Javier Bardem: Peace for Congo's Mothers

Video released: May 04, 2011

In a conversation in honor of Mother's Day, Javier Bardem discusses the world's most dangerous place for mothers and their daughters: the Congo. Armed militias in the Congo use rape as a weapon of war, in their fight to control the Congo's minerals. These minerals power our everyday electronics.
