Modern Slavery is Alive and Thrivingin India, Say Rescued Bonded Labourers

Sumedha Pal, NewsClick, March 02, 2019 



“I wasbeaten up, abused and forced to pick up faeces and excreta despite being hiredto do construction work".  


What ismodern slavery?



Slaverydid not end with abolition in the 19th century. Instead, it changed its formsand continues to harm people in every country in the world. Whether they arewomen forced into prostitution, men forced to work in agriculture orconstruction, children in sweatshops or girls forced to marry older men, theirlives are controlled by their exploiters, they no longer have a free choice andthey have to do as they’re told. They are in slavery.


Slavery is Not a Thing of the Past, It Still ExistsToday Affecting Millions

Shannon Scribner,IPS, February 28, 2019 



Vulnerable people onthe move face massive risks and uncertainty to find safety and opportunity forthemselves and their families. Unfortunately, in many cases they are taken advantageof and their rights ignored, forced to work in terrible conditions for little,or in some cases, no money.  




With Regards and InSolidarity

My final words of advice to you are educate, agitate and organize; have faith in yourself. With justice on our side I do not see how we can lose our battle. The battle to me is a matter of joy. The battle is in the fullest sense spiritual. There is nothing material or social in it. For ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is battle for freedom. It is the battle of reclamation of human personality.
