Child Slave Labour in NATO’s Afghanistan – English

And to cap it all, we now have UN reports of slave labour. And child labour. Well actually forced child labour…or to be more exact, child slave labour. In Afghanistan, under NATO’s nose.The latest report “Buried in Bricks: Rapid Assessment of Bonded Labour in Afghan Brick Kilns” reveals that most workers in the brick kilns in Afghanistan are bonded child labourers, in which children from bonded families are tied to a kiln to work for free to pay off their families’ debts, in many cases, debts contracted to buy food to stay alive.The UNO claims: “Article 49 of the Afghan Constitution prohibits bonded labour while the Afghan Government has also ratified ILO Convention 182, which came to force in Afghanistan last year and identifies bonded labour as one of the worst forms of child labour”. Right, but let us be honest, where NATO is involved, the law doesn’t really count for that much, does it?”We will strafe the Libyan water supply in mid-Summer to break their backs,” as in imposing a no-fly zone. Eh, what?Timothy Bancroft-HincheyPravda.Ru
