Put a stop to modern day slavery

I visited London on Anti-Slavery Day, the 18th of October. Walking through Trafalgar Square, I came across a stall by the Slavery-Free London campaign and picked up various leaflets.

Human trafficking sculpture in Trafalgar Square.

They highlight that people are trafficked to the UK and forced to work in prostitution, domestic work, cleaning,and food industry.

Leaflet on responsible purchasing.

Information shared concern about the thousands of children trafficked into cocoa plantations in the Ivory Coast, and the West Africa Coast, where 75% of the world's cocoa comes from.

If you buy chocolate it is worth putting pressure on all producers to supply fairtrade chocolate as this can discourage the use of child labour.
