Stop Blood Diamonds Organization
The Stop Blood Diamonds Campaign is in Full Force
If you have ever been involved as an activist, then you know that nothing positive really
happens until the grass roots movement emerges from nowhere, takes on an identity, builds momentum and creates a
synergistic effect that draws multitudes. The Blood Diamonds has taken on its identity, is rapidly building
momentum and we need you to join us as we create this synergistic effect that is drawing people from ass
nationalities, creeds, colors, languages and ethnos.
The focal point and driving force behind this drive to stop Blood Diamonds is none other than
the human rights organization, StopBloodDiamonds.Org. These folks have been instrumental in raising worldwide
awareness of this issue, which can best be described as some of the most horrifying human rights violations ever
What is Stop Blood Diamonds All About?
Stop Blood Diamonds is an international initiative birthed to help people, countries,
governments, jewelers and diamond traders to become more aware of the horrifying circumstances surrounding blood
diamonds. Until this issue is publicly addressed it will not change! We graciously thank all of the various
governments, people and companies who have said no to Blood Diamonds, but we still have a long way to go. The
sad fact remains that people are still being denied basic human rights and being imprisoned, enslaved and killed
in certain African countries over diamonds.
Yes there have been measures and sanctions instituted by the international community, however,
the blood diamond trade has not been totally stamped out. And until that time, we must spread the word, educate
and admonish others to join us in turning the tide.
Not quite up to date on the seriousness of Blood Diamonds and how lives, families and

For The Diamond Industry Only
Provide your customers with accurate information regarding your diamonds. Believe it or not,
there are still people out there who have not heard of blood diamonds. Some of them may have heard of blood
diamonds in passing but they do not know enough about them. What you can do as a member of Stop Blood Diamonds
is to empower your customers by providing them with the right information.
Let them know about the practices of diamond mining and trading. Let them know about the
measures set by the UN and individual countries. Yet, let them also know that these measures, though perfect in
theory, are not regularly and effective enforced.
This only means that up to a certain point, there is no sure way of knowing whether or not a
diamond is clean. This will emphasize the need for effective and continuous campaign against blood diamonds and
for measures to be strictly employed.
We also ask that, as a dedicated member of Stop Blood Diamonds, you renew your pledge to
campaign against blood diamonds every year. All over the world, efforts are being made to free our market of
blood diamonds. With a concerted effort, we hope to be able to eliminate these horrible things in a few
