Before I start, I am against replica, fake whatever you wanna call them handbags. I own two that were both gifts which I have explained in other posts. That said, why is it that when people here mention replicas, automatically funding terrorism comes up? Is there an article or information on this? Can someone post a link to it so I can settle an argument with my sister in law? I've searched and can't find anything. My sister in law is a vegan, very politically correct and also a hypocrit. She hates my LV's because of the leather and the animals lives it took to make them...I'm just searching for information on how replica handbags are tied to terrorism to prove a point to her. She condems my handbags but loves her huge shiny diamond and drinks a ton of coffee a day...do you know how many HUMAN BEINGS it kills to mine just a single carat of diamond...or how many men, women and children are beaten, enslaved and worked to death in Columbia and Africa picking beans? http://web.amnesty.org/pages/ec_kimberley_process As of 2006, for each rough carat mined, 7-15 men and children are killed. Those who refuse to work in the mines have their arms cut off. My diamond is a Canadian Mined Diamond, no one died for it. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
