“This is one of the biggest questions of justice” –

the chocolate industry etc cited below – “working for nothing” – according to Harvard professor Michael Sandel (minute 11:15) in his Talk to Al Jazeera

India has a reported 18 million slaves working in awful conditions

Our love of chocolate drives a slave trade in the Ivory Coast

Child Labour: the dark truth behind chocolate production

One of the darkest secrets

The Dark Side of chocolate: child slaves and child trafficing in the chocolate industry for harvesting cocoa bones.

Undercover in a Bangladesh clothing factory

The lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

Many of the clothes sold in American stores come from factories in Bangladesh, which has a history of workplace disasters. Following the factory collapse last month that killed over 1,000 people, Holly Williams went undercover to see what the conditions are really like.

Qatar World Cup 2022

Dying for the World Cup. Qatar World Cup Costs 6,500 Workers Their Lives. The urgly side of the beautiful game.
Trapped in Slave-like conditions.

Shipbreaking Yards

It’s one of the most jaw-dropping sights of the modern world. For as far as the eye can see, along a stretch of coastline in Bangladesh, hundreds of mammoth supertankers lie beached on the sand. This is where the world’s ships come to die. Tim joins the thousands of workers, some of them children, who are paid just 47 cents a day to break up these rusting giants with their bare hands.

Rosa Parks 1955

Civil rights activist Rosa Parks (February 4, 1913 to October 24, 2005) refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a segregated Montgomery, Alabama bus, which spurred on the 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott that helped launch nationwide efforts to end segregation of public facilities.

The darker side of Residential Schools

Residential schools “inflicted profound injustices” on Aboriginal people. “The children who attended residential schools were treated as if they were offenders and were at risk of being physically and sexually abused,” the TRC says. (TRC = Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada)

When they complained of abuse, the students were often ignored.
Years later, when they launched civil lawsuits, they found the legal system was stacked against them “in a way that often re-victimized the survivors.”

Ireland’s Magdalene Laundries

Tuam, a quiet town in the west of Ireland. Tuam, a name that traumatised the whole of Ireland in the spring of 2014, when an unimaginable story was revealed. A hidden mass grave containing the remains of some 800 children was discovered on the former grounds of a home for single mothers, a hell on earth where children died from ill treatment, and were shamefully buried in secret and forgotten. Up until the 1990s, dozens of these detention centres were run by religious orders, but the country is still reluctant to confront the ghosts of its past.

——

Serious war crimes

A culture of secrecy, fabrication and deceit has cast a heavy shadow over the legacy of the Australian special forces deployment in Afghanistan.

The Brereton report into alleged war crimes by Australian special forces in Afghanistan has found credible evidence that Australian SAS soldiers were involved in the murder of 39 Afghan civilians. The alleged incidents have been described as a ‘disgraceful and a profound betrayal of the Australian defence force’, and include evidence that junior soldiers were coerced to execute prisoners to achieve their first kill in a process known as ‘blooding’.

Sanda Dia

Sanda was a young civil engineering student at the KU Leuven who wanted to join a student association in Belgium, he was subjected to several trials like drinking litters of alcohol and fish oil, eating living mice, eels and fishes. The 17 perpetrators have tried to hide what happened, have deleted all the messages and every proof of what happened. The members of the student association only had to do some community service and write an essay on their actions.
When a student dies due to other students, writing a paper is out of proportion!

These are just a few of the topics of a series listed in the web page “An Inconvenient Truth” under this menu “Preface”

More than half of the 45 million subjected to forced and cheap labour are in five countries – India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan – but the issues go much further

Amidou Yeo, 15, and his dad Kregapou, work on a cocoa plantation to meet our chocolate needs.

Using your smartphone or tablet, enjoying a chocolate bar, picking up ­charcoal for the BBQ or posing with your new fake designer handbag.

They are all part of life’s pleasures in technology-savvy 21st century Britain.

But our ongoing desire for cheap consumer goods could also be fuelling the misery of modern-day slavery and forced labour, which is thriving around the world.

A staggering 45 million adults and children are subjected to forced and cheap labour according to new statistics from the Global Slavery Index. More than half of those are in just five countries – India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan.

Governments and many organisations are involved in trying to stamp out the evil trade. But around the world, there are still victims forced to work for a pittance or no money at all under threats of abuse and mistreatment.

Yet there are still ways you can enjoy the luxuries you have become used to with a clear conscience.

Pope Francis shaken by ANAK-TNK street children

Pope Francis surprise visit at TNK foundation – January 16, 2015 Youth encounter Manila, testimony of TNK kids and tears of Glyzelle – January 18

Below is the emotional text read by a 12 years old girl to the Pope in the last link, when she starts crying.

“My name is Glyzelle Iris Palomar. I am 12 years old. I live in ANAK-Tnk foundation.

There are many childen neglected by their own Parents. There are also many who became victims and many terrible things happened to them like drugs or prostitution.

Why is God allowing such things… even if the children did nothing wrong?

And why are there only very few people helping us?”
