9 jul 2023

It’s April 23rd 2013, a busy commercial building in Dhaka, Bangladesh, towers over thousands of workers, many of them children. As they toil away in a cramped sweatshop the force of the eight-storey building collapses on to them, killing more than a 1,000 people and permanently disfiguring a further 2,500. It emerges that this building had been condemned and not fit for purpose, yet many workers were caged for 14-hours a day with no escape.This was not just an unfortunate circumstance but one that could easily have been prevented.
Through first-hand eyewitness accounts we will investigate the cause of the collapse and reveal how major international brands have ignored the warnings by continuing to use these unsafe buildings and put profit ahead of safety.

Beyond the crumbling walls of sweatshops, we expose the true cost of fashion, as two Bangladeshi women gets hired at the capital’s fashion factories bringing hidden cameras that will document horrible working conditions, child labour, and verbal and physical abuse, revealing that the sweatshop tragic catastrophe was far from unexpected.

Australia’s Dirty Secret – Exploring offenses practiced by popular media, big business, police forces and Governments helping the Australian 225 year campaign of genocide continue against Aboriginal Australians.

Australia’s Dirty Secret (2013)
Director: Alan Lowery, John Pilger
Writers: John Pilger
Stars: John Pilger, Jon Altman, Pat Anderson
Genre: Documentary, History, News
Country: United Kingdom, Australia
Language: English
Also Known As: Utopia
Release Date: October 2013 (United Kingdom)

Synopsis:
An epic film in its production, scope and revelations, UTOPIA reveals that apartheid is deep within Australia’s past and present and that Aboriginal people are still living in abject poverty and Third World conditions, with a low life expectancy and disproportionately high rate of deaths in police custody.

Reviews:
“A good documentary should derail your entire day, unless you had planned ahead to watch it, in which case you are one together human being. Enough fluff, this is a very good, and extraordinarily surprising story to see for a Canadian who already feels that human rights are not shared equally in this world. I was planning to sit around, and watch network crap until I just started watching this to see if I could watch it later, and I was immediately hooked. The first thing shown to you is a 70’s era anchorman talking about the plan of sitting ministers to simply round up people for no reason, and move them away, then taint their drinking water to sterilize them in a “Humane” manner. Yes hooked I was, so I stayed to the end, and learned a lot that I thought I knew, but even I had thought that these things had stopped, and that things in “1st” world countries was getting better in how we were treating one another. Just shows how deluded we all are. I Enjoyed the no holds bared journalism from John Pilger, who has been trying to get people to pay attention to this issue for almost 30 years. Just because their ancestors roamed the land like the herds they followed does not mean they did not own it like all men(at least that is my take). If the act of observation changes the observed, then could not the aboriginal peoples say that by observing nature they shaped it?”

World’s Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in Malawi (2018)

Deadliest Roads – Nicaragua:

• Deadliest Roads |…

The end of November in Malawi means the abrupt arrival of the rainy season. This does not bode well for Gray, a ‘bush taxi’ driver in this poverty-stricken country, where public transport is already practically nonexistent. Gray knows the rain will cause great trouble and isolation for the remote provinces, so he does what he can to help with his small truck.

Throughout the journey, his passengers are faced with an array of obstacles. Enduring the bumpy ride in the back of Gray’s truck and sleeping in a game reserve surrounded by lions and elephants are just some of the challenges they will face.

Meanwhile, when a child falls ill in Malawi, a choice must be made between walking 40km to the nearest free health clinic (which often lacks even the most basic resources), or handing their child over to the spirit of ‘Vimbuzu’…

In het rokerige struikgewas van de Boliviaanse jungle verzamelt een familie de rottende schelpen van reusachtige amandelbomen. Met hun eigen handen extraheren ze de noten die de amandelen bevatten, bestemd voor gastronomische winkels over de hele wereld. Edgar moet ze zo snel mogelijk in zijn oude vrachtwagen naar een verwerkingsbedrijf vervoeren. Net als hij heeft Ramiro nog een van de geroofde schatten van het bos bij zich: hout. Het pad zou een gezonde wandeling kunnen zijn, maar in Bolivia verstoort de voortdurende afslachting van de jungle het ecosysteem en creëert ongekende klimatologische onevenwichtigheden. Uitzonderlijke regenval verrast de twee coureurs en de rivieren van de Amazone zetten miljoenen hectaren onder water. De hoofdweg naar de hoofdstad La Paz staat onder water. In een paar dagen tijd is het land in tweeën gedeeld en worden meer dan 100.000 mensen getroffen.

World’s Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in Mozambique (2017)

Deadliest Roads – All Episodes:

• Deadliest Roads |…

For Bassunga and his men, the tree-lined road is full of obstacles. Each day, at the wheel of his old van, him and his co-workers take on the forest. Without any safety protection, they cut down around twenty trees every few minutes for meagre wages. This activity is completely illegal in Mozambique but brings happiness to the traffickers who then send the wood to China where the demand is huge. For the travelers however, the roads of Mozambique quickly transform into hell.

The night’s heavy rainfall makes their departure almost impossible but they don’t have a choice. The van must be loaded, if not, the day will be lost for Johnny. Between the impassable ruts and the traps set by the inhabitants, the 100km long trail will take on the allure of an odyssey.

World’s Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in Katanga, Congo in 2015

Deadliest Roads – Benin:

• Deadliest Roads |…

In Katanga many people are waiting for a train named after a bird, the “Swallow”. More than 2000 people, three times the train’s capacity, are squeezing in the carriages. Conditions are precarious in the “Swallow”, which crosses the whole country in more than a week, stopping in several villages. But 1600km are difficult for this 50 year old bird. The rails aren’t well maintained, accidents are frequent and the journey is risky especially for those who choose to travel on the top of the train.

The way isn’t easier by car, by bike or on foot. Road 1, the longest road in the country is often unusable during rainy season. Some sellers have bicycles loaded with their goods, but it’s impossible to pedal in sand so they have to push them all the way through.

Travelling seems a real nightmare in RDC, but delays and breakdowns are a good thing for some, especially merchants who take advantage of the several stops to sell their products.

Zo komen de armste gezinnen daar op de fiets of op de motor voedsel zoeken. Deze veroordeelden van de weg vervoeren soms meerdere dagen tot 250 kilo aan goederen, zonder zich zorgen te maken over de gevaren. Zonder ooit op te geven, worden deze reizigers bijna allemaal als helden beschouwd omdat “hij die niet reist, de waarde van mannen niet kent”, aldus de Congolezen.

Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte is waging a brutal war on drugs. Thousands of people have already died at the hands of the police, including children.

Could anti-slavery efforts in Ghana be doing more harm than good to local communities? #BBCAfricaEye goes undercover to investigate one of the world’s leading anti-slavery organisations and their West African operations.

On 6 September 2022, in northern Ghana, four children were taken, at gunpoint, from their home in the middle of the night.

They were brought to a hotel, photographed, washed and fed. At sunrise, they were relocated to a shelter. Their families were left in the dark as to where and why.

For the American charity coordinating the raid, it was a successful mission to rescue child slaves.

For the families, it felt like a kidnapping leaving them bewildered and traumatised.

What really happened to these children?

With a trail of WhatsApp messages, secret filming, and a journey to some of the remotest areas of Ghana, Africa Eye brings you the story of what happens when good intentions go horribly wrong.
