IS BLACK LIVES MATTER RUNNING INTERFERENCE FOR CHILD SLAVERY IN AFRICA BY THEIR MULTINATIONAL CORPORATE SPONSORS?!
His name is Dorsen and he is one of an army of children, some just four years old, working in the vast polluted mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where toxic red dust burns their eyes, and they run the risk of skin disease and a deadly lung condition. Here, for a wage of just 8p a day, the children are made to check the rocks for the tell-tale chocolate-brown streaks of cobalt – the prized ingredient essential for the batteries that power electric cars.
And it’s feared that thousands more children could be about to be dragged into this hellish daily existence – after the historic pledge made by Britain to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 and switch to electric vehicles….
Chinese middle-men working for the Congo Dongfang Mining Company have the stranglehold in DRC, buying the raw cobalt brought to them in sacks carried on bicycles and dilapidated old cars daily from the Katanga mines. They sit in shacks on a dusty road near the Zambian border, offering measly sums scrawled on blackboards outside – £40 for a ton of cobalt-rich rocks – that will be sent by cargo ship to minerals giant Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt in China and sold on to a complex supply chain feeding giant multinationals.
Challenged by the Washington Post about the appalling conditions in the mines, Huayou Cobalt said ‘it would be irresponsible’ to stop using child labour, claiming: ‘It could aggravate poverty in the cobalt mining regions and worsen the livelihood of local miners.’ Continue reading
Ivermectin in the Middle of Growing Political Tensions in South Africa: The South African pollical party known as the National Freedom Party or “NFP” appears perturbed that a well-known, economical generic drug used throughout much of Africa to fight parasites has been banned from importation in that country with threat of criminal prosecution. As TrialSite recently reported about the decision by the South African health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), it seemed coincidental that after a recent presentation about the meta-analysis evaluating Ivermectin studies in association to COVID-19 that the national drug regulator’s response was to threaten anybody that imports the drug with jail.

“…the Herero and the Nama did not prove quite as ‘inferior’ as the German occupiers thought. For years they stubbornly resisted being driven off their lands into the desert to die, despite huge loss of life at the hands of the Schutztruppe (colonial army) and their ‘cleansing patrols’.
But by 1905 the survivors were weary and weakened. The final straw came when the Kaiser issued an imperial decree expropriating the African lands.
Most of the Africans surrendered and were rounded up into concentration camps to build the colony’s new railways – gruelling work where men were routinely beaten and women workers systematically raped. on one section of the line, two-thirds of the prisoners died in 18 months.” Continue reading
“…reports of inhumane treatment have continued to filter back and there is no end in sight. Some of the job seekers have been tortured, raped, drowned, burnt, and beheaded, etc.
According to a watchdog report, more than 50 Ugandans working as maids, guards and drivers have died this year alone, 34 of whom reportedly committed suicide.” Continue reading

A typical workday for domestic workers in Saudi Arabia is between 15 to 18 hours in a day.
Imagine somebody working straight for 18 hours in a day out of 24 hours and they pay them about $5 to $7 per day and guess what some of this employers would refuse to pay the employees for a long time.
In fact sometimes for years, they may not pay the employees. They would say we are giving you food, we’re giving you a place to sleep even if it’s outside. They would say; what do you need the money for. So many employers are actually killed their employees if they keep asking for their money. There are no off days, no rest hours, there is no vacation, no nothing. Continue reading

“The Arab Slave Trade Sparked One of The Largest Slave Rebellions in History”
“[It] grew to involve over 500,000 enslaved and free men.” Continue reading
“While most slaves who went to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth. …a minimum of 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East.
Since at least 80% of those captured by the Muslim slave traders were calculated to have died before reaching the slave markets, it is believed that the death toll from 14 hundred years of Arab – Muslim slave raids into Africa could have been as high as 112 million.
