De gemeente ligt aan diggelen
(especially of cloth) Badly torn
Her clothes were old and in tatters.
Badly damaged or completely spoiled
After the newspaper story appeared his reputation was in tatters.
Slavernij is volgens de christelijke code niet zondiger dan het dragen van mooie kleren,
terwijl een ander in flarden is, het eten van een betere maaltijd dan een buurman, of
het genieten van gemak en overvloed,
terwijl onze medemensen lijden en gebrek hebben.

1 The moment the penny fell down
IN SHORT: the Sanda Dia case
Sanda Dia, a 20-year old student from Edegem, was in his third year of civil engineering at the KU Leuven, when he wanted to join the student club Reuzegom. For this, he had to participate in an extreme hazing. A hazing that would eventually become his death.
On the second day, Sanda and two other shafts had to dig a hole in Vorselaar, where they then had to sit down. There, they got buckets of ice-cold water over them, had to eat all kinds of dirty things and had to drink a lot of fish sauce.
Finally, in the course of the evening, he was taken to hospital. But no more help was forthcoming and he died two days after the hazing.

When the judiciary itself is the cause of aberrations, as in the Jeffery Epstein affair.
The judiciary could have intervened correctly 15 years earlier instead of doing the ‘sweet deal’ with billionaire Jeffery Epstein, which allowed the event to run its course unchecked.

4 The Belgian colonial history
The details of the 19th-century colonial exploration and exploitation of the Congo under the infamous King Leopold II of Belgium were kept hidden.
On February 5, 1885, Belgian King Leopold II established the Congo Free State by brutally seizing the African landmass as his personal possession. Rather than control the Congo as a colony, as other European powers did throughout Africa, Leopold privately owned the region
Leopold II and the Congo Free State
Presenting himself as a philanthropist eager to bring the benefits of Christianity, Western civilization, and commerce to African natives—a guise that he perpetuated for many years—Leopold hosted an international conference of explorers and geographers at the royal palace in Brussels in 1876. Several years later he hired the explorer Henry Morton Stanley to be his man in Africa. For five years Stanley traveled up and down the immense waterways of the Congo River basin, setting up trading posts, building roads, and persuading local chiefs—almost all of them illiterate—to sign treaties with Leopold. The treaties, some of which appear to have been subsequently doctored to Leopold’s liking, were then put to use by the Belgian monarch.
His most important legacy, however, remains the human catastrophe that the rubber forced-labour system brought to the Congo – a heritage that continued to echo in that region more than a century after Leopold’s death.
5 Flawed regimes
I have believed in a lie for 40 years: I’ve probably been taken away from my family, kidnapped, taken against my parents’ will, says Rune Renato Hansen, who so far has thought he was found homeless on the street.
Imagine discovering that your surname, first name and date of birth are all lies? That your family is not your real family?
Hundreds of Argentineans born during the dictatorship of General Videla, from 1976 to 1983, have faced this horrifying discovery.
Hundreds of Chileans adopted abroad have learned that they were trafficked. Investigators believe thousands of children may have been taken from their parents during Chile’s dictatorship.
The little passbook is the only item Rune Renato Hansen has from Chile. Here is also the name of the orphanage, which has since been linked to thousands of illegal adoptions. Photo: Thomas Nielsen – TV2 EAST
Felipe Gomez Alonzo: Eight-year-old Guatemalan boy who died at US border had flu, autopsy shows
The United States is set to overhaul how it handles illegal migrants after a young boy and girl, both from Guatemala, died while in US custody in December.
Their deaths coincided with a spike in the number of young migrant families apprehended at the border. Many of them come from Guatemala.
To find out what is driving young families to the US, the BBC’s Patricia Sulbarán went back to the village of one of those children, Felipe Gomez Alonzo.
Felipe’s father took his son to the US-Mexico border after hearing rumours that parents and their children would be allowed to migrate to the US and escape the poverty in their homeland, the boy’s stepsister said.

If you take away extremes in bad human behaviour, you still need the human ability to deal with something in a meaningful way.
What is the right thing to do? (Harvard Professor Michael Sandel).
The House of Windsor, with gigantic castles and unimaginable domains, travelling all over the world and a life without restrictions.
You notice that they are still only human, despite their ‘Life of Privilege’.
They too have no better understanding of life to be an example to society.
It makes you think, it is strange considering the discrepancy with that of child labour, street children and all the pain for the haves not e.g. in point 6 above

Is this the most dangerous job in the world?
Inside a ship graveyard in Bangladesh
On the muddy shores of Bangladesh, the world’s old cargo ships and tankers are discarded and left for poorly paid workers to dismantle in shocking conditions.
Hundreds of cargo ships and tankers are discarded, pulled apart to have the steel recycled to build infrastructure across the country.
But as reporter Tim Noonan found out, it’s a task fraught with danger.
Falling metal debris, asbestos, amputation and death – it’s all in a day’s work for the men, and sometimes children, who work in the ship graveyards of Bangladesh. They dismantle retired ships to recycle the raw materials for the nation’s infrastructure. Reporter Tim Noonan got a rare look at what happens inside one of the yards, and the lack of safety for the workers.
And it’s not just adults putting their lives at risk for just 47 cents per hour – children are also commonly found working in these dangerous fields.
This story originally aired in 2013.
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.
In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls.

Whoever dislikes this video is a fool, obviously don’t care about these people that basically live hell whilst you’re at home stuffing faces, drinking and sleeping on a bed.
These kids want schools and want to work when they are older and actually get paid all the best to them over in Kenya.
