Human Slavery and Chocolate
This Halloween, when buying chocolate, keep in mind how your chocolate was harvested. It is not uncommon to use child labor, and is some cases slavery, to harvest chocolate in Africa. These farms supply cocoa to corporations such as Hershey's, Mars and Nestle...who clearly have no issue with human trafficking and slavery. If you are against these things then I suggest you vote with your dollars. For more information and for information on companies that do not support these heinous abuses go here
Here is another article written at the time, by a high school senior. That is also where I grabbed the above comic strip.
