現在還有“賣豬仔”? Slavery is still in practice

April 11, 2011

前幾天,我們跟MaD Team的其中一位同事解釋甚麼叫“賣豬仔”,我們以為,這個詞語已是歷史中的生字。但原來人口販買,在今天仍然存在。CNN的“自由項目:結束現代奴隸制”指出,現時全球估計有10,000,000至30,000,000人,過著奴隸一般的生活。貧窮的人被騙到工廠、漁船、甚至妓寨,我們也可能在不知不覺間買了不公義的產品。

A few days ago, we explained the term “piglet selling” to one of our team members. We thought the term, historically used to describe human trafficking during the Gold Rush, was out. But we are appalled to learn that slavery is still in practice. According to the CNN Freedom Project, the estimated number of modern-day slaves is 10,000,000 to 30,000,000! Poor people are cheated and forced to work in Dickensian conditions in factories, on fishing boats and in brothels. Chances are we unknowingly have a share in this while we consume.
