Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung: Expose the "dark side" of the Galaxy

Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung: Expose the "dark side" of the Galaxy


Why this is important

Children as young as 7 are inhaling toxic dust that can lead to fatal lung disease -- to extract cobalt, a mineral used in rechargeable cell phone batteries. But with Samsung release of its latest cobalt-powered handset, we have a chance to get to the bottom of this tragic situation.

Samsung's financial results are down, and they desperately need their new Galaxy S7 to be a smash hit. It boasts the longest battery life ever -- yet the children in the Congo who may have helped create it will likely face an early death. So far Samsung refuses to cooperate to ensure that their cobalt supply chain is free of child labour.

Click below to add your name, and together we'll crash Samsung's party by releasing sharp parody ads in key global cities as the phone hits stores.
