Child Slavery Today On Twitter

I found a couple of tweets today that linked to stories about child labor and trafficking in Africa. They are just two more pieces of evidence that indicate the problem is pervasive and widespread.

@theirc : IRC’s Emily Holland story/photos on Huffington Post: fighting child labor and trafficking in Liberia http://twurl.nl/ydehxh

Excerpt: In Liberia, it is common for children to be illegally adopted and bought and sold for forced labor and sexual exploitation. Children are trafficked for other dark purposes, including ritual killing.

@rekouche : The exploitation of Africa’s land and people. Firestone used child labor illegally for years, other corp. atrocities: http://bit.ly/aSTAP

Excerpt: The corporations use the labor and land, the people pay the price. It is absolutely modern day slavery.
