This picture taken from the internet shows a police assault on child worker striking western clothing factory for wages and conditions in Bangladesh, 2011. Estimates of child workers are from 250 million to 500 million, most in brutal and dangerous conditions, all by well-dressed manicured employers.
Well this is the modern slavery we all are well aware of, we know about that on news (except if you live in ridiculous countries with corrupt media), through internet, TV, newspapers...and even when we go shopping and read: "Made in Bangladesh", "Made in Vietnam", "Made in Indonesia", "Made in China".
In fact we all know that who produced those products from western multinational enterprises were precarious workers, overexploited, that won little incomes and have no rights as payment of extra hours of work...or even payment, the right of doing strikes...in those countries not even exists worker unions!
And most shocking some of that workers, besides being modern slaves are kids too...
And we all still paying lots amounts of money for our expensive tenis Nike, Adidas or Converse, etc "made in China" label.
At the same time in western we wonder why people are unemployed and profitable entreprises and factories closed...and moved out to China,Bangladesh, Indonesia and so...
So we know what is going on, we accept, we pretend it's nothing...and feed the system
It's really annoying to me to go shopping for clothes or shoes and read everywhere: "Made in China", "Made in Bangladesh", "Made in Indonesia", not because I think those people from those countries shouldn't have a work but because I know they are working as modern slaves which besides being inhuman and atrocious it's unfair competition to entreprises in the west that pay reasonable incomes to their workers and respect their rights, that pay taxes to the state and respect the environmental standards...which makes everything more expensive to buy from western manufacturer based in developed countries than the cheap products made in underdeveloped countries!
Not counting with the fact that a Converse shoe made in United Kingdom is as expensive as one made in China, it's the label you pay...and that way the profitables of the entreprise are much much higher than used to be...
And guess whose causing this whole process: modern slavery, huge multinational profits, closure of factories in our countries and our own unemployment...US!
YES WE ARE THE SYSTEM, AND ONLY WE CAN DISMANTLE IT!
LET'S DO IT!
RAGE AGAINST THE SYSTEM!
