Placard G (Distribution of Wealth) Placard H (Slave Labor) Slavery - A Modern Issue Slave labor still exists today There are more people in slavery now than any other Ex: ~Sweatshops use slaves to produce soccer balls in Pakistan time in history. ~In many African countries, children are sold by starving
parents ~In the United States, people are sold as sex slaves or to profit a company Slave labor is viewed as profitable business. It exists as long as there are economic problems and people willing to exploit others for profit. Some families even sell their children because they cant afford
another mouth to feed. Types of Modern Slavery Consequences Bonded Labor: one is forced to work with low or no wages to pay off a debt Child Slavery: children ages 18
and under are forced to work Marital and Sexual Slavery: forcing sexual practices on someone who is unwilling Human Trafficking: the illegal trade of human beings

Placard K (Child Labor) NEPAL: Nepal has a handmade rug industry named good weave. When it was established about one million kids were kidnapped and put to work (GoodWeave.com, 2009). KENYA: Kenya is known for kids unloading and loading goods on
and off of automobiles. The children also fetch firewood and water, and mowing or slashing grass on a compound (Mary Mutua, 1997). PERU: In Peru children are involved in mining and quarrying, they work to collect and sort waste materials, and they also work at wholesale markets (Anna
Ensing, 2007) INDIA: In India kids as young as ten are working in textile industries. The working conditions are very harsh and almost slave like (Dan McDougall, 2007) THEN

(Good weave, 2012) One of the things that is considered child labor is selling things in the street or being in someones house as a domestic servant. (Good weave, 2012) An estimated 12% of children in India through ages 5-14 are in child labor activities. (Good weave, 2012)
Some children have to weave up to 18 hours a day. (Good weave, 2012) It can take 760 billion dollars and a 20 year period to end child labor. (Good weave, 2012) Causes: Causes of youth (child) labor violations include businesses and corporations looking for cheap workers, lack of government laws that are
preventing the corporations from hiring young workers. Poverty is another driving cause of youth labor violations because people need money to support their families. Finally the lack of parents education is another leading cause for youth labor violations. (UNICEF, 2012)

Working closely with a range of partners, we use our growing suite of investigative and intelligence capabilities to neutralize terrorist cells and operatives here in the U.S., to help dismantle extremist networks worldwide, and to cut off financing and other forms of support provided by terrorist sympathizers. ~The FBI website on terrorism Wanted by the FBI Most Wanted Terrorists On January 19, 2006, a federal grand jury in Eugene, Oregon, indicted Joseph Mahmoud

Domestic Terror Fugitives Boussora Jdey Terrorism is a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim. The strategy of terrorists is to commit acts of violence that draws the attention of the local populace, the government, and the world to their cause. The terrorists plan their attack to obtain the greatest publicity, choosing targets that symbolize what they oppose. The effectiveness of the terrorist act lies not in the act itself, but in the publics or governments
reaction to the act. For example, in 1972 at the Munich Olympics, the Black September Organization killed 11 Israelis. The Israelis were the immediate victims. But the true target was the estimated 1 billion people watching the televised event. The Black September Organization used the high visibility of the Munich Olympics to publicize its views on the plight of the Palestinian refugees. There are three perspectives of terrorism: the terrorists, the victims, and the general publics. The phrase one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter is a view terrorists themselves would gladly accept. Terrorists do not see themselves as evil. They believe they are legitimate combatants, fighting for what they believe in, by whatever means possible to attain their goals. A victim of a terrorist act sees the terrorist as a
criminal with no regard for human life. The general publics view though can be the most unstable. The terrorists take great pains to foster a Robin Hood image in hope of swaying the general publics point of view toward their cause. (www.terrorism-research.com) "Terrorism is the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

Womens rights around the world is an important indicator to understand global well-being. Yet, despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the economic. For example, women often work more than men, yet are paid less; gender discrimination affects girls and women throughout their lifetime; and women and girls are often are the ones that suffer the most poverty.
(www.globalissues.org) Thirty years after the adoption of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), many girls and women still do not have equal opportunities to realize rights recognized by law. In many countries, women are not entitled to own property or inherit land. Social exclusion, honor killings, female genital mutilation, trafficking, restricted mobility and early marriage among others, deny the right to health to women and girls and increase illness and death throughout the life-course. We will not see sustainable progress unless we fix failures in health systems and society so that girls and women enjoy equal access to health information and services, education, employment and political positions. ~ Dr Margaret Chan, Director-General, World Health Organization
Successes Poor women gaining greater access to savings and credit mechanisms worldwide, due to microcredit loans. A dwindling number of countries that do not allow women to vote including Bhutan (one vote per house), Lebanon (partial), Brunei (no-one can vote), Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (expected in 2010), and the Vatican City.

Placard T (Environmental Changes) Globalization is a process that links people around the world as a result of shared activities and interests. Fueled by technology and expanding communication network, globalization creates cultural, social, environmental and economic connections among countries. The environment contains a variety of shared resources, such as the atmosphere, land, oceans, and rivers that are affected by the decisions and actions of people in many countries. Responsibility for these resources also must be shared, with countries working together to develop ways to protect and sustain the environment. Animals and plants benefit in many ways from global interactions. Endangered wildlife programs support and preserve threatened species Developing nations benefit from information about more effective crop-growing techniques
Alternative energy is shared among nations, reducing the need for fossil fuels. B T U Increased global interaction also
threatens animals and plants: invasive species harm nonnative ecosystems, illegal animal trafficking puts species at risk, and increased agricultural use of land to meet global food demands results in deforestation and loss of animal habitats.
