27 Million Slaves in the World Today

Pin It Now! My friend is working on a groundbreaking rockumentary, "Call + Response." It is coming out in September and I think it is going to be huge. Here is an excerpt from their website:
CALL+RESPONSE is a first of its kind feature documentary film that reveals the world’s 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2007, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.

Please go to the website and check it out. Watch the Trailer.
Digg it.

At this point I am not sure exactly what you can do to help to eradicate this problem, other than making people aware, spreading the word and seeing the film (all profits go to charity). But after the film comes out there will be an infrastructure set up so those that are ready to take action have some direction. Pin It Now!
