    THE UNIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE OUT OF CONTROL

    This situation has been caused due to a union out of control. They have turned the situation around and used reverse psychology. They want you to feel sorry for the workers who have actually caused the problem to start with.

    Tata, the transnational Indian conglomerate whose wholly-owned subsidiary Tetley makes the world famous Tetley Teas, has taken 6,500 people hostage through hunger. The hostages are nearly 1,000 tea plantation workers and their families on the Nowera Nuddy Tea Estate in West Bengal, India. The workers, living in poverty and always on the edge of hunger, are locked out and have been denied wages for all but two days' work since early August.

    Management of the plantation, in which Tata holds the largest ownership share and exercises control, is pushing the entire plantation population into starvation in retaliation for a worker protest in August against the punishing treatment of an 8-months' pregnant worker who was denied maternity leave, forced to pluck tea, and then denied adequate medical treatment. Workers want the estate reopened and their wages paid, but reject the suspension of 8 workers who have been singled out for protesting vile abuses. They refuse to renounce their right to peacefully protest abusive exploitation - and they need your support. Use the message below to the CEOs of Tata and Teley to tell them to stop starving tea workers now and meet the demands of the Nowera Nuddy Estate (Tata Tea) Workers’ Action Committee.

    I'm sure Europe's vision of Africa is a severely malnourished kid in absolutely abysmal state staring at the camera while a fly crawls across his eye. True photo, but not in any way an average representation of Africa.

    However, when it comes to filling the begging bowl, it works well.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
