"Chocolate's Child Slaves" - The CNN Freedom Project
Early last year, CNN started a project that takes a hard look into the reality of slavery in today's world. The CNN Freedom Project: Ending Modern-Day Slavery investigates all types of human trafficking occurring around the world from the sex trade to forced labor. Most recently, it has turned its focus on the issue of child slavery in the cocoa industry. Their recent documentary, "Chocolate's Child Slaves" aired this past Friday, Jan 20th. Below are some clips as well as other CNN videos relating to the topic...
