Nepali slaves in the Middle East - video
Pete Pattison investigates the trafficking of people escaping poverty and conflict in Nepal. Unscrupulous agents take huge sums of money from them for work abroad then consign them to slavery and appalling conditions in the Middle East. Many are abused by their employers and some are killed at the hands of agents
Date of the video is april last year, but still going on, no solution for the poorest. Worldly power is so admired...!!!http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/video/2 ... ates-video
Same thing happens to Afghan refugess during their transit through Turkey. They are bonded to textile factories in order to pay off their debts to smugglers. The smugglers con them by saying it costs $x to get to Europe but once they get them as far as Istanbul they so now you have to pay another $x for the rest of the journey.
I have personally had contact with hundreds of Afghan kids that were forced to work in the Turkish textiles industry.
Paying till A and then another higher sum till B and then..! Also happened in Nepal for papers of refugees. And at the end: no papers possible. China, you see, we can nothing do.
Many people in Asia are working hard very long days to provide quality cloth shops, not sure they will be payed each day the little sum the west may not know.
The one way power and energy sucking, all for ego, yes my lord.
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
