Yet another method of preventing human rights activists from collecting accurate information on forced cotton laborers was witnessed in the fields this past weekend: Secret service employees ran ahead of activists and “advised” cotton pickers to keep silent.

Elena Urlaeva, the head of the Human Rights Alliance of Uzbekistan, experienced this new method first-hand during her monitoring activities of cotton fields near the town of Krasnogorsk in Tashkent province’s Parkentsky district on September 28.

PepsiCo is a major  Conflict Palm Oil laggard, dragging its feet, refusing to admit it even has a problem. With a whopping 457,200 metric tons of palm oil used annually in snacks like Cheetos and Lay's potato chips, PepsiCo has a huge impact on the planet, the forests, and the people and animals which call them home. 

Send your message here: Tell PepsiCo you won't have deforestation, extinction, or slavery in your home.

Daewoo International Corporation is unabashedly profiting from forced labor in Uzbekistan, where the government mobilizes more than a million men, women and children each year to harvest cotton. Eleven people died in the latest harvest, including Amirbek Rakhmatov, a 6-year-old boy who accompanied his mother to the field.

Daewoo must stop purchasing Uzbek cotton until the International Labor Organization can confirm the government of Uzbekistan has dismantled this forced labor system. Daewoo should use its decades-long relationship with the government to publically urge the end of this abominable practice.

Seed slavery is ethically important to address because it transforms the Earth family into corporate property. It is ecologically important because with seeds in the hands of five corporations, biodiversity disappears, and is replaced by monocultures of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). It is socially important because without seed sovereignty, there is no food sovereignty. After all, seeds are the first link in the food chain.

Police found 27 children and 38 adults living in catacomb-like cells, dug on eight levels under the home of the sect's founder. It is not clear how long the children were kept underground.

Shane says he was held captive and groomed to see all of us on the outside as pathetic, useless and stupid.
