Oppression as History

END_IT_logo_reverseThere are persons who think that slavery is a distant memory, an ugly part of world history that need not be looked again and certainly not talked about.  It is easy to place a record of oppression in a book and close it.  It is better to open our eyes and see the stories of oppression that are among us.

You don’t have to blink before you realize that oppression is not history.  It is always present and among us.  I saw this story when I opened my web browser of Burmese adults as well as children being sold into slavery and forced to work in factories.  Be careful not to lick your fingers as there are some popular restaurants that benefit from it.  To read the full story, click here.
