There was a time in America, 150 years ago -- on September 22, 1862 to be exact -- when it was chic to have a slave serving your dessert, or at hand to service your every need. While slavery is no longer acceptable in the developed world, legally or socially, the sad truth is that it is still rampant -- hidden in the underbelly of society (all around the world) and woven into the supply chain of some of our goods. Human trafficking is a $32 billion industry with 20.9 million people trafficked annually, according to the International Labor Organization. One-quarter of the world's slave labor are children.

I am rarely stuck for words. But today (29 May 2013) at the inauguration of 58 houses at Kokuthoduvai in the Mullativu District in Northern Sri Lanka, I was first stunned then overwhelmed by the resilience of the people who had built their own houses funded by Red Cross and now the enterprising manner they are going about doing organic farming by using animal and poultry dung, and adding leaves and vegetation, plus a bacteria that speeds the decaying process. Our world. Your move.
Fight Child Trafficking | End Child Hunger - Gandhi For Children — End Forced Child Labor Bangladesh's child population (under 18), comprising 45% of the total population are virtually unnoticed. They are vast untapped wealth that could be turned into effective manpower. Born mostly of poor parents, the male children supplement the meager income of the parents, while most female children in urban areas work as domestic help. A big number [...]
BRAC is a development success story, spreading solutions born in Bangladesh to 10 other countries around the world – a global leader in creating opportunity for the world’s poor. What started out as a limited relief operation in 1972 in a remote village of Bangladesh has turned into the largest development organisation in the world. Organising the poor using communities’ own human and material resources, BRAC (formerly Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee) catalyses lasting change, creating an ecosystem in which the poor have the chance to seize control of their own lives.

Global Policy Forum As governments try to address the challenge of financing sustainable development that makes justice to all three dimensions, they will have to do so relying on an international financial and trading system that to a great extent predates such commitments and did not evolve in light of the need to serve them. Additionally, in a world where the exponential growth of finance has led to a finance-driven economy, how can the agenda subordinate finance to a real economy with human rights at the center? In a side-event co-organized by CIDSE, Global Policy Forum, Righting Finance and Third World Network, we will discuss whether and to what extent the current international financial, monetary and trading systems are equipped to make this leap, and what needs to happen in the agreement on the post-2015 development agenda to support the enabling of such transition.

By Nicola Nasser* Obsessed with the “Iran threat,” which leads to its warmongering in Syria, Saudi Arabia is acting like a bull in a china shop, wreaking regional havoc in an already Arab fragile political environment and creating what George Joffe’ of Cambridge University’s Centre of International Studies, on last December 30, called the “second Arab cold war,” the first being the Saudi-led cold war with the Pan-Arab Egypt of Gamal Abdul Nasser since the 1960s. The kingdom stands now almost isolated politically. Its “going it alone” in the Syrian conflict has cornered Saudi Arabia into a self-inflicted foreign policy no-win deadlock, to be at odds with three super powers, including its strategic U.S. ally as well as Russia and China, in addition to regional heavy weights in Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Algeria, all who advocate a political settlement of the conflict. Within the six-member Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC), the kingdom navigates no better. The Peoples Voice
If you’ve rejected traditional religion (or were never religious to start), you may be asking, “Is that all there is?” It’s liberating to recognize that supernatural beings are human creations … that there are no such things as “spirit” or “transcendence”... that people are undesigned, unintended, and responsible for themselves. But what’s next?
Liste des pays qui ne possèdent pas d'armée — Wikipédia Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Cet article contient une liste des pays qui ne possèdent pas d'armée. En 2010, vingt-huit pays indépendants du monde ne possèdent pas d'armée. La plupart de ces pays sont de petite taille et ont des populations n'excédant pas les 500 000 habitants. De fait, ils préfèrent soit conclure un accord de défense avec un pays tiers (l'Islande est membre de l'Otan et comme Palau ou la Micronésie, elle a des accords de défense avec les États-Unis) qui précise que c'est l'armée d'un autre pays qui doit assurer leur défense en cas de nécessité, soit ils possèdent de petites forces paramilitaires (Maurice possède une force spéciale de 1 500 hommes) ou des gardes, comme Monaco qui possède une garde princière d'une centaine d'hommes.
