lyrics

brought to the shrine as a virgin
to be married to the gods
from then on she is a slave
raped frequently by the priests
brought to the mines
to work in the dark
they find themselves stuck in a dead-end tunnel of danger and despair
dancing with fake breasts and bells around his ankles
to satisfy his masters needs
influential men - playing with boys
when they feel their life is over they have on longer any reason to resist
it‘s just avoiding beatings until they die
hoping for the end
"An estimated 35.8 million men, women, and children around
the world are trapped in modern slavery today. Modern sla-
very involves one person possessing or controlling a person
in such a way as to significantly deprive that person of their
individual liberty, with the intention of exploiting that person
through their use, management, profit, transfer or disposal.
Modern slavery contributes to the production of at least 122 goods from 58 countries worldwide. The International LabourOrganization (ILO) estimates the illicit profits of forced labour
to be $US150 billion a year. From the Thai fisherman trawling fishmeal, to the Congolese boy mining diamonds, from the
Uzbek child picking cotton, to the Indian girl stitching foot-
balls, from the women sewing dresses, to the cocoa pod pickers, their forced labour is what we consume. Modern
slavery is big business. Acknowledging the problem, and ad-
vocating against it is not philanthropy
– it is our responsibility"
you may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know
