VIOLENCES FAITES AUX FEMMES OEUVRANT DANS LES CARRIERES MINIERES EN RDC(suite)

1) Que l’Etat congolais crée une nouvelle technique pour extraire et travailler les minerais (installations des usines appropriées pour chaque échantillon.
2) Recruter les hommes qui sont encore jeunes et non les personnes trop âgées pour exercer ces lourds travaux.
3) Que les sociétés minières payent un salaire décent à ses agents.
4) Que l’Etat soit le seul fournisseur de minerais auprès des investisseurs en vue de tirer le profit en faveur de tous les congolais (voir art 16 de la constitution qui stipule :
Nul ne peut être tenu en esclavage ni dans une condition analogue, ni être soumis en un traitement cruel, inhumain ou dégradant.

English translation by PulseWire member Aurore

1)The Congolese State should create new technical tools to extract and work on the minerals – and install factories designed especially for each of them
2)It should recruit young men and not elderly who cannot carry those tasks
3)The mineral industry should pay its employees decently
4)The State should be the only mineral provider to investors so that benefits can be shared among all Congolese (Art. 16 of our Constitution states: No one may be held in slavery or in a similar condition, no one may be subject to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment.)

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Bonsoir Rosalie!
Je suis traductrice volontaire pour World Pulse, et j'ai traduit votre article en anglais pour que plus de membres World Pulse puissent le lire. Merci pour avoir partagé ces idées sur la politique minière de la RDC. N'hésitez pas à publier plus d'articles sur ce sujet, c'est essentiel car le monde entier bénéficie des minerais africains et nous avons besoin d'être informé des conditions de vie des travailleurs et des travailleuses.
Merci encore et bon courage pour vos prochains articles,
Chaleureusement
