The Digital Divide or the Digital Dump

The Digital Dump is the story of the illegal and immoral international electronics waste trade seen through the lens of one African country. Shot in Lagos Nigeria for the Basel Action Network, the 23 minute documentary looks at the environmental and social impact the disposal of used and outdated electronics are having once shipped from the rich to the poorer countries of the world for alleged re-use.

Should I say that every country should at least have a starting point? or? but definitely, the starting point should not be through waste product importation.

Can the Digital Divide be actually bridged by starting with a Digital Dump?
