eating chocolate can be a crime!!

Here’s a trailer for a video this Dutch journalist, Teun van de Keuken made concerning his own journey in the Human Trafficking market.  A big issue in world-wide slavery is cocoa plantations.  Much of our chocolate is made with slave labor. . . did you know that?  So this man decided to do something about it.  He purposely ate slave-made chocolate and prosecuted himself.

From what I understand, he was NOT convicted.  In fact, he had to repeal the decision and the second time was at least chastised for it.  But he is not giving up and has made his own chocolate factory, produced slave free.

I hear he is now trying to get an ex-slave to prosecute him.  He’s doing his best to get the word out!
