Walmart, Tesco, Aldi, Morrissons, Carrefour, Costco. What do they all have in common, apart from the fact that they are supermarkets? They all sell products that are produced under slavery to the people that shop there.

Human rights lack all over the world; an ideal we just aspire to, but never reach.

But, it’s time that the abuses of the supermarket chains in the western world own up to doing far more these days than just zero-hour contracts, or low pay, cheap-labor in their own countries. Now, they have to admit that they are playing a role in the slave trade and slavery. In a report carried out by the Guardian newspaper, it was revealed that a mainstay of the production pf shrimp was slavery. The six-month enquiry showed that workers in Asia are being forced into work for years on end with no pay, torture and sometimes resulting in death thrown in just in case it wasn’t enoughhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-06-17...permarkets I try to avoid these stores and buy from more local business

Yes it's a very good idea to vote with your wallet, not to mention the health benefits of locally produced organic food. beercheer.gif
