Gister ging ik naar de City Pathe.nl in Amsterdam.

ZIE DE AFSPEELLIJST : 
De film Tony is een documentaire film die nu in Pathe.nl draait.
Teun van de Keuken is een journalist die zichzelf aanklaagt in het jaar 2005 omdat hij Chocola zou hebben gegeten wat door kinderarbeid is vervaardigd.

Anno 2016 is het alweer 10 jaar dat Teun en zijn team werkt aan een verbetering in de wereld van chocola en het bestreiden van kinderarbeid.
Child Labour Control Systems ... zijn nog niet of nauwelijks bestaande termen in het jaar 2005.
Zoek meer informatie online via deze link. : CHILD LABOR AND CHOCOLATE


De chocolade industrie is door de onbewuste consument onderheven aan kinderarbeid.
Door het harde werk van een aantal journalisten uit Nederland ontstaat er in 2005 een chocoladereep die eigenlijk 100% slaafvrij zou moeten zijn. Na wat onderzoek en contact met Max Havelaar mogen de groep journalisten het fairtrade label op de chocoladerepen plakken.
Binnen 1 dag vliegen de chocoladerepen de deur uit en bestellen ze via de Belgische fabrikant nog een hoeveelheid aan chocoladerepen. De garantie van een slavenvrije chocoladereep blijkt dan nog niet gegarandeerd te zijn, want de vrachtbrieven en herkomst van de chocolade blijkt nog niet geheel duidelijk. Dat Tony een Willy Wonka reep wil maken die 100% slaafvrij is maakt deze film nobel en erg interessant om naar te kijken.
De jonge journalisten hebben na 10 jaar hun lesje wel geleerd en maken nu deel uit van de wereldeconomie en kunnen zich op de kaart zetten als 1 van de grootste chocoladefabrikanten van Nederland of Europa? ... maar is dit wel waar? Want in spotjes en reclames word verteld dat het zo is, maar wie gaat ons zeggen dat dit echt zo is?  ... De keuringsdienst van waren heeft als doel gehad om mensen bewust te maken van de producten die zij kunnen kopen en wat er in deze producten zit.
Door het nobele werk van de journalisten heeft de wereld eindelijk een verandering in het bewustzijn en kan men eindelijk praten over ( The elephant in the room - #TEITR ) ... dat chocolade niet altijd gemaakt werd door de eerlijke blanke ondernemers maar vaak door zelfs kinderarbeid en slavernij.
Gaat dit ooit 100% slaafvrij worden? .. kijk ook op http://www.tonyschocolonely.com/

The road to 100% slave-free

Yeehaw—our first lawsuit! Bellissimo, a Swiss chocolate producer, sues Tony’s Chocolonely, claiming that “slave-free chocolate is impossible to produce”. They also claim that Tony’s is damaging the reputation of other chocolate producers. Fear not, justice is served. The court rules in our favour. However, we do adjust the “slave-free” logo for all our chocolate bars. From now on we’re on “the road to 100% slave-free chocolate” to underscore our ambition to make not just our own, but all the world’s chocolate slave-free. If we ever achieve this goal, we’ll change the logo back, we promise.
In the same year the Dutch courts decline to prosecute Teun as a “cocoa criminal”, they do recognise the “serious abuses that victimise young people” in the cocoa industry. The court also states that it is the responsibility of both chocolate producers and consumers to rid the world of this hideous problem

[On July 30, 2015, Tulane University researchers released their latest study — “Survey Research on Child Labor in West African Cocoa Growing Areas”– we present highligths here written and compiled by Mary Donovan, contributing writer to the CLC.]
  1. Child labor in cocoa production in West Africa is increasing. The total numbers of children in cocoa production, child labor in cocoa production, and hazardous work by children in cocoa production in West Africa all increased from 2009/10 to 2013/14. In 2013/14 there were 2,260,407 children working in cocoa production in West Africa. 1,303,009 of those children work in Cote d’Ivoire and 957,398 work in Ghana.
  1. A plan to eliminate child labor in the industry exists. Fifteen years ago, representatives of the international cocoa industry signed the Harkin-Engel Protocol “to eliminate the worst forms of child labor in the cocoa sectors of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.” The Protocol provides a framework for accountability and outlines action steps. The Ministers of Labor from Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire signed a Declaration of Joint Action to support the implementation of the Protocol in 2010. In spite of this initiative, child labor in cocoa production in West Africa has increased.
  1. Cote d’Ivoire experienced an especially large growth. The numbers of children working in cocoa production increased by 59%, the number of children doing child labor in cocoa production increased by 48%, and the number of children doing hazardous work in cocoa production grew by 46%. Cote d’Ivoire is the world’s largest cocoa producer.
  1. The number of children working in cocoa production fell slightly in Ghana. Five years of peace allowed the government to make social and environmental improvements. However there is still progress to be made, with 1 million children in cocoa production and over 50% of children working in cocoa production doing hazardous work.
  1. 2.03 million children were found in hazardous work in cocoa production in the countries combined. Some of the types of work Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana consider to be hazardous are working alone on a farm, cutting down trees, burning fields, applying chemicals, carrying heavy loads, and using machetes.
  1. More children have been exposed to dangerous chemicals. The number of children in hazardous work exposed to agro-chemicals increased by over 44%. Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana both prohibit the exposure of children to these kinds of chemicals. Agro-chemicals pose a greater risk to children than adults.
  1. Both girls and boys work in cocoa production in Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. In 2013/14 around 60% of boys and 40% of girls were involved in child labor in agriculture.
  1. Migration within the two countries impacts cocoa production. Older children and young adults are more likely to migrate away from agricultural areas, leaving a very young and very old workforce. Cote d’Ivoire also has a large population of immigrants, mostly from Burkina Faso, who often migrate to cocoa growing areas.
  1. Access to education improved. The percentage of children from 5-17 years attending school increased in both countries. In 2013/14, 71% of children working in cocoa production attended school in Cote d’Ivoire, and 96% in Ghana attended school. Both governments have prioritized education, and have made efforts not to let work interfere with a child’s right to education.
  1. There is work to do. 1.5 million children need to be removed from hazardous work in cocoa production by 2020 to meet the Framework for Action of the Harkin-Engel Protocol. This goal is increasingly difficult with a growing global demand for chocolate and increased cocoa production in Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana. The Protocol still remains relevant as a plan of action to eliminate child labor in the West African cocoa industry.
