The modern slavery of children - Heartbreaking !
19 September 2011 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

This documentary is very important and obviously done by brave people. People who care enough to tackle this extremely heartbreaking issue; the trafficking of children in the African cocoa industry.

It is heartbreaking and beyond belief to realize that the value of a human life, a child's life to be exact in this case, is considered so low that it can be bought and sold for a few euros to fulfill the wants and longings of the western world for cheap chocolate, garments, sex etc... This film is about the chocolate industry but every westerner should know that trafficking of children is a fact in many other businesses as well. How come that we who live in the west don't rise up to this travesty? Why are we constantly closing our eyes in complacency to this bitter ugliness in human nature? I am so sad after watching this excellent film that my heart hurts...

Please watch this film, if you get the chance, and recommend it to your friends and family!!!
