Not for Sale [videorecording]: The Documentary
Call Number: Media Services
This documentary is based on the book by David Batstone. The film crew traveled extensively investigating the modern slave trade and shot undercover footage of trafficking operations. The crew also captured on film the spirit of those dedicated abolitionists working in the field to emancipate the victims.
ABC News program features investigative filmmakers Len Morris and Robin Romano, who have exposed child labor operations around the globe. A gravel quarry in India, a Kenyan coffee plantation, a fishing platform on the Sea of Sumatra, even farms in the United States -- the program shows how extensively these and other locations depend on child workers. With commentary from children risking reprisals in order to be heard, and from U.S. Senator Tom Harkin, who has sponsored numerous bills to combat child labor practices, the program clearly links a painful global reality with the complacency of Western society.
"Trafficking involves the movement
of persons to exploit their labor. Trafficking in persons is a form of
slavery and encompasses debt bondage, peonage, and involuntary
servitude. Historically, trafficking of women and children was
associated with the capture of young women and girls for forced
prostitution." (Encyclopedia of Prostitution and Sex Work, 2006, Call Number: REF 306.74 En19 v.1)
