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