the river, around where the Cable Bridge sits. We all saw semi trucks and jeeps, I believe. I will have to contact them and see if they will give me a written account of what they saw for themselves. When I find interesting things, these ideas trigger past thoughts to remember who I AM now. Be safe and well.

SOUTH AFRICA: DIAMOND MINING EXPERTS CONFERENCE
 
02:30
English/Nat Mining experts from around the world have begun meeting in Pretoria for a conference which they hope will result in African governments agreeing to legislate against trade in "blood diamonds" which benefits wars and rebel groups in Africa. The three-day conference, is the last in a series of meetings held throughout the international diamond world. It coincides with an increase in a new world conscience in the diamond trade. The United Nations has already placed a ban on diamonds originating from war-torn Sierra Leone which find their way onto the world market through other countries. That country was represented by its Deputy Director of Mines Usman Boie Kamara who announced his country would soon implement its own measures against "conflict diamonds". SOUNDBITE: (English) "Within the next week or so we hope to have our own certification regime in place and we would then apply to the UN to lift the sanctions on the exportation of diamonds using this certification regime which we would then have in place." SUPERCAPTION: Deputy Director of Mines in Sierra Leone, Usman Boie Kamara SOUNDBITE: (English): "I am extremely confident that it will be achieved because we have all the role players in the diamond industry worldwide as well as all the governments of Africa and Southern Africa getting together to combat it with a common cause and that is to promote the use of diamonds for the prosperity and benefit of all the peoples of Africa."

ICP Asks Akon About Buying a Diamond Mine, SE4ALL About Ending Gas Flaring, Including in Nigeria
 
06:44
ICP Asks Akon Of Diamond Mine Purchase, He Replies on Reform, Yumkella Running By Matthew Russell Lee UNITED NATIONS, May 20 -- When the UN's “Sustainable Energy For All” endeavor held a public press conference during its nearly four day event on May 20, prominent on the podium was musician and business figure Akon, talking about African villages buying solar power systems from his enterprise, with a $1 billion line of credit, on the payment plan. Inner City Press asked Akon about having also bought a diamond mine -- was that also a social enterprise? Akon answered in that direction, saying he bought the mine in order to challenge or clean up the industry, citing blood diamonds. Video here. The answer is an evolution from what Akon said about the mine, and blood diamonds, back in 2007: "I don't even believe in conflict diamonds. That's just a movie. Think about it. Ain't nobody thought about nothing about no conflict diamonds until the movie came out. Where was all that shit before the movie? That's the problem with people - they believe everything they read or see on TV. It's no different from The Blair Witch Project. Everybody thought that was real. That campaign and marketing was incredible. After that, they're getting Oscars. Unless you go to Sierra Leone and see what's going down, don't believe everything you're reading or see on TV. Trust me." http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/akon-so-what-if-i-own-a-diamond-mine-436472.html There was a Sierra Leone connection at the press conference: SE4ALL chief Kandeh Yumkella, whom Inner City Press asked about the organization's involvement in the campaign to end gas flaring by 2030. Yumkella answered excitedly about Shell and Total and Statoil signing on. To a question on Sierra Leone, IRENA's Adnan Amin said while the question was about President Koroma, there was another Sierra Leonean in the room, but he'd only talk about one president at a time. On March 15 of this year, Yumkella wrote to UN staff: “A few months ago I informed the Secretary-General that I would like to step down as his Special Representative and CEO of Sustainable Energy for All as of July 2015. He has now graciously accepted my request and the announcement will be made soon. “It has not been an easy decision to end my 19-year career serving humanity under the auspices of the UN system, including as Director General of UNIDO. But I believe it is now time for me to go home to serve my people in Sierra Leone." We'll have more on this. Watch this site.
