Make @Nestle honor its pledge to fight Ivorian Cocoa Child Labor! #CSR cc @ILONEWS #EndChildSlaveLabor2016

Thousands of child slaves need Nestle to follow through on its promise to #SayNØkay2ChildSlaveLabor in cocoa farming.

There has been progress in the effort to eliminate the worst forms of child labor worldwide. As a result of international commitments and the ILO convention to eradicate the worst forms of child labor, tens of millions of children around the world are out of work and in school. But as the world gets closer to the deadline in 2016 for the eradication of child labour around the world, the pace of progress is slowing.

Nestle has a social responsibility to fight to ensure an end to child slave labor in the cocoa farming processes.

We, as consumers, have a responsibility to hold Nestle to their pledge of redoubling efforts to stamp out the practice.

“83% of confirmed trafficking cases in the US are American born citizens? Between 700,000 and 4 million women and children will be trafficked this year, with the majority being forced to work in the sex trade.

In America, there are an estimated 40,000 men, women and children enslaved at this very moment,” say activists Jada Pinkett Smith and Mexican actress Salma Hayek.

Smith and Hayek recently launched a website called Don’tSellBodies.org, which serves as a resource for victims of Human Trafficking, and as an information hub to help people learn more about Human Trafficking.

Jada also released a new music video with her band Wicked Evolution for the song Nada Se Compara,which she sings in Spanish.

The video, directed by Hayek, was inspired by the real-life story of a young woman sold into sexual slavery by her boyfriend.

” If everyone who cares takes action, we can end slavery once and for all. It’s time.”
