You may think that forced labour in cotton fields has been consigned to the history books, a relic of the transatlantic slave trade.

But in Uzbekistan over one million men, women and children are forced to pick cotton in conditions of slavery during the annual harvest.

Pakistan har över 2 miljoner slavar. Bara Indien och Kina har fler slavar av världens länder. Sammanlagt finns det fortfarande runt 30 miljoner människor globalt som lever som slavar 2014.

- Intressant att notera är att det idag finns fler slavar än någonsin tidigare i historien...

Slavery and the Qatar 2022 World Cup

There are an estimated 30 million slaves in the world today, more than at any other time in history. In case you missed it, earlier this month Real Clear World ran a profile of what slave labor looks like in Pakistan today. 

There are 1.8 million “debt laborers” in the country, and 2.2 million slaves over all (only India and China have more). The debt laborers are kept under the thumb of landlords who sell them back and forth and cook up ways of keeping them in bondage:
“Usually we remain in debt because we take amounts from them [the landlords] for feeding our children and other day to day expenses,” he says, sitting outside his home, a mud hut sandwiched between an irrigation channel and the road. Nanji’s only contact with the landlord is through the farm manager.

Money rarely changes hands between landlord and tenants. Instead all transactions are recorded in a register maintained by the landlord. Each harvest is meant to pay off part of the debt, but costs—many of which the landlord is meant to bear himself under the few laws that are meant to offer protection to laborers in Pakistan—are added to the debt with interest.

“The actual thing that is keeping people in bondage is the manipulation of the records. The “hari” is illiterate and uneducated and doesn’t know how to keep the records,” explained Ghulam Hyder, director of the Green Rural Development organization, a Sindh-based group working with bonded laborers, using the Sindhi term for tenant...

Americans are tempted to see this a third world problem, or as a problem “over there,” but that’s also wrong. On the one hand, a lot of products made by slave workers overseas find their way into our stores and markets.

A former WRM researcher Ben Skinner has detailed instances of this at length, both in his book on modern slavery (“A Crime So Monstrous”) and subsequently. Here, for example, we discuss his research into the debt bondage and abuse behind the palm oil industry.

The role slavery and death plays in the global shrimp trade made news recently. Moreover, we have slaves right here. The same report we quoted above found 60,000 slaves right here in the U.S.

  1. Över 1 000 barn insjuknade i okänt virus i USA

    1 300 barn från tio delstater i östra och centrala USA har insjuknat i ett sällsynt virus. Många har skickats till sjukhus och befinner sig på akuten.

    Läkarna har ännu inte identifierat virusets stam. Sjukdomen påminner om en kraftig förkylning med snuva, hosta och andningsproblem.

    Enligt läkarnas besked kan det nya viruset bli ett nationellt hälsoproblem. Största delen av barnen kommer från delstaten Kansas.
