Silicon Valley’s Online Slave Market – documentary

As a person whose foreparents were stolen from African 400 years ago, knowing that slavery still exists today fucks my head up. When will it end?

BBC News Arabic’s undercover investigation exposes the people in Kuwait breaking local and international laws on modern slavery, including a woman offering a child for sale. At the centre of this powerful investigative film is Fatou, a 16 year old in Kuwait City who has been there for nine months. We follow her rescue and journey back home to Guinea, West Africa and ask: what’s being done to control the apps promoted on Google, Apple and Facebook-owned Instagram?
