SLAVERY: A GLOBAL INVESTIGATION
BABYLON OBSERVER VIDEO REVIEW 
WWW, April 2008 - The makers of this documentary have traveled over several different continents in search for the most raw form of slavery: forced labor by people being held captive. 

Slavery has many forms, and Babylon is specialized in each and every one of them. From the subtle forms of mental slavery of the sheeple to the most raw type: forced labor by people who are held captive under the most terrible conditions. 

This documentary deals with that last form. It's a fate that threatens the lifes of millions of people, especially children. It's a fate that has to do directly with an economical and political "development" called "globalization".

In fact, "globalization" and "slavery" are connected like Bonnie and Clyde. Those who have heard Reggae Music, will know how true this is as the Movement of Rastafari has been instrumental in pointing out to this historical fact.

The video takes us to several parts of the planet, and also shows us things and places that have to do with the colonial slavery that helped build the "New World" after Christopher Columbus "discovered" it.

We're taken to plantations, we see the wounds on the bodies of young men who had just recently been set free out of slavery after working on Cacao-plantations in Africa's Ivory Coast sometimes for well over 5 years. We find out, that the average price of a young boy is around 20 British pounds and we even go to the market place and see this transaction.

There has obviously been contact with the United Nations during the process of producing the documentary. The UN and globalization itself aren't identified as the culprits, but these world organizations responsible for globalization (like the World Bank) are being criticized for the things they do.

An idea of the World Bank is to drop guaranteed prices for Cacao, making sure that farmers get less while the consumers in the west pay more. And so, farmers are being held under an economic form of slavery themselves, as they will not get the money they need to pay their workers.

India is visited and we witness a raid on a place where carpets for export are produced by little children. Children are stolen, kidnapped, parents don't know where they are and hope that these raids may bring back their children to the surface. 

The video also takes us straight to the "Free World" and "discovers"  how slavery is very much alive today as well, even though it's often said how slavery is abolished. People working for the World Bank themselves turn out to have slaves working in their homes, diplomats and members of royal families are doing the very same thing.

As said, the documentary doesn't point out to globalization and the United Nations as major -and conscious- culprits of the contemporary forms of slavery it exposes, unfortunately. 

The makers have extensively interviewed a professor from a United Nations work group on contemporary slavery. This professor boldly states that the UN and multinationals will "end slavery" when the "consumers" "demand" it. 

Towards the end, there's even a visit to Brazil where people are working under the most terrible conditions, but (quote) "it's not slavery"...

However, all the information necessary to connect these dots are provided. The result is an impressive documentary that definitely sheds light on one of the most raw forms of slavery.
