Yes, those abducted Nigerian schoolgirls really could be sold into slavery. Here's how. - Vox

Modern slavery is widespread and horrifying. Walk Free, an Australia-based anti-slavery group, estimates that about 30 million people are still forced into sex slavery (either in brothels or as "child brides"), hard labor, or marching in armies as a child. Modern slavery thrives on human trafficking, the recruitment and transportation of persons marked for slavery or other kinds of exploitation.

Apartheid in South Africa : un album sur Flickr

Apartheid became the official policy of the Government of South Africa in 1948, following the election of the Herenigde Nasionale Party, later renamed the National Party. Under this policy, racial discrimination was institutionalized. The lives of the Africans, who made up almost 75 per cent of the population, were controlled by the unjust segregation laws from birth to the grave. They were proscribed where to live, who to marry and the type of education they would receive in the country of their birth.

Good Gifts Catalogue - Gifts that really count

"Though everyone knows that giving is infinitely more enriching than receiving, finding the right outlet for generosity can sometimes be hard. The Good Gifts Catalogue solves the conundrum brilliantly. I'm particularly taken with the 'Support a Fishwife' gift, which buys boats and equipment for impoverished communities in South India. This isn't something that you'll ever find in an Argos catalogue, but it does have the edge over a food blender."
