Free The Slaves

I got a comment today on this posting from Jacob Patten of "Free the Slaves" they're organising a campaign to stop US Tax dollars going to firms that use slave labour including in Iraq. Here's one of their resources:


"Secretary Rumsfeld, my tax dollars should not fund human trafficking in Iraq.

While our troops risk their lives for Operation Iraqi Freedom, some private businesses, under contract to the Defense Department, are engaged in human trafficking. "

You can send an email to Rumsfeld using the text above from warslavery.org's site here.

I would ask my American readers in particular to please take a minute to do so. I'll do a lenghtier posting on this sorely neglected topic at the weekend.
