Nintendo’s old mistake: Staying silent

Metro - For the last couple of weeks the internet has been drowning in doom and gloom stories about Nintendo and the Wii U. Most of which managed to be published before anyone actually had any real sales figures to discuss. But dissing Nintendo gets page views and some gamers seem to have an insatiable need to hear that the company’s demise is nigh. (Culture, Nintendo)

Help Correct Nintendo and make gaming Controversy Free
"Nintendo has been a leader in the gaming world, but it is failing miserably on the problem of conflict minerals mined with slave labor and violence in the African Congo.

Armed groups round up villagers at gunpoint and force adults and children to dig for minerals used in electronics, from your cell phone to your gaming console.

While other big companies like HP, Apple and Microsoft have taken steps to make their products conflict-free, Nintendo has been ranked dead last in the industry with a score of zero in a report by the anti-genocide group, the Enough Project.

Tell Nintendo: Slavery is not a game. They need to take the first step towards making their products free of 'conflict minerals' mined with slavery by auditing their supply chain and making the information public."
