Is it really worth having those diamonds when they have so much blood on them? Human beings are exploited on both ends of the diamond trade. From the poor miners in Africa to those people who are made to believe that their love could only proven by diamond. They probably do not know how much blood is on that diamond. And some, despite knowing, have simply become indifferent and cold, and therefore, in-human. We need to re-think if we really need diamonds - and for that matter, other excessive materialistic possessions - to feel happy about ourselves or express our love toward others? More regulations on diamond trade - to purchase only certified diamonds - would only inflate its demand and reinforce the monopoly of De Beers and its likes. "The Diamond Empire" is a documentary produced by Media Education Foundation in 1994.
