Little SerfsStreaming Video - 2006
Although child labor has been banned in India, it still thrives because too many see a profit in the grueling work of young hands. This program spotlights the exploitation of children as bond slaves in the rug-weaving, bangle-making, quarrying, and gemstone-cutting industries and the measures being taken to eradicate this practice. Advocates including John Matthew, of the Rugmark Foundation; Kailash Satyathri, of the Coalition Against Child Slavery; and antislavery activist Swami Agnievesh speak out-as well as Rishi Poddar, an unabashed carpet exporter who defends the distasteful practice of child labor.
