Cambridge Dictionary

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.

$ettled (2022) Not all pictures tell a thousand words.
This one tells so many more. We’ll never know for sure, but it’s also probably worth about $20 million. That’s the reported price Prince Andrew will pay Virginia Guiffre to settle a very disturbing legal case against him. She says when she was 17 she was trafficked to the Prince by the paedophile businessman Jeffrey Epstein, ably assisted by his sex-offender partner, Ghislaine Maxwell. Despite that photo, Andrew denies ever meeting, let alone having sex with Ms Guiffre, but he’s been so discredited, these days it’s difficult to believe anything the disgraced royal says.

he story of Gordon.

Gordon also known as “whipped peter” was a black slave in America who escaped from a Louisiana plantation in March 1863 after he was nearly whipped to death.

The image of Gordon’s scarred back from whipping remains one of the most visually arresting depictions of slavery. The photograph opened the eyes of millions of people to the horrors of the slave trade in the Southern United States.
The photo was famously known as the scourged back, it became one of the most widely circulated photos of the abolitionist movement during the American Civil War and remains one of the most famous photos of that era.

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.

Is poverty raising a generation of children for sale in India?
In the world’s largest democracy, India, millions of vulnerable children are bought and sold, given only what they need to survive another day. Throughout Indian society, the mechanisms of bonded slave labor are insidious, powerful and nearly impossible to escape for children who have become trapped in a system driven by profits. Indian director, Pankaj Johar, looks behind the overwhelming statistics – revealing how a lack of education and persistent poverty provides a breeding ground for modern slavery.

17 Most Dangerous Ways To School | NEPAL | Free Documentary

6 sep. 2015

Those who attend school in the mountain village of Kumpur, walk across the mountains of the highest situated country on earth. Nearly half of Nepals lies more than 4 000 Meters above sea level. Today it`´s normal that the kids go to school in the valley, but just 50 years ago the village was completely self sufficient. Only if there was a lack of salt would someone twice a year hard off to refill the stock. Today the children go to the city almost on a daily basis and are immediately forced to cross the dangerous river. A village in distress is left behind. The village community Kumpur is spread across 18 farms on the Dhap Mountain. Their families live in a very remote area.
These families have lived on their land now for thousands of years herding their life-sustaining cattle without electricity, running water or contact to the outside world. Although they constantly ask themselves if the promise of an education justifies the danger of the path involved, they send their children day after day to school.
