March 2nd is the deadline for comments to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the rules it will enact to carry out the Dodd-Frank act.

The SEC has a chance to really reduce how much "Blood Gold" winds up in our jewelry and electronics. Right now, gold mining, especially around the Republicc of Congo finances war, murder and rape.

Learn more, and tell the SEC what you think today at http://sec.earthworksaction.org
