Report: 29 million girls, women victims of modern slavery  

 

A new report estimates that 29 million women and girls are victims of modern slavery, exploited by practices including forced labour, forced marriage, debt-bondage and domestic servitude.

Grace Forrest, co-founder of the Walk Free anti-slavery organisation, said Friday that means one in every 130 women and girls is living in modern slavery today, more than the population of Australia.

"The reality is that there are more people living in slavery today than any other time in human history," she told a U.N. news conference.

Walk Free defines modern slavery "as the systematic removal of a person’s freedom, where one person is exploited by another for personal or financial gain," she said.

According to the report, titled "Stacked Odds," women account for 99% of all victims of forced sexual exploitation, 84% of all victims of forced marriage, and 58% of all victims of forced labour.

The Bible could be a victim in Trump's trade war 

 

The trade war President Donald Trump has waged against China could literally turn biblical.

If negotiations between Washington and Beijing falter, Trump has vowed to place tariffs on all of America's imports from China. Book publishers are warning that those tariffs will cause the price of printing the Bible to soar and potentially spark shortages.

The problem is that most US publishers print the Bible in China because of the high cost and complexity involved in printing a text with roughly 800,000 words. HarperCollins Christian Publishing, a leading Bible publisher, estimates that about three-quarters of its Bible manufacturing expenses are in China.

The proposed tariffs amount to "levying a 'Bible Tax' on consumers and religious and educational organizations," HarperCollins Christian Publishing CEO Mark Schoenwald wrote in a letter last month to Trump's top trade official.

Mexican Avocados Celebrate 20 Years in the United States 

 

The North American Free Trade Agreement, also known as NAFTA, has reemerged as a hot topic in the past year as President Trump has questioned the merits of the multination deal. But here’s a fact about the agreement you might not be aware of: We have NAFTA to thank for Mexican avocados. According to the marketing organization Avocados From Mexico, the 1994 deal paved the way for Mexican avocados to be imported into the United States, which first occurred 20 years ago in 1997. And to honor this momentous two-decade anniversary, the group threw a celebration this week.
